With the sun shining, flowers blooming and warm weather here again, it's the perfect time to gather your friends and family around the backyard for a summer grillout. Preparation serves as the foundation for any successful event. To make sure your backyard bash will be one your guests will remember for years to come, consider the following summer party essentials.
A crunchy BBQ companion
For all of those backyard barbecues this summer, Cape Cod, known for ridiculously good kettle-cooked potato chips, offers a variety for everyone to enjoy. The Sea Salt Waffle Cut chips are sturdy enough for dipping into creamy dips, while keeping the Cape Cod crunch. Or serve the Original chips, which pair perfectly with any burger or hot dog, making Cape Cod "a grill's best friend." For more delicious ideas, visit www.capecodchips. com.
Cool down with a frozen treat
Give your guests a reprieve from the heat with a flavorful frozen treat. Bomb Pops, a beloved ice cream truck classic, are delightful, outdoor-friendly and sure to please kids and adults alike. While the sixfinned original red, white and blue treat is an all-American favorite, you can also add a blast of flavor to your gathering with the Sour Wower Bomb Pop. This refreshing treat has serious sourness, featuring flavors of grape, green apple and blue raspberry. For more flavors, visit www.bombpop.com.
