If you are a college basketball fan like me, chances are that you are stoked for March Madness as much as I am! If you're unaware of March Madness, let me fill you in. March Madness is the popular term for the NCAA Division I men’s and women’s basketball tournament. Like any big game, it tends to bring many fans together and create new memories during the occasion. While cheering on your favorite teams, your watch party is incomplete without delicious food. Normally, foods like chicken wings and pizza (more on this in a bit) will be the go-to for sporting events, just look at the Super Bowl. Any food item that you choose to go with will keep you engaged (and full) during the March Madness games, that are in play until April 8. You may be wondering if there are any deals for the special occasion. Well, you are in luck, here’s a list of the best food deals for March Madness.
