Game Day Ideas
No one wants to sit around and watch a football game without plenty of snacks on hand to fuel their energy. With Carolina Pride products, there is no end to the appetizers and finger foods you can provide your game-day guests.
Be sure to practice safe serving—don’t leave foods out for more than 2 hours at a time, and don’t combine new portions of food with those that have been sitting out.
