Super Bowl Sunday Food Facts

As we prepare for Super Bowl parties and such, I came across these interesting facts on food consumption on the big day.  What do you have going on?  Are you hosting a party…or going to one?



Americans eat almost 15-thousand tons of chips and four-thousand tons of popcorn during the Super Bowl. If you lined up each and every chip, you would produce a trail almost 293-thousand miles long. Meanwhile, a popcorn string consisting of all that popcorn would ring the Earth almost five and a half times. More after the jump:

7-Eleven claims a whopping 20 percent increase in sales of antacid the day after the Super Bowl.

Statistics show that six percent of all working Americans will call in sick the day after the Super Bowl.

Fans spend more than 50-million dollars on food during the four days of Super Bowl weekend.

Fans at the game will eat five-thousand pounds of hot dogs. If you laid those hotdogs end-to-end, they would stretch more than five miles.

Vendors will serve one-thousand cases of peanuts at the game. Stacked on top of each other, those cases would be much taller than the Empire State Building in New York City.

Nearly one in eight or 13 percent of Americans order takeout/delivery food from a restaurant for a Super Bowl gathering.

The most popular choices of takeout or delivery items on Super Bowl Sunday are pizza, chicken wings and subs or sandwiches.
