Ever since I was younger, I have loved getting two things at the movie theater: popcorn and something sweet. Usually it was Junior Mints, because that's what my dad loves. My favorite thing to do is eat a handful of popcorn and then a Junior Mint. Sometimes I'd put both in my mouth at the same time. Classy, I know. And no, I never put the Junior Mints in the bag of popcorn. That is blasphemy. You could waste chocolate that way by letting it melt to the sides of the bag.
But lately when I go to the movie theater I have been mixing it up and getting popcorn and Reese's Pieces. Chocolate and peanut butter with popcorn? I'm down. It's salty and sweet, my favorite combo. Like dipping french fries in milkshakes. Mmmmm.
So last night when I was at the grocery store and saw this:
I knew I had to try it. I was leery at first because I don't like kettlecorn as much as just salty, buttery popcorn. But luckily the popcorn was regular salty style and the chocolate and peanut butter drizzled on it? Heaven. It was the best sweet and salty combo I have had in a long time. Now let me just say that I love popcorn. I mean, loooooove popcorn. I hate sharing it. When I go to the movies I like going with just B (or by myself) because then the popcorn is mostly mine. B likes popcorn, but he has self control. I have none. So last night I opened the bag and ate half of it. And then put it away because whoa. And then a half hour later I got it back out and ate the rest of it. Yes, I ate that entire bag in a two hour period.
I texted my friend Cinnamon* later:
Me: I bought a bag of popcorn that had chocolate and peanut butter and it was so delicious I ate the whole thing. Like...I bought it and ate it within a 2 hr window.
Cinnamon: You eat slow hahahaha
Me: Hahahah I put it away....and then got it back out.
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is what friends are for.
So go buy this popcorn. It's so good. I should have bought more since it was on sale. On second though, it's probably better that I didn't.....
*No, that is not her real name, obvs.
