10 Best Movie Night Keto Snacks to Enjoy!
Wondering what keto movie snacks you should munch on?
I don’t know about you, but during the COVID shutdown, I’ve been watching a ton of movies at home. A bright spot of this is that it’s now much easier to avoid non-keto treats like nachos, popcorn, and theater box candies that have always been a temptation in theaters.
I keep keto-friendly treats on hand to snack on while watching my favorite movies. So today I’m sharing my favorite keto movie snacks with you that you can easily buy in your own local stores when you’re planning a last-minute movie night!
Here are our favorite keto movie snacks!
Pork rinds are crispy, crunchy, salty, and everything you need for a yummy savory snack. I find they really hit the spot when I’m craving popcorn. In fact, you can even buy salted butter-flavored pork rinds on Amazon if you really wanna capture that popcorn flavor! My team member, Taylor, loves these so much that she even wrote up an entire product review on them.
With so many brands and flavors available at every grocery and convenience store, this is a no brainer movie night snack! Every time I go to Costco I grab a huge bag of my favorite 4505 Pork Rinds so that I’m always set for a movie marathon.
4505 Classic Pork Rinds
Serving Size 14g | 80 Calories | 6g Fat | 0g Total Carbs | 0g Fiber | 0g Sugar | 7g Protein | 0g Net Carbs
*Please note, we used 4505 as an idea nutrition wise for Pork Rinds, but there are so many brands out there you can try. Just keep an eye on the carb count if they are BBQ flavored as those sometimes will have added sugars.
Where to buy: EVERYWHERE! Grocery stores, Amazon, Costco, Sam’s Club, convenience stores, and even vending machines.
Lily’s Chocolate Bars
If you haven’t heard of Lily’s, your tastebuds are seriously missing out. This decadently delicious chocolate is sweetened with stevia making it a sweet treat that’s actually low in carbs.
I don’t know about you but when I’m watching a movie, I love to alternate between savory and sweet snacks, so I’ll break off a little piece of Lily’s then have some Pork Rinds then nibble on the Lily’s again. Kinda like how I used to always pour Reese’s Pieces into my movie popcorn tub! 😋
Lily’s Milk Chocolate Bar
Serving Size 1/3 Bar | 130 Calories | 10g Fat | 17g Total Carbs | 10g Fiber | 5g Erythritol | 2g Protein | 2g Net Carbs
Where to buy: Target, Kroger, Sprouts, Publix, Safeway, Amazon, and many other retail stores listed here.
Beef Jerky & Meat Sticks
We’re talking straight protein here, people! Cured meats are typically easy to find and will give you all the energy you need plus they are a perfect movie-time snack. Just watch for sweetened flavors like brown sugar or maple (which will add unwanted carbs). Stetson loves People’s Choice beef jerky!
Collin recently told me about her new favorite Tillamook Zero-Sugar Beef Jerky…OMG y’all…this stuff is so dang good! Even better, it’s in almost every grocery store I go into and even in gas stations and convenience stores.

String Cheese / Cheese Sticks/ Babybel Cheese
String cheese is an easy go-to when you’re having a movie night at home. Just get a couple of sticks from the fridge and get your munch on. I like to grab a few pieces of pepperoni and wrap it around the cheese for a yummy movie time snack.
Serving Size 1 Stick | 80 Calories | 6g Fat | 1g Total Carbs | 0g Fiber | <1g Sugar | 6g Protein | 1g Net Carbs

While they’re not exactly popcorn, they sure bring the crunch when you’re watching your favorite movies! I love dipping Cheese Crisps into a delicious Everything But the Bagel Cheese Ball! Not only are they an excellent source of calcium and protein, but these cheese crisps are made solely from one ingredient: 100% Parmesan or Cheddar cheese!
Whisps Parmesan Cheese Crisps
Serving Size: 23 Crisps | 150 Calories | 10g Fat | 1g Total Carbs | 0g Fiber | 0g Sugar | 13g Protein | 1g Net Carbs
Find them at various grocery stores, convenience stores, Target, Costco, Sam’s, Walmart, Amazon, and more!
Another movie snack that gives you that must have crunch is a big juicy pickle! My local theater was selling pickles prior to closing due to COVID, and I would often grab one and skip the popcorn. I love buying the Oh Snap Pickle Packs to have on hand in my fridge. They are prepackaged and are ready for movie time snacking!
Speaking of pickles, have you tried our keto bacon-wrapped pickles yet?!
Oh Snap! Dilly Bites Pickles
Serving Size 1 Pouch | 15 Calories | 0g Fat | 2g Total Carbs | 0g Fiber | 0g Sugar | 0g Protein | 2g Net Carbs
*Please note, we used Oh Snap! Dilly Bites as an example, but there are so many brands of pickles out there you can try. Pickles are a great low carb snack!
Where to buy: EVERYWHERE!
Quest Protein Chips
One of the things I missed most when I first started keto was all of my favorite crunchy snacks! I sure do love potato chips (a little too much in fact), and as we all know, anything potato is basically a no-no in the low carb world. These Quest Protein Chips deliver the flavor and are often one of my go-to movie snacks!
I love that there’s a little something for everyone’s flavor cravings with these Quest Protein Chips. Grab the Nacho Cheese flavor and it will make you think you’re chowing down a big batch of nachos at the movies.
Be sure to check out my Quest Protein Chips Taste Test (I rank all 7 flavors best to worst!).

These gluten-free and grain-free cookies are one of my favorite go-to keto snacks and they’re really good to munch on while I’m watching a movie.

Nuts are another movie snack that are packed full of crunch! Look for raw or roasted almonds (avoid flavors like honey or brown sugar), which are nutritious and give you a punch of energy. Walnuts, pecans, and macadamia nuts are also great choices for keeping it keto on movie night.
