The Indian Premier League aka IPL season is finally here after a lot of speculation and wait and we can't wait to see who lifts the trophy. The IPL finally kick-started in the UAE on 19th September and is all set to go on till 10th November. Needless to say, fans are cheering for their favourite teams, and because it seems a little tough to hit the restaurants and pubs this time a lot of us would be watching it from our homes. The adrenaline rush when Dhoni hits a sixer or when RCB surprisingly wins the match and when Tewatia goes on to smash the boundaries cannot be described in words. IPL and lip smacking snacks go hand in hand and what even is a cricket match without munching on tasty food. We've got you covered with 10 amazing snack ideas to make every match memorable.

Popcorn has been the screen buff's favorite right from the PVR when we could easily go to the cinema halls to watch the latest movies to the TV screen in front of the houses' TV in the corona season when we're all locked down in our houses. While popcorn has been undergoing transitions, we have known butter popcorn, salted popcorn but caramelized popcorn isn't that a new term for the foodies. Caramelized popcorn is the tastiest version of this snack and is made from sugar or jaggery and obviously is indeed a sweet tooth.

Kebab is a very famous Indian snack which is also eaten in foreign countries. It comes in both vegan and non vegan cuisines and is indeed a lavish snack to munch on during the IPL season. It's not very very hard to make, not too expensive. So for customers, it's cheap, delicious, different and easy to eat.

Having a party, feeling blue, passed an exam or just bored, Pizza is the one solution for all events so why leave it uneaten during IPL 2020.

The fact that pizza comes in all shapes and sizes and all flavors make it our favorite. So wait for the next match and order or home bake your favorite cheese burst pizza.
Chocolate needs no introduction. It is something which no one says a no to and is found everywhere. Chocolate is known to trigger dopamine or the happiness hormone. Whether you are feeling happy or low, dealing with cramps or mood swings, chocolate is the perfect food to resort to. Dark chocolate is considered very healthy since it has more amounts of cacao and lesser quantity of sugar as compared to mild chocolate. You can stock up varieties of chocolates and finish them before IPL season ends on 10th November.
Coffee can never go out of trend. It has always been a part of our lives, all day every day, we can't let go of it. Even when on a normal balanced diet or a specific dietary regime such as the Keto Diet, coffee has paved its way. Cappuccino, Frappuccino, Classic Coffee, Mocha, Espresso and the list is endless.
