We all know that chicken wings are the go-to food during the big game this afternoon. But it turns out that we actually eat A LOT of food on this day. In fact, the only other day of the year that American’s will eat more food than they do today, is on Thanksgiving (#foodcoma).
Here’s a breakdown of all the food that will be eaten today… and be prepared to be mind blown by how much we stuff our faces during the game. (Keep in mind these are just estimations, but give us a pretty good ballpark.)
278 million avocados. That works out to be 139 million POUNDS of avocados. 139 million glorious pounds of sweet, sweet guacamole.
(Also – lets never forget this boy who got an avocado for Christmas and was extremely happy about it — WATCH)
1.3 billion chicken wings. BILLION. Picture every single person in the US holding 4 chicken wings, that’s how many will be consumed in just one day.
Get the aspirin out (or whatever other hangover remedy you use) because you’re going to need it. It is estimated that Americans will drink 328 million gallons of beer during the game. I think us Canadian’s can do better than that, eh??
Sometimes food just taste better when someone else cooks it right? Especially during sporting events you want those mozzarella sticks to be as greasy as possible! Approximately 30% of those watching the game today will order take out. Hopefully your delivery guy is nice.
The good old potato chip. What party isn’t complete without a few half eaten bowls of chips lying around? 11.2 million pounds of chips will be eaten this afternoon!!
Look at all that! That is A LOT of food. But hey, I’m not judging. I’ll be sitting on my couching pigging out next to you.
Just expect the gym to be extraaaaa busy tomorrow morning…or afternoon. We’ll see what time I get up.
