I am planning on taking a big group out for some fireworks and fun tomorrow. Trying to come up with some good finger food that is original. We often take peel and eat shrimp along with the standard chips and dips but looking for some suggestions for something different. Any suggestions?

Chicken salad sandwich's cut into triangles. good and help take the hunger edge off. plus easy to keep in the cooler or not...

Not quite original but a time tested favorite- Fried chicken strips or a bucket of fried chicken from the grocery store are a good crowd pleaser since they taste good even cold after a few hours on the water.

again no orignality points but we get the Jimmy John's party platter subs, they usually go quick and are almost bite sized

Try putting the jugs in the freezer night before. UV slushies!

No cheese crackers. Try to get the crushed ones out of the carpet and you'll know why.

Ok...How about Nacho Cheese Doritos? just try from stopping them from opening the bag once it is in the boat.

Cheetos, Grape Juice and red popsicles for dessert!


Just the normal stuff. Sandwiches, fruit, string cheese, beef jerky, fruit snacks, etc.

However, no eating on the boat. Eat on the beach! :D

I stop the orange snacks before they get to the boat.

Chips in the carpet and on the vinyl makes me work but I don't usually care. Watching kids sit on the engine cowling eating chips makes for a great weekend. We carry chips and drinks but actually go to one of the two restaurants on the water to eat. Sitting in the shade at a picnic table as a family eating great local seafood while watching the boat and boat traffic on the river. Doesn't get much better.

not oreos or chips, unless you like to vacuum.

No chocolate or drinks with color in them on my boat. Also the drinks we bring have to have a screw on top - I can't count the number of times my kids have opened a pop to have one sip and then it spills later.

At this point I was only trying to keep my nephew from coming unglued at his little sister for eating the last few chips.

You are right...times like these in the boat is what it is all about.

There are only two that seem the make it to my boat when I invite guest: Cheeto's and Dorito's, how do people know those are the worst for the boat? Eat on the swim platform.

Normally a big bag of Salami and Cheese cubes, carrots and apples. Today, fried chicken breast sandwiches, pre-cooked on hamb. buns with lettuce and lemmon-pepper Hellmans mayo. Pretzels and dip.
