When it comes time for a major sporting event, such as the Super Bowl, it also comes time for Super Bowl parties and the like. Such a party tends to have a buffet of processed junk food for snacks, and, while there’s nothing wrong with that occasionally, it leaves something to be desired. Luckily, we can do better, and it’s not as hard as you think.

When you think of sports related gatherings and the junk food that comes with it, you think of potato chips, that most classic of fried snacks. As hard as they are to resist, potato chips can easily be topped by another fried potato, the potato wedge. These cousins of the potato chip and french fries are easier and inexpensive to make and bring a touch of class to your next party. All you’ll need are some potatoes, obviously, some oil, preferably olive oil, and your choice of seasoning, before you stick them in the oven.

Another excellent idea for a party time snack is the simple combination of crackers and cheese. This time-honored treat is sure to satisfy, regardless of what kind of cracker you pair with what kind of cheese. You could also add condiments, such as dijon mustard to spice up this snack. Another, healthier alternative is the vegetable platter. An assortment of veggies with some ranch dressing takes the basic components of a salad and turns it into a delectable finger food. What’s not to love?

There are many, many more options like these to enhance, and not later regret, your party spread, so keep your eyes and your mind open to new ideas. Then, once Super Bowl Sunday rolls around, you can impress your friends with these great snack ideas. Just don’t forget to enhance your collection of sports memorabilia, too. Fanatics can take care of all your sports memorabilia needs and save you some money in the process so you can have the best Super Bowl Sunday possible.
