Top 10 Snack Moments in Movie History (Plus, the Best Pipcorn Snack to Eat While You Stream Them)

Pipcorn | March 25

There are some movie scenes that everyone knows by heart, even if they’ve never actually watched the film. But have you ever thought about how many of those iconic scenes have to do with eating, especially snacking? Here are our top 10 snacking scenes from classic films that definitely deserve a re-watch—or a first viewing!

1. E.T. and the Reese’s Pieces

In perhaps the most memorable product placement of all time, 10-year-old Elliot scatters a trail of Reese’s Pieces candy, leading hungry E.T. right to his backyard. If you haven’t seen this movie since you were a kid, it’s definitely time to revisit it.

While you watch, snack on: 
Sea Salt Heirloom Popcorn. It’s similarly small for leaving a trail between the kitchen and the sofa.

2. Jurassic Park and the green Jello

When the Jello starts wiggling uncontrollably, it’s time to put down your spoon and RUN. The dinosaurs are coming! 

While you watch, snack on: 
Lime Zest Heirloom Corn Dippers. Also inspired by something green, these chips are made with ingredients that are far less scary.

3. Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and the Everlasting Gobstopper

The Everlasting Gobstopper is Willy Wonka’s top-secret colorful candy that you can suck forever without it ever getting smaller. In a memorable scene, a mysterious machine shrouded by colorful fabric rattles and beeps before producing the truly magical jawbreakers.

While you watch, snack on: 
Cheddar Heirloom Cheese Balls. They don’t last forever, but 114 balls per serving sure feels endless.

4. Elf and the maple syrup on spaghetti

Who can forget Buddy the Elf’s substitution of maple syrup for pasta sauce? That’s what we call innovation.

While you watch, snack on:
Vegan Caramel Heirloom Popcorn. It’s the only other Buddy the Elf-approved spaghetti topping.

5. Harry Potter and Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans

Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans are the most popular candy among Hogwarts students. They’re like jelly beans, but in addition to fruity flavors, they also come in really gross flavors like tripe, earwax and vomit. The catch: all the flavors are mixed together, so taking a bite is always a gamble.

While you watch, snack on:
Every flavor of Pipcorn Heirloom Popcorn, mixed together. Every bite is a surprise, but, unlike Bertie Bott’s, none of them are bad surprises.

6. The Parent Trap (1998) and Oreos with peanut butter

Trivia time: What’s the first thing Hallie and Annie bond over after they have an all out prank war at summer camp and get sent to the isolation cabin to work it out? Their mutual love for Oreos with peanut butter! Only identical twins could both be obsessed with that snack combo.

While you watch, snack on: 
Sea Salt Heirloom Corn Dippers, dipped in chocolate fondue. Salty, sweet and unexpectedly perfect.

7. Saturday Night Fever and the pizza slices

Nobody can eat pizza—double stacked!—while looking as effortlessly cool as John Travolta does in the opening scene of Saturday Night Fever. How does he pull it off without smearing sauce on his face?!?

While you watch, snack on:
Every flavor of Heirloom Corn Dippers, stacked together. We dare you to bite the stack without making a mess.

8. Lethal Weapon 3 and the dog biscuits

Yes, dog biscuits. Mel Gibson, as Riggs, certainly makes an impression when he befriends an intimidating rottweiler by sharing dog biscuits with him. And by sharing, we mean munching a few himself to show the pooch they’re equals.

While you watch, snack on:
Truffle Heirloom Corn Dippers. Just as crunchy as dog biscuits, but a thousand times more appetizing.

9. The Goonies and the Baby Ruth

Remember when Sloth is so hangry he breaks free from the chains in order to reach the Baby Ruth that Chunk tried to throw to him? May you never be that hangry.

While you watch, snack on: 
Kettle Heirloom Popcorn. Satisfy your sweet tooth, stay calm and snack on.

10. Forrest Gump and the box of chocolates

Forrest Gump’s mom always told him, “Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.” Mom really does know best!

While you watch, snack on:
Every flavor of Pipcorn Cheese Balls, mixed together. You never know what you’re gonna get!
