It's that time of year when football takes center stage in a collision of arguably the two best teams in the NFL for Super Bowl LVIII. Whether you are cheering for Kansas City or San Francisco or a Taylor Swift appearance is up to you, but pretty much everyone can agree at least two highlights of this annual showdown: the commercials and the snacks.
No matter if you're just there to catch a glimpse of Usher's halftime show, check out celeb cameos, or actually watch football, grazing while you do so is a must.
Costco is the ultimate one-stop shop for all of your Super Bowl snacking needs. From prepared foods to marinated meats, frozen goodies to dips galore, here are 14 items to pick up for your gathering. Costco also puts its TVs on sale right before the Super Bowl, so if you need a vessel for watching—the warehouse club has you covered there, too.
Kettle Brand Krinkle Cut Himalayan Salt Potato Chips
Classic ridged potato chips are a must to pair with the plethora of dips that are bound to be a part of your gameday spread. These are a bit sturdier than your classic Ruffles and hold up well to any dunking. They are also delicious just on their own. You can grab a 32-ounce bag for $5.99 at the warehouse. With the price of chips these days, that's a stellar deal.
Callie's Caramelized Onion Dip
Callie may be known for her South Carolina shop, Callie's Hot Little Biscuit, but she's come out with a caramelized onion dip especially for this time of year. The thick, onion dip is great for chips but Redditors find real value in spreading it on a sandwich or burger, a fun way to jazz up any sandwich or slider trays. A 24-ounce container is $8.99 in the warehouse.
Kirkland Signature Garlic Seasoned Party Wings
What's a Super Bowl party without chicken wings? Costco marinated these for you with its own Kirkland Signature garlic seasoning, making it easy to just throw them in the oven when it's halftime. (You could also buy them pre-cooked in the deli section.) Grab them for $3.99 per pound at the warehouse.

Sure, you could stick to Bud Light as the official sponsor of the Super Bowl. Or, you could grab a box of these IPAs from Sierra Nevada for something new to try. This High Gravity variety pack has four different varieties to enjoy. You get six of each style (24 in total) for $30.99 in the warehouse.

Siete Grain Free Tortilla Chips
It's not a requirement to have anything healthy at a Super Bowl party, but when better-for-you meets delicious, it's worth it. These grain-free tortilla chips from Siete are light and crispy and also gluten- and dairy-free. A worthy pick-up for dipping or crunching on their own. A 12-ounce bag, smaller for Costco standards, will run you $5.99 at the warehouse, so pick up two!
La Terra Fina Spinach Artichoke & Parmesan Dip
Spinach and artichoke may be the quintessential dip for any large gathering. It's always a crowd pleaser. La Terra Fina puts its own spin on the standard with the addition of parmesan.

A steal, it's just $7.99 for two 23-ounce jars at the warehouse.
Kirkland Signature Beef Chili
A vat of chili is always a crowd pleaser and it's no different on SuperBowl Sunday. Set up a bar with all the fixins'—cheese, onions, sour cream—and warm up Costco's beef chili. You'll get close to four pounds per container at $3.49 per pound and it's always a fan favorite.
Frank's Red Hot
If there was ever a time to buy loads of Buffalo sauce, it would be Super Bowl Sunday, and nobody does it better than Frank's Red Hot. Douse your wings, serve it on the side, turn it into Buffalo chicken dip—the applications are endless. You'll usually find a good stock-up sale on these close to the Super Bowl. Two 25-ounce bottles will cost you $10.19 online, with $2 off right now if you buy two packages.
