Speaking of sweets, why not try a little something different this year for dessert? Everyone loves an ice cream bar, especially when you set out flavors like Churros Con Leche and Toasted Coconut Almond Chip. McConnell’s does it right by pasteurizing and aging their own raw, Central Coast, grass-fed milk and cream and making the goodies that go into their fine ice creams.

Planning a Super Bowl bash got us thinking: whatever happened to party favors? Those little bags of happiness placed in your hand as you leave a gathering keep the fun going a little while longer, especially when it’s something you can eat. The New Primal’s Meat Sticks are reminiscent of the gas station favorite but without all the nasty stuff. Instead, they’re made with grass-fed beef and free-range turkey with zero hormones added. Buy a sampling of all the flavors and give a few to each guest for the best party favor ever.
