Movie Munchies

“The movie-theater-sized packages of candy may seem like reasonable portions,” says Amy Keating, R.D., a Consumer Reports Dietitian. “But one box usually contains several hundred calories.” And it’s all to easy to keep dipping your hand into a box or tub of popcorn when you are engrossed in a film. Keating suggests limiting yourself to about 100 calories worth of snacks by using our chart of popular concession stand goodies as a guide.

12 Haribo Gold-Bears, 26 Reese’s Pieces, 5 Swedish Fish, 46 Sno-caps, 2.4 cups popcorn, 4 Twizzlers, 8 Milk Duds
