AP’s FAVE 3 things to have with popcorn

So it's one of those Netflix and Chill nights.

>> Netflix picks from the WAVE 3 News staff

You've got your popcorn popped, but you need a little something extra to go with it.

Here are my FAVE 3:



Everybody knows popcorn and candy go hand-in-hand. But the options are endless, and everyone has their own go-to fave.

For me, it’s Raisinets.

I like to sprinkle them into the bowl while the popcorn is still hot.

Fizz Freez Thorntons

Icee / Fizz Freez

Any time I go to the movie theater, my fave drink to get is an Icee.

But if you’re watching movies at home, you don’t have to go without. The Fizz Freez at Thorntons is pretty much the same thing, and it comes in many different flavors. I like to layer mine with two or three different flavors.

And the best part – you can get them for less than a dollar for any size.


Ok, I know this one is a little out of the ordinary, but it’s very nostalgic for me.

When I was a young girl, my cousins and I used to spend the summers with our grandparents in Iowa, and we always had popcorn and cheese for a snack before bed. We would take our baths and put on Papa’s beige sheriff t-shirts to sleep in, then gather around the coffee table with our snacks and pop (soda) in colorful plastic cups.

For me, the cheese has to be sliced from the block – colby or cheddar – because that’s how my Grancy did it.
