Pizza and wings are popular food items on any weekend, so when you add in the biggest sporting event in the United States, let’s just say Americans will be eating a lot of them.
According to The Wall Street Journal, over 1.25 billion wings will be eaten throughout the weekend, while approximately 4.4 million pizzas will be ordered from Pizza Hut, Domino’s and Papa John’s on Super Bowl Sunday alone.
That translates into “a lot” in scientific terms.
Surprisingly, beer sales aren’t that much higher than usual, trailing the likes of Fourth of July, Memorial and Labor Day weekends. Baby carrots and avocados, on the other hand, average their highest consumption weekends of the year.
