VIP Snacks for the Big Game

VIP Snacks for the Big Game

Elizabeth Leader Smith

I heard that the Sunday of the big game is the second largest day for food consumption behind Thanksgiving. So why don’t we put as much thought into what we eat during the big game as we do on Thanksgiving?

Depending on where I watch the game, sometimes the entrée changes — tri-tip in California, chili in Ohio and King Casserole in Texas — but some things like snacks remain the same. Those chips, dips and bowls of cereal snack mixes aren’t usually great, but you eat them because they’re there.

It’s time to make the snacks as memorable as the commercials! Whether you’re hosting the watching party or bringing a snack, score big points with delicious options and better-for-you choices. Here are five snacks that can’t lose... Read More

CREAM Gourmet Ice Cream Sandwiches – Elk Grove Location Now Open

CREAM Gourmet Ice Cream Sandwiches – Elk Grove Location Now Open

A new CREAM has come to town! A fellow SacFoodie covered CREAM in Davis, so this new location opening gave me the perfect excuse to try it for myself and see how CREAM Elk Grove measured up!

When I first heard about CREAM and their gourmet ice cream sandwiches, I immediately skimmed through my mental rolodex of ice cream parlors and cookie shops.
