My husband and I enjoy a good movie, however it is only recently that we have been able to get to the movie theater on our own. It has always been much easier and often more convenient to have a movie-in night. There are some definite advantages like : pausing your movie, better choice of food, snacks, and dessert, and of course it is much more affordable.
Thanks to Mars for sending us an awesome Modern Movie Night gift pack to help us create the perfect family movie night. Our package included all that you need, pizza, candy, popcorn, MARS ice cream, a comfy blanket, and of course some free movies! Movies were compliments of our specially marked MARS ICE CREAMS (TWIX Ice Cream, SNICKERS Ice Cream, M&M’S Ice Cream and Milky Way Ice Cream). These specially marked boxes offer a free movie rental at your local Redbox.
How can you go wrong with a movie night full of all of this?! We used our Pizza Hut gift card to order a specialty box that included a pizza, bread sticks, and cinnamon stixs. Little did MARS know, when they sent us this package, I always watch TV all curled up with a blanket. I was so honored to find a personalized blanket in my gift pack. It was great to be able to pick up some free movies using the codes in our MARS Ice Cream boxes but the best part of it all was definitely the MARS Ice Cream. My favorite was hands down the M&M Ice Cream Cookies. Took about some yummy goodness! A close second was the snickers bars. My husband found out quickly that the ice cream didn’t last too long, little hands and mouths were ready to finish off each box.
No movie night is complete without a bowl of popcorn. I spiced up our popcorn with a little extra goodies when I added our package of M&M’s to our bowl.
With our Redbox movie in hand, dinner ordered, snacks made, and comfy blanket we all gathered around the TV for our Modern Family Movie Night. Definitely more comfortable and less expensive then taking a family of five to a movie theater and the constant bathroom trips when you have a seven year old! I encourage you to double your goodness by purchasing the specially marked MARS Ice Cream products to get a free movie and host your own Modern Family Movie Night. In fact we are giving you the chance to win the same gift pack I received above right here at Shibley Smiles.
