Super Bowl Sunday is almost here!
It’s one of the top days of the year to entertain and enjoy some of the best snack and junk foods which you save for special occasions.
It’s a day to pick a team, invite over your friends, eat, drink, and watch a great football game (or the commercials!).
We’re still a week away, so all you have to do right now is invite over some friends for the game – which is on Sunday February 5th – and decide if you’ll be supporting the Patriots or the Falcons.
Next week you can begin tackling the task of cleaning and preparation.
The most important part of your Super Bowl party, besides having great seating and a working TV, is the food!
Good food can make or break a party, and if your friends come over for drinks and food you can make it a Super Bowl to remember, regardless of the game’s outcome.
Start thinking about the drinks, foods, and treats you’d like to provide.
A variety of sips, salty, spicy, sweet, and safe is the way to go.
What Snacks Should You Buy For The Super Bowl?
Provide a variety of drinks for your guests.
Start with a large pitcher of filtered water or water bottles.
Consider a fun party punch – pouring Sprite, Fresca, or other citrus-y drinks over a fruity flavor of sherbet is delicious and easy!
A mix of sodas or alcoholic beverages is always a good idea, especially if you find out your guest’s preferred drinks beforehand.
Chips & Dip are a crowd pleaser.
Tortilla chips with guacamole, bean dip, queso, or mild salsa is an easy choice.
Ruffled potato chips with an onion or dill dip are also easy!
Crackers with a cheese ball or relish tray can also satisfy everyone from kids to adults.
Hot wings are almost a Super Bowl necessity!
You can make your own, order them takeout from your favorite restaurant, or go the easy route and buy a bag of frozen hot wings from your local grocery store.
Serve with ranch & bleu cheese dip, carrots and celery on the side.
Consider providing a honey barbecue option for those who don’t love the heat.
Most of the traditional Super Bowl foods are salty or spicy appetizers that pair well with drinking.
Don’t forget to provide something for the sweet tooth!
Cookies, brownies, or cupcakes are easy choices.
You can use a box mix, buy from the grocery bakery, or from a fancier bakery or restaurant.
Chocolate dipped strawberries are an easy finger food loved by all ages.
Any combination of potatoes and cheese is going to be a safe bet.
Cheese fries, a baked potato bar, or loaded potato skins can be customized for each guest.
Make it yourself or buy a frozen version from the freezer section!
Stock your kitchen, load up a plate, and settle in for kickoff!
