Snickers Dip

You guys.

What’s your FAVORITE candy bar?  I have asked this question MANY times on social media, and typically the Snickers Bar wins out.

I love Snickers, so much so that we even made them into a salad.  (for real — a SALAD.)

We love to nosh on dips, and I have quite a few right here on my website, but most times they are savory.  I decided it was time to sweeten things up a bit.

Best thing — reducing the “guilt factor” — because this dip is AMAZING on apples.  We eat TONS of fruit in our house, and apples are a family favorite.  I typically buy about 3 or 4 different kinds while I am shopping.

FF grocery list

Recently our local grocery store got a make-over.  It’s now called Family Fare, and it’s only a couple of miles from my house.   Family Fare has taken over what used to be Bag ‘n Save and No Frills Supermarkets in many locations in Omaha, Bellevue and Council Bluffs.  All stores feature a re-modeled look. This week they are celebrating in 8 of those stores with a ribbon cutting ceremony as well as with four days of Grand Re-Opening fun events.

FF Organic Produce

Thinking about the amount of produce my family purchases and consumes, makes me super excited to tell you about Family Fare’s newly expanded produce section, boasting Omaha’s best organic variety, 200% freshness guarantee and the lowest produce prices in town.

Family Fare Omaha

I visited the location on 144th Street in Omaha today for the Grand Re-Opening.

The Grand Re-Opening began at 8 of the area stores this morning with a ribbon cutting ceremony.  Each store is having lots of demonstrations, samples and there are some awesome giveaways!  Daily prizes like a FREE grill and Tender Ridge grilling package.  All of the 14 area stores will have a first prize of Free Groceries for a year and the GRAND prize?  2 tickets and a four night stay in Houston for the 2017 Pro Football Championship!

Store guests who shop with their yes Rewards Card between July 20 and the end of August will automatically be entered into the Super Sweepstakes. One lucky winner will win the grand prize- a four-night getaways and two tickets to the 2017 Pro Football Championship in Houston, Texas on February 5, 2017. Two first-prize winners will receive free groceries for a year.

There are lots of other fun events going on during the Grand Re-Opening, held July 20-23,2016.  Kid fun like the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile, Bridgeford Bass Pro Fishing Team, The Cole Porter Band and Cookies BBQ Sauce Grill Wagon with Smithfield Meats.  Check local listing for times and locations.

FF Tender Ridge Angus Beef

While visiting today I was given the chance to try some Tender Ridge Angus steak.  Family Fare states that “Tender Ridge Angus provides the tastiest, highest quality and most tender meat your money can buy.”   To earn this distinction, these tender cuts of Angus beef must meet these requirements: USDA tenderness audits, 14-day minimum aging, Proper monitoring and labeling, and Shear-force testing (scientific standard to evaluate tenderness.)  All of their meat teams are trained to make sure that our USDA Certified Tender cuts of Tender Ridge Angus have earned that shield and are ready for you to enjoy.

Also exciting, is the Living Well Section of the stores.  Many of the Family Fare stores will have this new section, dedicated to just that, living well.  Living better.  ” We (Family Fare) believe that eating healthy begins with healthy choices and that if you eat better you feel better.”  Some of the choices include: Gluten Free, Allergen Free, Dairy Alternatives, Vegan, Organic, Non-GMO, Probiotics, Bulk Foods, Raw Foods, Superfoods, Cold-pressed juices and teas, vitamins and nutrition supplements, and health and beauty products. The 144th and Center Street store in Omaha, where I shopped the Grand Opening, will even have a Kosher foods section.  Some of the locations have a section dedicated just to the Living Well products.  Others, like the one I visited today,  have them integrated throughout the store.

In a bit I will tell you about how you can save money on gas, and how to even get free milk — plus I will give two of my readers $25 to shop at Family Fare and see what they think for themselves.  BUT I have to tell you what else I got while I shopped, first.

    1. May I use softened cream cheese in place of the whipped cream cheese listed in your recipe? I do have cream cheese; however, I cannot afford to pay extra money for the “whipped cream cheese”. I do want to make this, but cost of ingredients is a factor. Please respond. Thank you—I know you are no doubt busy,

      1. Karen – You can totally use regular cream cheese. Whip it with your mixer and it’ll get that fluffy texture like the whipped cream cheese has. ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope that you enjoy it!

    2. This probably has been addressed, but I did not see it. How long may the Snickers Dip stay in the refrigerator? May it be made the night before? I would appreciate it if you might consider answering the questions. I would like to make it tonight (2-6-21) and I apologize for the last minute query.

      Thank you.

      1. Greer – I was out of town until this morning, and am reading this now. You can for sure make this ahead and put it in the fridge. It should be A-Okay in the fridge for a couple of days afterwards, too!
