From over a billion chicken wings to millions of pounds of potato chips, the Super Bowl is second only to Thanksgiving when it comes to food consumption. With nearly 100 million viewers and countless watch parties across the country, the snack spreads are an integral part of the event. Whether you are a fan of chips and dip or wings and pizza, you can thank truck drivers for your favorite snack.
In preparation for the big event, thousands of truckloads of food are transported to stores in time for consumers to pick up their favorite game day treats. Here is how many truckloads it takes for some of the most common Super Bowl feasts:
- 5 million pounds of popcorn = 100 truckloads
- 28 million pounds of potato chips = 350 truckloads
- 5 million avocados = 668 truckloads
- 1 billion chicken wings = 1,562 truckloads
In addition to game day snacks, truckloads of equipment are brought to the stadium to prepare for the arrival of players and performers. Thousands of hours of work transporting both food and equipment go into preparing for the Super Bowl.
As you sit down to watch the game and enjoy some fresh guacamole or a few chicken wings, remember who makes it all possible.
