Five over-the-top Seahawks food tributes

We told you earlier about Seahawks-friendly takeout options for the big game. But Super Bowl fever has taken over the creative menus of everyone from baristas to bakers and brunchers (and corporations too, but for a good cause.) Who could have imagined house-made blue and white sprinkles from Parfait on a Seahawks ice cream sundae kit, or “Beast Mode” sausages — flavored with Skittles — from Puyallup’s Blue Max Meats?

Here are five 12th Man over-the-top tributes:

Starting Friday, blue and green “Champion Chips” with salsa will be available at participating outlets of Renton-based Taco Time. On Sunday, they’ll be free for dine-in customers.

Who needs to pick out the blue and green Skittles? The candy company behind Marshawn Lynch’s favorites has issued a limited-edition Skittles Seattle Mix in the team colors. They won’t be sold in stores, but will be available through “surprise giveaways” in town. A few packs will also be available in an online auction over here, with proceeds benefiting Lynch’s charitable foundation.

Hawks fan Rachel Munoz, a manager at Assembly Hall Juice & Coffee, put together an impromptu latte tribute with steamed milk on Wednesday morning. They’re a little too labor-intensive to be added to the regular menu, but you can order a 12th Man Mocha with a chocolate Seahawks logo.

The Sunday brunch at Barking Frog (we reviewed the place last week) will include a “Beast Mode” waffle with (you guessed it) Skittles in the waffle and blue & green whipped butter.

Renowned pie-baking teacher Kate McDermott isn’t even a football fan, but she found herself caught up in the excitement of the game with a 12th Man pie. While she doesn’t sell her own creations, she did reach out to all the area’s pie shops to suggest a karma-boosting collective tribute to “our hometown boys” with 12th Man creations, perhaps using green apples and blueberries. For her own contribution, she’s following this rule: “Since Kate has not watched any of this season’s Seahawks winning games and has made pies on Seahawks winning game days, Kate should not watch the Seahawks game this weekend but continue to make pies on game day.”

Special bonus: Looking for more recipes for home parties? We put together a list of Times-tested recipes over here, but the creative team at Seattle-based Allrecipes also created a hilarious winner of a snack-down.
