Two of the most in demand Super Bowl snacks have to be Buffalo wings and hummus. But why pick between spicy and smooth when you can have the best of both worlds?

This dip is fiery and addictive. It’s extra smooth thanks to a dose of Greek yogurt, which also helps keep it much healthier than your typical bowl of dip. It’s topped with crunchy celery, tangy blue cheese and an extra drizzle of wing sauce for extra kick.

Now all you need is a killer bag of chips for dipping. And luckily for me, Late July sent over a case with 7 different types of chips for me to choose from.

If pressed to pick favorites for this particular dip, Dino and I would choose Red Hot Mojo. It adds a bit of smokiness that really compliments this chickpea goodness. Sea Salt by the Sea Shore was a close 2nd.

We may have polished off an entire bag of Dude Ranch before I even finished chopping the celery. Don’t judge.

Late July Chips

And you know how it’s almost impossible to keep up with all of your friends’ various dietary restrictions/allergies/health crazes at every moment? And how that can really throw a wrench into your party menu planning?

Well these chips are great because they’re all organic, non-GMO, 100% whole grains, lightly salted/low sodium, gluten free and peanut & tree nut free… and absolutely delicious! Most of the flavors are even vegan.
