Kathie Lee and Hoda talk 'Hunger Games' over snacks

March 26, 2012 at 1:41 PM ET

After a week of country, Kathie Lee was back, well rested and ready to get into the snack saddle again.

The ladies chatted about the gigantic opening weekend for "The Hunger Games" while dipping strawberries into Jif to Go travel-sized chocolate peanut butter cups. Seeing as it's a movie about starving children forced to hunt each other it was a bit of an unintentionally ironic Favorite Thing.

Kathie Lee said she was planning to see the movie tonight, so hopefully she'll be able to fill us in on a dystopian future without miniaturized snacks.

Julieanne Smolinski is a contributor. Until now, she has been forced to travel with a full-sized jar of peanut butter.
