4 Smart Picks for Holiday Party Foods


As the holiday party season kicks off, businesses, party planners, caterers and private individuals are all seeking to build the best experience they can. They want solutions that are budget-friendly and simple, yet unique and engaging for guests. Here are some top choices for foods that will deliver not only taste, but a memorable occasion.

Festive Fudge:  Whether served as a dessert or packaged as a thank-you gift for guests as they leave, you can play up the most famous flavors of the season with fudge. Candy Cane, Chocolate Mint and even Egg Nog are just some of the possibilities.


Go Gourmet:  Capitalize on one of the hottest trends that’s easy to execute and delivers a wow factor. A popcorn bar with a variety of flavors allows you to please all kinds of preferences. And the presentation of colors gives a great visual. From cheese to spicy and decadent dessert flavors, there are plenty of options.


Family Friendly:  If catering to a group that includes children, consider foods that are fun. Cotton candy isn’t just a summertime favorite, Winter Frost gives it a seasonal chill that everyone can enjoy. (You can even add it to hot chocolate!) Kids and parents also appreciate activities, so another suggestion would be to create a funnel cake decorating station with different toppings.


Just Wing It:  Create your own signature menu of wing flavors with Gold Medal Savory Shakes. Easy-to-make, just shake-on or use a tumbler and your menu expands to include selections like Garlic Parmesan, Honey Mustard, Ranch, Sriracha and more. Also a great on french fries.
