Mike and Ike Zours® Candies for the best movie snacks ever! #ZoursFace #Cbias #Shop

I have waited my entire life to hear my son come home and tell me he wanted to watch Star Wars. Not the cartoon Star Wars, but the real one – you know, episode 4 where Darth Vader kills Obi-Wan as JP explained to me.

With a surprised look on my face, he continued on explaining me the Star Wars saga as if he’d been a die hard fan for years. He finished with “I wanna see the movie, mommy.. Can we please watch it?”

Without hesitation, I went straight to iTunes to see if it was for purchase but came up with no luck. I moved on to Netflix, then Hulu and even our Verizon on Demand and still couldn’t find it. Bummed out, I realized the only way it could happen was if I bought the box set – George Lucas sure is proud of his movies!

So in preparation for our movie event, we got some yummy snacks to munch on just like at the movie theater.. We popped some popcorn and broke out the best movie snacks ever. The best part was when I went to walmart to get the goodies, the popcorn was 1$ and the Mike and Ike Zours® were less than a dollar! #CollectiveBias

I laid out a blanket on our living room floor and filled a 2-sided container with both popcorn and the new Mike and Ike Zours® candies. JP loves getting his chance to eat sour candies – it’s not often he gets to indulge. I wanted to make sure his Star Wars movie experience was as memorable as possible.

While I was preparing the popcorn, he couldn’t resist and kept asking to try one… I handed him a few to see what kind of #ZoursFace he would make.

“Are we going to watch the movie yet??”

…Long pause…

“Mommee! are we going to watch it yet?

“Please…?”

This boy could not contain his excitement, but I didn’t want to burn the popcorn I was making because there’s nothing more disgusting than burned microwaved popcorn. Finally we were ready to sit on our blanket that I spread out on the living room floor. I made him a kid-sized container with both popcorn and Mike and Ike Zours®.

Then the movie began and he watched the entire thing! I had my doubts that he would actually sit still and watch the movie, especially after being all jacked up on sugar but I was pleasantly surprised by him! He watched the entire thing while we both ate the best movie snacks ever!
