What Snacks to Have at Your St. Patty’s Day Event

Funky Chunky

Everyone is Irish on Saint Patrick’s Day. We live in inclusive times, and this oft-repeated phrase sends a loud and deliciously resounding message now more than ever. This year, don’t pass up the opportunity to have a good time, accompanied with food, drink and friends, and be sure you have more than enough snacks to keep the party going til the wee hours!

How Saint Patrick’s Day Is All About Inclusivity

The original St. Patty’s Day story harkens back to a mythical medieval figure known – at least in the tales of yore – for driving snakes out of Ireland. The tale has since morphed into something more along the lines of: invite all your friends, include people you’re just getting to know and a few you just met, and get your party on. Where, how and when this happens is not nearly as important as the idea of togetherness and celebrations that might take the form of river dancing, parades and bar hopping.

Think Outside the Box When Planning Your Event

If you’re planning an event to mark this popular March 17 holiday, your food should be inclusive too. In other words, don’t get too hung up on the central image the Emerald Isle represents. Sure, you can include all the green shamrocks and leprechauns to your heart’s content. But while you’re at it, it’s also a good idea to think outside the box and ask yourself: what kinds of snacks are universally beloved that are sure to put a smile on the faces of hosts, guests and everyone else in attendance? 

Mix Up Your Party Snack Offerings

Whether you’re heading to an event or creating one yourself, think outside the box this year. What snacks do people love more than anything? What are the flavor profiles that are seemingly irresistible at every party you attend? Along with the corned beef hash and green beer, you want something that even your pickiest friend will enjoy. 

At Funky Chunky, we have more than a few ideas for mouth-watering, sweet-and-salty snacks that will be popular at every shindig and get-together this side of Galway:

Multi-flavored Popcorn

Whether they come in a large bucket, tin, or individual plastic bags, flavored popcorn is about as universally beloved as it gets. Especially when it comes to the more casual of celebrations (and this day is notoriously casual), what you want is to have something that almost everyone can enjoy – and lots and lots of it. 

Chocolate Dipped Pretzels

Just like with our popcorn snacks, our flavored pretzel options come drizzled in chocolate, caramel and nuts, and a whole array of ingredient combinations. In fact, we provide so many options that it can be hard to choose just one!

While you plan, be sure to include a variety of options so that no one is left out. Party gift packs, tasting kits, deluxe tins, and a variety of other gift packs are all created for group enjoyment. SInce this day is about indulging, better to err on the side of having a little extra so there can be leftovers the next day, rather than not enough and risking running out of food!
