Whether you’re a die-hard “50-yard line or bust” or “I’m just here for the commercials” fan, this is the year you’ll win the title of Best Guest. We’ve assigned plays to key players — that would be the snacks — for the biggest football-watching party of the year.
Suit up! It’s time to pick up your football snacks before kickoff. Check out these game-winning picks at your Whole Foods Market store.
Play: Quarterback Sneak
Has there ever been a party without guacamole present? While it’s practically required for any watching party, keep an eye out for delicious variations (like kaleamole or srirachamole, available in select stores) on our made-in-house guacamole to keep everyone at the party on their toes.
When it comes to wings, you’ve got plenty of options to choose from in our Prepared Foods department. Fully cooked, heat-and-eat wings are available in spicy-sweet Honey Black Pepper, Barbeque, Buffalo and Korean-inspired Gochujang sauces.
Don’t think twice, just go for it. Pick up a platter of pretzel bites from our Bakery department and dive straight into the sweet, Bavarian-style 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. Complete this party play in true bootleg style with a six-pack or two of local craft beer — check out your nearest store’s selection.*

Loaded Baked Potato Pizza
Play: Hail Mary
During the most exciting game of the season, there’s too much at stake to fumble at snacks. With the right plan, it’s impossible to fail under pressure, and that’s where the Loaded Baked Potato Pizza comes into play. We’re talking sour cream, cheese, potatoes, bacon and scallions, all on a crispy, chewy crust. Pick up a slice or order a whole pie. Touchdown.
