Major Grey's Chutney, a flavorful medley of tropical fruits like mango, tamarind and lime, is a delicious appetizer when poured over cream cheese or served as a marinade for pork or chicken. Originally derived from Indian cuisine, the name 'chutney' comes from the word "chatnu," meaning "to taste."  Use it to create exotic Peanut Butter Jalapeno Poppers.

Rich and zesty Crosse & Blackwell Seafood Sauces are a simple way to make a big impression at the snack table. Made with choice ingredients like tamarinds, ripe tomatoes and pure ground horseradish, Seafood Cocktail Sauce and Shrimp Sauce are the ideal complement to succulent fresh seafood like shrimp, crab, lobster and oysters.  They can also be used to make family-friendly Fiesta Shrimp Appetizer.  

Adding vibrant flavor and gourmet flair to the simplest dishes is easy with Crosse & Blackwell Relishes, Capers and Cocktail Onions. These little jars pack a punch of texture, taste and flavor that will add a special touch to game day snacks and appetizers.

With Crosse & Blackwell products on hand, there's no reason why armchair athletes can't enjoy an exceptional food fest on every game day – no matter which team wins.
