AMC Dine-in Menu — hear the sound of your blood pressure spiking???

Sunday is movie day in our house. We normally go to the first show of the day to get cheaper tickets because why pay more to see the same movie a few hours later? Movie theaters today are adding all sorts of new perks to get people to leave their houses. One of the new perks is expanded food options.

AMC is a large theater chain and I saw recently that it has what it’s calling the AMC dine-in menu now. The cardboard menu they give you to pick from actually has calorie counts right on it for every dish, a requirement that comes from the healthcare law commonly called Obamacare.

Just looking at those calorie counts made it pretty sure I couldn’t eat anything on this menu. And when I did some online research to find the salt content of these movie foods, I knew for sure I will never buy any food at an AMC. Restaurant food in general is always high in sodium, but these are off the sodium charts. I could feel my blood pressure spiking just reading some fo them.

Some examples:

  • Crab and avocado sushi roll  — 4,760 mgs of sodium (that’s roughly twice as much salt as recommended daily for a healthy, young person.)
  • Dry rub wings — 6,920 mgs of sodium
  • Wedge lettuce cups — 1,630 mgs of sodium (there’s bacon in the lettuce cups)
  • Pretzel bites — 6,060 mgs of sodium

These sodium numbers are really ridiculous. Unless AMC also is investing in heart clinics, there’s no reason for such unhealthy offerings. Shame on you AMC!!!
