Are you ready for all the passing, dribbling, bouncing, dunking and noise-making? No, I’m not talking about hanging out with my toddler; I’m talking about watching basketball! It’s March, that time of year when college hoops get a little crazy with the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship. Since the tournament starts in a few days and the final games are weeks away, it will be a month full of sports. And what goes hand in hand with sports-watching? Snacking! So, here's my suggestion: pace yourself and guard against unnecessary additives like hydrogenated oils, artificial colors, flavors and preservatives. To that end, here are some sports-watching snacks favorites that meet our Quality Standards and still will keep you crunching, dipping, and sipping and rooting for more all March long: Laurel Hill Kettle Cooked Potato Chips
