Not Every Nation Eats Popcorn While Watching Movies. Find Out What They Prefer (12 pics)

Posted in Lifestyle » Food   6 Feb 2017   / 3446 views

Greece

People in Greece like their traditional food souvlaki so much that it can be purchased everywhere, including some outdoor cinemas.

Israel

In Israel, moviegoers enjoy tasty and nutritious balls made from ground chickpeas. This popular snack is commonly served in a pita, which acts as a pocket.

Mexico

Tostilocos are now commonly sold in Mexican movie theatres and at stadiums. This street food traditionally consists of tortilla chips topped with hot sauce, cucumber, jícama, lime juice, beans, and peanuts.

Finland

Movie theatres in Finland offer a wide selection of fruit jelly candies, similar to Gummy Bears, at their concession stands.

China

Many movie fans in China like snacking on dried salted plums (which are also popular in Mexico), sunflower seeds, and dried squid while watching films.

Netherlands

Healthy licorice candies are in great demand in the Netherlands, and they are sold in many movie theatres. Especially popular is salty licorice. However, it has a rather unusual taste which one needs to get used to.

South Korea

In South Korea, moviegoers prefer eating roasted chestnuts during screenings. And as in many other Asian countries, dried squid is very popular here.

Colombia

Roasted ants, also known as hormiga culona, are probably not the most appetizing alternative to popcorn. However, munching on this unusual snack while watching a movie in Colombia is a common thing. The ants have a unique taste that some people compare to that of bacon.

India

In Indian movie theatres you can find not only Bollywood masterpieces but also traditional street food. For example, don’t miss the chance to try samosas (pyramid-shaped turnovers with various fillings) and vada pav (potato-fritter sandwiches).

Taiwan

The dish called "chicken popcorn" is very popular in Taiwan. Commonly sold by restaurants, street vendors, and theatres, this snack is said to be so delicious you can’t stop eating it.

Japan

It’s hard to imagine life in Japan without seafood. So it’s no surprise that all Japanese movie theatres offer their visitors Iriko, a snack made from dried sardines or anchovies.

Barbados

Fish balls (Bajan fish cakes) are a hit in Barbados and other Caribbean countries. Made from salted fish, flour, baking powder, and herbs, this popular snack can be purchased in open-air movie theatres.

#2 is indeed Falafel.

Also, in China those are dried sour (not salted) plums. People have them too for car sickness.
