Game Day Snack Recipe…and Plastics Makes it Possible Giveaway!


I am giving away some great plastic kitchen goodies! Read to the bottom of this post for details!

Plastic gets a bad wrap (pun intended). Because of decades of plastic being used as simple “throw away” and easy clean-up items, the stigma of plastics being disposable and not “fit for company” has somewhat stuck. But have you seen what plastic has been up to lately?

Plastic Kitchen Supplies
From reduced material plastic peanut containers, to Preserve Plastic products, plastics are making huge strides in sustainability.

Plastic has not only become an attractive alternative to glassware in the kitchen, the plastic industry is also leading efforts to protect our planet. Plus, when you have friends over for game day, and everyone gets excited over a great interception, things tend to go flying…and if they are on plastic platters you don’t have to worry about breakage!

Game Day Snack Pizza Poppers
This plastic platter is beautiful. You have to touch it to even know it’s not glass!

For this week’s game, I wanted to do a play on the jalapeno popper. I also wanted to use the super fun grater that I received. Naturally (?) I decided to make pepperoni pizza poppers!

Plastic cheese grater container
This grater is amazing! It measures as you grate, AND has a no-slip bottom!

The poppers were tangy and multi-dimensional. They were a perfect one bite treat to get everyone ready for the game. They also got my brain working. You could stuff a pepper with pretty much anything! Chicken parm poppers, buffalo chicken poppers, and greek poppers are all on my list to try for the upcoming weekends.


What would you like to see in your poppers?

  1. Today I used plastic to serve my burgers, deviled eggs, and salsa. Then I used plastic to pack it all up in when I put it away. To mower ill use a plastic water bottle for the kids’ lunch, and plastic containers for cut up cantaloupe.

  2. I use a lot of plastic in my kitchen when I stop and think about it. I like to save and reuse containers to store leftovers and bring them into work for lunch. I actually just bought a bunch of plastic containers to store flour, sugar etc. in – great giveaway!
