So last weekend was the big game day and as food bloggers, we naturally love to have a party centered around EATING, right?! I have to admit this was my first time throwing a large party for a group of people. Being a busy working dad, I really love convenience of CVS without breaking the bank. CVS is one of my go-to stores, so naturally while picking up my prescriptions, I grabbed lots of supplies for the party this past weekend! Green wrapping paper to line the table to make it look like a football field and the ribbon for both teams! I grabbed a few sodas and other supplies and headed quickly next door to the party store for some stickers, football plates and other simple decorations to really finish off the party.
CVS was kind enough to send a bunch of Gold Emblem products for us to try at the party as well, to many to list. On top of that they sent gift baskets for all the guests (which I might add were a HUGE hit!). So let me touch on how impressed we were with the Gold Emblem products from CVS. The sea salt carmels, the cheddar popcorn, the nuts, the juice, this is a GOOD brand of products. CVS cares about quality and it really shines with this brand.
Throwing a party was a bigger challenge then I had initially anticipated. Finger foods of course were a must (thanks CVS), but we made a few things. Deviled eggs, guacamole dip, and the four ingredient cashew ice cream bread. Holy cow the ice cream bread was it good! The Gold Emblem cashews were delicious and provided the bread with little crunch that really set it off. (Recipe is coming!!)
My 4 year old wouldn’t stop eating the cookies, so we started rationing! If you’re looking for a good line of products, seriously, check out the Gold Emblem brand. You won’t believe what kinds of products they have available. From snack items to everyday cooking items CVS is stocked and convenient! That’s why I love it so much, one stop shop for busy parents!
Thanks CVS for helping us have a wonderful game day! I truly believe in good products and a good brand and CVS is both. Again in full disclosure, CVS did supply us with the majority of the products featured in this post and we were compensated, but I believe in this brand, I shop there regularly and all of the opinions were my own! I’m a busy dad and CVS is my go-to store.
(And thanks for really making a wise decision with the cigarette thing….kudos!)
