No it isn’t St. Patrick’s Day already.

It’s the release of the Muppets Most Wanted available on Blu-ray Combo Pack and Digital HD August 12th at Disney.com.

We love family movie night!  Cuddling up on the couch, making some munchies and watching a good movie.  It’s so much fun to enjoy a good movie right in the comfort of your own home.  I love making little snacks to munch on during the movie. Our favorite?  Popcorn!  What’s movie night without a big bowl of popcorn?  

Our latest movie night was watching Muppets Most Wanted.  I love the Muppets!  I remember watching The Muppets Show on TV (yes, TV) when I was young.  Now I love bringing back those memories and watching it with my kids.

Mint Cookies and Cream Popcorn | Mother Thyme To keep with a green theme for this movie night, I popped up some yummy green(ish) Mint Cookies and Cream Popcorn to go with my buddy Kermit.  It’s the perfect sweet and salty snack all in one bowl.  Even my popcorn loving kid’s couldn’t keep their hands out of the bowl.  

Muppets Most Wanted stars the hilarious Ricky Gervais, Tina Fey and Ty Burrell and Ty Burrell.  There are a lot of cameos that you just have to wait and see!  

“Two Frogs! One Pig! Intrigue! Music! Mayhem! Muppets!

There’s plenty of fun for the whole family as Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Animal and the entire Muppets gang head out on a world tour. But mayhem follows the Muppets, as they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper. Now Kermit is behind bars at the mercy of prison warden Nadya (Tina Fey), and the World’s Number One Criminal, Constantine—a dead ringer for Kermit—has taken his place.

As Constantine and his dastardly sidekick Dominic (Ricky Gervais) plot the robbery of the century, they are pursued by Sam Eagle and Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon (Ty Burrell). Will Constantine get away with his nefarious scheme? Will Kermit escape in time to save the day? Packed with dozens of guest cameos, new songs and the most extended, most exclusive scenes not in theaters, Disney’s Muppets Most Wanted is the most hilarious, most wanted Muppet movie ever!

I hate to keep you in suspense, but you will just have to check out the movie to see what happens!

So get your bowl of popcorn ready, sit back, relax and enjoy Muppets Most Wanted.  It is a funny movie the whole family will love!
