Being a #boymom I am certainly becoming more and more educated about Superheroes by Jude. Honestly, I was never a person who really knew much about Superheros and comics but parenthood changes everything.  So here I am a mom finally learning all about the favorite Superheros and kinda liking it but also loving the idea of a date night with my hubby in front of our TV.  What does that mean for us?  It means that on September 9th we have a date night with Captain America!  Once the kids are in bed we plan on getting crazy, and by crazy I mean sitting on the couch and enjoying a yummy Captain America movie snack and watching Captain America 2: The Winter Solider.  

Sometimes as a parent you have to think about dates and those dates cannot be unplanned, they are totally planned.  While this takes away from the impromptu evenings out it does allow for some fun planning on my part.  I decided that while we enjoy the newly released movie we will obviously need a snack that represents Captain America.

How do you plan on enjoying the new Captain America 2: The Winter Solider DVD? I suggest heading on over to your local Walmart and buying some M&M's® and creating something amazing with them.  They are the best movie snacks to enjoy all by themselves or you could get creative in the kitchen and try some M&M® recipes!  Pull those red and blue ones out of the bag and bring the fun of Captain America to your TV experience!


I never thought of Superheros eating M&M's® but it totally makes sense.  Who doesn't love M&M's® and maybe these bite size chocolate candies are what gives them their extra super human powers?  Hey, you never know!!  If you are a Superhero fan you must head on over to this new social Hub called Heroes Eat M&M's®!  I promise you will be entertained.  Tell me what you think after you visit!
