Before I write any further, I have something I must confess. I am a rule breaker. Lucky for me, breaking rules seems to work in my favor. Recently, some friends and I went to see a movie. While everyone else was lined up waiting to purchase their popcorn, ice cream, and other snacks, I was struck by the urge to break a movie theater rule. While there are a lot of movie snacks that are gluten-free, I just wasn’t feeling what the movie theater had to offer. Plus, while I love theater popcorn, I always worry about what cross-contamination may have occurred. The theater I was visiting is located in a mall with a grocery store located in the complex, so a plan was hatched.
One of my friends decided he too needed to break the no outside food in the movie theater rule, and we headed to the grocery store. I really didn’t know what I was looking for as I scanned the aisles. Alas, something caught my eye. I have spent many hours perusing the gluten-free aisle, and while I have seen Glutino products many times before, I had never spotted the Fudge Covered Pretzels. I have always loved chocolate covered pretzels, and have failed (multiple times) while attempting to make my own gluten-free version. I decided to give the Glution version a try. I checked out and stuffed the bag into my oversized purse, so I could be super stealth and sneak them into the theater.
Before opening the bag, I had decided I would only eat a few. I failed. The pretzels were so good that I ate the entire bag over the course of the movie (with just a little help from my friends). I have since repurchased the chocolate covered pretzels, and shared them with my family members who eat gluten. Everyone who has tried them agreed, these are great! They’re so good, I’ve taken to hiding them in the cabinet so that they are there when I want them.
