Summer Essentials for Celebrations!

Summer celebrations are on the rise, and many of us are getting ready to host our first parties in a looooong time. There are some new products that hit the market to make party prep easier, so keep it simple and enjoy the time with family and friends! These are my favorite summer essentials for celebrations.

Snacks and Sweets

Many of us have led a fairly…sedentary lifestyle the past year or so, and we are all on the lookout for healthier snacks and sweets. Here are a few I found that keep the taste, but cut out the carbs/sugar.

HiLo Life Hilo Life Almond Flour Tortilla Style Chips– following a Keto diet has risen in popularity in the past years, and finding crunchy, satisfying snacks low in carbs is a major struggle. HiLo Life chips have only 3g net carbs per serving and 9g protein! They are selling 12 oz. bags at Costco currently- perfect for your next party.

Quest Candy Bites– Enjoy Quest’s Candy Bites and satisfy your sweet tooth at home or on the go with these new bite-sized indulgences. Gooey Caramel and Fudgey Brownie are both available at, and many retailers nationwide, including Target.

Main Dish with Ease

If you are a fan of grilling but haven’t upped your grill game in years, ManCrates can help out. They are the ultimate online destination for pre-packaged gifts and supplies, and their crates are an easy and impressive way to kick off the summer.

Grill Master Crate ($99.99)– Their Grill Master Man Crate includes a cast-iron smoker box and some hickory wood chips to get you started, as well as a trio of BBQ sauces, a premium spice blend, a set of 4 steak thermometers, and my favorite- a brass-knuckle meat tenderizer.

Easy, Crowd-Pleasing Beverages

Instead of making a custom cocktail or trying to keep a fully stocked bar, grab something that appeals to almost everyone! Schöfferhofer is my go-to: my friends loved their Pomegranate and Grapefruit beer, and now that Passion Fruit is hitting the shelves, we have a new favorite!

Passion Fruit Beer

They blend real passion fruit juice with German hefeweizen beer, making it appealing to beer drinkers and traditionally non-beer-drinkers alike. 

Cheers to kicking off the summer with my favorite new finds!
