Super Bowl Snacks From TGI Fridays & Nathan's Famous

Game time is almost here! If you haven’t planned your party yet, and like me are waiting until the last minute, I have some great ideas for snacks for you. Let’s face it, a Super Bowl just isn’t the same without snack foods on every table and in the hand of every guest. 

Thankfully finding great, unique snacks that everyone will love is as easy as running to the shop and grabbing several bags of the new TGI Fridays or Nathan’s Famous snacks. You can get the same great flavors you love but in snack varieties! And I must say they are awesome. For my party this year we are trying three new varieties. 

The first we tried was the TGI Fridays Extreme Heat Crunchy Fries. You might recall I have said before that these are not for lightweight snackers! When they say extreme heat they are serious! My husband who loves all things spicy simply adored them straight from the bag. I tried that but found I couldn’t take it so I added to buttered bread and had a spicy fries sandwich. We are big chip sandwich fans, if you haven‘t tried that before I highly recommend it. 

We also tried the TGI Friday's Jalapeno Poppers which were spicy but a lot milder and more for all style of snackers from mild to spicy. These have an awesome cheesy flavor but finish with a blast of heat! Fans of poppers will love them. They were the first bag to empty this weekend! They even emptied before the onion rings which are always on hand because they are a household favorite!

We had never tried Nathan’s Famous snacks before so I was pretty excited to see them in the shop. After determining that bacon improves any recipe, Nathan’s Famous recently expanded its licensed snack food line with the addition of Bacon & Cheddar Crunchy Crinkle Fries. These are so good, I seriously sat and ate the whole bag in one sitting.

The next time you have a room full of hungry fans be ready with TGI Fridays & Nathan’s Famous Snacks! Bonus time! Three lucky readers will also have a chance to try these for free!
