The inside scoop on food in Los Angeles

Yea or Nay: Do you want to know what's in your movie theater popcorn?

Or perhaps the better question is, do you deserve to know what is in your movie theater popcorn? Well, movie theater operators are basically saying it's none of your business.

What do you think?

Personally, I don't want to know what is in movie theater popcorn. I love it. And I have convinced myself that the "butter" topping magically makes it all calorie free....and actually helps me lose weight while I watch my movie.

While 76+percent say they would like to know whats in MT popcorn, I believe less than 20% of those would actually inquire. It's mostly because they've waited in the line so long behind the lady with four kids and only two arms that they no longer care and don't want to miss the previews. Or, fearful of concession line rage from another movie goer behind them. So order the popcorn, get out of the way so the next person can buy a bucket of cholesterol fatty goodness!
