Game Day Snack: Cheez-it Bayou Blitz Mix

The big game is on Sunday... even though I'm not excited about the teams that made it this year, I'm all for using it as an excuse to nibble on some great munchies and watch funny commercials (hopefully!).

I love a mix of snacks when it comes to game day munchies... hot and cold appetizers to grab and nibble as the game plays on and hanging with friends is a great time to bring out something new to try.

Kellogg's has teamed up with former NFL running back LaDainian Tomlinson and his wife Torsha to come up with some new game day snacks which they share on the Snackpicks website.  A great mix of savory to sweet to add to your spread on Sunday.


  • Cheez-It Bayou Blitz Mix
  • Gridiron Party Pizzas
  • Roasted Red Pepper Dip
  • Rice Krispies Treats Footballs
  • Fudge Shoppe Fudge Stripes Layered Bars


  • I made the Cheez-It Bayou Blitz Mix but made a few modifications - that's what I love about snack mixes like this, they work well with different add-ins based on what you and your family prefer.

    A fun and crunchy mix of Crispix cereal, Cheez-its and almonds... all tossed with some seasonings and melted butter.  Doesn't get easier than this!  You can even make it ahead of time to keep things easy on Sunday!

    I let the family try it out last weekend, and it's a nibble you can't stop grabbing!  So, if you don't want to eat the whole bowl yourself, make it on Sunday and share with friends while you watch the big game!

    LaDainian and Torsha are also sharing some tips to make planning what you'll make for the big day - check out there tips:


    •  Advance the ball: As guests arrive, start with dry mixes to prime their beverage selection. Move on to refrigerated dips when all "players" are on the field - this way the dip doesn't sit out too long and everyone gets their fair share.
    • Go no-huddle: Set up the beverages along the sidelines of the room to avoid a buildup around the drink cooler.
    • Prevent pile-ups: Divvy up each appetizer on the line of scrimmage with several separate bowls and place them in different areas around the house.
    • Keep a clear field: Place messier dips over hardwood floors and easy-to-clean areas to avoid dripping on the carpets and couches – a major penalty.
    • Call audibles: As quarterback of the party, don’t be afraid to switch up your strategy on game day to keep the partygoers happy.


    Doesn't get easier than that!
