What Your Movie Theater Order Says About You

Posted: Updated:

Popcorn or candy? It's the classic movie theater dilemma. If you're still having this debate, however, you need to open your eyes. Don't you know that you can, and should, get both?

If you're a purist and believe in only having one or the other, we hate to inform you, but you've been missing out on one of the great pleasures in life: the sweet and salty combo of buttery movie theater popcorn and chocolatey candy -- or gummies if you're into that sort of thing.

Whatever your favorite snack is, eating at the movies is one of those gifts in life that should be taken seriously, because it's the best. You get a free pass to eat junk food, with no judgements, while watching something awesome on a screen that's bigger than your house. Before you continue making grave mistakes at the movies, read on to see what your movie theater order says about you.
