This is based on Tom Yum Soup, which is a spicy soup made from lemon grass and fish sauce. Instead, when enjoying a movie in Thailand many patrons choose Tom Yum seasoned popcorn.
This is a classic in the United Kingdom and is similar to what we call “kettle corn” in the United States.
The go to movie theater snack in the United States is a big tub of popcorn topped with movie theater butter (which isn’t really butter, but tastes like it).
Similar to a kebab. This is the perfect movie theater snack because it’s healthier than the classic options and you don’t even have to get your hands dirty!
Crispy fish balls served on a skewer.
Large leaf cutter ants are used that have a big abdomen so they are easy to locate and pick up in the dark theater.
A delicious meal to enjoy while watching a film.
Fried dough filled with potato and meat or vegetables. These have lots of spices and a deliciously strong flavor.
Shrimp and pork dumplings are a favorite of movie goers in Hong Kong.
Similar to what we call “nachos” in America, but topped with pickled pig skins and hot sauce.
Exactly like it sounds. Beef jerky but made from reindeer.
This doesn’t seem like the best movie snack to me, but Russia is definitely known for its caviar.
What a great idea! This movie theater favorite is a mixture of red wine and Coca Cola.
A fermented drink made from rye bread and flavored with mint or berries. Sort of like kombucha, but a little different.
Salted licorice is a favorite in the Netherlands, sometimes eaten in a trail-mix like concoction.
The original movie snack is still popular in China. Dried peanuts were a favorite back when movie theaters first became popular.
A salty dried fish perfect for munching on through a compelling film.
Another salty fish snack which makes sense for this island nation.
Salted sunflower seeds are great for eating throughout a film. A small bag can last you a couple of hours.
I’ve never had these but they sound great. I wonder what they use for the falafel flavoring?
