Are you gearing up for game-day?! Whether you’re tailgating before the big game, cheering on your favorite team from the stands or having some friends over to watch on the big screen, at Festival, we’ve got you covered with better-for- you snacks that everyone will love! (CLICK HERE to see how Festival’s Dietitians tailgate at Lambeau Field!) One of my absolute favorite football snacks is In-Shell Wonderful® Pistachios. In-shell pistachios are an activity-type snack that requires a little work to get at the actual nut. This helps to slow down snacking, so you’ll be less likely to eat too many. These naturally crunchy and delicious nuts are packed with filling fiber and protein. Trade-up your typical snack with this week’s pick! What is YOUR favorite game-day snack? Leave a comment below, and you will be entered to win a coupon for a FREE 8 oz. bag of Wonderful® Pistachios to bring to your next football celebration!
