Game Day Snacks- Bring It On!

Looking for some great game day snacks for your upcoming football party? Football season is a time when most diets go out the window!  It’s a time to get together with friends and bond over your love of the game.  Especially in the south, we can’t have a football party without great food, cold beverages, and friends!

During those games, it’s always nice to have a snack or two around! It doesn’t matter if you’re watching alone, or with a group of friends.  Something about football and snacks just makes sense.

The best snacks for football games, or any sport for that matter, are something you can grab and go.  So think… finger foods.  It’s also great to have some variety, especially when you have a large group to serve.  And if kids are involved, you definitely want simple and not TOO messy!

A few things to remember:

  • Don’t stress over the food
  • Keep it simple
  • Grab your favorites
  • Don’t forget to have some drink options– unless it’s BYOB!
  • Make sure you’ve got plates, napkins and cups
  • Don’t over-buy… but make sure you have enough.  Having a head count is definitely helpful.

Have fun with it.  If you’re not a cook– don’t start now! Because you don’t need the stress, the mess, or taking ALL that time to prepare new things! You can always call ahead and order the food– or grab some pre-made items at the store. But if you’re wondering about what foods are most popular for football games, we’ve got a few ideas for you!

And make sure to check out these items that will have you game day ready at all times!
