Pork Rind Appreciation Day – Gridiron Groovin’! (AND A GIVEAWAY!)

When I married my husband, I understood that I was marrying into a fantastic southern family. A fantastic southern family who hollered “Roll Tide!” any chance they got.

Fast forward a few years, and not only does our household have battery-operated mascots that play a full-orchestra version of the college song, but our 15-month-old twins even have their own cheerleader outfits. Two different kinds of them, to be exact. I’ve given in.

Not that I really minded in the first place.

As anyone who knows anything about college football knows, Alabama is…well…pretty durn GOOD. (Never mind that nail-biter last week with Mississippi State – did anyone SEE that?! WOAH!!!) I definitely think we’ll have a good group of guys moving on to the pros. And anyone who knows anything about football in general knows that, as games go (college OR pro), they’re always better if excellent snacks are involved!

So when Southern Recipe contacted me about their 7th Annual Pork Rind Appreciation Day, and sharing the news about their Gridiron Groovin’ game with NFL legend, Billy “White Shoes” Johnson, I was all about it!

The awesome thing about Gridiron Groovin’ is that you can play as many times as you’d like! Each time you do, you’ll queue Southern Recipe to make a donation to the Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund. As well, a portion of the sale of each purchase of all Rudolph Foods’ products during the Pork Rind Appreciation Day season, including Southern Recipe, Southern Recipe Small Batch, Pepe’s Snacks and Lee’s Pig Skins, will support the Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund.
