Emmi Roth USA Brings Fondue Fun to Football Parties With Unique Gadget and Game Day Pairings

(September 3, 2013 – Orangeburg, NY): Tailgates, team jerseys and touchdowns – football season is upon us, and whether you’re a bigger fan of the game or the Sunday fun-day that goes along with it, the menu plays an important role at any football party. Emmi Roth USA suggests getting guests in the zone with easy-to-make cheese fondue served in a unique new football helmet-shaped fondue pot – the Emmi Fondue Party Helmet.

Keep game day preparations simple: Emmi’s delicious Original Cheese Fondue made from imported Swiss cheese is ready to heat and eat right out of the box. Then let the dipping begin! Traditional fondue fare includes bread, veggies, meats and fruits, but you can turn up the football factor by dipping with “stadium foods” like chicken fingers, French fries, pigs in a blanket, and soft pretzels.

Whatever you dip, be sure to do it in Emmi’s new Fondue Party Helmet. The clever design means no stove is necessary – fabulous, melty fondue is ready in just 15 minutes. The helmet holds the cheese, while the facemask can be used for bread or other dipping delights. Emmi’s Fondue Party Helmet is the perfect centerpiece for any football party – and it is a hostess gift that will be talked about for seasons to come. The Fondue Party Helmet retails for $50 and can be found in the E-Shop at Emmi.com.

“Fondue is something we would like to bring to the top of people’s minds for football tailgates and parties – it’s fun and can be enjoyed by a crowd, just like America’s most popular sport,” said Linda Duwve, VP of Sales & Marketing, Emmi Roth USA, Inc. “We are excited to introduce the Emmi Fondue Party Helmet and to show how fondue can easily up anyone’s entertainment game.”

Emmi Original Fondue is based on the authentic Swiss recipe, made with premium natural Swiss cheese, white wine, a dash of Kirsch Brandy and a mixture of traditional spices. Other fondue varieties include Gorgonzola Fondue, Appenzeller Fondue and Swiss Chocolate Fondue. Emmi Roth USA also provides a wide variety of fine Swiss-style cheeses great for use in recipes or on their own. You can find Emmi cheese in the dairy or deli section at your local grocer and online at Emmi.com.
