You invite your crush in. You're gonna watch Netflix or order something on demand, cuz that's what the kids are into nowadays. But you need some snacks, too! And sure, you could just go the the nearest corner shop and buy some pre-made popcorn or a packet of crips and pretend everything's ok. But think about how impressed they'll be if you actually prepare the snacks yourself? After all, as they say, 'the way to someone's heart is through their stomach'.
What are you waiting for, then? Chop chop! Scroll down.
1 Tequila-spiked caramel popcorn
A movie watching session definitely wouldn't be successful without popcorn. But what's better than just good old salted popcorn? A tequila-spiked caramel one. Get in my mouth!

2 Bacon candy
You just can't go wrong with bacon. Especially if it's extra crispy and covered with a thin layer of sweet, sweet honey. Give it a try.

3 Sweet-spiced bread sticks
The legend has it that bread sticks are the best thing since the invention of sliced bread. We couldn't agree more. A bit of spice, and then a bit of sweetness just to confuse your taste buds, and they suddenly become even more delicious. Perfect for munching during a TV series marathon.

4 Super nachos
They're not just any nachos. They're super nachos. With every topping you can imagine and more. Another argument as to why you should stay homeand watch something. You'll never find nachos like these in a movie theatre.

5 Movie theatre bark
For those who love that sweet and salty combination, we present to you a milk chocolate sheet with pretzels, nuts, and raisins (so, a chocolate bark). If you want to be super healthy, you can use dark chocolate, but honestly, what's the fun in that? Don't be a party pooper.

9 Oven-baked mozzarella sticks
Crispy on the outside, gooey on the inside. Throw in some homemade guacamole in there. Or just regular tomato salsa, if you're a boring lad. Ah, yes. That's what dreams are made of.

10 Frozen chocolate-dipped banana
Eating a full banana in front of your crush might be a bit... embarrassing. Chop the bad boys up, cover them in chocolate and let them chill while you two lovebirds chill on the sofa.

11 Soft pretzel bites
Soft, tiny pretzels. That's it. That's the sell. Just close your eyes and image it with a side of a cheese dip. Heaven.
