If you are a fan of social media, you have probably seen those Football Stadiums made entirely out of snacks. Impressive but time consuming, expensive and not terribly practical for tailgating or even game watching at home. We recently discovered a new product called Taste of the Stadium.
As you can see in the video and the photo above, Taste of the Stadium is a way to hold all of your game day snacks in one place while contained in a replica football stadium. The field itself can even hold a cake or you can place figurines in there to replicate a real game going on and your snacks are the spectators.
We were sent a sample of Taste of the Stadium. We tried it out this past weekend while watching the AFC and NFC Championship games.
The Taste Stadium arrives in a large, flat box that will require some assembly. My 7-year old son and I were able to assemble it completely in about 10 to 15 minutes. We stopped along the way to take photos so it may have taken less time than that had we been focused on just putting it together.
The instructions are very easy to understand. It is a lot of folding Tab A and inserting Slot B but all in all, not confusing at all. If you are more of a visual learner, they even have an assembly video.
Once assembled, the stadium measures 31″ x 35″. The ‘field’ holds a 13″ X 9″ X 2″ pan or standard 1/4 sheet cake. The corners hold traditional sized deli or dip containers, both round or square. The grandstands hold a regular sized loaf pan. All materials and printing are food-safe allowing chips, cookies or any other food items to be placed directly in the stadium. In most cases, wipe it down with a damp cloth and you can use it again.
As we mentioned, we tested out the Taste of the Stadium while watching the football games this weekend and it passed with flying colors. A perfect addition to any watch party at home, a.k.a. “homegating”, but even more perfect for a Super Bowl watch party.
Because we are all about tailgating, the Taste of the Stadium could easily go tailgating and be the hit of the parking lot. We would recommend setting it up at home first before taking it tailgating. Break it down once it is assembled and put it back into the box and assemble once parked and tailgating. This way you have put it together once and understand all the folds and insertions. This will make the process quicker because we all know time is precious when out tailgating.
After testing it out while Homegating, the Taste of the Stadium is definitely “Tailgate Approved”. Here comes the best part. You can win one of three (3) Taste of the Stadiums being given away and you can have them for your Super Bowl party.
