3 Local Snacks You Must Have For Super Bowl Sunday
Super Bowl Sunday is a day dedicated not only to the greatness of the gridiron, but also the full lineup of game time snacks. We have rounded up a few local items to make your football table a sure win with haute hot dogs, manly cupcakes and a new version of the “King of Beers.”
Those looking to up their game this year should consider picking up their gameday meats from Salume Beddu—a local shop dedicated to artisan cured meats. “Pigs-in-a-blanket” are a staple for any Super Bowl spread, but try swapping the traditional Oscar Meyer frank for a fresh sausage, such as the spicy fiama with fennel and smoked paprika or the Bolognese with hints of cinnamon and nutmeg. House-cured bacon to crumble into layered dips and slices of cured meats for a cheese platter can also be purchased. Note, Salume Beddu is closed on Sunday so plan ahead. Open Tuesday through Saturday from 11am to 6pm. 3467 Hampton Ave., Lindenwood Park, 314.353.3100.
Speaking of meat, The Cup is bringing back their macho maple bacon cupcake in honor of Sunday’s game. The maple cake base has bits of candied bacon folded into the batter before being baked and is topped off with even more maple that’s mixed into a brown sugar frosting. Toasted pecans and pecan-wood smoked bacon garnish the salty-sweet cupcake. Available through March 3 and can be ordered in advance by calling or going online. Note, The Cup is closed on Sunday so cupcakes will have to be picked up on Saturday. Open Monday through Thursday from 9:30am to 6:30pm and Friday through Saturday from 9:30am to 9:30pm. 28 Maryland Plaza Rear, The Central West End, 314.367.6111 or 1590 Clarkson Rd., Chesterfield, 636.536.2287.
Stifle sniffles when watching Anheuser-Busch’s adorable puppy commercial by sipping one of Budweiser’s Project 12 line of beers. The brews are named after the zip codes of their origin, so look for St. Louis’ own Batch No. 63118, which is a deep, golden pilsner. Batch No. 63118 pours quite clear with a white head while a faint floral aroma is detected on the nose. Up front there is a nice crispness that’s accompanied by a sweetness that’s balanced by notes of malt. Project 12 bottles come in variety packs and can be purchased at area Schnucks.
