From real well-loved Wyoming places, these tastes are all pure Cowboy State - just the ones that may make family and friends not want to be around you for hours.

1. The name of a Casper company is Mary Ann’s Beans, but it’s known for some bean soup mixes, or how about Mary Ann’s Spinach Cheese Ball and Dip Mix? Perfect for a Super Bowl party! Just mix the seasoning packet with 1 1/2 cups sour cream along with 1/2 cup of mayonnaise (or you can use plain yogurt). Do a bread bowl, or just serve with pretzels, crackers, etc... Tip: If your Super Bowl party is large, get plenty, or these great attractions won’t last.

2. Chugwater Chili was founded by some ranch families who together bought the recipe of a Wyoming State Fair chili champion. Chugwater Chili sells that same recipe in a mix, for a real Cowboy State taste. Servings are single to the more party friendly Chili Tub. Just add meat.

3. Did someone say meat? In downtown Cody, the Wyoming Buffalo Company is well known for their smoked summer sausages. Bison, elk, venison salami and sausages are favorites, but see new things in their online store, like jerky, snacks and candy. (Check out the chocolate covered sunflower seeds!)

4. Sevenfold Spice of Casper spice mixes will help you prepare food like a pro and bring out flavors. Their website's Chef’s Tips has great common sense - when grilling a burger just poke a hole through the middle of the patty. That prevents the burger from bulging and allows it to cook evenly, and then there's no need to press down on the burger while grilling. It also keeps juices from escaping.

5. Ever heard of Pig Candy? If not, it’s okay to say, “No, but I like the sound of it already.” It’s spiced candied bacon, made by the folks at well known Jackson Hole restaurant Cafe Genevieve. You can buy it directly from their site in 4 oz. or 8 oz. bags. Bacon candy? Oh yeah, why the heck not!
