Yea...I only go to...maybe two or three movies in an entire year... whenever I want to see one I wait for it to come out on DVD. Fortunately, I don't have those pangs of guilt, being that I'm in a city that has many, many movie theatres that are doing fine...NYC sure isn't small :lol:

I finally got around to calling Mars. They confirmed for me that ALL sizes of Snickers are made from the same ingredients and ALL sizes ALL gluten-free. The Pop'ables are a completely different product and are NOT gluten-free.

Of course, they are not made on a dedicated line, but they thouroughly clean the lines, etc., etc.

I absolutely refuse to go to the movies more than 3 times a year.

Our theaters charge between %8.25 and $9 a ticket and that is ludicrous.

I wait for rental unless I can't stand it!

Plus I always end up next to some sick coughing person, cell phones ring, disgusting chewing and slurping noises everywhere....no thanks.

I'll take my lazyboy rocker, surround sound and big screen anyday. Plus I can make my own snacks and pause when I need the potty.

I don't care if theaters need to charge that much for food; it's highway robbery. Why would I pay $4 for a small Junior mint when I can get it at Target for half a dollar? That just isn't smart for people who are watching their wallets!

We found this old theater that only charges $3.50 for all movies. Its in a little town called Tomball. They get all the new movies when they come out but before they'd get them a day after all new movies started. It's not the most confortable seats or stadium seating but its works for us. They also discount the candies and stuff they sell.

I read an article the other day about the slump in ticket sales. The reasons are obvious; movies are quickly released to DVD/Video, high prices, and bad movies!

I almost always bring in my own food and soda. I do not hide it and have never been stopped. If there is not a sign, and I have never seen one, I do not see the problem.

Back to the topic, MANY candies do not contain identical ingredients for each size. Hersheys is a good example, so please check the labels!!!
