The Big Game Snacks

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are honest and my own, as always.

I know, I know, everyone is excited about the rivalry of football. I’ll be honest- the snacks are what I get most excited about. Here are a few ways to easily pull together a crowd-pleasing spread without spending hours in the kitchen.

Delicious Dip: La Terra Fina

I used to try and make all of my dips from scratch. Buy the multiple different kinds of cheese, artichokes, spices, etc… Once I discovered La Terra Fina dips, that all went out the window. La Terra Fina Dips & Spreads contain no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives and are made with lots of fresh vegetables and herbs. They taste homemade! You can serve them hot or cold. I like to put the Spinach Artichoke dip in a small crock pot and serve with toasted sourdough slices.

Stress-Relieving Snack: Wonderful Pistachios

I’m addicted to pistachios, and that addiction has reached a whole new level since they introduced a new in-shell flavor: Seasoned Salt. I even have a pistachio pedestal (yes, this is a thing) that I put on the counter every time I have guests. Even if people come early, I can easily open a bag and it is an instant snack. Plus, cracking open pistachios is so satisfying, right?


Protein-Packed: Chili with Quest Nacho Cheese Tortilla Style Protein Chips

For parties, there is often a lot of carbs but little protein. For a football viewing party that might last for hours, you need to supply your guests with some substance. I love serving chili (Tip: Costo sells pre-made chili and it is SO GOOD) along with chips. I adore the Quest Protein Chips- they have 18g of protein per serving. This is the perfect foundation for all the other sweet & salty treats you serve.

Centerpiece Cake: Carvel Gameball

You can’t get more football themed than this Carvel Gameball Icecream Cake! It is the perfect centerpiece for your spread, and the chocolate crunchies perfectly mimic football texture. Grab a couple because this will surely be a touchdown for your guests! You can find them by heading to and using the store finder.
