Who else shows up for the Big Game just for the snacks?
I know our girls do! They’re still a little young to get excited for football, but they do love delicious snacks. That’s why I came up with this tasty fruit punch and snack platter spread! These fun treats will give everyone a reason to get excited for Game Day, even the kids. Click here to get these products in your cart!
Walmart is here for the assist with everything you need to celebrate the Big Game, as well as the MVPs of plates, cups, napkins and paper towels.
That’s why I made sure to pick up some Vanity Fair® Extra Absorbent Napkins while I was there. They’re suited for even the messiest situations, such as spilled punch! They are part paper towel, part napkin and 100% life-changing. (Trust me, you’re going to fall in love with these napkins!) I also grabbed some Dixie® To Go Cups to make my life a little bit easier and to minimize dishes.
JUST THE FAMILY
This year, it will be just the four of us watching the game and honestly, I am okay with that. Fewer people means fewer dishes and all our favorite foods. 🙂
Below you’ll find the punch recipe, a tutorial for the snack platter and instructions for storing leftovers, since I know gatherings are a lot smaller this year (if you’re having any at all). Even with no party, you can still make it a fun day with special treats.
I hope this makes Game Day a little extra special for your family this year! If you try the punch, don’t forget to take a picture of it and tag me on Instagram.
NOT YOUR AVERAGE FRUIT PUNCH
What makes this fruit punch a little different is a secret ingredient, the MiO® Fruit Punch Liquid Water Enhancer. I love that it gives you all the fruit punch flavor, with zero sugar and calories.
To start, you’ll want to mix the water and MiO® drops together in a large pitcher.
Next, add the pineapple juice, orange juice and lime juice. Mix well and place pitcher in the refrigerator to chill for a couple hours.
When ready to serve, remove pitcher from the refrigerator and add the lemon-lime soda. (You want to do this step last, so that the soda stays fresh and fizzy!)
Stir and top with fresh lime slices, if desired.
To keep it simple and to cut down on dishes, set out a stack of Dixie® To Go Cups. These single-use cups are disposable for convenience, cleanliness and hygiene. They’re a great alternative to using (and washing) real dishes.
Pour this punch over some ice and garnish with lime slices. Enjoy immediately! (Serve this with the Ultimate Snack Platter for an extra special treat.)

THE ULTIMATE SNACK PLATTER
My youngest daughter was so excited for this! She kept watching me take out all the goodies when I was preparing this and couldn’t wait for it to be ready.
This snack platter is super easy, and it’s kid-friendly! My oldest is a very picky eater but even she got excited for these snacks.
The Ultimate Snack Platter includes:
- Bagel Bites® Cheese & Pepperoni Pizza Snacks
- T.G.I Friday’s™ Loaded Bacon & Cheddar Potato Skins
- PLANTERS® Dry Roasted Peanuts
- Cherry tomatoes
- Baby carrots
Heat up the Bagel Bites® and T.G.I Friday’s™ potato skins per package instructions.
While those are cooking, start arranging the fresh veggies and peanuts on a serving tray.
Once the Bagel Bites® and potato skins are done, allow them to cool for five minutes before adding them to the serving tray. Super easy, right?
Enjoy with a cup of some refreshing punch!
