Do you get excited preparing for the big game? Is celebrating at home considered homegating? If your answer is yes, then you’re going to enjoy reading my three tips on how to get ready for the big game.

It’s time to turn up the volume and look forward to the season every year after on the television because, for the next few hours, your guests will be cheering on their football team after a touchdown or field goal. In my home, we’re huge fans of football. Whatever the case may be, one thing is for sure, never skimp out on the snacks for your viewing party.

That’s right, I said it! I’m talking about snacks that you can place in a bowl and people can grab a handful and go! We love snacks that can be eaten alone or paired beside a tasty dip or sandwich. Oh yes, I’m preaching about the new Cheez-It® Snap’d™ Double Cheese snacks from Publix.

These new cheesy snacks have become a new staple in my home and you can read more about why below.


Tip 1- It’s All About the Snacks! 



Let’s talk about making things count and getting your crowd cheering. Did you know that choosing the right snacks for your crowd is an essential part of hosting and preparing for the big game day party? Cheez-It Snap’d snacks are a new cheesy baked snack that is super thin and crispy. It’s made with real cheese inside and out for big cheese flavor.

What’s not to love about a 100% real cheese snack that’s baked in and then sprinkled on top for a real cheese hit? Not one thing! I will say, having a light crisp texture keeps me coming back for more and more!



Tip 2 – How to Prepare For the Big Game

By decorating “BIG” of course. It’s time to go big or go home. When it comes to decorating for game day, decorate like a winner. There’s no need to get fancy but you can show your team spirit by adding colored balloons, streamers, matching tablecloths, plates, and plasticware. -And if you want to get creative, include a table full of crafts for the young ones. It’s a nice gesture for guests who will be bringing their kids.

My crowd likes to relax when watching the big game especially, my husband. So to keep him and our friends comfortable and happy, I offer plenty of space to jump up and roam around. One more thing, football-themed drink coasters are super handy to have around too!



Tip 3- Prepare Ahead of Time

I’d like to think that preparing food ahead of time makes a world of difference before your guest start to arrive.  I try to lean towards food creations that I can make before so I don’t miss out on any gameplay action.

Here’s a half time tip!

One of the things that we like to do during half time is to play some games. We play big game bingo. It’s a great way to entertain your guest while waiting for the third quarter to begin. Also, watching half time commercials then rating them is a fun way to pass the time.



We might disagree on football teams but let’s agree on one thing, the big game comes around once a year so let’s make the right snacks count!

If you’re looking to turn up the cheese volume on game day then try Cheez-It Snap’d snacks.

From 01/19/19 – 02/01/19, you can save on new, Cheez-It Snap’d Double Cheese snacks at your local Publix!
