Game Time Snack Menu #TogetherforGameTime #ad

When having a crowd over to watch a game, I always look for simple snacks that everyone will enjoy.  I also love a good “theme” so this year I chose my favorite cracker….Ritz Crackers and my favorite drink…Coca-Cola!  Throw in one stop shopping at Walmart and any party can be easy and affordable. 

The Ritz Cracker possibilities are practically endless!  They can be dipped in your favorite dip, topped with just about anything, sprinkled as a topping on casseroles, or even turned into dessert.  Seriously, is there anything you CAN’T do with a Ritz?
