Movies entertain, thrill, terrify, seduce, and inspire us, but what would they really be without the humble popcorn, candy, or treat that accompanies them? These overlooked bites add so much to the experience (who didn’t accidentally toss popcorn into the air during Jurassic Park? You know the scene I’m talking about). With the Oscars just a few days away, we wanted to shine the spotlight on those delicious and delightful snacks that make movie-going such a truly enjoyable event.
Any one of these award-winning treats will make your Oscar party the talk of the town. Plus, don’t forget to vote on your favorite films with your very own Oscars ballot before the big night.
Now onto the awards!
