Movie theaters sometimes can charge up to four times the retail price of candy, popcorn, and sodas. And so, rather than spend five bucks for a small bag of M&Ms, teens are finding creative ways to get their snack fix at the theater. Twitter user Angela Brisk, for example, pretends to be pregnant in order to get her candy fix for cheap.

“Found a new way to get your snacks into a movie,” Angela captioned the tweet, displaying a hollow styrofoam bowl from a craft store and placing it underneath her sweatshirt. The trick makes her look like she is well into her third trimester.

Her clever idea went viral, with over 40,000 likes and nearly 19,000 retweets, with the Twitterverse singing her praises for being so creative and for sharing her idea with others.

One Twitter user suggested that Angela’s idea can also apply to men: “beer belly,” anyone?

Thanks to Angela, many could soon be saving a few dollars on their next visit to the movie theater.
