It is officially that time of season where we turn to our national sports obsession of the fall, Football. Both college programs and the NFL are getting back to the grind. That means for a lot of people, either tailgating or hours spent in front of the TV watching their preferred games. Of course, you need your snacks and other provisions. Here we have our list of ways to enjoy Game Day with Black Owned Products.
The most important thing if you’re sitting in front of the TV is the snacks. Crunchy and Salty is often the best. It doesn’t get crunchier than pork rinds aka chicharrones. Recently this once overlooked snack has found a new life and E&T Porky Bites are part of a new generation of the classic snack. Get any one of six great flavors shipped direct to your door. Keep them all to yourself or have some extra to share with company.
Of Course, Chips are the classic snack. Symphony Chips from Georgia offers up chips in three Vegan friendly flavors. Get Original, Smoked, or Balsamic flavors from this company and set up your dual snack bowl.
Now one of the most well known brands is Master P’s Rap Snacks. If you want some more variety in your flavors, then this is your jam. Rap Snacks has everything from Lil Baby’s Honey Cheddar and Sour Cream, to Slutty Vegan Maple BBQ Kettle Chips. If you want to get some flava, then Rap Snacks is your number one choice in chips.
If you’re into popcorn there are plenty of companies listed in our directory One of the best that I’ve tried personally is Flavor Addicts Popcorn. From cheddar to honey bbq and jerk, Flavor Addicts has the savory and sweet flavors that you want. Grab multiple packs of bags or a classic tin and munch away.
What else goes with the game and salty snacks? Beer for many folks. Beale St. Brewing is a black owned brewer that represents Memphis to the fullest. Find your family in Tennessee and get yourself a care package for your game day shenanigans.
The West Coast has a growing brewery scene. Hella Coastal is a brewery team that is focusing on perfecting their craft and growing their business until they get their own brewery. As of right now, they are learning the trade with their collabs with local breweries. Find your West Coast fam or give it a check and see if your state will allow shipment to your door.
Rhythm Brewing Company is representing the East Coast and for Black Women with their brews. Get one of their regular Lager’s, the Red or Blue for your Game Day preparations, and have some on ice for your guests.
Now if you’re like me and you love yourself some buffalo wings, then you need to get yourself some good hot sauce to go with them. One that comes to mind is Creole Flame. They have three different flavors for you to use in your buffalo wing sauce or to go along with your fried fish if you’re really stepping up your tailgate action.
You have some chips you need some dips. Kyvan foods offers not just salsas like you see here, but an entire line of great products for your meals. Hot sauce, barbecue sauce, they’ve got it for you. Grab a variety pack and try it all, set up a tasting station and let everyone pick out their favorite.
Everything Legendary is our Vegan go-to for a few reasons. Number one, it doesn’t include any Soy and is made from real plants. Number two, it can be found in Targets and Safeway stores across the country, making it readily available, even when you realize that your vegan friends are coming by at the last minute. Third, because the owners of the company are always in the street, making sure you know where to find their product.
Just about everyone hates to clean up after the party. Make your life a whole lot easier when you get yourself disposable plates and other paper goods from Circle Terra. One of the best things about this company’s goods is that they are all eco-friendly with the vast majority being bio-degradable. Make this one of your top shopped black owned businesses coming up for this holiday season.
