Cheer on your favorite team during March Madness with a wide selection of finger food and snacks. Find easy-to-serve choices for a big party or a small gathering throughout the store. And then sit back, relax and enjoy the game!

Get your party started with chips and dips available in Our Kitchen, from fresh-made guacamole  to Seven Layer Dip. Serve up melt-in-your-mouth Spinach & Artichoke Dip and Buffalo Chicken Dip, with a balance of spice and a creamy texture. Pair the spread of dips with a selection of chips, including our own tortilla chips, made from soft tortillas and baked in the oven.

Stop by the deli for March Madness Snack Platters, featuring the high-quality deli meat and cheeses from Dietz & Watson and other popular brands of cheeses and snacks, as well as an array of Ciabatta Sandwiches.

As the game gets going, bring out a round of warm finger food. From sweet honey stung monster wings to hot, spicy buffalo to dip in blue cheese dressing, our Hot Wing Bar is full of options for everyone at your party. Or skip the bones with hand-breaded chicken tenders in three flavors, buffalo, BBQ and plan. Don’t forget extra sauce for dipping.

Choose from three types of tempting potato skins, Pulled Pork, Bacon Cheddar or Buffalo Chicken, available in packs of 4. And straight from Our Bakery, Bloomin’ Bread is always a slam dunk. Loaded with mozzarella, pepperoni and garlic butter, it’s ready to pull apart and eat!

Add some easy-to-heat bites from the freezer, such as mozzarella sticks, bagel bites and Davio’s Spring Rolls. For bigger appetites, heat up some Uno Grab & Go Calzones, Tina’s Burritos and Drive Through Bacon Burgers.

Finish everything off with some desserts from Our Bakery. Offer a choice of brownies, cookies and cupcakes, plus Mini European Bar Cakes with layers of fruit and cream filling.

We hope you enjoy March Madness and all the finger food and snacks to go with it!

Don’t come up short when game time rolls around. Let Roche Bros. make it simple and flavorful with Tasty Tailgating offerings that are fresh and ready to go. Sit back, relax, enjoy the game, and we will help you make your tailgating party easy, with options for everyone at your party.

First Half

Everything starts with the Guacamole Outpost. Game-day weekends feature fresh guacamole, made to order at our Guacamole Carts. It works well as a dip, or as a spread on sandwiches. Or if you’re more of a do-it-yourself kind of person, fresh Haas Avocadoes are available in our produce department.

Make your game-time finger food spicy and fun for with our Build Your Own Nacho Kits, with pre-cooked seasoned ground beef, homemade chips and all the fixings!

Swing by Our Kitchen for a wide assortment of appetizers and finger foods for all types of parties. Try some of our homemade dips, such as 7 Layer Dip,  Buffalo Chicken Dip, and Spinach & Artichoke Dip, with crackers, chips or cut veggies. Also select from other finger-food favorites, including chicken tenders and stuffed potato skins, with three types of fillings, buffalo chicken, BBQ pork or bacon & cheddar.

Football season is prime time for our Wing Bar, with long-time favorite Honeystung Monster Wings, and crispy flats & drummies, as well as our all-natural Bell & Evans wings in four flavors: buffalo, sweet teriyaki, maple bourbon and Carolina BBQ.

Catch everyone’s attention with our Bakery’s Bloomin’ Bread, a tailgating staple.  Loaded with mozzarella and pepperoni, your guests will pull it apart in seconds!

Second Half

Our USDA Prime Burgers and sliders are ready for half time.  Switch things up with our flavors such as the Steak Bomb, Bacon and Cheddar, or Portabella Swiss.

Italian sausage and Bratwurst or marinated steak tips are also crowd pleasers. Grill them up and finish them off with onions and peppers.

If  you don’t want the hassle of cooking a big meal, our BBQ Pulled Pork and St. Louis Ribs are tangy, flavorful, ready to heat and serve. Add our deli’s cole slaw or homemade potato salad to complete the spread.

Visit the seafood department for a Shrimp Cocktail Platter. We arrange our fresh cocktail shrimp with slices of lemon and plenty of tangy, spicy cocktail sauce on a tray that’s ready to serve. Or serve up our Buffalo Shrimp Dip tray.

Finish the party off with desserts from our Bakery. Football Field Dessert Cakes and Football Whoopie Pies are festive additions to your spread. For a smaller gathering, try a brownie and cookie snack plate.

We hope to see you every weekend during football season to help with your tailgating parties. Enjoy the season, and of course, go Pats!
