Better-for-You Sweet & Salty Snack Spread for the Big Game

Who’s excited for Superbowl Weekend?! Let’s be honest, I’m just looking forward to the game day snacks to be had, and the halftime commercials. If you’re like me and are putting your snack face on this weekend, then I have a snack spread that will feed the hungriest of crowds, and will satisfy a myriad of palettes. 

Even better? It’s not so unhealthy. Shh, don’t tell your guests!

Because popchips are a better-for-you option over some other snacks, I thought it would be fun to put a better-for-you healthy Superbowl Snack spread together for the big game. If you’re like me, then your friends and family have allergies and dietary restrictions that can sometimes put a damper on parties. A few simple swaps from traditional homegating food are all it takes to make sure everyone can have something to snack on!

popchips and Dips

When it comes to snacking, one of my go-to snacks around the house is popchips snacks. They’ve recently introduced popchips ridges, and now you can distinguish them by their new “bold & crunchy” ridges packaging. With three game day ready flavors of buffalo ranch, tangy barbecue, and cheddar & sour cream, you’ll want to add these to your snack table for the Superbowl!

  • Buffalo Ranch Ridges give you the taste of Buffalo Wings without the mess. Your taste buds will be tingling! Substitute these for messy wings in your snack spread. For even more ranchy-flavor, pair these with a ranch dip!
  • Cheddar & Sour Cream Ridges combine the flavors of sharp cheddar, smooth sour cream, and potatoes. Watch out, these are addictive, and you might eat the whole bag if you’re not careful! ;)
  • Tangy Barbeque Ridges are sweet and smoky with a touch of spice. While they’re not fresh off the grill, you might think they are! Even better? No mess or moist towelette required. 

With ten other flavor options, there’s a popchips Ridges option that’s perfect for your party. The ridges are great for picking up dips, and all flavors of popchips are never fried, contain only real ingredients, and are naturally gluten-free. You can find popchips at your local grocery store, or online at amazon.com/popchips!

Meat, Cheese and Fruit Platter

When it comes to snacking, I love to have a board or platter available with things that are both snackable and somewhat filling. A combination of meat, nuts, fruit, and cheeses is a crowd pleaser! Here are some of my favorite things to include as part of a healthy Superbowl snacks spread.

Meats:

  • Salami
  • Ham
  • Turkey
  • Proscuitto
  • Chicken Sausages
  • Hard-boiled eggs

Cheeses:

  • Cheddar
  • Colby
  • Pepper Jack
  • Swiss
  • Goat (Dairy-free)

  • Feta (Dairy-free)

Fruits:

  • Grapes
  • Strawberries
  • Berries
  • Tomatoes
  • Kiwi
  • Apples
  • Dried fruits like cherries, apricots, figs
  • Banana chips

Feel free to mix and match the suggestions above depending on your guests’ allergies and dietary needs to create your perfect platter!

Veggie Tray

I love putting together healthy snack options, but honestly, it can be time-consuming! All that slicing and dicing can be exhausting. My party hack? Buy a pre-made tray at the grocery store and then add on to it. I buy the organic veggie trays at my local grocery store and add a few additions to make it my own.

Here are some of my favorite veggies to snack and dip:

  • Cucumbers
  • Grape tomatoes
  • Celery sticks
  • Baby carrots
  • Sliced bell peppers
  • Broccoli
  • Cauliflower

Sweet and Salty Snacks

A snack spread wouldn’t be complete without a few extra goodies to snack on! A handful of something sweet and something salty is kind of the best if you ask me. Here are some sweet and salty snacks that will satisfy without being too unhealthy.

Sweet snacks:

  • Yogurt raisins or pretzels
  • Chocolate Almonds
  • Trail mix
  • Dried fruits
  • Banana chips
  • Freeze dried fruit
  • Candied pecans or walnuts

Salty snacks:

  • Marcona almonds
  • Pistachios
  • Cashews
  • Peanuts
  • Olives
  • Walnuts

Of course, the Superbowl snack options don’t end there, but these are some crowd favorites that I buy again and again. I hope these suggestions have been helpful or given you a little snack-spiration in time for the big game. Best of all, you won’t have to undo any of your New Years Resolutions with these balanced snack options!
