#ad Game Day Snacks & Tyson #SuperMoments #cbias

Although Daddy and his kids can get pretty silly about their Football food, there's one thing they're serious about: it's important to have good snacks for the Big Game. In fact, they actually have some pretty unique food traditions for game day. For instance, it's the only time of year we eat marshmallow circus peanuts!

Since game day is coming up, we threw a little sampling party ahead of time to get a good idea about what kinds of snacks we'll want to serve. Daddy and the kids always root for the underdog---that is, unless their favorite Minnesota team is playing! We went with our favorite team's colors for decorations and a couple of our favorite brands for snacks.

When I was shopping at Walmart earlier in the week, I picked up two varieties of Tyson Any'tizers: Chicken Fries and Popcorn Chicken. Next time you're in Walmart, make sure to check for the special messaging on one of the freezer endcaps. Selected Tyson Any'tizers will be on rollback for $5.98 for a limited time. 

 I also wanted to try out the lineup of Kraft dipping sauces I'd been looking at lately. I was hoping for a bbq version, as that's what Jamie loves best with chicken.

 Luckily, I found one hiding behind these little dressing bottles! Kraft BBQ Ranch---perfect! When you go to pick up yours, be sure to check for a tag on the bottleneck and a special playbook. These will be available for a limited time on participating products.

Tyson Any'tizers are easy and tasty for a quick game day snack. Our family loves their many chicken snack varieties. It's getting to the point where I'm having to come up with some pretty smooth strategies to make sure I can score a couple bites when Tyson's in the house. Sometimes I ignore strategy all together and just fight the kids for some.

I'm a pretty strict, no-nonsense Mom, but when Daddy's home, all bets are off. He's been known to encourage the kids to play with their food...

...and he's usually right there at the center of it all.

I love Tyson brand chicken snacks because the meat inside is so tender and fresh tasting. There's a big difference in biting into a Tyson Popcorn Chicken piece verses a fast food nugget. See---it really is chicken! No penalties for mystery meat here!

After the obnoxious chicken and sauce football game outside, the boys were still in the mood for some play time. Michael and Elisha were sure that big brothers would prevail, but Liam definitely made the interception!

Once I finally tackled the challenge of getting the chicken bags back from these football fans, it was time to cook up our dinner. I like using this large stoneware bar pan to cook all the chicken and fries at once. I can load it up and bake it all at 400ยบ for about 30 minutes and it comes out great!

This shot right here is the ultimate testimony to quality chicken snacks. Kynthia has meat in her mouth and her plate is almost empty. Notice the abundance of food on the other kids' plates? Yeah, Kynthia's the Queen of the False Start! No penalties for her either though---she's way too cute!

Although these two players' uniforms would suggest they're on opposing teams, they definitely agreed that the BBQ Ranch was an excellent match for the chicken snacks.

Jamie thought so too as he scored a tasty touchdown with this chunk of popcorn chicken.

With 11 of us in the family, it can sometimes take some serious strategizing to score a bite to eat around here. But when it comes right down to it, family, food, and fun always equal a total win!

 Speaking of wins, I think we've found a perfect new game day snack tradition! Hmm...I wonder how marshmallow circus peanuts taste with BBQ Ranch sauce?
