To say that this year’s tournament has had people seeing the unexpected might be a big understatement. Even if that favorite team will not be making their way to Houston in the Final Four, there are still plenty of March Madness Munchies to enjoy. From food deals to sweet treats, everyone will be satisfied.

Pizza and March Madness are always a winning pair. While Pizza Hut brought back its special hoop box, DIGIORNO Cry Pie might have captured the sentiment of this year’s tournament even before it began. This special pizza is all onion, three types of onions, caramelized yellow onions, red onions and even green onions. The whole pizza is topped with mozzarella cheese and a creamy alfredo-style sauce.

While this special pizza is not available in stores, many people would love to enjoy a slice. Everyone can enter for a chance to win one at through April 3.

For a sweet treat, consider buying some of the Kinder Joy NBA themed candy. While the toy inside might be an NBA mascot, it is still basketball. Sometimes rediscovering the simplicity of kid candy can bring a smile through the tears.
