White Plains, NEW YORK – You can bet on the spread for Big Game snacking wins this season. Sabra, maker of America’s favorite hummus, drafted celebrity chef Charity Morgan to craft a limited edition ‘Create your Own Play’ snack kit featuring her favorite go-to ideas for game day snacking and sharing. The Le Cordon Bleu graduate, who is married to former pro-football linebacker Derrick Morgan, helped more than a dozen of his Tennessee teammates adopt a plant-forward diet by emphasizing creativity and flavor. Consumers can visit SabraCreateYourOwnPlay for a chance to win a limited-edition kit.
“Hummus belongs in your playbook, no question about it,” said Chef Charity Morgan. “Dip it, spread it, cook with it, or eat it by the spoonful – I’m pretty sure it’s the most versatile food in the world. There is no right or wrong way to love hummus, so I was thrilled to team up with Sabra to create a kit for Big Game snacking that encourages fans to enjoy and play with their food!”
The Big Game is one of the biggest dipping occasions of the year and Americans stock up on hummus for game day, buying more than 7 million lbs of hummus in the two weeks before the Big Game. Hummus, one of the world’s original plant-based foods, is as delicious as it is convenient. According to Information Resources Inc. (IRI), more than 60% of American households are interested in consuming less meat, and more than 30% choose to have meat-free days.*
“After a year of at home cooking and prepping endless meals and snacks, we’ve come to appreciate a new kind of comfort food,” said Lauren Fuller, head of brand communication, Sabra. “Hummus is not only delicious and made with plant-based ingredients, but it’s also convenient and enhances pretty much everything. We love the way Chef Morgan has paired Sabra’s hummus with hot sauce, spices, and whole grain crackers for delicious snacking inspiration.”
Each Create Your Own Play kit includes a full size 17oz tub of Sabra hummus, Cholula® Original Hot Sauce 2 oz, TRISCUIT Original Crackers 8.5oz, McCormick Gourmet™ Organic Shawarma Seasoning 1.87 oz, McCormick Gourmet™ Organic Harissa Seasoning 1.87 oz, and collectable chickpea sun and football shaped spice stencils. Even if you don’t score a kit, you can visit Pinterest for ideas to customize your Sabra hummus dipping experience, including shoppable links allowing consumers to check out from a preferred online retailer.
