Snacks can make or break your viewing experience because what you choose to eat is just as important as what you choose to watch! Start your next TV show binge and movie marathon with our round-up of healthy movie snacks! 


Cozy up on your couch with a blanket and some snacks for your stay in movie night! Now for some of us, or rather most of us, we can’t have a true movie night without a spread of snacks. While the go to snack for any movie night is the age old popcorn, doused in buttery goodness, sometimes butter popcorn just doesn’t call to us. When we’re looking for new movie snacks, there’s just so much to consider, especially when it comes to snacking with intention, or when we’ve made necessary lifestyle changes for the betterment of our health. Just because we’ve made these changes doesn’t mean we should have to omit one of the best things about seeing a movie; the snacks! Now that there are thousands of brands out there that are focused on making products for the modern diets, there’s sure to be something out there that aligns with making your best movie night experience! Don’t know where to start looking though? No worries, we’ve got you covered with this healthy movie night snacks guide!

Sometimes it’s hard to give other snacks a try when you’ve found comfort in the tried and true snacks, but you can still definitely elevate your popcorn game with a few game changing brands and flavors that’ll make you more invested in the flavors of your snack than the movie itself! 

With inspirations pulled from the pop art movement, founders Mike and Venessa wanted their love of this art movement to speak to the masses in a fun, and delicious way, and thus Pop Art Snacks was born!

Change up your snack roster with this popcorn brand, and trust us, you’ll be saying “butter? I hardly knew her!” by the time you’ve reached the end of the bag before the ending credits of the movie!

It’s a sweet movie night when the chocolates come out!

Some of us like it salty, some of us like it sweet, chocolate is another almost necessary addition to this list that we simply couldn’t ignore when thinking about movie night snacks. They also say chocolate snacks are the number one snack to munch on whenever a romance is on, but of course, it isn’t exclusive to just romance, but if you’re indulging in a sweeter side for your movie night and want something equally as sweet, here’s a few healthy chocolate snacks to consider!
