Smuggle snacks into Avengers Endgame

A time-honored tradition amongst folks who love going to the movies is sneaking in your own stash of candy. Whether you don't like the candy that the movie theater wants to sell you, or you just don't have money in the budget for the exorbitant price of a small box of milk duds, there are a variety of ways to get it done.

With Avengers: Endgame right around the corner these tips can help make sure you have enough snacks for everything Marvel is about to throw at you.

Avengers: Endgame - Everything you need to know

Bring a bag

The most obvious way to smuggle your favorite snacks into the movies is a tried and true method: use a bag. This is probably easiest if you carry a purse on the regular. In order to take the best advantage of this method, you'll want to keep a few things in mind.

Many theaters have wised up to folks smuggling in their favorite treats using a bag. This means that very large or bulky bags are going to raise suspicion and might get checked by employees (for reasons beyond candy). You can hide candy in pockets that aren't obvious, or build a false bottom. Of course, layering candy at the bottom with everything else in the bag on top of it can also solve this problem.

In general, make sure you check your theater to see what their policies are regarding bags. A lot of them won't let you bring any large bags in, even if you're treat-free. Smaller bags might also get checked depending on their size. This is the easiest method, but it's also the riskiest.

Diaper Bags and Strollers

For parents who are planning on bringing their kids to the movie, you can use the items you're already bringing with you to make sure your snacks make it inside. It's rare that theater employees are going to demand you let them search through a diaper bag, and it's easy to sneak snacks into the bottom of a stroller and put items on top of it.

Now, if you recently had a baby and still have a carrier, but don't want to bring the kids you can still take advantage of this method. Put a "trick" baby in the carrier, and pack your candy around and under it. Voila! Easy candy carrying receptacle.

Baggy Clothing

If you don't want to bring anything extra with you into the theater, but you still want your favorite candy, then the next best option is using your clothing to best advantage. So long as you snag your ticket and then roll directly to the theater then it's pretty easy to sneak in candy using your clothing.

Acting casual is key when smuggling candy into the movies.

You've got a few different options with this method, all of which can work provided you act casual. A long-sleeved shirt or zip-up hood can easily hide chocolate or small bags of candy in the sleeves. If you opt for a pullover hoodie, the pouch can also easily hold a decent amount of snacks. If you've got some super baggy JNCO jeans hiding in the back of your closet that's also an option (although way less conspicuous than others). The best option for going incognito though is a jacket that has an interior pocket that you can fill!

The Pregnancy Gag

If you really want to sneak in a ton of candy, there is a gag that might work. It'll require some boldness, as well as a woman who is willing to fib and make everyone think she's rocking a baby bump. Yes, you can bundle candy and snacks into a bundle and then put it under your shirt.

So long as you ensure that the bump is smooth, and doesn't move you might be able to get away with this gag. Of course, it does require pretending to be pregnant which is sort of iffy. If you're already pregnant but not showing much, this is also an easy way to use that bun in the oven to make sure you have plenty of snacks though!

Are you sneaking in candy?

Smuggling candy into a movie theater isn't necessarily difficult, provided you know what you're doing.
