Big flaw with movies in VR, total showstopper, expertise needed [NotSerious]

I'm completely new to VR. I bought an Oculus Quest two weeks ago and is experiencing new things constantly. Most things are quite awesome and mind altering stuff.

Now to the problem...  I really like watching 3D movies in VR. But! How do you eat with the VR headset on???

What have you, more experienced VR sensei's, come up?
What are your tricks to not slobber or spread popcorn all over the room? Or is it impossible to munch on treats while in VR?

    Sweets yes meals no, take it off  :D
    A PC with lots of gadgets inside and a thing to see in 3D that you put on your head.

    Maybe they can add in VR popcorn, all the fun of eating during the movie with no mess and no weight gain.

    Straws are indeed a basic necessity for watching movies in VR. 👍
    Then there is the risk of tipping over the glas... But there are solutions to that.

    Basically things with straw or hard small candy is fine. While large things, sticky things or things that need a spoon or a fork is not an option. So no ice-cream, which is sad. I might need to look in to astronaut food, most of that is served with a straw... Hmmmm...

    Watching movie in bathtub is always a good option. You can spill how much you like and afterwards just wash yourself in tub. Easier, if you are watching movie naked already.
