A woman revealed in a viral TikTok that she found the nacho cheese used in Cineplex movie theaters for under $5.

The video was uploaded by TikTok user Mindy (@mmindyy23) where she unveiled shelves of Cineplex Big Screen Snax Jalapeño nacho cheese. According to, a plate of nachos at the movie theater chain costs $6.99.

However, Mindy was able to find the cheese in a container of four individual cups for $4.97. In the caption, the content creator revealed she found the cheese at a store called Giant Tiger.

The Giant Tiger is a convenience store located in Canada. The store sells a variety of items, including, “home goods, women’s, kids & men’s fashion, groceries, seasonal products, and more.” Cineplex is a Canadian movie theater chain with over 160 locations across the country.
