JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Feb. 3, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The biggest event in football is almost upon us, and fans everywhere are getting ready. Couches and big-screen TVs are being positioned perfectly in living rooms, and party plans are being finalized. And when families and friends finally gather to watch the season-ending game, the million-dollar commercials, and the halftime show, they will also feast on snacks. Lots of snacks.
Last year, Americans spent billions on snack foods and beverages, including:
- $2.3 billion on alcoholic beverages, including beer, wine, and liquor
- $500 million on chips,
- $82 million on chicken wings,
- and $71 million on cheese snacks.
Not only is that a massive chunk of money, but it's also a ton of calories.
