Are you ready for some Football?? I’ve mentioned before that I’m not as big of a football fan as I used to be. I enjoy watching the end of a great game (and Friday Night Lights, of course), but these days I find it hard to dedicate that much time to when there are so many other things that need done. That being said, I do enjoy the food that comes along with game day snacking!
My friends at Orville Redenbacher gave me a challenge to create a football themed gift basket to commemorate the start of football season and the new line of Orville Redenbacher’s Flavor Variety microwave popcorn. Of their three new varieties (White Cheddar, Extra Cheese and Sea Salt & Vinegar) I decided to build my basket with the Sea Salt & Vinegar variety in mind. We are big popcorn eaters at our house and loved the fact that with Orville Redenbacher’s new flavor variety, the flavor comes in a separate pouch. You can actually choose how much flavor you want based on your own individual tastes.
I created this basket with some friends in mind who live in the town I went to college at. They are constantly having people come in and stay over for football games. I thought it would be fun to add to their K-State paraphernalia and made the ultimate game day basket for them.
We all know game day isn’t really game day without delicious snacks on hand. 3 packages of Orville Redenbacher’s Sea Salt & Vinegar popcorn was a must.
Also included in the basket is:
- 1 K-State tote
- 2 K-State tumblers with lids and straws
- 1 K-State party banner, perfect at home or tailgaiting
- 1 K-State Sweatshirt Blanket…football weather is crisp and this comfy blanket is sure to keep our friends warm!
- 1 package of K-State cocktail napkins
- 1 K-State Pen and a K-State notepad (for taking down drink orders, gameday scores or friends orders for popcorn!)
- 1 K-State bottle opener
- 4 purple and silver pom-pom’s (It’s important to cheer on with style!)
- 1 K-State cookie cutter and some Wildcat logo decorated cookies
- 1 $10 iTunes gift card to download your favorite game day apps
- 1 football… there’s something about watching football that makes you want to toss a ball around
- 2 popcorn bowls
- 1 bowl with a lid and small spoon – for sprinkling the perfect amount of Orville Redenbacher flavoring on their popcorn
