Super Bowl Fun Facts

Super Bowl Sunday Fun Facts

Super Bowl XLIX

Seattle Seahawks vs. New England Patriots

It’s that time of year!  “Super Bowl Sunday” ~ the annual championship game of the NFL.  It is actually considered (by some) an unofficial American national holiday.

The trophy is made by Tiffany & Co and stands almost 22 inches tall. It is worth more than $25,000.

It’s the 2nd largest day for U.S. food consumption, after Thanksgiving Day!

Here is an estimate of what will be consumed this Sunday:

  • 1.25 billion chicken wings
  • 4.3 million pounds of pretzels
  • 11.2 million pounds of potato chips
  • 8.2 million pounds of tortilla chips with 71.4 million pounds of guacamole
  • 3.8 million pounds of popcorn
  • 2.5 million pounds of nuts
  • 325 million gallons of beer

Super Bowl Sunday is the biggest day of the year for pizza sales!

  • One out of every 12 people watching the game will be suffering through the boring football part just to see the commercials.
  • Antacid sales will increase by 20 percent on the Monday after the Super Bowl.
  • 6% of Americans will call in sick the Monday after the Super Bowl.

Who are you rooting for?
