On February 12, there is a pretty significant sporting event that football fans may be eager to watch. In addition, even if you aren’t particularly interested in the game, you might be looking forward to the imaginative commercials that are always interspersed between plays.
In the meantime, you might be hosting friends for the big game. Or perhaps you want to host a more intimate family gathering at home. In either case, if you stock up on these fantastic finds from Costco, you can throw a great party without breaking the bank.
1. Rojo’s Street Corn Dip If you’re having a party to watch the big game,
you’ll probably want to serve chips and dip to everyone. Even though you could make the standard salsa, this corn dip might be a nice and refreshing alternative to the usual dip lineup. Costco offers two-pound containers, so there is plenty for everyone.
2. Party Tray for Bistro Pretzel Bites Why stick with chips and dip when you can up the ante with soft pretzels and dip?
This tray has pretzel bites and a variety of dips, including mustard and cheese sauce, and weighs more than two pounds. It’s possible that your guests will be so full that you won’t need to order pizza.
3. Supreme Pizza from Tuscan Kitchen Who are we kidding?
Without pizza, it wouldn’t be a party at all. You could also order pizza from a nearby restaurant, but you might have to wait for it because of the likely increase in demand that night. Instead, with this Costco find, you can get almost three pounds of pizza to heat up in the oven when the time is right. Not only will you be able to provide your guests with something filling, but you will also probably end up spending much less on your credit card than if you ordered pizza delivered.
4. Tostitos Scoops When hosting a party, regular chips are insufficient.
To take in all of that delicious dip you’ll be serving, you’ll need chips with special curves. At Costco, you can buy two bags of Tostitos Scoops, each weighing 1.38 pounds, if you’re having more people over. You should be able to watch multiple hours of television with that.
5. For your game day party, you could purchase a variety of dips from Daisy Pure & Natural Sour Cream.
Alternately, you could experiment and develop your own. In either case, sour cream makes a good base, and Costco sells Daisy Pure & Natural for a reasonable price in a three-pound tub if you don’t want to spend a lot of money. Pro tip: You can get started right away by purchasing onion soup mix and combining it with sour cream.)
If you like football, you probably are counting down the days until February 12. Your game day gathering could reach new heights with the help of these Costco products.
Also keep in mind that while some of these items may only be available during certain times of the year, others, like Daisy sour cream and Tostitos Scoops, are typically available at Costco throughout the entire year. Therefore, if you decide to throw a second party, such as to mark the start of baseball season, you can almost certainly count on Costco to provide you with food that is appropriate.
