Whether you’re a die-hard “touchdown or bust” or “I’m just here for the commercials” fan, this is the year to go all out with play-worthy snacks and delicious dips, plus a six-pack of your favorite beer or hard seltzer.** We have the perfect picks for hosts, guests who love to bring something and anyone who wants to lay low and snack on the couch.
How to Secure Your Game Day Snacks
Ready to eat undefeated? Here are all the ways to level up your big game lineup at your Whole Foods Market store, from an epic build-your-own nacho bar on our Game Day Catering Menu opens in a new tab to whole hot cheese pizza to-go in our Prepared Foods department.
First-String Football Snacks to Pick Up
Whether you’re on the way to a game-watching venue or you’ve invited a few friends over, we’ve gathered key players — aka snacks and beer** — for the biggest football-watching event of the year. Stop by your nearest Whole Foods Market store opens in a new tab to stock up on these football-friendly offerings in our aisles.
When it comes to chicken wings, you’ve got plenty of options to choose from in our Prepared Foods department. Fully cooked, heat-and-eat wings are available in traditional Buffalo, barbecue and sweet chili sauces.
From hop-forward IPAs to clean tasting and crisp pilsners, your store’s assortment of local beer options make this a foolproof call. In fact, we leave the majority of the selection in any given Whole Foods Market Beer department up to our regional buyers to decide. As experts on their local brews, that means you’re sure to find a unique six-pack or special bottle to try.
While it’s practically required for any watching party, keep an eye out for delicious variations of our made-in-house guacamole (like kaleamole or srirachamole, available in select stores) to keep you on your toes. Don’t forget fresh veggies and tortilla chips for dipping.
Don’t think twice, just go for it. Pick up a platter of pretzel bites from our Bakery department and dive straight into the tangy mustard. Repeat. There are no limits to blitzes in the snacking playbook. (Pretzel-style salt is included, too.)
There are two sides to this play, which is key to winning over every football fan at the party — meat eaters and non-meat eaters alike. Take your pick between turkey or beef meatballs or meatless vegan versions, sauced up for plenty of snacking.
Looking for more? Don't miss whole hot cheese pizza, tortilla chips and queso, rainbow sushi rolls, and more in our Prepared Foods department.
