The average Super Bowl watcher will consume 1200 calories

Nobody watches the Super Bowl on an empty stomach, and here are some other facts for you to digest:

The average number of people at a Super Bowl Party is 17*—only five percent of the TV audience watches the game by themselves—so, whether it's pot luck, take out, home cooking or catered, nobody is going to go home hungry .

Super Bowl Sunday ranks behind only Thanksgiving as the biggest food consumption day of the year in the United States** and the proof is in the Pepsid. There is a 20 percent increase in antacid sales in the 24 hours after the game***.

For some, the food and drink take an additional "Excessive Celebration" toll. About six percent of American workers will call in sick on Monday.****

Halloween may be costumes and candy, Thanksgiving turkey, Valentine's and Mother's Day flowers, the 4th of July fireworks, but if you're hosting a party on Super Bowl Sunday, you damn well better make sure you cover the spread!

And here are my Top Ten Essential Super Bowl Foods for doing just that.
