Bite size for Super Bowl 50

Whether you’re hosting a party or attending a friends get together, everyone gets to be an
footballavid football fan (or just a fan of the commercials) during the super bowl. Now there are three things that make the perfect super bowl party; a nice big screen TV (or two) to watch the game on, good friends to enjoy it with, and excellent food to compliment the other two. While we can’t get you the perfect TV to watch the game on or good friends to cheer on your favorite team with, we can help you make the best food for the game!

Unfortunately, we can’t cover all of the great food you could possibly serve at your game day party, but we can help narrow down your search! If you are looking for a mix between a meal and an appetizer…sliders are the way to go. We’ve got you covered there! If you’re looking for a small bite-sized snack, we’ve got you covered there too! With all of the excitement and people trying to find the best place to watch the game, you’ve got to have snacks that are on the go! Don’t forget the infamous migration between the group who only leave the TV for commercial break and the group who only leave the food table for the commercial break! Without the right mobile snacks, that could be a real disaster!
