We're the kind of people who have to eat every three hours, and Pure Leaf Iced Tea is here to help with that.
Today: Celebrate America's 239th birthday with snacks, so many snacks.
There is no holiday better suited for snacking than the Fourth of July.
There are two reasons for this: The holiday calls for day-long picnics in local parks and rooftop campouts under sky-brightening fireworks, and snack food is as American as barbecuing (and a heck of a lot easier). Which is why I’m trading in the menu-planning that comes with holidays for an impressive snack and drink line-up. We have a formula that will ensure a full day of eating (even while holding a sparkler). Here’s our guide to the best 4th of July snacks:
Start with spirits.
Bring out the red, white, and bean dip.
Move on to the bite-sized and break-apart.
