They are easy to eat and no dirty plates since guests can just pop them in their mouths.

    A warm summer day just calls for grilling. Serve up some American favorites like grilled barbecued chicken, sliders and corn on the cob at your 4th of July bash. Offer some freshly tossed salad for a refreshing taste and cool summer drinks to keep everyone happy and hydrated.
