When you have food allergies and you’re on a budget, you have to get creative. Thankfully, many grocery stores in the Western world carry gluten-free, dairy-free, and other allergy-friendly snacks that are perfect for Super Bowl parties. But many of them cost a lot of money.

So here is a compilation we made especially for you. It’s based on our original Budget-Friendly Real Food Super Bowl Snack Food list here.

The Super Bowl is an especially tricky party when you have allergies. Our typical go-to’s for the USA’s favorite football game are loaded with allergens. From the football-shaped calzones to the ranch dip on the veggie tray, it can be frustrating and demoralizing – not to mention extremely unsafe, depending on your allergies.

Budget-Friendly Allergy-Friendly Super Bowl Snacks

Groceries for food allergies can get expensive! I know this because, for many years, we were gluten-free and dairy-free. We had to figure out how to balance safety and good eating with a tight budget. We did that by focusing on simple food, avoiding imitation foods (like vegan cheese), and not buying a lot of pre-made allergy-free foods. The snacks on this list are budget-friendly because they follow those main principles.

You can make them as expensive or healthy as you like. Use organic celery or conventional. Use fresh homemade salsa or salsa from Aldi – whatever works for your budget. Remember, you are the boss of your kitchen and your food!

Allergy-Friendly Super Bowl Party Food

You can spend a lot of money on allergy-free snack food. This list includes a bunch of budget-friendly, allergy-friendly, Super Bowl party food.

Keep in mind that some of these snacks might seem weird to normal eaters. If you have food allergies, you know this is pretty normal (if I ever hear another, “ew, that’s gluten-free?!” comment it will be too soon), but it bears repeating. Not everyone will love Chocolate Peanut Butter Dessert Dip. But your allergy-free people will.

Some of these recipes have allergy-free alternatives, so if you read the main recipe and notice that it has an allergen you are avoiding in it, skip to the Recipes Notes. They will give you the allergy-free alternatives!

When dealing with life-threatening allergies, remember to read ingredients lists very carefully to ensure that the ingredients you are using do not contain hidden allergens.
