Big Game Day Football Party Snack Ideas from CVS!
“As CVS Gold Emblem Ambassadors, we were compensated for this post. All views expressed are that of our own.”
The Big Game day is just weeks away! We are so thrilled that our New England team has won! Despite all the controversy, we will be rooting for them, and hope they take the trophy! Since our team made ti big, it is time to celebrate! We are so excited that we will even be having a pre-Big Game Football party!
Since many of you out there will also be celebrating in the excitement, we thought it would be helpful to create a post around some Big Game Day Football Party Snack Ideas. We most likely can all agree that football games are perfect for not only tailgating, but also “couch gating”–I totally made that up, but that is exactly what our family does! We love to have over friends and family, and celebrate game time with great snacks and food on the couch!
Did you know that CVS is an amazing place to head on over to for snacks? They have the BEST assortment of flavored nuts, salty and even sweet snacks that are all found under their Gold Emblem line. There really is something for every taste, and craving at CVS! Plus, they are perfect for Big Game parties because they are easy to pick up, reasonably priced, and they taste great!
Lets Explore some sweet and salty Game Day Goodies found at CVS:
Nuts: The Gold Emblem line of nuts at CVS is perfect for snacking or game time. With hard to resist flavors like Deluxe Mixed Nuts, Honey Roasted Cashews, and Buffalo Almonds, you and your guests will have the perfect sweet and savory snack! Let’s face it, a party is not a party without a bowl of nuts!
Trail Mix: Looking for a sweet and salty snack that kids and adults both love? How about a bowl of CVS Gold Emblem Trail Mix? Filled with chocolate candies, raisins, and an abundance of nuts, this mix is the perfect Game Day snack. You can find this VERY generous sized bag of trail mix at CVS in the snack isle for a great price!
Popcorn & Pretzels: When you watch a football game, or any game for that matter a snack like popcorn and pretzels is a must! My kids and husband LOVE getting into the game with some of CVS Gold Emblem Butter Popcorn or Pretzel Sticks. I especially LOVE the Butter Popcorn because it tastes just like movie theater popcorn, but is much more accessible!
Crackers & Veggie Chips: With all the dips, and cheese that I will be serving at my Big Game celebration party, having the perfect companion cracker is a must! I LOVE the Gold Emblem Baked Wheat Snack Crackers because they are very comparable to national “big brands”, but taste even better! They are the perfect thickness, crunch, and texture for thicker dips or cheese and meats!
If you are looking for a more colorful and slightly better for you crunchy snack you could always do fresh fruit or veggies. However, if you are like me snacks like Gold Emblem Veggie Chips are slightly more appealing during game time. These tri-colored chips are better than potato chips, and also perfect for dipping! Their lightweight texture, and veggie flavors are perfect for munching on.
Beef Jerky: While I am personally not a fan of beef jerky, most guys and even some woman are! My husband and sister LOVE the generous sized portions that come inside the CVS Gold Emblem Original Beef Jerky bags. I’ve been told they are fresh, great tasting, and ideal for game time snacking!
Cookies: Who doesn’t LOVE cookies? No one hardly has time to whip up a batch of soft baked chocolate chip cookies during an intense game. That is why CVS Gold Emblem Soft Baked Chocolate Chip Cookies are perfect for parties, and game time! They are similar to fresh baked cookie, and have that hard to resist soft texture that makes having just one a difficult choice.
Beverages: Soda, adult beverages, and water are all game time musts! Even carbonated drinks like Gold Emblem Sparkling Water are great to have on hand. I know I am much more of a water person myself so fruit flavored beverages with a bubbly kick are perfect for me! The CVS Gold Emblem like comes in many varieties like: Strawberry Flavored Sparkling Water.
Lastly, the sad truth is after all that game time indulgence, many of us will need a few antacids! I personally always have a bottle of CVS brand fruity antacids because they work just like the national big names, but they are much more inexpensive! As a treat to your guests, you should always be well stocked and have them out. There is nothing worse that a sour stomach, heartburn, or acid reflux! Be prepared with some CVS Brand Antacids.
