Host A Summer Olympics Watch Party With Hormel©! #HormelFamily

    Many of us would love to catch a plane to London this summer to attend the Summer Olympics.  Unfortunately, the reality is that the majority of us will probably end up watching all the excitement of the Olympics from our living rooms.  Watching the competition of this historical event is already exciting as it is but it can become even more memorable if you incorporate your own games and yummy snacks into a viewing party.

    Decorating for your party is a no brainer because you want to demonstrate your patriotism by adopting a red, white, and blue theme.  You can even make it a multicultural event by including flags that represent the countries of your guests as part of the decor.  This is a great way of getting into the true spirit of the Olympics which is one of international brotherhood.

    Take advantage of the commercial breaks to engage your guests in a series of Olympic Games of your own!  You can take these games outdoors to take full advantage of the gorgeous summer weather.  Indoors, you can play trivia and quiz everyone on well known facts of past Olympic Games.

    Your party menu is extremely important.  A wonderful meat product to include in your meals is Hormel© Natural Choice© new chicken and smoked sausages.  The chicken sausages are available in apple gouda, spinach asiago and jalapeño cheddar varieties.  On the other hand, the smoked sausages are available in original, beef and turkey varieties.

    In keeping with the Olympic theme of your party, Olympian and health activist Dominique Dawes will be teaming up with Hormel Foods and the Hormel© Natural Choice© brand  this summer.  Their goal is to support parents in making nutritional decisions, and using fitness and motivational tools that will benefit their children’s health.

    Dawes was a top Olympic gymnast who competed and won medals in three consecutive Olympic Games and has the distinguished honor of being the only African-American gymnast to win an Olympic gold medal.  You can learn more about this program by visiting their website.  You will be sure to find lots of ideas there to make your viewing party the talk of the neighborhood!
