Who needs popcorn? Bread is our new movie snack

A wise man once said, “Let’s get this bread!” and so we did

My friends and I decided on an impromptu movie marathon last night. We weren’t able to prepare anything—not even a list of films to watch or food to order. And I think we can all agree that a movie night without a movie snack is a mortal sin. So yup, we looked for snacks to enjoy at the ready and here’s what we came up with.

Raisin bread

Raisin bread from BreadTalk

I’m a big fan of bread (Kim Tak-gu is shaking). I never ran out of it at home. So I simply brought out a couple of my fave bread from BreadTalk and munched on it while watching “Enola Holmes” on Netflix

I know y’all dislike raisins on your bread. But I’d like to be excused from that narrative, please—especially when it adds an extra kick of flavor to my otherwise plain bread. Fight me.


Ube ensaimada from Red Ribbon

My other friend lives close to a mall, so finding a movie snack wasn’t much of a big deal. After excusing themselves from our video call for about 20 minutes, they returned with a bag of Red Ribbon ube ensaimada. The bread was filled with ube halaya and topped with butter, cheese and sugar.


4-Cheese Whopper from Burger King

Unlike me, my friend doesn’t like stocking up on food. What she did instead was scroll through her FoodPanda app and search for an open store at 9 freaking p.m. 

She ended up ordering a 4-cheese Whopper. It consists of a flame-grilled beef patty, American cheese, Swiss cheese, mozzarella and a special cheese sauce—all sandwiched between sesame buns.

Let’s just say she won’t stop ordering from Burger King anytime soon after last night.
