Favourite Movie Junk Food!

It is an unwritten Universal law that all beings must have a junky snack at the movies. Below are my favourites in order of preference!


#1: Coke and Popcorn. A must. Generally popcorn is vegan as to cut costs they use salt/oil flavouring or nature identical butter flavouring which means the flavour is chemically synthethised as opposed to derived from the original source. Personally, I prefer the salt/oil combo and like to steer clear of the nature identical flavouring but I am not too pedantic about it. Hoyts/Greater Union/Grand Cinemas are safe from when I last checked.




#2: Either Bacon Pringles or Texas BBQ rock my socks if I cannot have popcorn. Or maybe I can have popcorn and I will have these as well. Whoa. They even have a little checkbox at the back assuring the buyer they are indeed vegan. Some vegans argue that the company who make this are evil thus supporting them is not morally acceptable. I disagree, I think, consumers need to support any vegan product - no matter who makes it, because it is increasing demand for vegan products as opposed to doing nothing.



#3: Hard Jubes. I love them really hard and chewy. And that is what you get for AU$1 at KMART.



#4: FRYS Peppermint Cream Chocolate Bars. They also come in orange and plain cream. Simply delicious - but one is never enough. Usually find these at random petrol stations, SUPA IGA's & Woolies.
#5: Arnotts Choc Ripple. These are too delicious and a great Ninja Vegan product! I can demolish this packet in under 1 second. True story.




#6: Chupa Chups. Its between these and Skittles. I choose these because they last for ages and the flavours are so intense! I love orange and cola the most.

Wow. I am totally dropping in to Kmart tomorrow on my way home.

Amy K said...

Yay! Careful, at just $1 a bag, you end up leaving the store with way too much!

So I found the hard jubes (and am eating them right now!!!), but the soft jubes and the licorice bullets had gelatin listed on their packs. :o(

Still on the lookout for the frogs!

Amy K said...

What! last I checked soft jubes and the bullets (dark choc ones) had no gelatine/milk! I'll be marching in there tomorrow!!

Amy K said...

Steph!

Licorice bullets are fine! (the dark ones).

Soft jubes used to have no gelatine, and the hard jubes did - now they have swapped it around. WEIRD!

Pringles are a product of Proctor and Gamble, a devil corporation that test on animals

Sigh, but consider, buy purchasing a product which clearly states on the labelling 'vegan', we are indeed supporting a 'vegan' product, not the companys non vegan product, thus making it apparent to the company that vegan products of their range has demand. With the philosophy you are suggesting, I could also say "I will never buy groceries from Coles because they sell meat and id be supporting murder!!".

Think about things, don't just say things are evil.

we can not deny that junk food can be delicious and catch our attention specially when we go out with some relatives or friends. But the junk food can be harmful for our welfare or health, resulting in a obesity or even affecting our sexual development. So the relation ships are affected too. We need to change eating habits,start exercising frequently and if you have erectil dysfunctions the better alternative could be buy viagra. But the most important thing is take care our health.

I think the obesity is very danger for everybody, is like a pump that can explot any time. So is necesary to take care exercising and taking good and healthy food and stop eating junk food for ever!!!!. The life is too short, so we need to take care of us every single day for enjoy the things that the life gave to us. I bought my house through costa rica homes for sale and i enjoy it every day.
