Football and Chocolate

Our house is a football watching house. I must admit I don't follow sportsball very much, but my husband has made it his life's work to make sure the kids are devoted Eagles fans, and that's fine with me.

Last Sunday was a big day here because the Eagles played the Redskins, my hometown team, so my brother and his friend came over for the big game. I've always really only been interested in the outfits, so in keeping with that I dressed my two daughters in their Eagles cheerleader outfits and put a Redskins shirt on the baby.

Then I realized I should probably feed my guests something, and found much like old Mother Hubbard, my cupboard was bare. I didn't have anything but grapes and pretzel rods which isn't exactly festive. At least I had plenty of beer.

If you are doing some football entertaining yourself, DOVE Chocolate is here to save you from having a plight similar to mine.

DOVE Chocolate is offering Ultimate Football Entertaining Kits for five lucky winners. To enter, all you need to do is leave a comment and answer this all-important question: if you had to choose only one, would you spend a Sunday watching football or eating chocolate?

- Plenty of DOVE Chocolate
- Recipes for new game day snacks
- Coupons for more DOVE Chocolate!

Contest ends next Friday, October 22. If your email address is not easily accessible, please leave it in your comment so I can contact you if you are one of the contest winners.

Why not enjoy the best of both worlds and spend Sunday eating chocolate WHILE watching football?

Just like the Aztecs did, more or less.

Anna said...

love your aztec sensibilities - but that's what makes the question so hard to answer... you have to pick just one. good luck deciding!

A Sunday of football is always better with chocolate, especially when your team is losing!

I would rather watch football on a Sunday! Eating chocolate always gives me a tummy ache... maybe because I eat too much of it :)
