Hey guys!!!  Summer is full of BBQs and in just a few days we are having the biggest one for the 4th of July!!  I’m pretty sure it’s a sin not to grill out on the 4th.

So to help you have the perfect 4th of July I have gathered up some of my new favorite BBQ party necessities!

My favorite BBQ necessities!

Everything you need for the best 4th!

First of all I feel BBQs are super casual, people want quick and simple foods.  They want chips and dip, not hors d’oeuvre and canapes lol.  So when BabbleBox sent me these RITZ Crisp & Thins to try I knew they would be the perfect thing for any get together this summer. New RITZ Crisp & Thins offers the

Available in Sea Salt, Cream Cheese & Onion, Bacon and Salt & Vinegar flavors there is something for everyone.  I just put them in bowls all around the party and all my friends and family love them!

Olives (1 of 1)

Now I love olives.  I could eat them everyday, and I usually do.  So of course for me there is nothing better than salty olives to pick at during a party.  My favorite are Mario Snack olives.  They are the pop-able olive that is unstoppable! Easy for all my guests to grab and eat.

No BBQ is complete without baked beans.  I mean it is just not the 4th of July without some delicious baked beans.  Now you can get your baked bean fix without all the work.

Green Giant Baked Beans (1 of 1)

Green Giant, the iconic vegetable brand, has introduced a new line of baked beans at Food Lion, Schnucks and Giant Eagle just in time for summer., Green Giant Baked Beans are slow-baked to perfection in traditional iron pots and brick ovens to capture a rich flavor (people will think you slaved all day over these yummy beans!) Green Giant Baked Beans have the perfect blend of spices in each bite and are available in Original, Maple, Vegetarian and Country Style varieties.  I love keeping these on hand for any get together in the summer.  Just warm them up and you will have happy guests!

I always love Newman’s Own for my dressings and I was so happy to see they have a delicious Sweet & Spicy Barbecue Sauce that is great for grilling, dipping and marinating.  I love that it has no high fructose corn syrup and contains only quality ingredients like cane sugar and black strap molasses which makes it extra delicious on anything from chicken to ribs.  This is definitely a BBQ necessity.

With all those rich BBQ foods we always like to lighten things up with a bright, fresh salad and Newman’s Own Citrus Splash Dressing is just the ticket!  Great-tasting dressing with refreshing flavor is perfect for summer salads or even as a marinade (it makes killer grilled chicken!) With a fruity blend of citrus flavors, from lemon and lime to tangerine and no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives it is a great pop of flavor for your salad!

And of course with 100% of profits to charity not only is Newman’s Own products delicious but you’ll feel good too!

Now I have one last BBQ necessity!  Vodka!  Because you can’t celebrate the 4th of July without a great cocktail!

SVEDKA Vodka has debuted their Limited-Edition Party Bottle for Summer 2017 which has colorful stars and stripes BOOM on the packaging making it a hit at summertime parties.
