Which Movie Snacks Shine the Brightest?

Movie SnacksA great movie is driven by its stars. Actors and actresses like Tom Cruise, Jennifer Lawrence, and Chris Pratt take blockbuster films to the next level while putting butts in the seats. But anyone who loves going to the theater can tell you the real lead in any viewing experience.

The movie snacks.

Everyone has his or her favorite candy, and movie time is perfect for indulging. Chocolate peanuts, sour gummies, and fruity chews are all popular choices at the concession stand. Here at Miracle Strip Popcorn, we like to kick things up a notch with carnival style cotton candy made with one of our professional-grade machines. Nothing can keep you from your candy during the excitement of a movie.

While some like to satisfy their sweet tooth, others lean towards options a little more savory. The best movie snacks also tend to show up at other spectator events, like the ballpark. Hot dogs and nachos, both commonly available at movie theaters, are undeniably delicious options.

By now you’re probably wondering when we were going to mention the biggest star of all. There is perhaps nothing else that goes hand-in-hand so well with a movie as popcorn-salty, buttery popcorn that keeps you munching from the very first scene to the closing credits. Movie theater popcorn makes every other snack an afterthought. Even if you plan on trying something else, the overwhelming aroma that greets you when walking through the door is all it takes to bring you back.

No matter which movie snack you choose, everyone knows you’ll need a tasty beverage to wash it all down. A classic, often overlooked choice is fresh squeezed lemonade, a treat still offered by some of the old-fashioned movie houses. Frozen drinks have become a more popular choice these days. The go by a number of names, but we’re pretty sure our sno-cones and shaved ice can do the trick.

Hungry yet? The best part about these popular movie theater snacks is that you can easily provide them at your next event. At Miracle Strip Popcorn, we sell the equipment you need to make popcorn, cotton candy, hot dogs, nachos, and a variety of beverages. Once you realize the leading role that movie snacks play, you have the power to take your next big showing to the next level.

Having a get together with your closest friends could be a way to de-stress, catch up, and have some fun on a weekend.

Tips for Planning a Child’s Birthday Party

A child’s birthday party is usually a very fun and memorable event. When planning the party, first things first– ask the child what he or she would like at his or her party, within reason. Ideally, agree on some sort of theme, such as princesses or pirates. You can then make or buy decorations that fit the theme, and invite attendees to dress up in costumes.

Next, decide on the date and time of the party, and where you want to have it. Be sure and plan it so other kids can attend without having to compete with some other community or school event taking place that same day and time. Keep in mind sleep schedules and appropriate times for children of a certain age. For instance, you wouldn’t throw a party for a 3-year-old at 8pm at night.

Send out invites to the party. Before the party takes place, plan and get the kind of food and drinks guests will like. Candy always goes over well at children’s birthday parties. In fact, if you want to be the cool parent, rent a popcorn machine, a sno cone machine or a cotton candy machine from Miracle Strip Popcorn, and one or all of those items will be a big hit at the party!

Great parties include interactive games and colorful, fun things to play with, so plan to have the kids participate in physical and mental activities, such as coloring, hide-and-seek, or dancing to upbeat music. It’s also important to consider the length of the party– for some, an hour works, while for others, a party could last three or four hours. Consider both your child’s energy level and your own to decide the time the party starts and the time the party ends.

Meanwhile, don’t forget the cake and candles– always a highlight of a birthday party. And if you want to rent candy and snack making machines, Miracle Strip Popcorn can be contacted at 850-864-1139.
