Pro Running Back LaDainian Tomlinson Teams with Kellogg to Help Football Fans Throw a Pro-Style Big Game Party
BATTLE CREEK, Mich., Jan. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — When it comes to entertaining for football’s biggest game, it’s easy to tell the rookies from the pros. To help families score extra points for their Big Game bashes, Kellogg has partnered with pro running back LaDainian Tomlinson to share proven party planning plays and favorite snacks to celebrate the big day.
Tomlinson, known for his play on the field by fans, is also known for his party planning skills off the field by his family and friends. He recommends getting the whole family involved in game day prep and choosing all-star ingredients to ensure a successful party. In fact, this pro – who started his career as a linebacker before blossoming on the offensive side of the game – says sacking boring snacks and stocking up on crowd pleasers like Cheez-It® crackers, Town House® Flipside® crackers, Keebler® cookies and Rice Krispies Treats® is one of the top plays from his play book.
“Planning a game day party can be just as hard as preparing for an opposing defense,” said Tomlinson. “But with a smart game-day strategy with great recipes and the right snacks, you can plan a great party that puts a smile on everybody’s face.”
The football great has created a series of helpful videos demonstrating some of his top tips which will be available for viewing at SnackPicks.com. Additionally, he’s sharing some of his go-to recipes, including Cheez-It Spicy Touchdown Tenders, which are always a huge hit with kids in the crowd, and Chile Con Carne or Cheez-it Game Day Guacamole Spread, which appeals to adult tastes, too. Also, Tomlinson says that no party is complete without a mix of salty and sweet snacks, which is why he always makes sure there are Keebler cookies and Rice Krispies Treats set out for guests alongside a bowl of Big Game Snack Mix with Cheez-It crackers and Townhouse Flipsides crackers.
