Large Servings Of Food Movie Goers Snuck Into Theatres: Twitter Thread

Back in the not-so-distant-past when movie theatres were open, there was nothing better than going to your local cinema with your gal pals on a Saturday night, armed with snacks to watch the latest rom-com. A big bucket of sweet and salty popcorn and two hours of Matthew McConaughey? Yes, please! But one thing that never failed to enhance our cinematic experience was the thrill of sneaking real food into the movie theatre and getting away with it. Whether it was a slice of pizza in our purse or a burrito up our sleeve, everything tasted better when we knew we'd snuck it past security. Twitter user @LocalSoundwave asked people to share the foods they've snuck into movie theatres, and the responses reveal just how daring people are. Oh, the guilty thrills of doing something wrong!

Vintage Beauty Pageant Queens Of The Food Industry

I think it's safe to say that the concept of beauty pageants is somewhat outdated, at least in their original format of judging and ranking contestants' physical attributes only. But nestled among the beauty pageants of old are the lesser-known vintage food-themed contests, which saw women's beauty celebrated alongside various produce. From Miss Idaho Potato, 1935 to Donut Queen, 1951, here is the only beauty pageant I will endorse. Mixing food with fashion is something I will always support, and celebrating food, in general, is a worthy endeavor. So scroll through these bizarre pictures of the food industry's beauty queens and be as baffled but amazed as I am at their splendor.

Pictures Of Food Which Will Make Your Inner Chef Squirm

I love all things food. I love eating (Italian mainly - specifical pasta), but I also love cooking. I put a lot of love and energy into my food prep, so it honestly makes me die a little inside when I see images like these. And if you're somewhat of a chef or foodie, then these awful food fail pics will probably have the same effect on you. Instagram account @totallygourmet is full of pictures that, according to their homepage is "Totally crème de la crème", but in my opinion, they're more "Totally crime de la crème".

Japanese Mom Creates Works Of Art In Food For Her Kids

Some kids will eat anything and everything. And by some, I mean basically none. Any parent will attest to the fact that kids can be a nightmare when it comes to eating; most are incredibly picky and limit themselves to one or two things — usually chicken nuggets and chips, and nothing with any nutritional value. Mealtimes become a battle, usually ending up with kids going on hunger strikes and parents inevitably giving in and admitting defeat. One Japenese mom decided to combat this issue by turning her picky daughter's food into animated works of art to get her to eat healthily. Whether it's eggs in the shape of Winnie the Pooh or sushi snowmen, we're sure her daughter scoffs her mother's food down pretty quickly. Check out her incredible talent below.

Fine Dining Restaurants Who Took Creativity Too Far

Food is meant to be enjoyed, whether it's expensive Michelin-star standard or fast-food from McDonald's. Of course, the more expensive the food, the higher the cooking quality, standard, and presentation but sometimes fine dining restaurants take it a little too far. These pictures show what some Michelin star restaurants are doing when it comes to serving their food, and they prove that imagination doesn't have limitations. They say presentation is everything, but I'm not sure how appetizing some of these dishes look, even if they are ridiculously expensive. What do you think?
