The Big Game is almost here!  Did your favorite team make it to the match up between the final two?  Or are you just planning to watch for the commercials?

Either way, you’re probably going to want some tailgating food.  I like to serve lots of finger foods, then mix in one or two main entrees.  So I thought I’d share a few of my favorite dessert and appetizer recipes sure to please no matter how big or small your crowd will be.

This post on snacks is brought to you by Goodies Co.  All opinions are my own.

Ever see a new snack at the store and think, “Hey, that looks cool, I’d like to try it!” but then you don’t, because you don’t want to spend $8 on a bag of wasabi nuts you’re not sure you’ll even like?  Yeah, me, too.  Sometimes it’s a unique flavor combination, sometimes it’s just a food I’ve never had before.  It might even be two things I enjoy – like chocolate and pomegranate – but who knows if I’ll like them together?  And I’d rather not spend six bucks on a small bag of chocolate-covered dried pomegranate arils just to find out it’s gross (it’s not, by the way – so delicious).

Monthly Snacks

That’s why I think you’ll love a new monthly snack subscription box called Goodies Co.  Subscription boxes are kind of the rage right now and, in my opinion, that’s for a good reason.  You get a selection of cool products to try for a low cost.  Plus you don’t have to do all the work of searching them out, going to the store, being disappointed that your store isn’t carrying them yet, etc.  You just sit at home, watching Downton Abbey, and wait for the box to arrive.
