It comes in four flavors: Grape, Fruit Punch, Orange and Berry Blast.

These are the perfect drinks for those under age guests at your party! They will love them, my girls do!
Scramble is an all natural mix-in of vegetables, herbs and spices, purposely concocted so you can prepare fast and delicious scrambled eggs, omelets, and frittatas. Scramble is available in three colorful, savory flavors: Leafy Greens, Rancheros and Mediterranean. With no more than 60 calories per serving, Scramble contains all-natural ingredients, is gluten-free and does not have any sugar added. These are delicious – my personal favorite way to enjoy them is mixed with Greek yogurt, which makes the perfect party dip! I love them all but if I had to choose a favorite, it would be the Mediterranean!
A lot of prep work goes in to a Super Bowl Party – I know that one thing I usually stress about is the food. But thanks to Ziploc, I no longer have any worries! Not only can I easily prep and store most of the foods I plan to serve like veggies, dips, and dressings – I can also easily stack them in the refrigerator to optimize my available space with Ziploc stackable containers. I plan to have my dips and veggies out in the Ziploc containers for my guests to pick out of as well! Then leftovers can go right back in the fridge for easy accessibility when it comes time to snack on them again! I trust Ziploc with my Super Bowl foods!

With so many options, it’s easy to fumble under the pressure, but with the help of the California Dried Plum Board’s recipes, the snacks are sure to score a touchdown. Dried plums add a sweet kick to a normally savory-filled snack table. While complementing savory dishes, they are also defeat other sides with their high nutrient content.

I cannot wait to show off these recipes at my big party!

Rodenbach’s subtle sour undertones make it a real thirst-quencher. Acclaimed beer connoisseur Michael Jackson calls Rodenbach “the most refreshing beer in the world.” Rodenbach Classic’s characteristic taste is achieved through its unique mixed fermentation process, whereby top yeasts and bacterial flora undergo 24 months of maturation in 150 year old oak casks, resulting in the distinctively gentle sour taste for which it is known and loved.
