ESPN Is Releasing a Post-Seasoning Blend, but There’s Only One Way You Can Get Your Hands on a Bottle
The weeks leading up to the Super Bowl are the most intense for football fans everywhere. Now, however, the game-time dishes can match the post-season intensity with ESPN’s new Postseasoning spice blend. The sports network released a special spice mix consisting of salt, onion, gochugaru, garlic, paprika, black pepper, and cayenne that will be sure to kick off any tailgate or watch party platter.
The bottles are currently not for sale, but over 10,000 (which I assume to mean one for every championship Tom Brady is going to win by the time he retires) will be handed out at postseason games throughout the remainder of the NFL season.
ESPN also teamed up with James Beard Award-winning chef, pitmaster, and founder of Rodney Scott’s Whole Hog BBQ, Rodney Scott, to create a batch of recipes. So even if your team had a losing record and is nowhere near the postseason action (here’s looking at you, New York Giants!), you can still come out a winner with recipes such as the MVP (Most Valuable Pimento), Rodney Scott’s Victory Rack Ribs, Taters Gonna Tate Potato Salad, and the Hail-Mary Deviled Eggs. You can also pair the Postseasoning with any classic game day snack or favorite wing recipe.
You can check out the recipes at the dedicated site as well as tips, tricks, and a video that shows how you can pair the seasoning with brisket, mac and cheese, and … cereal. Surprised at that combination? Well, I am, too, but the Jets won more than one game this year, so stranger things have happened.
