How to Throw Your Super Bowl Party for Less

This weekend’s Super Bowl party doesn’t have to break the bank! Here’s how to put together the perfect spread for less.

I’d like to thank my friends at ALDI for sponsoring this post.  Thank you for considering shopping at the companies who support Running in a Skirt. As always all opinions are my own.

ALDI Super Bowl Party for Less / Running in a Skirt

Hi guys!

Happy Friday everyone. I had the best time traveling to Charlotte and WCNC yesterday to do another live TV segment. Since the Super Bowl is this Sunday, I used the opportunity to focus on what to make for this huge food holiday. I may not be the biggest fan of the teams in the game this year, but I am all about the food. Did you know that the Super Bowl is second only to Thanksgiving for the amount of food consumed in America? Between the dips, snacks, pizza and drinks… the price of that party can add up fast.

To take the stress out of this weekend, I put together a pretty fabulous spread of easy to make game time snacks from ALDI. And since it came from ALDI you know that you can shop without worrying about high prices.

ALDI has everything you need to prepare for this Sunday’s game including tasty appetizers, snacks, treats and healthy options as well. Plus, you know that by shopping at ALDI you are getting a high quality spread, without the premium price tag. In fact I got ALL the food in this spread for under $85!

Shopping at ALDI is simply the easiest way to save money not just on Super Bowl Sunday, but year round. Every time I shop with them I am shocked at how low my final bill is.

For your party, ALDI has easy packaged items and loads of fresh produce including citrus, broccoli, kale, spinach and all sorts of organic options.

They are constantly expanding their organic product offerings. ALDI is always looking for ways to improve the nutrition in their products so healthy choices are easier to find on a budget.

I shared more tips and details about my spread in my segment! Here it is…

Just in case you are still looking for some recipes to add to your menu, I thought I’d pass along the recipes featured in this segment. I also added a few of my other favorite game day recipes that are made with ingredients you can find at ALDI.

And if you are wondering if ALDI has beverages for your party… they do! ALDI has premium, world class beer like their Binroo Blue Belgian White Ale and Imperium Lager! They also have an extensive award-winning wine collection that lets you stock your bar for significantly less without sacrificing the quality of your drinks.

I even picked up the slow cooker I used in this segment at ALDI for only $19.99. What a price! Plus, you know I can never have too many!  (ALDI finds are only available for a limited time on a first come, first serve basis.)

If you are in the area, ALDI is in the midst of enhancing the shopping experience at its stores in the greater Charlotte-area. With upgrades now complete at 26 stores, ALDI is excited that people who know and love ALDI, plus new fans, get to experience an even better, more welcoming store to shop. Be on the lookout for additional stores to be remodeled this year!  If you aren’t in Charlotte they are doing similar projects across the country!

    I’ve been on a diet and thinking about what to bring to the party that won’t blow it completely. I’m loving all of your suggestions. Please tell me that hazelnut Cannoli Dip is low cal????

    • JulieWunder February 2, 2018 at 5:35 pm - Reply

      It’s more of a treat but lighten it up with reduced fat ricotta and low fat cream cheese! 🙂

    These look great! I wanna try those buffalo chicken meatballs!!

  21. [email protected] February 2, 2018 at 2:56 pm - Reply

    All your snacks sound so tasty. I was going to be boring and just make my traditional buffalo chicken dip, but after seeing these options, I may have to branch out and try something new.

    That dress (or top?) you are wearing is beautiful, Julie. I would love to see you wear it on a future fashion post! That is a lovely shade of blue. Know this is off topic from the Super Bowl, though! Great post.

    I need to go to Aldi this weekend! We bought a ton of fruit over the summer when it was on sale – so now we’re making jam! Enjoy your weekend 🙂

    Everything looks amazing Julie! I agree with Emily–the hazelnut cannoli dip looks and sounds awesome!

  29. Maureen @ Maureen Gets Real February 2, 2018 at 8:00 am - Reply

    The pretzel nibblers with beer cheese sauce and buffalo cauliflower both sound delicious! I’ll have to finalize my menu and make a trip to get the ingredients!

    I LOVE Aldi’s and just found out that they are building one right here in Brevard so I can shop a lot easier! Yay! I have been an Aldi’s fan for over 20 years and love their approach to shopping. The cashiers are always so pleasant. Your spread looks amazing but I must try the spicy spinach artichoke dip. Yum. As for plans -probably just hanging with the hubby.

    That hazelnut cannoli dip looks amazing, what a great spread! Hope you have a fun weekend.
