Non-Rustle PVC Sweet Wrappers

For the Considerate Cinema-goer

There's nothing more infuriating for cinema-goers (other than perhaps the offensive odour of popcorn) than futile attempts to slowly un-wrap a sweet wrapper during the decisive part of the movie.

I propose that the big confectionary companies adapt the technology already employed by producers of incontinence pants and launch a "cinema friendly range" of products packaged in non-rustling wrappers made from 100% non-rustle PVC. This would leave us to focus on the real cinema villians ..... popcorn munchers!

       We've done this before, though I can't find it.   

       I believe you'll find that cinemas like to sell noisy (and smelly) foods, as it encourages other cinema-goers to buy them too.
