Netflix is one app that is helping us get through quarantine life, but the way we watch with family and friends has changed. Now more than ever, we’re seeing people come together to Netflix and Zoom, joining virtually to watch a show or movie together.
One thing that hasn’t changed though, is the fact that no Netflix marathon is complete without snacks. Instead of grabbing your favorite chips or popcorn, why not turn things up a notch with some sweet and salty treats that are easy to make. We’ve paired six popular Netflix shows with some tasty, on-theme treats. Share them with friends or give them some food envy.
