Where is this Superb Owl everyone keeps talking about? Everywhere we look, all we find are mentions of “The Big Game” for some reason!
Since we couldn’t find anything (let alone statistics) about the elusive Superb Owl, we’ll have to settle with what we did find about “The Big Game” this coming Sunday, and some of the facts are absolutely nuts!
Everybody knows football is nothing without a great tailgate (or party), and no tailgate is complete without a plethora of delicious eats! So, when it comes to “The Big Game”, it’s no surprise that people’s motto for the food spread is, “Go big or go home!”
To put things in perspective, it’s said that the average viewer will spend over $80 on food, decorations, and fan gear just for game day! Considering previous years where more than 100 million people tuned in, that means well over $8,000,000,000 (that’s BILLION) will be spent by viewers preparing for the big day! (WHAT-A-YA NUTS?!)
All of this adds up to “Superb Owl” Sunday being the second largest day for food consumption in the USA!
Restaurants can anticipate a busy day as more than 48 million Americans are expected to order food for takeout or delivery!
Domino’s alone expects to sell more than 11 million slices of pizza and 3 million chicken wings!
3 million chicken wings is chump change though when compared to the amount Americans as a whole are expect to eat. Some estimates say we consume 1.3 billion chicken wings during the game (What-A-Ya Nuts?!), which comes out to about 162.5 million pounds!
While pizza and wings are definitely the staple food for game day, they aren’t alone in the mass consumption department. Overall, Americans will consume:
- 11.2 million pounds of potato chips
- Over 55,200 hot dogs (thats about 5,000 lbs) JUST AT THE STADIUM!
- 51.7 million cases of beer
- 8 million pounds of guacamole
- 2.5 million pounds of peanuts, cashews, pistachios or other tree nuts
If those numbers don’t make you go, “What-A-Ya Nuts?!” then maybe this will: all of these facts lead up to the average fan consuming 1200 calories and 50 grams of fat from snacks!
If you’re like us, reading all those facts do more than make you scream, “What-A-Ya Nuts?!” They make your head spin & stomach hurt already! That’s why we’ve also decided to provide some #Better4U alternatives to your classic favorites.
Love the buffalo wings, but hate the fat? Try these absolutely delicious buffalo cauliflower bites instead!
Buffalo cauliflower bites not a good enough substitute for you and the crew? As another alternative for making a #Better4U wing, try baking them this year instead of frying!

There’s a beer out there for every flavor, and we guarantee you won’t regret it!
