Clinch the Win

Party dips are fun to eat with skinny dippers like fresh veggies, baked pita triangles or whole-grain crackers. Dannon® Oikos® Greek Yogurt Dips blend rich and tangy Dannon® Traditional Greek Yogurt with the bold flavors of French Onion and Roasted Red Pepper. Compared to other dips, they are light on calories and fat with just 25 calories and one gram of fat per two-tablespoon serving. And, they’re not just for dipping. Try using them as a topping for chili, nachos or sandwiches too.

Get Fired Up

What’s a football party without hot wings and spicy buffalo chicken dip? When making these game-day favorites, use one-of-a-kind Frank’s® RedHot® Buffalo Sauce which delivers authentic restaurant flavor right out of the bottle. To add zesty heat to pizza, hummus and veggie dip, try Original Cayenne Pepper that’s made with a premium blend of aged cayenne peppers and savory flavors. Visit their website for a collection of recipes for game day and every day.

Avoid a Fumble

A recent study found that sports fans turn to fatty and sugary foods for comfort when their team falls in defeat. Be mindful of food choices during pre- and post-game festivities and opt for lower calorie and fat foods like raw veggies, baked snacks or whole-grain chips to avoid a diet fumble. Baked!® Lay’s® contain less fat than fried chips with the light and crisp texture and flavor you crave from crunchy snacks. Look for Barbecue, Cheddar and Sour Cream and Sour Cream and Onion varieties.

Finger Lickin’ Good

If you prefer barbecue flavor to buffalo, pour it on with Sticky Fingers® Smokehouse Barbecue Sauce. All three of their bold-tasting sauces including Carolina Sweet, Memphis Original and Carolina Classic make everything from pulled barbecue chicken or pork, ribs, wings and burgers finger lickin’ good! Savor real southern barbecue flavor with Carolina Sweet Barbecue Sauce in our recipe for saucy Pineapple- BBQ Glazed Meatballs.

Add Zing and Zip

From sandwiches to brats, burgers and more, use French’s® Spicy Brown Mustard to add big, bold taste, plus thick and rich texture from brown mustard seeds. Or add zing to sloppy joes, marinades, glazes and macaroni and cheese and other recipes with French’s® Classic Yellow Mustard. Both varieties are low in calories and fat free.

Pass the Pickles

For crunchy, flavorful pickles that taste like homemade, try Farmer’s Garden™ by Vlasic®. These artisan pickles start with the finest U.S.-grown cucumbers that are harvested at the peak of freshness and married with specially-selected ingredients like whole garlic cloves, carrots, red bell peppers and herbs and spices. Taking home-style a step further, they’re hand-packed in glass Mason jars using traditional canning techniques. Serve their Bread & Butter, Zesty Garlic or Kosher Dill Chips and Kosher Dill Spears on a build-your-own sandwich bar or use them to create a relish tray.

Dress the Part

Whether leafy green salads are on your buffet or not, salad dressings have a place on the menu. If you plan to get grillin’ on game day, use Ken’s® oil- and vinegar based Salad Dressings like Light Balsamic Vinaigrette, Zesty Italian or Greek to marinate chicken, steak or pork chops. Or serve Lite Blue Cheese or Honey Mustard with a veggie tray as a last-minute dip.
