I have a confession to make. I am obsessed with marketing. I love trying to get inside people’s heads to find out what that trigger is that makes them want to “buy”. Perhaps I should have majored in psychology instead of business and law? The biggest marketing day of the year has to be the biggest “Game Day” of the year where millions of people gather round the television to see who has the best TV commercial.
Some of those commercials make us laugh. Some make us cry and some leave us scratching our heads in disbelief. But whether you tune in to see the pigskin fly or to be entertained in sixty second intervals in between plays, there’s no doubt that you will be watching.
Last year my husband and I headed over to a friend’s house to watch the big game but this year we’ve decided to stay in and watch it…just the two of us. So… here’s a mini version one of those Pinterest worthy Snack Stadiums for two.
GAME DAY SNACK STADIUM FOR TWO
This snack stadium couldn’t have been easier to assemble and if my teenager decides to join us (highly unlikely… I haven’t seen her since she got her driver’s license) there will be enough snacks for three.
Literally everything (save for my wooden dip bowl) was purchased at Walmart. The edibles as well as the stadium building components. You can find it all in one spot.
ASSEMBLY OF YOUR SNACK STADIUM FOR TWO
You aren’t going to need any power tools or crafting supplies to get the nuts and bolts of the stadium base into place. All of these components were found in the kitchen supplies section of Walmart.
(4) Metal Cabinet Spice Racks
(1) Large Serving Bowl
(2) Small Dip Bowls
(2) Chip Bowls
(2) Packs of Football Napkins
(10) Green Plastic Shot Glasses
Arrange the four metal spice rack bleachers as shown below.
Place your dip bowl in the middle of the stands. This will eventually be filled with spinach dip. The dip will be topped with a chiffonade of fresh spinach leaves symbolizing turf.
Next you are going to place a pack of football napkins on alternate corners of your snack stadium. On the other two corners, place your chip bowls and nestle the dip bowls inside.
Place five of your green plastic shot glasses in the lower level of the stands on either side of the stadium.
Now it’s time to fill your stadium with snacks.
Your dip is going to go in your main serving vessel. Top it off with fresh spinach. TOSTITOS® Scoops will go on the upper row of the bleachers. They’re easily stackable and best for dipping.
You’re also going to put TOSTITOS® Scoops into your green chip bowls on either corner of your stadium for two and fill your mini green dip bowls with TOSTITOS® Chunky Salsa. This makes for a quick grab and go option.
Your Pepsi™ 12 oz. 12 pack cans are going in both of the end zone areas.
Now that we have the savory nibbles added it’s time to think about the sweets. This is going to be a long game after all and we need to cover all of our bases.
Take each of your ten green plastic shot glasses and dip them into your Skittles® XL 41 oz. bag. Once they are filled, place them on the middle row of your stadium bleachers.
The top row of bleachers is reserved for the chocolate. I picked out three different types of candy bars from my SNICKERS® FUN SIZE® Variety 35 oz. bag and alternated them so we had options.
How simple was that?
