Family movie night just got tastier with Mars Ice Cream {GIVEAWAY}

2014 July 31
by Emily Hill

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post in partnership with One2One Network and Mars Ice Cream. All thoughts, opinions and love of SNICKERS Brand Chocolate Ice Cream Bars are 100 percent honest and all mine.

I knew we’d be a movie-going family. Nathan is an audio-visual guru and a lover of all things big screen. We’ve had a home theater in each of the three homes we’ve owned and watched more (much more) than our fair share of flicks. Our kids are movie lovers as well and we enjoy nothing more than family movie night in our basement especially during the heat of summer.


Family movie night with Mars Ice Cream

Food and drink are rarely allowed in the theater because that post-popcorn cleanup is a nightmare. But I made an exception after we stocked up on Mars Ice Cream treats. I mean, how could I not when you’re talking frozen novelties that pair delicious, REAL ice cream with the scrumptious chocolate flavor of some of my favorite candy brands?

Livi was a huge fan of the idea. And I threw in a large Diet Coke (see photo) for good measure.


Family movie night with Mars Ice Cream

Mars Ice Cream products include DOVEBAR® Ice Cream Bars, M&M’S® Brand Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich (we only found the cones), SNICKERS® Brand Chocolate Ice Cream Bars (my favorite!) and TWIX® Ice Cream Bars.


We couldn’t find the DOVEBAR Ice Cream Bars or you better believe those would be in the movie night mix.

The only thing we didn’t love about the Mars Ice Cream products was choosing which one to enjoy during the flick. Because the decision was so difficult, I let everyone have seconds.

I am so Mom of the Year.

The entire family agreed Mars Ice Cream products made for the perfect at-home movie night treat. No greasy popcorn kernels in your lap (or between couch cushions), and no sticky fingers because you pretty much inhale that delicious ice cream. I highly recommend picking up your favorite flick and a box or two of Mars Ice Cream ASAP so you too can enjoy a tasty movie night with your family.

Of course, when it comes to choosing—and inhaling—the perfect summer treat inside our outside your home theater, you have only one “real” choice: real ice cream.

For me that means SNICKERS Brand Chocolate Ice Cream Bars. Every time.

Speaking of treats, here’s an extra one—a few outtakes from our movie night photo shoot. Do you think I can blackmail Madison with that one on the left?
