Party Pleasers For Football Fans: Game Day Recipes & Snack Ideas: Recipes and Snack Ideas for the big game! Having friends over? These easy recipes and snack ideas are perfect for your get together!
Hey Y’all!! It’s time for another awesome BabbleBoxx Post!
But if you don’t remember, or if you’re new here, you might be asking yourself, What’s a BabbleBoxx post?
For a BabbleBoxx post, the BabbleBoxx company gathers up some new (and all time favorite) products with a certain theme and boxes them up into BabbleBoxxes. Then they ship those boxes out to bloggers/influences like me. I get the box, go through the items in each package and then share them with y’all!
You might find some new products here that you didn’t know about, you might stumble onto a few new recipes that end up as family favorites and you just might be reminded of some products that you haven’t used in a while!
It’s always fun to see which products are in the boxes!
So what did we pull out of the box first?
RAGÚ® Old World Style Traditional Sauce & Double Cheddar Sauce
We’ve had RAGÚ® Old World Style Traditional Sauce stocked in our pantry for years. Not only did we start buying it when we got married but my parents had this sauce in their pantry the whole time I lived there.
This pasta sauce is made with vine-ripened tomatoes and it contains two servings of vegetables in every 1/2 cup of sauce!
When I was growing up, RAGÚ® sauces were pretty much only used for spaghetti night but it can be used for so many more recipes!
How about these Cheesy Shredded BBQ Chicken Sandwiches!
The RAGÚ® Old World Style Traditional Sauce is mixed with a few more ingredients to make the perfect BBQ sauce for these shredded chicken sandwiches. Great for dinner but this BBQ chicken is also awesome on sweet rolls or biscuits for a party or game day food table!

Next, the RAGÚ® Double Cheddar Sauce!
This is a product that I’ve seen on the shelf at the store for years but never bought it because I didn’t know what to make with it. However, since it was in my box I thought I’d give it a try. Turns out that this RAGÚ® Double Cheddar Sauce is PERFECT for mac and cheese recipes!
This cheddar sauce includes Cheddar, Parmesan, and Romano Cheese, plus it just makes mac and cheese super creamy!
I tried it out in this “One Dish Easy Cheesy Mac and Cheese” recipe and it was perfect. I made a batch of mac and cheese for the office and it got rave reviews. Some people have e-mailed me and told me that it’s one of the Best Mac & Cheese recipes they’ve tried in a while! I love that!
This mac and cheese is the perfect side dish for those Cheesy Shredded BBQ Chicken Sandwiches!!

This RAGÚ® Double Cheddar Sauce would also be great over nachos or baked potatoes!!

Garden of Eatin’® Chips
Everyone knows that game day isn’t complete without chips! Chips and dip are one of my favorite party foods. If there aren’t chips and did there, it isn’t a party! Now these chips don’t need dip but who doesn’t love dip with their chips!?!
These Organic corn chips are a great Big Game day snack!
They sent us 3 flavors of Garden of Eatin’® Chips to try:

They have 9 Lunch sandwiches as well as 4 breakfast sandwiches, including their NEW Sriracha Chicken Sandwich that is covered in Sriracha grilled chicken, cheese and served on Advance Pierre’s signature corn-dusted bun!

Midea Air Fryer
Now this beauty right here is the Midea’s new MFTN3501 Air Fryer!
I’ve been debating on getting an air fryer for a few months now and I was super excited when this one showed up on my door step!
I’ve seen lots of air fryer recipes online and photos floating around on Instagram lately!
I just wasn’t sure if it was worth it though.
Let me tell you, the Midea MFTN3501 Air Fryer didn’t disappoint! As soon as we got it, I wiped it down and decided to make some mozzarella sticks for Thomas. They were fantastic! I can’t wait to make “fried chicken” and fries in this!
The air fryer, lets you enjoy your favorite fried foods with less than 80 percent of the fat than if they were deep fried.
This particular air fryer is powered by 1500 watts of super-heated air that circulates to fry the food. You can also grill, bake, and roast with the this air fryer!

Formaggio Italian Cheeses
So anyone that knows us knows that Thomas and I both love cheese! If I ever had to give up cheese I’d probably cry myself to sleep. 😉
So we were pretty excited about trying these Formaggio Italian Cheeses.
First up, we’ve got the Fresh Marinated Mozzarella tub (above) which is packed with fresh mozzarella hand tossed in a marinade of herbs and spices.
Then we’re got the Artisan Wraps! These were Thomas’ favorite! He LOVES Pepperoni and Prosciutto with Fresh Mozzarella cheese.
These wraps are Italian style meats wrapped around fresh mozzarella. These cheesy treats are best served at room temperature and both of these can be found in Sam’s Club and Costco.
If you’re making a charcuterie board for the Big Game day, these would be great along side some fruit and crackers!
