Snippet of insight from Tyabji Sr. As per The Wall Street Journal page D1, dated Thursday, February 2, these are the projections for what Americans will eat during Sunday’s game:
100 million pounds of Chicken Wings – 1.25 billion wings.
43.2 million pounds of tortilla chips – 96 Statues of Liberty.
13.2 million pounds of pretzels – 1,173 NFL teams (45 players averaging 250 pounds each).
71.4 million pounds of avocados – guacamole is a must!
111 million gallons of beer – enough to fill 168 Olympic sized swimming pools.
4.4 million pizza pies – more than five pizzas for every man, woman and child in Indianapolis .
Lastly, 25% higher carrot consumption on Super Bowl Sunday. Editorial comment – this statistic proves that many women watch the Super Bowl, since no real man would eat carrots!!
23% eat chicken wings; 14% eat pizza.
