And chicken wings are a football fan favorite.

"Everyone in our category is trying to move customers to boneless", Matt Friedman, founder and CEO of Wing Zone, said in November 2017.

"You know a lot of the times you're caught up with family, you've got a lot of things to do obviously on a Sunday, and you don't want to spend a whole lot of time preparing huge extravagant meals". "Chicken wings are at their highest demand level in history and will continue like that for the foreseeable future". Last year, Buffalo Wild Wings sold about 13.5 million wings for the Super Bowl and expects to beat that number this year, Nelsen said.

Buffalo Wild Wings, which has about 1,230 US locations, starts its Super Bowl preparations roughly six weeks before the game, according to Ben Nelsen, the company's vice president of operations.

And don't forget the guacamole.

It's believed American will eat 135 million pounds of avocados during the Super Bowl.

They'll be plenty of trips to the grocery store.

In 2017 Americans spent almost a $1 billion on soft drinks.

And $39 million was shelled out for the dip.

The 32-year-old Bostonian is hosting a game day party with her boyfriend and plans to cook about 80 wings for their 10 guests along with sliders, veggie burgers, a green salad and pizza. Yet that's exactly where the Herbivorous Butcher is producing game-changing meat-free selections, including beer "brats", Italian "sausages", Sriracha "brats", Cuban "pork", and hickory "bacon"-and making vegan wings especially for the Super Bowl". That lets the restaurant chain, with more than 1,000 USA locations, stock up on its key product for the busy football season, which culminates on Sunday with the Super Bowl.
