For many, the Super Bowl is an ending to a full season of football and a time to crown a champion. For others, it’s a day to eat and watch fun commercials. Either way, people love to celebrate Super Bowl Sunday with good food.

Here are some interesting Super Bowl food facts:

• The Super Bowl is the second largest US food consumption day, only surpassed by Thanksgiving. 

• More than 1.5 billion wings will be consumed on Super Bowl weekend, according to the National Chicken Council.

• The Super Bowl is the busiest day of the year for pizza restaurants, according to the National Restaurant Association.

• Wings and pizza are the most popular snacks, but potato chips are close behind. More than 11.2 million pounds of potato chips are expected to be consumed.
