The Most Popular Super Bowl Grub in the US is NOT What You’d Expect.

And What Do New Englanders Love the Most?

It’s less than a month until the Super Bowl, so if you’re planning your party, you might want to add MEATBALLS to the list.

BidOnEquipment.com looked at Google data to compile a list of the most popular grub for Super Bowl parties.

And somehow they found that America’s TOP CHOICE is meatballs.

The rest of the Top 10 is: Guacamole . . . chips and salsa . . . tater tots . . . chili . . . buffalo wings . . . hummus . . . nachos . . . pigs in a blanket . . . and spinach artichoke dip.

Pizza didn’t make the cut, but maybe that’s because a lot of people munch on finger foods and snacks.

In a poll, 70% of people say they mainly eat appetizers on Super Bowl Sunday. And 74% say they make their own food for the game, rather than ordering.

Certain foods were only popular in individual states.

People in Delaware like to serve up crab balls.

In Arkansas fried pickles are a favorite. (OMG these are the BEST EVER.)

Floridians love guacamole.

And people living in Oregon can’t get enough of sweet potato fries. (Who can?)

Say what you will about football, but the Super Bowl is must-see TV in the US.

More than 4 in 5 (83%) people are planning to tune into the Big Game this year, and all those people are planning on chowing down.

Nearly 3 in 4 (74%) are planning to make food at home, while 1 in 4 (26%) are ordering out from restaurants, according to BidonEquipment.com

70% of people surveyed admitted they mainly eat appetizers on Super Bowl Sunday, and 1 in 10 shared they usually drink a lot instead of eating food. Nearly 1 in 5 (19%) confessed they normally drink too much, and more than 2 in 5 (41%) shared they often overeat while watching the big game.

Others turn to something other than food and drinks: cannabis. Nearly 1 in 6 (14%) plan on smoking cannabis during the Super Bowl, and 7% plan on consuming cannabis edibles.

So what will New Englanders eat on the day of the big game? Here’s the breakdown.
