Football season is HERE! Whether you're a die-hard football fan or not so much, we can all agree on the importance of mouthwatering eats and thirst-quenching drinks at every game. At Festival Foods, we live and breathe football food. In fact, we are the Grocery and Tailgating Headquarters of the Green Bay Packers. Festival dietitian, Lauren, and Perishables Specialist, Cindy, highlight some of our new game day items and longtime football favorites on WFRV's Local 5 Live show, along with an easy recipe that you will definitely want to add to your tailgating repertoire.
