Movie nights are a great quarantine activity! They let you escape your home for a bit and travel into another universe. Movie nights are a great way to go on a wild adventure without leaving the safety of your home. If you’re planning on having a movie night soon, there are two important things to think about. Number one: the movie itself (obvi.) And number two: the snacks! No movie night is complete without a spread of sweet and savory snacks to munch on when things get intense. Check out these vegan movie snacks coming soon to a coffee table near you!

You can fill the cups with any kind of hummus, so you can customize your flavor profile to your liking.

13. Chili Coated Plantain Crisps With Lime Ketchup
These Chili Coated Plantain Crisps With Lime Ketchup by Renee Press are great for parties, or an afternoon snack and are perfect for when you have a potato chip craving. They are best warm, but if you slice them about half as thick as these, and bake them until they’re extra crispy, you’ll have something very close to a potato chip that will keep and travel well. You can find plantains at most grocery stores now, but they’ll be much more affordable at an Asian or Latino market. Look for ones that are still green; they should be firm without too many brown spots.
