    Have you tried doing a search in the syn values/eating out sections - there are loads of threads in there about cinema snacks

    I would take some chopped fruit in a tuppaware with a 'spork' to eat it with.

    Diet drink/pop - large bottle of water

    A cereal bar (use your HEB choice) i love Kelloggs Fibre plus, or you could take a HIFI bar, or the new mini ones (x2 for a heb) or alpen light bars (x2 for a HEB)

    Carrot sticks/celery and a low syn dip (salsa) although hard to not cover yourself in salsa in the dark cinema - so might be best to not have the dip!

    Or alternatively - eat before you go so you are full and not hungry.

    :eek: It's a cinema, not a restaurant. Watch the film!!

    Sorry, but this is a real bugbear of mine. It's why I never go to the cinema any more - all that crunching and slurping!

    Lol, sorry I'm of those annoying people who eat at the cinema. I think it's because I think of it as a night out!

    The plain popcorn is quite low syn

    Plain popcorn isn't low syn... 28g is about 5syns and that's just about one small handful. The average small is around 300 -400 calories so that's 15-20syns!!!!!

    A Large sweet popcorn apparently clocks in at almost 1800 calories!

    I think that maybe the habit to break is that of thinking that we must be eating something everywhere we go (I have been just as guilty of this and I am not having a dig at anyone in particular). There are snacks to be had everywhere, most of them very large in quantity, not very healthy, and many of them at ridiculous prices (I would love to know what the mark-up is on cinema popcorn and those little tubs of Ben and Jerrys!).The older I get the more I sound like my mother - "if you eat between meals you will spoil your dinner" - but sometimes I think she was right!!

    I always take a little pot of fruit in my bag and if ive not had many syns also a curly wurly :) also used to take made up tupperware pot of jelly :) yum yum. make up a sugar free bottle of squash and you'll be sorted. This cinema thing has been one of my biggest changes - always used to get the biggest popcorn and full fat coke before SW - it's the small changes that make the difference :D
