Admittedly, this crunchy, savory appetizer might skew toward the dudes. But trust us, everyone will go wild for this go-to on game day! My husband especially loves that it features all of his favorite foods: salted meats, salted nuts and hot sauce. —Gina Myhill-Jones, 100 Mile House, British Columbia

"It is what it says, Meat Lover's snack mix. Yes, it's salty, but it's party food, not something to eat daily at every meal. I get the concern if you have high blood pressure or another health issue, but really, lighten up people."
