I’m sure you’ve heard the quote, “Though we may be far apart, a family is always close at heart.” It holds true for our families. Becky and I both grew up in a small town outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. After graduating from college and getting married, we moved to North Carolina and started our family. My parents stayed in PA, but our other family members dispersed to many different areas. It’s up to us to find ways to connect, even though we are 400 miles apart.
The first thing that we started doing was watching football games together.
Every game day starts the same for us. We wake up to the sound of a text on our phones – it’s my mother-in-law sending some sort of “Quiz” or “Game” link to our entire family. We all start taking it and within a few hours, everyone’s results are in.
Meanwhile, I know that while my family is putting on our black & gold attire here in North Carolina, our family in PA, Delaware, Mississippi, South Carolina, and Florida are all doing the same thing.
The next text to go out to our group is sent from my phone. It’s the “Video Chat” link that allows everyone to join the same video chat as one big group. That’s when we know It’s almost game time!
We gather our families and grab our favorites things: SNICKERS® Minis, M&M’S® candies, and SKITTLES® Original candies.
Soon, everyone joins the video-chat. One by one, we watch as the faces of our family pop onto the screen. Our families might be 400 or more miles from one another, but for the next four hours, we’re together.
The last thing that I do is send a link to join me in a game of Candy Call It™. SNICKERS®, M&M’S® and SKITTLES® candies, Official Candy Sponsors of Super Bowl LV, bring more fun to your Big Game party.
I send the link to CandyCallIt.com to our family members that are on the video-chat, along with my friends that couldn’t be with us for the game. This guarantees that even if we can’t get together in person right now, we can still have fun interacting during the game. It’s something we can look forward to each week.

To bring it into the homes of our friends, we wanted to give them a “Football Candy Call It™ Gift Basket.” We made them at home & left them on the porches of our local family & friends.
How to assemble the Football Candy Call It™ Package:
- Find a basket
- Pick up a bag of SNICKERS® Minis, M&M’S® candies, and SKITTLES® Original candies.
- Add in other football-themed favors to make it even more fun!
I printed off the football games that I have on my website, like this “Pin the football on the player game.”
The kids colored them & I cut them out.
I added in our favorite bags of candy.
I added water bottles and wrapped them in these Football water bottle wraps that you can print here.
We added some brownie mix in a mason jar and some brownie toppers that you can print here.
Lastly, I made these Social-Distance High Fives (you can print them out here). The kids glued craft sticks to the back & every time that someone played CandyCallIt, or anytime our team scored, they waved their high-fives at the screens.
These Football Candy Call It™ Baskets and the Candy Call It™ game are just a few fun ways to connect with our family and friends, even when we can’t be with them. To get in on the action and learn how to play, visit www.candycallit.com. No purchase necessary. Must be 16+. #CandyCallIt
