In less than 36 hours, this Sunday, an estimated 188.5 million folks will tune in to the biggest football game of the year. And whether you’re a fan of the game, the teams, the half-time show, or the commercials, one thing is certain we’ve all become fans of the food.
According to Hallmark Cards, the Big Game now represents the Number 1 at-home party event of the year, surpassing the number of parties ringing in the New Year. With more than 55 million dollars expected to be spent on food alone, after Thanksgiving, this weekend’s game is second in the amount of food consumed. And while turkeys are the main event for November, chicken wings are the go-to bites for February. The National Chicken Council estimates that 1.33 billion chicken wings will be nibbled and gnawed this Sunday alone.
And for those fans looking for a little less finger-licking mess, the Snack Food Association states that over 20 million pounds of chips will be dunked into 21 million dollars’ worth of refrigerated dips. Wowzer!!
