Our favorite snack, Entenmann’s Little Bites muffins, is partnering with the movie BUMBLEBEE to celebrate the film’s release on digital, Blu-ray, and DVD,and the #FabFam thought it was a great reason to put together a fun home family movie night. We love curling up on the couch with our favorite snacks, so home movie nights are one of our favorite things to do as a family. But like anything we do, we like to kick it up a notch and make it a bit of a party. Today I’m sharing some easy and wallet-friendly ideas to have a little movie watching party with your kids.
As always, the star of the show for us are yummy Little Bites® muffins! Made with real ingredients like blueberries, bananas, and strawberries, these delicious soft-baked muffins are available in 10 different flavors (including fun limited-time flavors like these Churro muffins!) and can be found at stores nationwide. Little Bites muffins are the ultimate kid-favorite, mom-approved snack with their delicious flavors and NO trans fat or high fructose corn syrup!
We didn’t have a chance to see BUMBLEBEE in theatres, so we were pumped that it just came out on digital. Both my husband and I have loved Transformers since we were kids, and we love that our boys get to grow up with it, too. And of course, the friendly yellow Bumblebee is everyone’s favorite! In this movie, Bumblebee finds himself on the run in the year 1987 and takes refuge in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. Charlie (Hailee Steinfeld), on the cusp of turning 18 and trying to find her place in the world, discovers Bumblebee, battle-scarred and broken. When Charlie revives him, she quickly learns this is no ordinary, yellow VW bug!

While we love that our Little Bites muffins come in convenient, perfectly portioned pouches (with most varieties 200 calories or less per pouch!) when we are on the go, they make great treats for chilling at home, too.
For our home movie nights, we like to serve Little Bites muffins in bowls alongside our favorite flavors of popcorn for a fun movie snack buffet.
We found some reusable plastic popcorn boxes at our local dollar store, and love bringing them out for some homemade popcorn. Since we are watching BUMBLEBEE, we chose yellow napkins and accessories to tie it all together.
We love making fresh-popped popcorn for movie nights since it is not only cost-effective to buy bags of un-popped popcorn, but it also allows you to customize your flavor! We do a choose-your-own-flavoring popcorn bar. Our favorite dry seasonings to include are ranch, Italian, and Cajun, and the best part is that you probably have most of these components in your pantry already! Here are the ingredients and easy recipes.
Ranch Popcorn: popcorn, butter-flavored popcorn oil, ranch dressing seasoning (from a packet), parsley flakes, parmesan cheese
Italian Popcorn: popcorn, butter-flavored popcorn oil, basil, oregano, rosemary, thyme, garlic salt, parsley flakes, parmesan cheese
Cajun Popcorn: popcorn, butter-flavored popcorn oil, Cajun seasoning
And of course, it wouldn’t be a movie night without some Little Bites muffins! Since each of us has our own favorite flavor of Little Bites muffins, we had all our favorites on hand to choose from.
