Bring A Snack To Share

     You’ve been invited to a party, and you’ve been asked to bring a snack to share with the others in attendance. What’s a good snack to bring as your offering?    

Considerations

     We usually stick with the following criteria for a good party snack:

Bites

We think individual bites are best – something a guest can pick up and put on their plate. Our current go-to snack is Cranberry Brie Bites.

We avoid taking snacks that are messy or need to be cut, sliced, or spread at the table prior to plating. These can cause wardrobe dilemmas and ultimately cleaning bills. 

Bites

Also, we’re not fans of dips which tend to get a bit funky towards the end of the party. We have had some double-dipper sightings recently, so they are still out there evidently oblivious to what they are doing. So, beware and eat the dip early.

The Beauty Of A Disposable Plate

 

     One more suggestion: We like to bring our snack offering on a disposable plate (tray) or in a disposable bowl. This way we’re not having to cart dirty dishes home, and we can leave anytime and people can continue to eat the snacks we’ve brought for them.
