The Best Snacks for a Football Game From Costco

Grabbing snacks before the big game from Costco is just a smart idea. There are Countless reasons to grab these snacks before you watch any sports and you better believe I discuss all of them in this article! 

Below I listed my must have snacks to serve your family during a Football or Soccer game. Stick to this list and everyone will be fed and happy for the whole game! Who knows? You might even begin a new family tradition!

Curious to read my top suggestions for snacks during the big game from Costco? Keep Reading… 


There is something about sports and wings, isn’t there? It’s just one of those snacks that is smart to have while relaxing on a Sunday Afternoon at home while watching your favorite team. 

The wings in the Costco Deli section, though, they will take your game watching to another level! They season them in the store, so they are SUPER fresh and are already marinated by the time you get home. Throw them in the oven to warm them up and get ready for a delicious snack during the big game. 


If you haven’t tried the Italian Style Meatballs from Costco- stop reading and go buy a bag. They are in the frozen section and they are honestly life changing. You can add almost any sort of sauce to them and I can guarantee that they will be the hit of the day! 

You can heat them up in your oven, but I have also used them in an insta-pot or even a crockpot. They are high in protein (for anyone on a keto diet) and taste amazing. 

Another bonus is how many come in a bag! You’ll have enough for viewing your team and for a few more meals throughout the week- yay!

Boom Chicka Popcorn

Okay, I know that you have heard this from me before- but Boom Chicka Pop is the BEST snack ever. When Costco starts selling it, I almost had a heart attack I was so excited (not really, but you get the point). Yes, the bag is huge, but I promise that it will get eaten by the entire family before, during, and after the game. 

They somehow mastered the kettle corn recipe to be sweet and salty in the perfect ratio. It’s so delicious I am drooling just writing about it!

Taylor Farms Vegetable Tray with Ranch Dip

Sometimes the weekends get away from us and we just don’t have time to slice our own vegetables- I get it. This is why I am so grateful for this Vegetable Tray in the Deli section of Costco.

Between the million other things that moms have going on, sometimes its nice to set something like this vegetable tray on the coffee table so the family has a vegetable option while everyone relaxes while you watch the game. 

Rojo’s Black Bean Dip

Yes, of course! I couldn’t create a list of foods to serve your family and friends while watching the big game without including some delicious black bean dip!

This Rojo’s Black Bean Dip at Costco is extremely satisfying- not that I am surprised. The ingredients are fresh and the ratio of beans to seasonings to cheese is ideal. 

My favorite part about this dip? It’s ready to serve so prep time and dishes are a breeze.

Tortellini Pasta Salad

Here is one of my biggest secrets that you must try. When you are at Costco next, head to the deli section of the store and grab the tri-colored tortellini pasta salad.

It comes with fresh mozzarella balls and looks very appetizing. Then, before the big game and you are getting all of the food together, put the pasta salad in a serving bowl. 

Nobody will know that you bought it. They will all think you made it from scratch! This Tortellini Pasta Salad is that good. 

This side is also great to compliment all of the protein that is typically served while watching games. It’s much more carb-heavy than your traditional meatballs or wings. 

Moon Cheese

If you are looking for a fun snack to serve during the next football or soccer game, try out Moon Cheese at Costco! It’s a type of cheddar cheese that has a crunch to it.

The favor is out of this world (pun intended) and it’s great for anyone looking to add more protein into their diet while limiting their carbs. 

My only recommendation for this Moon Cheese is to hide a small bowl of it for yourself in the kitchen- that way you are guaranteed some! From my own experience- this snack disappears well before halftime. 

Lay’s Barbeque Chips

If you have ever been to a costco, you know that they have countless bags of chips. Any flavor, any brand- chances are you can buy a bag that’s bigger than your toddler at your local Costco!

That’s why whenever I have a craving for my favorite chip in the entire world – Lay’s Barbeque Potato Chips- I head to Costco. What can I say they just taste the best? If my family has any chance of eating some while we are watching sports, I have to buy the big Costco bag. 

A bonus is that they pair really well with BBQ wings or even some meatballs with BBQ sauce! 

In Summary

As we head into winter and sports become a greater focal point in our lives, I hope that you consider letting Costco do some of the heavy lifting for you to make watching the big game more enjoyable for everyone.

As you can see above, they have some awesome snack foods that can make watching the game a fun memory for the entire family.
