Having friends over to watch the game? Keep it simple. It’s about spending time together so focus on ready-to-go snacks and interactive fun using things you have around the house or are available at your regular grocery. With these easy ideas you’ll always be ready to have friends over on a whim.
Tip // Snacks Out For Attack
Guests tend to arrive hungry so we always have snacks set out and ready to grab when they walk in the door. Have you ever been hungry at an event and unable to reach the food on the other side of the table?? Not fun! We like to set out individually portioned bowls so friends can say hello, grab and eat. You want a snack that will stay fresh and appeals to everyone. But what’s the universally loved snack that scores with every fan from College Football to Super Bowl and March Madness? Popcorn!
We think Angie’s BOOMCHICKAPOP is the ultimate popcorn. WHY? Whole grain energy made with real, simple ingredients. Amazing flavors like Caramel & Cheddar, slightly Sweet Kettle Corn, Sea Salt, Sweet & Salty and oh so many more!! It’s a special treat that’s easy to find in your regular grocery store. Just open the bag and serve!! And it’s not just food. Angie’s BOOMCHICKAPOP gets everyone excited………….a sure winner for your kick-off snack.

Tip // Edible Games
I know Mom said “Don’t play with your food!” but maybe that’s why it’s so much fun! We discovered this trick at our house when we set out interactive snacks to occupy the kids. The adults had just as much fun (if not more) building towers out of marshmallows and pretzels. Food play is a great party element and especially handy if the game is slow-moving.
We had a blast constructing edible field goals and competing for points while launching a Angie’s BOOMCHICKAPOP popcorn” football”!!
Another idea for interactive snacks is using food grade pens to write player numbers or messages on marshmallows and creating a game around it.Another idea for interactive snacks is using food grade pens to write player numbers or messages on marshmallows and creating a game around it.
Have your edible game ingredients prepped so that you can bring it out when the time is right. Whether you serve it at the kids table or as the centerpiece of the party I guarantee everyone will get involved in creating some fun!
Tip // Rhythm + Noise
Cheering is more fun when you’ve got a noise maker in hand!! We havea huge basket of musical percussion instruments and toys that our kids play with. One game day we decided to use musical instruments to get super load while rooting for our team! It was so much fun we now have them out for every game! The best part? During commercial breaks we launch into song and people take turns singing, playing and entertaining the group! It’s such fun for the kids and gives them a way to participate with the adults. And beyond that….what’s better than another opportunity to nurture the music in our hearts!
Tis’ the season for game day!! Get yourself prepared and have some fun!! #BOOMCHICKAPOP
