February 1, 2019 – To many, sporting events and unhealthy eating are inseparable. It doesn’t have to be that way, though! The team at District Ventures has curated a list of easy-to-make healthy Super Bowl snacks from our accelerator program that will turn this weekend’s sporting spectacle into a food fest. Whether your guests are cheering for the New England Patriots or the Los Angeles Rams, you’ll be the true GOAT by including these in your Super Bowl food spread.
Add some kick to your wings with Bow Valley BBQ
It goes without saying, but you can’t have a Super Bowl party without wings. You’ll have guests reaching back for seconds, thirds and fourths by creating yours with Bow Valley BBQ’s Winged Buffalo Hot Sauce. This is a full-bodied sauce that goes deeper than just heat with hickory smoke and an array of spices. Having won multiple awards for flavour and heat, including first place in the International Flavour Awards in Wisconsin, you’ll definitely want to taste what all the hype is about.

Sweeten up your popcorn with Drizzle Honey
Say goodbye to microwave popcorn and hello to sweet homemade popcorn with Drizzle Honey. This recipe combines the luxurious raw taste of Drizzle’s Golden Raw Honey with salt and brown butter to deliver a sure-fire crowd pleaser. Drizzle Honey delivers more minerals, enzymes and nutrients than your traditional teddy bear honey, all while supporting sustainable beekeeping. If that’s not a sweet deal, we’re not sure what is!

Elevate your chips and dip with Spread’Em Kitchen
Take your standard chips and dip to a whole new flavour level with Cohort IV member Spread’Em Kitchen. Their variety of spreads and dips made with cashews as a base and bold flavours like turmeric, beet and cilantro will have your guests double dipping (gross, yes, but flattering). Get their recipe for a Mushroom and Carrot Toasty here, a snack that not only tastes delicious but is high in vitamin A, vitamin B, iron and copper!
Satisfy your chocolate craving with Little Tucker
Little Tucker’s Snickaroo Squares are the perfect reward for when you reach half time. Filled with nut butter, dates and wrapped in raw chocolate, this guilt-free treat will satisfy any sweet tooth. The ingredients will keep you energized for the second half, while not denting your diet! Find out where you can pick some up here.
Add some bold flavour to your nachos with Culcherd
Cheese is always guaranteed to please! Try something new with your nachos this year by topping them with Culcherd – a fermented, plant-based, dairy alternative to cheese that puts flavour first. Shred some Sriracha Jalapeno Cheeze over your nachos, while getting an added health kick from the probiotics from the fermentation. Top them off with Bow Valley BBQ’s Sweet Chili Corn Salsa for an explosion of flavour. Get inspired by their recipe here.
Swap your pigs in a blanket for a Torill’s Table waffle dog
Change up your traditional pigs in a blanket this Super Bowl by wrapping them in Torill’s Table’s Waffle and Pancake Mix. Their light and fluffy base will add a whole new flavour profile to your sausages while helping you reach your target whole grain intake. Is this a sweet appetizer or a savoury dessert? You be the judge! Get their inspiration here or find out where you can pick up your mix in time for the weekend.
