Movie Sweets Trivia: A Quiz for Lovers

Willy Wonka certainly isn’t the only huge screen character to win people’s hearts through rich confections. And Harry Potter? Well, we’ve all learned that eating chocolate wards off evil spirits and that some jelly beans taste better than others. Throughout more than 100 years of cinema, filmmakers have loved using sweet treats to symbolize the sweetness of like.

Nowhere is this more common than in romantic date movies. Boy meets girl. Boy falls in like with girl. Boy faces obstacle to like. Boy presents sweets for the sweet and overcomes obstacle. Boy and girl live happily ever after.

So bring on the dessert! If these treats help on-screen couples get closer together, then maybe they’ll work for you, too, on Valentine’s Day, your anniversary, or any special occasion.

Match each sweet situation with the romantic movie that featured it. For each right answer, be sure to reward yourself with an indulgent dessert. Answers appear below.
