Football season has sprung and fans around the country are gearing up for America’s favorite pastime. That means tailgating!
Aside from bringing excitement for their team, football fans typically come hungry and expect delicious food while tailgating or watching the game in the comfort of your warm home.
Are you ready for some touchdown worthy deals that would complete your football bash? This month’s commissary specials offer great options to help you save money.
Start with a bag of Banquet Chicken nuggets ($2.50 each), which is the ideal football finger food. They have fun shaped nuggets too– for the kids or kids at heart.
Then, grab some hearty chili from Wolf Brand that offers chili with beans ($0.89 for 15 oz. can) or no beans ($1.19 15 oz. can)–for those that believe that “real” chili is beanless. Chili is perfect by itself or an addition for hot dogs, hamburgers and cheese dip (or where I come from we call it queso). Use original Velveeta cheese (on sale at $5.99) and throw it in a slow cooker with your chili preference for an easy and tasty side dish with chips.
Mix in PACE Restaurant Style Salsa (2 for $3) with Velveeta cheese for another dip selection that has a great south-of-the-border kick. It’s always good to have different choices. Feeling ambitious? Try throwing everything together (chili, cheese and some salsa).
For another meatless side dish, heat up VanCamp’s New Orleans Red Kidney Beans ($0.65) or Dark Red Kidney Beans ($0.59) to satisfy everyone’s palate. Bring Swiss Miss Hot Cocoa Mix ($3.99) Milk Chocolate or Marshmallow to stay warm on the cool evenings.
Don’t forget one of the most important condiment for your football party– ketchup! Starting October 9, Hunt’s Ketchup is only $0.75 for a 24-ounce bottle. Stock up to make sure you don’t run out of ketchup all football season long.
October is also the month for spooktacular fun for families with Halloween. Looking for the perfect family dinner after a night of trick or treating (or any other busy night)? There are a variety of frozen pizza choices that would be perfect to cook in the oven for a speedy dinner. For instance, Tombstone pizza is on sale for $2.75 each all month long. Check out other frozen pizza specials throughout the month and keep them in the freezer for the right night.
