The Super Bowl is a very exciting day for sports fans (and this year, Taylor Swift fans too). But for many of us, it's not about who wins and loses, which pop stars attend, or even which ads surprise us with our favorite actors. No, the Super Bowl is all about the snack table. And this year, there are plenty of viral food trends centered around the big game to try.
Before jumping into the must-try snacks and appetizers, remember that some ingredients might be a bit pricier this Super Bowl Sunday: The cost of food at home has risen 1.3% in the past year, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. And food at bars and restaurants has risen by 5.2%. Don’t be shocked if—or when—your grocery bill is higher than you remember.
Chicken wings are always a game day classic. As the San Francisco 49ers face off against the Kansas City Chiefs, Americans are expected to devour 1.45 billion pounds of wings, according to the National Chicken Council.
This year, TikTok creators are putting their own spins on the classic appetizer. Instead of just slathering the chicken in buffalo sauce (although there's nothing wrong with that), get some fresh ideas from your For You Page.
Spice up your wings with this creamy cajun garlic sauce created by @cookwithnitha: Melt together a stick of butter, garlic paste, salt, pepper, paprika, heavy cream, and parsley, and be prepared for guests to ask for the recipe. For a fun fusion take, you can't go wrong with @southernvibin's smoked pizza wings, a twist easily accomplished by layering on pizza sauce, cheese and pepperoni on top of your wings while they cook.
