We've all done it—you know, that thing where we shove our favorite snacks into our coat pockets and purses and smuggle them into our local movie theater. For some of us it just boils down to tastier options (stale popcorn is all too common at major theater chains), and for others it's about dietary restrictions or concession-stand prices ($5 for water?!). Be that as it may: Many of us are clearly pushing it when it comes to smuggling in and scarfing down contraband in our theater seats. Here, 6 major movie theater food offenses we've come across recently:
1. Corn on the cob
Corn on the cob is one of the world's most irresistible snacks, but it has no place on your person when you're in a movie theater. For starters, you're definitely going to need to bring dental floss as well. You're not going to be that person, are you?
2. Wine in a pouch
Is sneaking in pouch-portable wine really worth the potential movie theater security run-in? Probably not. Save your riskier gambits for the top-shelf stuff, please.
3. Seaweed and other salads
Dressings are stinky: That's a scientific fact. Nobody has ever opened a sesame-oil-laden seaweed salad and said "wow, that hardly smells at all." Also, don't be the rude seatmate flinging chopsticks all over the place when you hardly know how to use them.
4. Ice cream
Is that going in your pocket? You know that's going to be a disgusting, sticky mess in five minutes or less, right?
5. Turkey breast slices and peanut butter
We get it. You're doing the high-protein, low-carb diet thing... but it's never okay to smuggle in zipper baggies full of deli meat, tomatoes and natural peanut butter. If you're that hungry, this is a good time to examine your ability to snack in your car.
6. Burgers of any style or quality level
We're pretty sure a smushed-up Whopper from the inside of your purse isn't what Mother Nature had in mind when she was sorting out how to nourish you. This is why we can't have nice things.
