5 Superbowl Foods to Skip


1. Football Strawberries

We have all seen this and it is guaranteed to produce more Pinterest Fails than success. Why would some spend that amount of time decorating chocolate strawberries?

This is basically the equivalent of making 24 individual 7 layer dips but its hard to actually get to the dip plus, you have to a plate anyways to carry the remainder fo the chips on.

3. Football Icecream Sandwichs 

This is a lot of effort for something that will be very hard to serve. You can't just set it out on the table with the rest of snacks. Plus other than the twenty minutes that went into decorating it, it's still just an ice cream sandwich.

Yes, this will look great all nicely put together, but the logistics of actually eating it are all off. There is way to much cheese to topping ratio, so guests will basically just eat the part that looks nice leaving you with a big blob of cheese.
