How Many of These Snacks Did Your Mom Sneak into Movies?

Remember when $20 bought you a movie ticket, popcorn, and a drink? Well those days ended years ago and our parents adjusted to the harsh economic times by teaching us to skip the $6 bag of Skittles and sneak in our own food. Let’s give mami and papi a big gracias for saving us all that $$$ and reminisce about the crazy sh*t she’d make us sneak in…

Mami, tía, y abuelita always had us pack the biggest tote bag we had.

Practice made perfect and our skills got better with each movie.

We mastered how to organize that bag. The heaviest goes to the bottom and you make sure you have something to obstruct the usher’s view.

Drinks required more preparation.

You had to find thermos and make sure it closed properly. No one wants a wet purse.

Most times we were flawless.

Other times, we failed with style.

And the family used our innocence to get past security.

Momma trained everyone, including our brothers.

Mom spent an hour preparing our #moviesnacks.

We matched our treats to the movie’s theme.

What started as snacks soon became full meals.

Burritos are compact and wrapped in foil for a reason.
