Best 10 Bingo-Themed Goodies
Most people don’t have to worry about going to an event, but home cooks know that every event, no matter how big or small, is an opportunity to break the pans out and get cooking – even if the event is just bingo night!
You might think that bingo night isn’t anything to get excited about, and that the oldies who attend bingo night won’t really mind munching on simple snacks, but this couldn’t be farther from the truth. In the past few years, bingo has seen a rather significant resurgence. The game has even reportedly been attracting a much younger crowd, thanks to celebrities like Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan advertising the game in their cafes and restaurants, and the game’s transition onto mobile phones and the internet.
Of course, that’s not to say that older generations aren’t still playing bingo. Women still make up 80% of bingo players, with the typical bingo player being a 38-year old woman. This has prompted even Iceland Foods – a supermarket chain based in the U.K. – to venture into the world of online bingo as well. At the launch of the site, CEO Malcolm Walker said, ”we are excited to take our popular consumer brand into the world of online bingo , which is something we know that many of our customers enjoy. Now mums – and dads – can come to Iceland Bingo too.”
Bingo night offers a great opportunity to practice preparing food for large crowds, and when done right, great food could turn the event into a memorable experience! Take Farmhouse Rules chef Nancy Fuller for example, whose bingo night at the community center turned into a lovely dinner thanks to her farm-fresh vegetable salads and honey-glazed ham sandwiches.
If you’re heading to your own bingo night, you might want to prepare your own bingo-themed treats. Here are some of the most amazing bingo goodies found online:
