And the Oscar for Best Snack Goes to …

in Boutique Businesses, Entertaining


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!

    I haven’t been too excited about the oscars…until now! I love the idea of snacking & sipping cocktails throughout the (sometimes) boring show. My favorites are the Treat Spiced Pecans, Simple & Crisp Pear Crisps, and the Espresso Bar from Chocolat Moderne to keep me awake when I begin to drift off to sleep during the long show. What does everyone else like?

      It’s so hard to choose, but I do love the Espresso Bar (I’m a sucker for anything with coffee). Also, the Simple & Crisps are the perfect with a good cheese. And really what goes better with a night of celebrity watching?
