Best Picture & Candy Pairings: And The Nominees Are…

best picture & candy pairings

Calling all movie buffs! We're racing to watch the Best Picture nominees before the big night on March 4th, and if you're anything like us, candy during a binge-watching session is kind of nonnegotiable. To prepare for nights at the theater or on the couch, here are our expert movie & candy pairings:

Get Out…Loopy Fruit Sours
Get Out…Loopy Fruit Sours

This horror satire is packed with iconic moments, but none as unsettling as Allison Williams’ character eating dry Froot Loops and sipping a glass of milk while listening to (I’ve Had) The Time Of My Life. Our Loopy Fruit Sours are perfectly on theme, plus, the appeal of watching a scary movie and eating sour candy is pretty much the same – it’s suffering you enjoy!

Dunkirk...Signature Popcorn
Dunkirk...Signature Popcorn

Dunkirk, a classic war film with young soldiers and back-to-back action scenes to put you on edge. Luckily, munching on one of our gourmet Signature Popcorns (Cookies 'n Cream please!) will help to distract or console you during the tensest moments.

Dunkirk...Signature Popcorn
Lady Bird...Nostalgia Mason Jar
Lady Bird...Nostalgia Mason Jar

It's pretty much impossible to find anyone who didn't fall in love with Lady Bird, a sweet coming-of-age story that'll make you reminisce on your own adolescence. Our Nostalgia Mason Jar filled with candy classics will only add to the wistfulness you'll feel as Dave Matthews Band kicks in...

The Shape of Water...Under The Sea Gummy Pouch
The Shape of Water...Under The Sea Gummy Pouch

This movie is all about creatures of the sea (well, really just one in particular), so our Under The Sea Gummy Pouch is a no-brainer! Split the bag with your significant other and be thankful he or she isn't a captured humanoid-amphibian.

Call Me By Your Name...Sour Peaches
Call Me By Your Name...Sour Peaches

Well...you'll see for yourself.

Darkest Hour...Choc-a-Lot Artisan Truffles
Darkest Hour...Choc-a-Lot Artisan Truffles

This historical drama is full of British accents and tense decisions. We don't know about you, but chocolate is often the cure for our stress, so we'd like to direct you to our Choc-a-Lot Artisan Truffles; they're a bit more sophisticated and classy than your average chocolate, making them the most posh companion for this movie.

Phantom Thread...Mega Candy Necklace
Phantom Thread...Mega Candy Necklace

No outfit is complete without jewelry! Before you settle in to watch this movie about a famous dressmaker in London, you'll need candy with some serious style. Our Mega Candy Necklace is nearly three feet of sugar, meaning it'll last through the duration of the movie and then some.

The Post...Gobstoppers
The Post...Gobstoppers

In this movie with plenty of thrills and rapid-fire drama, here's a treat with equally as many layers. Gobstoppers are a total sensory experience since each layer is also a new fruity flavor - as the movie unfolds, so will your candy.

The Post...Gobstoppers
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri...Hot Tamales or Malt Ball Madness
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri...Hot Tamales or Malt Ball Madness

To put it simply, there's a lot of fire in this movie, which makes Hot Tamales a natural choice while watching. But if you're not a hot and spicy candy fan (we admit, there are few of us), the many shifts between comedy and tragedy make the Malt Ball Madness Good-To-Go Pouch an excellent choice.
