The teams and fans aren't the only ones who eagerly look forward to the Super Bowl. Super Bowl Sunday is also a favorite day of restaurants, bars, and food retailers. A long television program, plus a gathering of friends of family equals lots of food being eaten. Only Thanksgiving surpasses Super Bowl Sunday for one-day food consumption in America, according to the American Institute of Food Distribution.

- 1.3 billion chicken wings
- 11.2 million pounds of potato chips
- 139 million pounds of avocados
- 8.2 million pounds of tortilla chips
