I would prefer ordering premade snacks for the Super Bowl than buying all the ingredients and making the food myself. I don't mind jarred salsa or chips in a bag. It should be easy and enjoyable on game day.

I would appreciate if you would list the kosher status of sale items. Often when I send my husband to shop most of the products have no kosher supervision so I can't use them. we have virtually stopped shopping at your store because of that,.

@CONNIE - The count of wings and the special ordering process will differ between stores. I would suggest calling the store directly for the quickest response for wing count and special ordering. You can reach them at 303.470.6003.

@ALIZAH - Since the sales in our stores differ, we do not have an overall list of Kosher items that are on sale at each store. You can always reach out to your local store directly to see if this is something they offer, otherwise, the items should be listed on the packaging if they are Kosher.

@MS. FINE - The 365 pepperjack cheese pictured above is not Kosher. Check with your local store to see what pepperjack options they have in stock!

Today I bought a sausage pizza from your store in Metairie, LA. It was burnt and tasted stale. Should I return it?
