Food For Thought: Everything's Peachy

Posted by Annette Bellisari on

Just like our love for food, our love for Ohio State Football runs deep and so does the Bellisari family legacy that goes with it. The Peach Bowl is a long-standing tradition as well, with its beginnings way back in the 1960s.

Ohio State’s appearance in this year’s Peach Bowl will be its first-ever appearance in this particular bowl, which has been held since 1968 but traditionally featured annual matchups between SEC and ACC schools until it became part of the New Year’s Six when the College Football Playoff (CFP) was established in 2014. In the previous two seasons that the Peach Bowl hosted a CFP semifinal game (2016 and 2019), Ohio State appeared in the other semifinal at the Fiesta Bowl.

As the No. 4 seed in this year’s CFP, however, the Buckeyes will be heading to Atlanta to face Georgia who gets to play its semifinal game in its home state as the No. 1 seed. Even though they’re playing in Georgia, it’s thought that there’ll be just as many OSU fans as there are Georgia fans in the stadium and around the stadium as well. Ohio State fans are well-known for traveling to support their team and there are many OSU football fans in every part of the country.

Another thing that OSU fans are well-known for is their tailgating prowess! Whether actually attending a game or watching at home, setting out a delicious, bowl-worthy spread has never been easier, and we have the perfect recipe for the Peach Bowl. Our newest product just happens to be Harvest Ginger Peach Spread. This bold combination of sweetness from tree-ripened peaches, the spice of ginger, and the subtleness of other spices creates a unique flavor in this versatile spread suitable for all occasions. 

Can you think of a better food to serve during the Peach Bowl?!? 🍑😋 This recipe is not only perfect for a Peach Bowl “theme,” but it’s also super easy and delicious. You literally just open the jar, pour the luscious Harvest Ginger Peach Spread over a wheel of brie, and bake for about 5 minutes. Could anything be easier? ( (Find this and many other easy recipes on our website!) We’re even making this recipe easier on the pocketbook as well with Bellisari’s Harvest Ginger Peach Spread currently being on sale for “buy one/get one free!” Our BOGO offer is perfect if you’re attending a game-viewing party. Use one to make our Harvest Ginger Peach Brie and take one to give as a host gift. Done and done! Perfection!
