I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central forRubbermaid. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
The weather is getting colder and leaves are falling everywhere, which makes it the perfect time of year for football games. And one of the best parts of attending football games is tailgating!
My daughter goes to a small, regional college which I didn’t realize had a football team until a few weeks ago. So I was surprised when I was there last weekend to see just how many people had set up tents and tables to tailgate before the football game! I have always thought of that as something you see at the top 10 football schools or in the pros, but it is not. After all you can be just as passionate about food and football for a small game as for a big one.
One necessity for tailgating is good food storage containers for taking all the yummy game day recipes to the stadium. Rubbermaid sent me some food storage containers to try out for my tailgating fun, a 24 piece Easy Find Lids and a Party Platter.
I took my Hawaiian Chili recipe to on our tailgating adventure, and these products were perfect for keeping the food fresh and making tailgating a breeze! The Easy Find Lids collection is great for transporting the chili, along a few other snacks like brownies. Everything stayed tightly closed and there is no worry about chili spilling on the brownies and ruining dessert! I have a little crock pot that plugs into a car cigarette lighter, so once we get to the game I can reheat the chili and be ready to eat.
I put all the chili toppings in the Party Platter, which is perfect for convenience. My family all like different chili toppings – I love lots of green onions and cheese, my son piles on the avocado, and my husband has some of everything. The Party Platter made an on-the-go topping bar.
Easy Find Lids
These containers make it easier to keep the kitchen and pantry organized. I am sure you have the same experience I have, of filling a container with leftovers and then not being able to find the lid. Of course you know the lid is somewhere, but finding it can mean emptying entire cupboards! Rubbermaid had the brilliant idea of making lids that snap onto the bottom of matching containers, so you never have to search for the lid. And the square containers come in graduated sizes that nest together to take up less room.
The Party Platter is a lightweight 2 in 1 food container, and is good for use when entertaining at home or taking a dish to a party. The base is large, so it easily keeps the different foods separate and you can fill it with generous portions. The center container has a twist on lid, so you can feel secure that the sour cream will not end up all over the avocado. The container has a secure lid that keeps everything tightly sealed and makes it easy to use on the go.
Rubbermaid storage containers like the Easy Find Lids and Party Platter make life less complicated by providing smart, simple solutions. The containers are easy to find, and keep food fresh longer. They are also perfect for tailgating, and for taking lunches or other well-proportioned meals on the go.
