Father’s Day for Foodies

We asked the dad’s at Spud what they wanted for Father’s Day…

And we will say, the answers were… interesting. It looks a lot like a grocery order a college kid would put together, or what dads would eat at a bachelor party. Our takeaway? Keep it simple – according to the dads at Spud, most dads would be ecstatic to receive chips, beer, chocolate milk, and maybe a piece of locally raised meat to grill. Here are our top picks to make a delicious Father’s Day dinner!

BBQ Favourites

Top Grass Alberta Beef

Grass-fed Alberta Beef is enough said according to our store manager David. An easy winner for any Father’s Day dinner!

Monster Crunch Chili Crisp Sauce

“This stuff is amazing! We literally put this sauce on everything now. Roasty, toasty, garlicky, and crunchy with a touch of spice”

Other favourites: Rossdown Farms Whole Organic Chicken, Triple Smoke Foods Beer Can Chicken 


Ernest Whisky Hazelnut Icecream

“Very under-rated flavour. Roasted hazelnut crunch mixed with a sweet whiskey cream. So good.”

Neal Bros Organic Mexican Street Corn Chips

“Family Favourite! Just the right amount of spice and they are organic. Super tasty and reminds us of Sunny family vacations in Mexico. Delicious!”

Other Favourites: Ready-to-bake croissants


Top Pick: Non-Alcoholic Gin & Tonic

These are refreshing and taste great! I can enjoy on weekdays and still drive the kid to football practice. All the taste with none of the headaches. Cheers!

Other favourites: Avalon Organic Chocolate Milk, Fernwood Blend Medium Roast Coffee – Pair these together to make your dad a morning mocha!
