Savory Snacks

Savory snacks can be the most difficult. While umami satisfies, everyone has a different opinion on savory snacks. Usually, the easiest way to include this group is through a dip.

Personally, a great sausage dip is a crowd pleaser. One go to recipe is a classic sausage dip using spicy sausage, cream cheese and Rotel has been a huge hit at every single sports party in my house. Served with some tortilla chips or corn chips, that Crock Pot is empty before halftime.

For cheese fans, Stacy’s Cheese Petites offer all the cheese and cracker flavor in a single snack. The bold cheese flavor is combined with a satisfying crunch. This option is great for a single snack.

If you aren’t a dip person, the new Gardetto’s Crisps offer an amazing savory flavor. While incorporating that classic Gardetto’s seasoning, these snacks are light and crisp. They definitely satisfy but they don’t feel heavy.

Plus, these crisps pair really well with all types of beers. While not everyone has a frosty cold one while watching the game, some people do like to imbibe a little. These snacks are a new choice that many people might enjoy.
