candy in the movie theater-

do you buy the candy there or sneak it in? I broke a tooth on the movie candy when I was a kid and never ate their stuff again.
if they want to pitch a fit, I can indeed go without, but I will not eat their stuff.

  • One more thing...I bet they would actually make more money if they lowered their prices because then people might buy it indtead of bringing in their own snacks, lol!

  • I always bring my bigger purse or even my diaper bag and fill it up with candy and soda etc, they don't check it, plus their candy is old and way too expensive.

  • We bring our own! If I am paying $9.50 to get into the theater, I am not going to spend another $5 on the same candy I can buy at Target for $2.

  • we hit the dollar store for candy and we buy the giant soda and share 1 of those to 2 people or sometimes we all get our own and we will buy 1 big popcorn
    NO way will I pay 5 bucks for candy that I can get for a dollar!

  • Last year or so was the last time my husband and I went to the movies and we paid more for two drinks and a popcorn than we did for our darn tickets. I told him that I'll be bringing our own snacks in my big purse from now on.

  • Sometimes we bring it, but if we didn't think about it, we buy it. I'm not a big candy person though, and don't have to have it. I always have to get popcorn though, and a soda...and usually a pretzel or nachos. I've even gotten pizza there, lol. For some reason, when I'm there all of that crap starts sounding soooo good. The one thing I refuse to buy again is bottled water. Last time I paid 3.50 for a bottle of Dasani. I'm not cheap, but that's pretty bad when you can buy a 12 pack for that price. They so rip you off on the concessions.
