About a quarter of Americans, in spite of the pandemic and governmental restrictions will still host Super Bowl parties next weekend. Hey, it’s not like the Patriots are in the game this year. This is a national survey, not regional.  It would be safe to assume that people in Tampa Bay and Kansas City would be stretching more rules than the rest of us.

It’s not a Super Bowl party, whether it’s just the people you live with or you’re having people over, without food. Booze too, but we’ll leave that for another day.

Not sure what you’re eating next Sunday, but there is no contest what the majority of us are eating.

When it comes to food, the prediction is that even with smaller Super Bowl parties this year, as a country we are still projected to eat a record number of chicken wings.

Remember gorging was meant to be done alone. Once a few years ago when on a vacation in Canada, I met up with 2 of my brothers for lunch at a bar that was famous for chicken wings. Waitress was taking the order and the first brother ordered dozens of wings. Enough for the table in my eyes, but no that was just the number he wanted. “Don’t mess with my food”.

So according to the National Chicken Council, wings are the most popular Super Bowl food in 49 of 50 states. Hold on. Who’s the holdout? Ready? The only state in America where Chicken Wings are not at Number one on the list of most popular Super Bowl food is Maine. Most popular here is lobster. Seriously? Guess I’ve never been invited to that Super Bowl party. Who serves lobster at their party? Nice. Go Patriots.
