The Super Bowl is the second largest day of the year for food consumption next to Thanksgiving. 8 million pounds of guacamole, dipped into by 14,500 tons of chips are expected to be consumed on game day. Next to chips and dip, chicken is the second most popular game food - an estimated 1 billion chicken hot-wings and nuggets will be served.
