The Big Game is coming and it will undoubtedly be a fun party filled with football, friendly rivalry and lots of food! This year’s 50th anniversary game will be in California not far from Taylor Morrison homes in Campbell and our other Bay Area homes.
The typical snack menu for Game Day includes some traditional favorites. Here are some fun facts about America’s football fare.
We love our guac, so it’s no surprise that we go through a lot of avocados, but did you know Americans will eat 120 million pounds of the creamy green treat on game day?
In the Chips
You can’t have guacamole without chips, right? On Game Day, football fans will consume 14,500 tons of chips.
The National Chicken Council says Americans are expected to devour 1.25 billion chicken wings during the Big Game. That’s the equivalent of 572 wings for every seat in all 32 NFL stadiums.
Any worthy game party has plenty of popcorn to go around. That adds up to 3.8 million pounds of popcorn—enough to fill 13,571,428 large movie theater buckets.
Americans watching the Big Game will feed on 4 million pizzas (pepperoni pizza is the favorite topping state by state). Stacked one on top of the other, that’s like 910 Leaning Towers of Pisa.
Those 99 Bottles of Beer On the Wall have nothing on Game Day, when viewers will knock back a whopping 325.5 million gallons of beer.
Nuts About You
In-Between swigs of beer, fans watching the Big Game will munch on 2.5 million pounds of nuts. Using peanuts as the model, that would make 1.8 million jars of peanut butter.
