As brands unveil their big game commercials and fans start to prepare their flavorful menus, Target is ready to serve some big savings for shoppers. With 40 game day staples under $5, it seems that the food budget will score with affordable options this year.

Whether it is egg prices or other food expenses, the shopping list might be a little more pared down compared to years past. Although some people might have a favorite food, snack or other item that will always be in the shopping basket, a few other choices might be left on the shelf. Finding that great shopping deal has become a quest that many people are willing to take.

With the big game on the horizon, many people want to have that football and food celebration. Whether the gathering is small or large, people may not want to scrimp and save when it comes to the event. From bowls overflowing with snacks to platters of appetizers, the excitement over the annual event gets everyone hungry.

This year, Target has unveiled 40 game day staples that are priced under $5. For the budget conscious consumer, this list makes it easier create that football spread and maybe have some extra money to put towards those football squares.

According to Rick Gomez, Target’s Chief Food and Beverage Officer, “Whether you’re tuning in for the football or the commercials, Target has everything you need for the big game – including over 40 delicious snacks, drinks and appetizers priced under $5. And it’s all available on your terms. You can head into your local store or use our mobile app or to arrange same-day home delivery or free curbside pickup in our parking lot right in time for kickoff.”

What are some of the Target game day staples top picks?

While shoppers can peruse the complete list for themselves, a few Target game day staples are definite winners. Since the big game is often about having lots of options on the table, Target has some classic appetizers that should make their way into the cart.

From the Market Pantry Frozen Beef & Cheese Mini Tacos to Market Pantry Frozen Cream Cheese Stuffed Jalapeno Poppers, these classic appetizers are perfect for football watching. The smaller bites are a crowd pleaser. Plus, the easy prep ensures that the host does not miss any of the big game action.

Or, consider getting some Market Pantry Thin Crust Pepperoni Frozen Pizza. Priced at just $4.19, it is much less than delivery. Consider cutting the pizzas into smaller, bite sized pieces for easy eating.

Dips are always a popular choice during the big game. Good and Gather has several items under $5. From the guacamole and salsa to the Buffalo-Style Chicken Dip, these items will ensure that those munching moments get satisfied.

Lastly, any event needs a sweet ending, which is why shoppers could consider the Favorite Day White Frosted Sugar Cookies. These soft sugar cookies are always a popular choice. It might be a good idea to purchase a second package because it is hard to eat just one of these cookies.

The complete list of Target game day staples under $5 can be found online. Just remember to prepare early or place a same day order via Shipt. When kick off happens, everyone wants to be front and center for all the action.
