It's almost Game Day Sunday! The Football, the food, the commercials, the game! Lifestyle Contributor Limor Suss is sharing some super ideas for the win this Game Day!
Blue Diamond Almonds
Need a snack to munch on while watching the Big Game? Pick up some Blue Diamond Almonds! There are over 15 delicious flavors to choose from, like Salt N' Vinegar, Spicy Dill Pickle and Wasabi and Soy Sauce. It’s super flavor, all on a superfood!
For a crunchy snack, try Lundberg’s Organic Buffalo Ranch Rice Cake Minis!
They are bite-sized rice cakes that have been tumbled in the tangy spice of Buffalo Wing Sauce and are expertly balanced with a subtle ranch flavor. They’re perfectly thin, with a subtle crunch, delicious on their own or paired with your favorite dip!
Next up, the ultimate kitchen hack, Dorot Gardens! They’re flash frozen herbs that make it easy to create delicious dishes just by popping a cube!
You can make Garlic Aioli with their crushed garlic by popping three cubes into mayo, adding some lime juice and salt & pepper. Pair them with Zucchini Fries and they’re so good! Get the full recipe here!
For an easy appetizer, use the Dorot Gardens Glazed Onions! Add them to a phyllo cup with some swiss cheese, bake them at 375 for 10 min and they come out delicious. Get the full recipe here!
Dorot Gardens has a variety of herbs & spices to make your game day, and every day, a win! You can find them in the freezer section of your supermarket.
A staple for the big game is buffalo sauce! Whether you’re making buffalo wings, Buffalo Cauliflower bites or just want to add it onto your pizza.
Primal Kitchen’s award winning Buffalo Sauce is a must to have on hand for the Big Game. It’s a plant based sauce, made with high-quality ingredients like Avocado Oil, Cashew Butter, and a blend of spices. It’s Vegan, Gluten Free, Keto, Paleo and made without Xantham Gum.
Use the Buffalo Sauce to make Cauliflower Bites for Sunday’s game. Just airfry Cauliflower on 375 degrees for 15 minutes, warm up the Primal Kitchen Buffalo Sauce and drizzle over the Cauliflower. It’s so easy, quick, and delish!
You can also try making Buffalo Chicken Sliders! Just slice open dinner rolls, add cheese & chicken, then drizzle Primal Kitchen Buffalo Sauce & their newly reformulated Ranch Dressing. Top with more cheese and brush butter onto the bun and bake at 375 degrees for 15 min. They’re sure to be a win! Get the full recipe here.
Now, let’s tackle some dessert that's sure to be 'pop-ular' on Game Day Sunday! Football pops!
Limor made these using Stuffed Puffs marshmallows which might look like ordinary marshmallows, but inside they have a creamy, sweet, milk chocolate core! They come in two varieties: classic milk chocolate and chocolate-on-chocolate, both are perfect for this dessert!
To make the pops, place a Stuffed Puffs Marshmallow on a stick and dip into melted chocolate. Lay them on wax paper and place them in the fridge to harden. Once they’re hard, draw on the football laces with white icing. Get the full recipe here.
And what’s Game Day without a drink? This year, make a delicious cocktail for the Big Game! While making a cocktail at home might seem intimidating, it's actually super simple when you use a high quality mixer.
Q Mixers are a favorite to have on hand for easy cocktails! They come in 11 flavors, are all natural, Non-GMO, and made with the best ingredients sourced from around the world!
On Game Day Sunday, try making the Q Mixers’ Over Thyme. All you have to do is add Gin, grapefruit juice & honey into a cocktail shaker. Strain into a highball glass and top with Q Mixers Spectacular Tonic. Garnish with a sprig of Thyme and voila, the perfect game day cocktail!
Frito - Lay
Now, let’s talk Super Bowl commercials! Some of us watch the Game just for the commercials and Frito Lay is airing three new ones on Sunday!
There’s A Cheetos Crunch Pop Mix commercial with Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis and Shaggy. A Doritos 3d Crunch commercial with Matthew Mcconaughey, Mindy Kaling and Jimmy Kimmel. Marshawn Lynch is back to narrate “Twas The Night Before Super Bowl,” the sequel to the September’s “’’Twas The Night Before Kickoff,” featuring legends like Peyton, Eli and Archie Manning, Deion Sanders, Troy Aikman and more!
I mean who doesn’t want to see Archie Manning scolding his superstar sons while they’re in matching PJs? This is actually the first time the Frito-Lay portfolio is airing a Super Bowl Sunday commercial and the NFL stars’ hilarious Super Bowl Sunday spot is sure to get you stoked for the Big Game.
So make sure to grab a bag of your favorite Frito-Lay chips, sit back and enjoy the commercials this Sunday….enjoy the game!
If you’re getting ready for the big game, JCPenney has everything you’ll need! From kitchen electrics like Air Fryers, slow cookers and Serveware to team sports gear from their Fanshop! JCPenney has it all for game day. You can buy online or pick up in-store or curbside.
Since we likely aren’t going to be watching the Big Game with our friends, a great way to celebrate this year is with a virtual pizza party from Pizzatime!
All you do is visit pizzatime.xyz, pick a start time and the number of guests, and a hot pizza will arrive just in time for kick-off! PizzaTime will also share a link for you to watch the Big Game together virtually! It’s a fun way to celebrate birthdays and other occasions. They also offer entertainment offerings, like trivia hosts, comedians and more.
If you’re looking to set up the ultimate at-home viewing experience for the Big Game, Fire TV and Alexa can help you with a winning game plan!
Limor loves watching live sports and all my shows on my Fire TV. Did you know that you can stream the game on your Fire TV, live and for free? On Game Day, you can simply say, “Alexa, find the NFL app,” to find the game. Or stream with a CBS All Access subscription from Prime Video channels.
If you need some recipe inspiration, Food Network Kitchen has a ton of fan favorites! Say “Alexa find me recipes for the Big Game” on Echo Show or “open Food Network Kitchen” on Fire TV.
Alexa can also get you pumped with a Big Game playlist. Say, “Alexa, play the Big Game playlist on Amazon Music”
No matter which team you're rooting for, Fire TV and coach Alexa have you covered!
