Top 5 Foods to Sneak Into a Movie Theater

With the Oscars less than a month away, you might want to start catching up on your movie watching; and there's no better place than the theater to get the full cinematic experience.

Unfortunately, the food selection at most movie theaters (especially if you're catching up on the second-run films) can be somewhat less-than-optimal. While incredibly overpriced popcorn and boxed candy works just fine for some, chances are that anyone on a budget or a healthy diet has to take matters into her own hands.

Sneaking food into the movie theater is as American as apple pie (or going to the "cinema" for that matter). Not sure where to begin? Try some of these delicious food options that slip easily into a purse, pocket or "murse" (man purse).
