Chicken Little – Popcorn, Orange Soda

Quick links: Popcorn | Orange Soda | Verdict

 

Chicken Little is the first fully computer animated film from Disney. It is a pretty fun film, but not great in Disney standards. It is definitely good for a few laughs though. We’ve been in kind of a slump lately. There hasn’t been much good food shown in movies. Chicken Little showed some food, but it was food we’ve already made or common food items. But we have a couple quick and easy recipes for you. Popcorn and orange soda. Perfect for your Chicken Little viewing night.

I also wanted to do a shout out to our friends at Dreams To Become. We had the awesome opportunity to join their blog to do a viewing of Winnie the Pooh. We made our shortbread jam cookies and recorded an awesome commentary to the movie. Check it out! and be sure to support their patreon in order to hear the commentary.

I made some popcorn, but not just plain microwave popcorn. I actually made it over the stove! It actually tastes really good. Better than movie theater popcorn.

Orange Soda Jet Pack

Chicken Little uses an orange soda jet pack a few times in the movie. It is his preferred mode of transportation.

Will it Save you From an Alien Attack?

So even though the food wasn’t amazing. It is good for a snack and movie night. I’m definitely going to be making stove popcorn more often.

Verdict:

Popcorn – 8.5/10

Orange Soda – 8/10
