Nothing says summer quite like a backyard I right folks? As a brand spankin’ new member of the Kraft Delicious Bytes Bloggers group, I was given the opportunity to host a backyard get together with family and friends and try some great brands that Kraft offers. As a bonus, they sent some great serving items that made my party special (and you will get to win the same exact prize pack that was sent to me to host your own awesome party!)

We had strawberry-Kiwi Kool-Aid, cheeseburgers using Velveeta slices, salad, hot dogs, smoked griller sausages, potato and macaroni salad, chips and cole slaw. I also grilled some chicken legs! We got rained out before dessert but we made mini s’mores with the Honey Maid Graham Crackers!

I highlighted the chicken that I grilled in this spread because I used the Sizzling Salads chicken dinner kit Zesty Fajita sauce on the meat. Its meant to go on chicken that actually goes in the salad but I decided to switch things up and use it as a grilling sauce alone on my chicken legs.Verdict? absolutely delicious!

Here is some info on the different products I got to try:

  • KOOL-AID New Unsweetened Peach Mango and Unsweetened Strawberry Kiwi Drink Mixes: Beat that summer heat and keep the kids happy and cool with great summer refreshment for entertaining the whole gang. New Unsweetened Peach Mango and Unsweetened Strawberry Kiwi flavors from KOOL-AID Drink Mixes are a good source of Vitamin C per serving and, most importantly to your little ones, pack the flavorful fun they expect from your best outdoor shindigs! (Peach Mango and Strawberry Kiwi flavors are also available in KOOL-AID Sugar Sweetened Drink Mix and Ready-to-Drink Jammers).
  • New COUNTRY TIME Half & Half Lemonade Drink Mix: Who could enjoy the summer’s heat without a taste of COUNTRY TIME refreshment? This season try a delicious new spin on the lemonade classic. Pour out a glass and enjoy each sip of this amazing combination of Half Lemonade and Half Iced Tea, Lemonade Iced Tea Flavored Drink Mix.  
  • VELVEETA Slices Queso Blanco:  Top a burger or your favorite sandwich with the brand new Queso Blanco flavor cheese from VELVEETA Slices for a delicious spin on a barbecue must-have. Heat it up grill-side and enjoy Queso Blanco’s creamy, mild and super melty effect!  Look for the new packaging and new pricing now available. ( I used the original slices on my burgers!)
  • KRAFT SIZZLING SALADS Southwest Chicken Dinner Kit: Talk about jazzing up a main dish! KRAFT SIZZLING SALADS are cooking sauces and salad dressings, perfectly paired to create a delicious chicken and salad dish your family and friends are sure to love!! Four easy steps, 20 minutes and you’ve answered that “what’s for dinner” question with a bang!
