What a Football Family Snacks On!

It’s no secret we’re big fans of football in my family and when it comes to a great game day, snacks are a given. From the moment GameDay comes on Saturday mornings, we’ve got snacks set out ready to take in all the action. And then press repeat on Sunday and even some Monday nights too. Football fanatics!

I was so pumped the other day when I found these football shaped pretzels at World Market. Aren’t they the cutest? I used them several years ago to make my Touchdown Brownies, but haven’t been able to find them in a few years. I might or might not have bought 5 huge containers of them for fear I might not find them again for another few years. Lol!

No need to fear, World Market told me that they carry these football shaped pretzels every football season. How in the world did I miss them?! The brand is Utz!

Of course, if you can’t find them, any pretzels will do and your crowd will still go crazy over this snack mix!
