It’s great news that snack food has become so seasonal: It’s practically farm to pantry. Now that summer is behind us, so is the time to feast on Watermelon Oreos. Likewise, it’s not quite the season for limited-time-only Candy Corn M&M’s.

It is, however, prime time for back-to-school snacks. And here are some terrific new options.

Hollywood–worthy Oscar party snacks

No matter whether you’re hosting or making a cameo appearance, there’s a lot to do before the Oscar night party train starts rolling. You have to secure an outfit that will get you voted best dressed, nail down the winners for the Oscar pool, brush up on your nominated films trivia. (CNN Entertainment has some helpful conversation starters, including that Argo director Ben Affleck had his six key actors and actresses live in close quarters for days, without Internet or air conditioning, to simulate hiding out in the Canadian ambassador’s house.)
 
And then of course there’s the all-important Oscar–viewing-party menu. You can honor the food in the nominated films—maybe find a recipe for Crabby Snacks or serve a big bowl of Raisin Bran in a nod to Silver Linings Playbook. Alternatively, you can go high-style Hollywood and order these fancy snacks and beverages, whether it’s for the Oscars or another fashionable party.

Twinkie-maker Hostess Brands said Monday that it could go into liquidation if its bakers continue striking in protest against a new contract imposed in bankruptcy court.

The company announced Monday that it was closing bakeries in Seattle, St. Louis and Cincinnati in response to the strike, cutting 627 jobs in total. The bakers' strike, which began last week, continued Monday at around 24 of Hostess' 36 plants, and Hostess CEO Greg Rayburn said the firm could close more bakeries or even move into liquidation if workers don't return to their jobs soon.

An obsession is Bourne! Meet the new wave of movie snacks

You’ve seen the omnipresent ads. Now get ready for the first Bourne movie without Jason Bourne.
 
And when we say, "get ready," we mean, "start thinking about your movie snack strategy." Whether or not you need something to get you through a Bourne installment that doesn’t include Matt Damon is your own decision. (Personally, we’re big fans of Jeremy Renner, too.)

Remember, The Bourne Legacy is one of the last big action films of the summer. According to a recent New York Times story, "More Bitter Pills than Popcorn," the fall movies are going to tackle tough issues. Exhibit A: Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming Django Unchained is a brutal tale about a former slave who hunts white plantation owners.

So we say, break out the popcorn (or your favorite popcorn alternative) now while it’s still summer and the action heroes are still on-screen in full force."
