The Super Bowl is right around the corner, and although it may be one of the largest sporting events of the year, it is also one of the largest snacking events of the year. With National Convenience Distributors, super snacking means super savings.

On February 12 at 6:30pm, nearly 115 million people across America will gather in front of the tv to tune into the Super Bowl. For every tv, there is an even greater cornucopia of finger foods, and thus, endless opportunity for convenience stores – after all, only real fans know that the Super Bowl is only as good as the snacks.

Here’s how convenience stores can gear up for the big game with bestselling snacks from General Mills.

Chex Mix MAX’D Buffalo Ranch

As the perfect addition to any Super Bowl party, Chex Mix MAX’D Buffalo Ranch features hot sauce, cayenne pepper, garlic and onion expertly blended with cool sour cream and buttermilk.

This surefire Super Bowl snack stands out, so be sure to highlight your chip offerings to prepare for the last-minute rush of partygoers.

Bugles Chili Cheese

Bugles Chili Cheese

If it’s not wings, it’s chili. Warm and hearty, chili is a winter staple, and as a result, it has grown to be a favorite Super Bowl item. Nonetheless, not everyone enjoys meat and beans. Bugles Chili Cheese allows those classic, spicy flavors to be enjoyed in a new form by everyone, no matter their dietary needs.

This cheesy, smoky, corn-powered crowd pleaser pairs well with the popular fare of Super Bowl parties and is ready to join your all-star snack lineup.

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Muddy Buddies

By the time the fourth quarter rolls around, the salty snack bowls will have dried up and the tension will be rising. Everyone will be looking for that small, sweet treat to pick on and Chex Peanut Butter and Chocolate Muddy Buddies are the MVP of all Super Bowl snacks. Rich coco and savory peanut butter combine to form a new level of snack indulgence.

Muddy Buddies, particularly the peanut butter and chocolate variety, have been a quintessential party snack since the 1960’s. More commonly known as puppy chow, learning how to prepare Muddy Buddies was a rite of passage for many, as families often handed down recipes and children were taught in their home economics classes. Timeless enough to be a favorite of all ages, General Mills’ Muddy Buddies creates an element of nostalgia and fun on gameday.

As the most-watched sporting event in the country fast-approaches, supersize your savings by stocking up on snacks that are fit for the occasion!
