On Sunday, February 2nd, 2020, the two best teams in the NFL will go head-to-head in the winner-takes-all game known as the Super Bowl. Unless you’re one of the lucky few to score tickets to the main event (which start at around $4,000), you’re more than likely hosting or attending a Super Bowl party to watch the game.
Super Bowl parties are the best. Getting all your friends and family together in one place, choosing a team to back or root against is great fun. And that’s even before you get to watch and discover if the half-time entertainment ends up becoming a memorable moment (Janet and Justin) or a complete flop. Perhaps best of all is enjoying the range of delicious snacks which accompany the game.
Whether you love nachos, crackers, cookies or candy, Super Bowl Sunday is a great excuse to eat all the most delicious things you can think of while enjoying a spectacle of a game at the same time. It’s perhaps unsurprising then that this day is second only to Thanksgiving in terms of food consumed in the United States.
To ensure you’ve got everything you need to host a successful party, we’ve put together a selection of some essential Super Bowl snacks. What’s best about our range is that almost every choice requires next to no preparation, meaning these snacks are ideal if you don’t want to cook or you’re in need of some last-minute options for your spread.
