Food Facts From the Super Bowl Will Blow Your Mind

Super Bowl Food

Vivid Seats

Super Bowl parties are the next best thing from actually being at the big game. Everyone knows “the spread” is awesome at Super Bowl parties, so if you’re planning on hosting one, be ready to spend a hefty sum on the grub. If you’ve hosted or attended an epic Super Bowl party, you know what we’re talking about. However, the facts about exactly how much of each food goes where will absolutely blow your mind. We appreciate our partners from Vivid Seats from providing the graphic above that illustrates the following:

Every year during the Super Bowl, 69.6 million pounds of avocados are consumed. Don’t like avocados? You’re not alone, but you probably eat some sort of food that contains them.

On the day of Super Bowl XLVI in 2012, approximately two million pizzas were consumed and it’s same to assume most of them were larges or bigger.

How about 14,500 tons of potato chips or 4,000 tons of popcorn? That’s a lot of salt!

Who can forget the wings? Last year, 100 million pound of wings (1.25 billion wings) were cleaned by Super Bowl viewers.

Now for the good stuff. On average, 49.2 million cases of beer are sold every year on the day of the Super Bowl, which is easy to see as it’s the typical drink of choice for football fans. The next morning is rough on those folks, though, as anti-acid sales typically see around a 20 percent increase.

And of course, who can forget the bums? A whopping six percent of Super Bowl viewers call in sick the next day. Maybe there’s a new day that deservers the title “Black Monday.”
