Eight Gourmet Goodies to Upgrade Your Super Bowl Snacks

It’s almost Super Bowl season—aka the time when snacks shine. In between cheering on your team, celebrating touchdowns, and disputing with the referee (what does he know, anyway?), you need Super Bowl snacks to keep you fueled. And we’re not talking about the packets of dip or buckets of wings that appear at other game day gatherings. Treat the Super Bowl like the super event that it is with the good stuff: We’re talking small-batch dips made with North Carolina sausage, jumbo Virginia peanuts, Charleston-made kettle chips, chicharrones in all the flavors, and more. 

With at least three hours to dedicate to the game, you have an ample window where Super Bowl snacks can substitute for a full dinner, spanning hors d’oeuvres to dessert. From crunchy to creamy and salty to sweet, here are the Super Bowl snacks to power your 2023 viewing party.

Sister's Sauce Bloody Mary Mix

Sister’s Sauce Bloody Mary Mix

First rule of any good host: Make sure your guest has a drink in hand. Instead of making numerous drinks for everyone, relieve yourself of bartending duties by setting up a bloody mary station complete with all the garnishes and let guests serve themselves. The Sister’s Sauce bloody mary mix is simultaneously smooth, richly flavored, and balanced in its spices and acidity levels, so it can anchor any out-of-the-box garnishes you fancy.

Virginia Diner Zatarain's Cajun Peanuts

Virginia Diner Peanuts

These paprika-and-garlic-seasoned goobers in Zatarain's Spicy Cajun Virginia Peanuts complement the bloody mary’s spiced elements and require zero advance preparation. Set them out as soon as guests arrive so they can munch while they mix their drinks. 

Lowcountry Kettle Chips sea salt flavored

Lowcountry Kettle Chips

Chips and dip are one of the quintessential Super Bowl snacks. Amp up the flavor with Lowcountry Kettle Chips, known for their wafer-thin cut and crisp, crackling consistency. Pick flavors that stand alone, like Spicy Pimento Cheese or State Fair Fried Pickle or load the sea salt-flavored ones as a crunchy vehicle for dips.

Sobremesa 10 ounce of Salsa Verde

Sobremesa Salsa

Looking for something to dip all those chips into? Go for the zippy salsa verde from Charleston-based Sobremesa Mole & Salsas, a chef-driven creation inspired by the owner’s childhood in El Paso, Texas.

Three pack of Big Delicious Dips for your Super Bowl Snacks

Big Delicious Dips

Round out salsa with something a little meatier—Big Delicious Dips were made for game day parties. These creamy, heat-and-eat dips are made with ingredients inspired by North Carolina’s hog country. Try flavors like the Hot 'Cue (think, pulled-pork barbecue in spoonable form) or the Carolina Sausage Dip made with green chiles, onions, tomatoes, and North Carolina sausage.

 

Bag of Hogs Heaven Salt n' Vinegar Chicharrones

Hogs Heaven Chicharrones 

If you really want to ham up your Super Bowl snacks (forgive the pun), experiment by using puffed, airy pork rinds as a scoops for the Big Delicious Hot ‘Cue dip, Sobremesa salsa, seven-layer dips, or enjoy as is. Made in Georgia, these shatteringly crunchy chicharrones come in flavors like tangy Salt and Vinegar, Mesquite Sweet & Mild BBQ, and Extreme Hot

Wisham Jellies Mango Pepper Jelly

Wisham Jellies

The other essential element to the Super Bowl snack spreads? Saucy, messy chicken wings. Whether you prefer your wings roasted in the oven or charred on the grill, Wisham Jellies pepper-based jellies are meant to take the heat. Design specifically to pair with grilled meats and proteins, these sweet jellies shine with a savory pairing. Try glazing chicken wings with the blackberry pepper or mango pepper jellies. 

Hubs Peanuts Gift Pack; 2 20-ounce containers of salted and chocolate covered peanuts

Hubs Peanuts

As you head into the final quarter, let your Super Bowl snacks switch from sweet to savory. Hubs’ premium Virginia peanuts include chocolate-coated nuts as well as chewy peanut brittle that make for a standout dessert all on their own. Stock extra for whomever’s team loses—they help soften the disappointment.
