Get into the (berry) Red Zone!
Certain foods have been enjoying the status of Big-Game-Party royalty pretty much since there was a Big Game to celebrate. There’s King Chip, Queen Dip, the Duke and Duchess of Guacamole. And what do a lot of these hallowed snacks have in common? They’re hmmm-mmm-mmm savory. Sweets have their place, but save the odd cupcake festooned with astroturf-hued frosting, they don’t seem to play a major role in cheering on your favorite team (or your second favorite…or third…sigh—why did my guys have to fall apart right at the end??).
You may think berries have no place in the snacktastic world of football-prom night, but here at Well•Pict, we beg to differ. Not only are there a myriad of amazing savory recipes featuring our favorite bright red and sunset-pink beauties, many of them give just the right pop of mildly tart sweetness to balance out the heavier ingredients. Don’t believe us? Test out one or two (or, who are we kidding?—all) of these recipes, and we’re pretty certain at least a few of them will take center stage (centerfield? Oops—wrong sport!) on your football and goalpost-shaped snack trays.
