There is nothing better than snuggling up on the sofa with some snacks (or a meal) after a long day. The only thing that gets in the way of this zenful moment is trying to decide what to watch while you munch. So, we’ve put together a list of movies and paired them with our meal kits and snack boxes, so all you need to decide is when your next movie night will be!
Labyrinth & The No Wine but Cheese Box
If you want to take a break from reality for an hour then this is the movie for you. This cult classic fairy tale is now on Netflix so you can check out of the real world and step into the creepy, but somehow loveable, world of Labyrinth. David Bowie plays the starring role and is accompanied by singing puppets. Sounds weird, and trust us it is, but you’ll find yourself swept up in the madness and forgetting your daily grind within minutes. This movie pairs perfectly with our No Wine But Cheese Box, as you’re sure to have some wild dreams after watching this movie anyways.
Marriage Story & the Great & Guilty Box
Get the tissue box ready, because you’re going to need it with our next pick. Marriage Story is a pure tearjerker drama starring Scarlett Johansson and Adan Driver as the unhappily wed couple. With award-winning acting from both leads and a very raw human storyline, this movie has racked up an impressive list of accolades and media attention. You’re going to want to have a bunch of snacks around you, while you watch this film, so you can grab a snack every time you need to grab a tissue. We recommend our Great & Guilty box, full of treats like chili cheese nuggets, mozzarella sticks, fries, and onion rings. That way you can grab a different treat each time!
Tiger King & The Patty Box
Okay so not a movie, but you can make it one if you watch this all in one go like we did. If you are one of the few people left in Dubai who hasn’t watched Tiger King series yet, get ready for a treat. Every episode will leave you with your jaw on the floor as you let Netflix take you to the next episode without hesitation. You’re going to want to go full-out American with this one, so grab our Patty Box and cook up some cheeseburgers and fries so you can get into the all-American mood while you watch.
The Irishman & Steak Around box
If you want to really do a marathon movie night then The Irishman is for you. At 3 hours and 30 minutes long, you’re going to want to have more than a snack while watching this epic Martin Scorsese masterpiece. That’s why we suggest you tuck into our Steak Around box, packed with the best meat cuts for you to make a hearty steak meal to eat while you work your way through this tale of two gangsters’ lives.
Chick Flicks & Movie Night Box
If you’re looking for a feel-good chick flick kinda night then To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before or Someone Great (yes, the one with the Lizzo song in it) are for you. Grab our Movie Night box which includes a nacho kit, popcorn, a big tub of ice cream, and a bag of Hershey’s chocolate and you’ll be perfectly set up to soak in the fuzzy warmth of these rom-coms.
Of course, any of our meal kits of pre-prepared box selections are great for any movie, we just think these go particularly well together. Let us know what you’ve been watching and what food you think is best paired with it!
