When you host a tailgate party, you need a way to serve the food. Most of us will stock up at our local warehouse store or grocery store and buy paper plates, plastic utensils, napkins, aluminum foil, condiments, etc. Before the next tailgate you have to remember how much of each thing you used last time and make another trip back to the store and restock what you used up last time out in the parking lot.
The creators of TheTailgatingKit.com think they may have an answer for this age old problem. They have taken all of the essential tailgating items you could possibly need for tailgating, placed it in one convenient box and will ship it right to your door. You determine how many people will be at your tailgate and then choose the size tailgating kit and it will suit your needs. All you need to do is remember to bring the food and drinks and everything else can be found all in the box.
We thought this was a cool concept to alleviate all the running around from store to store where some places might not have everything you need all in one place. We requested a few samples of The Tailgating Kit and took it to the San Diego Chargers vs Jacksonville Jaguars game to test it out. We wanted to see if The Tailgating Kit had everything we were going to need to throw a successful tailgate party.
The Tailgating Kit comes in three different sizes; The Basic Kit, the Standard Kit and the Premium Kit. The Basic Kit is compiled for those hosting a tailgate party with 15 people or less. The Standard Kit is designed for parties up to about 20 people and the Premium Kit can handle 25 people. We took the Standard Kit with us to the Chargers/Jaguars game and when we unpacked it, we knew we had more than enough gear to handle all of our guest’s needs.
The Standard Kit comes with:
1 – 8 Piece Fold-A-Way Buffet Set
20 – Dinner Bowls
30 – Dinner Plates
3 – Chip Bowls
2 – Serving Platters
2 – Plastic Table Cloths
1 – Ketchup Bottle
1 – Mustard Bottle
20 – Mayonnaise Packets
1 – Salt Shaker
1 – Pepper Shaker
1 – Wet Naps Pack
20 – Napkins
1 – Paper Towel Roll
1 – Roll of Toilet Paper
20 – Fork, Spoon, Knife and Napkin Combos
20 – Standard Cups
1 – Box Aluminum Foil
3 – Serving Spoons
2 – Tongs
2 – Garbage Bags
3 – Zip Lock Storage Bags (one gallon)
3 – Zip Lock Storage Bags (one quart)
2 – Koozies
Using the Standard Kit as the baseline, the Basic Kit and the Premium Kits have basically the same things in there only more or less quantity based on your estimate of how many guests to expect.
After bringing the Standard Kit to our tailgate, we were not looking around to find anything that might have been missing or forgotten. Everything that we needed for a successful tailgate was all included. Another feature of the Standard Kit was that after you unload all of the stuff out, you line it and the shipping box can be used as a cooler as well. Just throw your beverages in there and add ice and you have yourself a cooler. Once the tailgate is over and you are about to head inside, just throw all your plates and used items in the box and take it to the trash.
The Basic Kit is priced at $54.99 for the time being with the Standard Kit going for $99.99 and the Premium Kit is only available for a limited time and will run you $129.99. Many might claim that you can compile a kit with all the same items for less money but keep in mind, you are paying for the convenience of having it delivered to your door. You are not having to run all over town to two or three different stores to put together this kit on your own.
If you like the convenience of having all of your serving gear in one box and ready to go for each and tailgate, The Tailgating Kit is for you. Based on the convenience and not having to hassle with buying and packing your kit, we are going to deem the Tailgating Kit “Tailgate Approved”.
