Even though we live in the South, eventually Fall rolls in each year and there’s just something about the cooler weather that I love. I love putting on my favorite sweatshirt and having cozy nights in with my family. I was excited to enjoy some wonderful fall foods as part of the Fall Foods Babbleboxx.
If you’re looking for some ways to enjoy warm food and good company, check out some of what we’ve been enjoying in our house.

COZY FALL FOODS
One of my favorite things to do with my family during cooler weather is movie night. I like to put together a pot of soup or chili for dinner, pop some popcorn, and enjoy some of our favorite treats while we spend time together.
If you’re a fan of family movie night and popcorn is on your must-have list, I highly recommend trying the new Orville Redenbacher’s Pop Kits! They are game-changers.
If you crave the flavor and nostalgia of stovetop popcorn, a Pop Kit is a perfect solution! Each package comes with everything you need — whole-grain popcorn, oil, and salt.
The packages are pre-portioned, so all you have to do is put them in a pot on the stove and pop some delicious popcorn!
It’s so easy to make!
The Movie Theater Butter Popcorn has the buttery flavor you expect from Orville Redenbacher and pairs perfectly with sweet treats.
We tried this one first and my family ate it up so quickly, I barely got any! The balance of salt and butter flavor was so good.
There are approximately 3 servings in each Pop Kit so a kit or two should work well for your next movie night.
The Simply Salted Orville Redenbacher’s Pop Kit is one of my new favorite snack options. It’s so easy to make. All I have to do is cut, pour, and pop!
With no artificial preservatives or flavors, the 100% whole grain popcorn is a great option for my family to enjoy.
Movie nights are some of our favorite things to do in the fall but I also like to take advantage of our weekend nights to cook meals we all enjoy.
Hunt’s Tomatoes are definitely staples in my pantry this time of year. As part of the Fall Foods Babbleboxx, we received Hunt’s Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes in a new size and the new Hunt’s Basil Garlic & Oregano Stewed Tomatoes.
Hunt’s Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes are perfect for when we make tacos. They’re a great addition to our toppings bar and I love the flavor of them because they are vine-ripened, picked at the peak of ripeness, and then fire-roasted.
Since they’re diced, they also work great for tacos with less prep for me! The new larger 28 oz size is great for making larger recipes like soup and chili. But it’s also great if you want to use the tomatoes for more than one meal!
I used the rest of the can of our Hunt’s Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes and our can of the new Hunt’s Basil Garlic & Oregano Stewed Tomatoes to make a batch of chili with a bit of a twist.
We enjoy chili in our house, especially during cooler months. It’s easy to make and leftovers are delicious too. I have a fairly ordinary way to make chili (if you don’t mind beans) but recently saw someone make an Italian chili.
Hunt’s Basil Garlic & Oregano Stewed Tomatoes are absolutely perfect for doing an Italian take on chili. I used the rest of our Fire Roasted Tomatoes and the Stewed Tomatoes along with the beans I found in the pantry to whip up this dinner. The Stewed Tomatoes are seasoned with a blend of classic Italian spices: basil, garlic, and oregano which gave the chili a good base to work with.
You can tweak your own flavors with the seasonings you used. I had some Italian seasoning in my pantry so I used it with a bit of onion powder. I also recommend draining the tomatoes and using the liquid in your chili. I drained the Stewed Tomatoes so I could chop them into smaller pieces to go with the diced tomatoes a bit better.
Hunt’s Basil Garlic & Oregano Stewed Tomatoes are also vine-ripened, picked at the peak of ripeness, and then naturally steam peeled. I think they would be great in pasta and soups! I can’t wait to try them in more recipes this fall and winter.
If you’re looking for cozy side dishes for fall that are also simple to make, Success Rice is definitely a brand to keep in your pantry!
I’m a huge fan of boil-in-bag rice because it makes cooking rice quick and easy. All you have to do is put the bag in the water, cook for about 10 minutes, and have soft and fluffy rice to enjoy with your meal.
I use Success Boil-in-Bag Jasmine Rice when I make stir-fry at home. I’ve always enjoyed its fluffy texture and sweet aroma. Sometimes I make Thai food at home and the Jasmine Rice is my first choice. I’ve been known to just enjoy a serving on its own too!
It’s also naturally Gluten-Free, Non-GMO Project Verified, and free of MSG or preservatives.
This was the first time I’ve had the opportunity to try the Success Boil-in-Bag Tri-Color Quinoa. Quinoa is a whole grain that is full of protein, fiber and contains all nine essential amino acids. The tri-color quinoa looks like the perfect fall side dish too.
Whether you use the boil-in-bag products to make a side dish or for recipes like rice bowls, Success helps make fall cooking easy while offering pantry staples that can be used in a wide variety of recipes.
Dessert is not to be forgotten during the fall!
Reddi-Wip Zero Sugar adds a pop of sweetness to everything from a cup of hot chocolate to fresh fruit. It has 0 grams of sugar, 0 carbs, and 15 calories per serving. (Not a low calorie food.)
I love that real dairy cream is the first ingredient. Reddi-Wip Zero Sugar contains no artificial flavors, is gluten-free, and is keto-friendly. The creamy, whipped topping adds a touch of joy and makes everything yummy and fun!
