Kick off to game day


When we're not gathering around the table for a family dinner, there's a chance we're gathering around the TV. With the biggest football game of year set to kick off in the coming days, your family and friends will be glued to the TV, much like ours. That's why this year we're bringing the American tailgate party to your home but with a gourmet twist. 

Where do you start?
First things first, figure out your type of game day entertaining style. 

Go healthy
Keep those New Year's resolutions going for you and your guests with a selection of entrées and snacks that won't be a step back in the wrong direction. Celebrate with Neal Brothers' Organic Blue Tortilla Chips with Flax Seeds, and their lively and sugar-free Organic Salsa, plus Snacks 101 Smokey Chipotle Popcorn.

Keep it classic
Bring the tailgate party home with the Tailgate Combo from our catering team. Packed with smoked St. Louis ribs, spicy dry rub chicken wings, Texas BBQ pulled beef brisket and sides; your guests won't want to leave. Add Neal Brothers' White Tortilla Chips, Mad Mexican Salsa Verde and their full flavoured Guacamole Mix. Finish off with a bag or two of Spudnicks Kool Ketchup Chips for a game day throwback.

Add a gourmet twist
Elevate your hosting fare with a selection of must-have eats starting with the delicious Pusateri's Chili Kit to make a delectable bowl of chilli at home - which includes fresh cornbread for extra flair. Elevate your snack options with the Neal Brothers' Organic Blue Tortilla chips, and the Mexican-style chopped tomato salsa from Mad Mexican Pico de Gallo Salsa. Top it off with Delhi-licious kettle chips from the Neal Brothers' and celebrity chef Vikram Vij - the blend of mango and spices will leave guests wanting more.

Go modern
Take a step forward with a dash of refinement. Have a bowl of Neal Brothers' Ancient Grain Tortilla Chips out paired with their natural tomatillo salsa. Tomatillos are a very small and green tomato-like fruit with full tangy flavour. Finish off with the Neal Brothers' Pink Salt and Vinegar Kettle Chips, seasoned with dense sea salt that has less sodium than traditional kettle chips - you might have to buy more than just one bag.

Drinks and desserts
Besides your typical tailgating beer, there are plenty of options to elevate your liquid libations. Our picks include the line of San Pellegrino sodas. With flavours like Limonata (lemon), Clementina (clementine), Pompelmo (grapefruit) there are plenty of flavours to keep everyone satisfied. But don't stop there, give them a treat, like a football decorated cakes and cookies from Phipps or our specially decorated dipped strawberries in the shape of footballs.

With our catering team on call, and our selection of game day-ready eats available in-store, your celebrations are ready for a great kick-off.
