By  | 

If you thought Korean movie theaters only sold popcorn, you might be very surprised. There are so many kinds of snacks at Korean movie theaters that you would want to watch a movie everyday, just to try all the snacks. The snacks differ depending on the movie theaters. The big Korean movie theater chains are CGV, Lotte Cinema and Megabox. In some movie theaters you can get beer, too! Also in front of some movie ticket offices there might be privately owned snack bars, where you can buy other snacks not offered at the movie theater. Here are some of our favourite snacks you can buy at Korean movie theaters!

1. Churros

It’s your everyday normal churros but some movie theaters have started selling them with different fillings, like cream cheese. It’s popular among people, and not only in movie theatres but in amusement parks, too.

2. Peanut butter grilled squid

This is another favorite among Korean people. It is really yummy because it is chewy, sweet and savory. It costs around $4 and the amount can seem too little for the price, as it’s so good! It might not be a good choice, though, when you’re on a date with your boyfriend or girlfriend, as it might leave some squid taste in the mouth.
