WE KNOW HOW you feel. It’s Monday, you have the whole week ahead and you have a lot on your plate.

So do like we do here in TheJournal.ie HQ and get stuck into a serious debate on one of life’s most pressing issues.


This week: Cinemas are as much about the snacks as seeing Ryan Gosling rocking a face tattoo, right? One thing it’s more difficult to agree on is what to eat – and how.

One divisive cinema-munchies habit is the practice of *some* people of tipping their Maltesers INTO their bucket of popcorn.

Can this ever be okay?

D - Shhhhhhhhhhhhh! (629)
