Tailgating Done Right With Rubbermaid

*Disclosure- I received the mentioned product courtesy of the sponsor for the purpose of this review. All opinions are genuine, based on my experience with the product, and have not been influenced by promotional items.


Are you ready for some FOOTBALL!? We definitely are! We live right around the corner from Notre Dame, so tailgating and hosting football parties is what we do best around here. Saturday was a home game, so excitement was really in the air in our area. It's always so fun to see everyone dressed up in team colors, good nature bantering with rivals, and let's not forget one of the most important parts of tailgating before the game: The Food! Whether we are hosting at home or hitting the road, we always make sure we have enough good eats on hand. One of the most important things about food is finding proper storage to keep it fresh and safe for transportation. That's why I have been a fan of the Rubbermaid brand for years. They have every product that I need to help keep my food the life of the party!

Rubbermaid

The Rubbermaid Party Platter allows me to pack up finger foods and dips and safely transport them in a lightweight, yet durable container to our tailgate adventures. If features:
  • A leak-proof, Twist & Seal lid that secures dips and prevents spills 
  • An outer lid that snaps onto the platters base for a tight seal and secure transportation
  • A removable dip container that stays chilled in a cooler or reheats in a microwave 
  • A divided platter base that keeps food separated
  • Is BPA free and dishwasher, microwave and freezer safe



My favorite feature has to be the twist and seal container that keeps my dips secure. We just made my favorite Queso Blanco Dip this weekend and paired it with crisp veggies. Is was so delish!

Queso Blanco Dip

Ingredients:

8 ounces White American Cheese, cut into small cubes
1/8 cup diced green chilies
1 chopped jalapeno pepper
1/3 cup whole milk
1/4 cup cold water

Directions: Add all ingredients to a heavy bottom sauce pan. Heat on medium heat until cheese is melted and all ingredients are blended. Serve immediately with chips or veggies. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

*Reheat in the microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring after each until it reaches a creamy consistency.


We love to store our leftovers in Rubbermaid Easy Find Lids™ containers. The lids in this food storage system snap together and snap to the bottom of their matching container, ensuring the right lid is always at your fingertips! The containers all nestle together perfectly, so they don't ever take up a ton of room in my cupboards when not in use. I do like how they stack nicely, so I can always find what I am looking for quickly in my refrigerator.


  • Lids snap together and to container bases so you can always find the right lid
  • Graduated sized containers nest for compact storage
  • One lid fits multiple bases
  • Square shape for optimal space utilization
  • Microwave / Freezer / Dishwasher Safe
  • Thick, durable container walls for everyday use
  • Bases and Lids are BPA FREE

  1. when you mentioned "tailgating" I immediately thought of when you tailgate another car.. so didn't really catch it haha. Hate it when I transfer food around and it spills out of the containers so great that you managed to find these!! Enjoy your parties!

  4. I should so get this set. We have so many lids that are broken. I looked on Amazon to replace them, and the lids alone are more than the containers. It's pretty sad. I told Travis that we should make a company that just sells reliable lids for containers. We'll just have to get a new set.
