Movie Night & Potato Chip Chocolate-Chip Cookies #MoeSnackrs4UrMoney

We recently hosted a The Three Stooges-Movie Night, complete with our very own "Speedy Service Drive-In". The "Speedy Service Drive-In" was featured in the episode, Get That Snack Shack Off The Track, and I thought it made the perfect addition to our evening.

You may be wondering, how would she know random Three Stooges trivia like that? haha, Well... I am quite familiar with The Three Stooges for one reason - my Dad's name is Larry, which caused him to be the recipient of endless Three Stooges gag gifts over the years. We always had a plethora of The Three Stooges on VHS...

And now my kids can remember us having them on DVD... :)

To fill up our concession stand we headed to Smart & Final for their Snack'rs products. There are 2 reasons that I am sold on the Snack'rs brand, 1) most of the bags are resealable and 2)their outstanding quality that is backed by a guarantee. We had previously tried Snack'rs Pumpkin Seeds and Trail Mixes and thought they were really good - so we wanted to check out what other products they carried.

There were A LOT of items to choose from, but we finally came away with Roasted & Salted Pumpkin Seeds, Yogurt Covered Pretzels, Banana Chips, Waffle Pretzels, Pine Nuts, Wavy Potato Chips and Honey Roasted Peanuts (not pictured below).


How about those Potato Chip Chocolate-Chip Cookies? Let me share...

These cookies are the perfect dessert for someone who likes the combination of sweet and salty!

Smart & Final is currently running a promotion with their Snack'rs products; if you purchase two participating Snack'rs items you will be given a code on your receipt that can be redeemed for a FREE movie ticket!

Here are all the Snack'rs products from our local Smart & Final - there is still so much to try!

Our movie night was a hit - filled with laughter and good snacks. It was also fun introducing our kiddos to The Three Stooges movies, our toddler thought they were so silly.

Tip: If serving nuts for a group, small cupcake liners make the perfect small dishes for easy serving.

And last, but certainly not least... Little Brother got to try his first Red Vine (also found at Smart & Final), he loved it!! I can't wait for our next movie night. :)

Salty & sweet is the BEST! I haven't tried potato chip cookies before, but we are addicted to chocolate covered potato chips. Sounds horrible, but soooooo good!

I think my eyes bugged out of my head a little when I read "potato chip/chocolate chip" together when talking about cookies!!! I am definitely a salty/sweet person. This treat sounds perfect!
