Since they pop the theater popcorn with a flavoring oil that contains artificial colors and preservatives, you can't get dye-free popcorn, even if you skip the "butter." So I packed the girls some "Frozen" EasyLunchboxes!
The movie was a big hit! Both girls loved it, and noticed that just like them, the older sister in the movie was blond, and the younger one was a reddish brunette.

Snacks for "Elsa"
|Salted organic popcorn, rock candy stick, GF WowButter-jelly sandwich, GF "MOMeos," organic apples|
The sandwich shape doesn't fit the theme I was going for, but Z saw the little Totoro cutter and wanted it over a snowflake cutter. And it's hard, but I remind myself that this is for her, after all. Not me. So a Totoro it is! I hadn't even planned on making sandwiches for their snacks until she requested one!
I'd been sitting on these dye-free ("plain") rock candy sticks for just such an occasion - a stick full of "frost crystals" for a Frozen movie snack? How perfect is that? I had enough extras I brought some for my niece and nephews too!
Snacks for "Anna"
|Organic apples, GF "MOMeos," salted organic popcorn, rock candy stick, GF Wowbutter-jelly sandwich bites|
Both girls got a few of my precious stash of whole-grain gluten-dairy-egg-free "Oreos" from a MOMables recipe I did. Because they prefer them over the store-bought kind. Jerks.
*Please note that I don't pack my own snacks to save money by "thwarting the system." I bring what we need for our dietary restrictions. I still buy their over-priced bottled water, and sometimes Sprite or 7-Up, which, while filled with bad sugars, don't have any fake flavors or dyes.
