Only 65 Days To The BIG GAME!

Make sure you have these Tailgate must-haves on the shelves by February 1

There are only 65 days until “The Big Game” kicks off at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif. (we’d have called it what it is, but that would have landed us a cease-and-desist letter from Uncle Roger, and we don’t want one of those!).

With the clock ticking away until all of America gathers around their televisions, we wanted to take a minute to remind you that we have an array of products that round out any Super Tailgate menu – from chili to chowder and appetizers that guests will remember all year, here are a few ideas retails must have on their shelves by February 1st, when party hosts will begin their shopping:

Club Packs:

  • Blount Turkey Chili with Beans – This delicious chili loaded with ground turkey and black beans simmered in a rich, chunky tomato sauce is also certified gluten-free. Retail package contains two 20-ounce microwavable cups.
  • Blount Organics Vegetarian Chili – A blend of lentils, chickpeas and black beans are simmered in a rich stock with hearty vegetables and traditional chili spices.  Retail package contains two 24 ounce microwavable cups.
  • Legal Sea Foods New England Clam Chowder – This award-winning recipe is full of tender Cape Cod clams, cream and herbs.
