Chicken Wings Have Been Dethroned By This Cheesy Bite As The Top Football Snack
The Super Bowl is set to air on Feb. 7, which means it's almost to cheer on your favorite team, while also scarfing down your favorite game day snacks. Having all the tastiest dishes spread out during your viewing party is a must, since Super Bowl Sunday is all about indulging in dips, chips, and apps. This year, ordering in is probably your best bet for your game-watch snacking, so `DoorDash dropped a Game Day Food Trends report that gives a snapshot of the most popular eats for football fans across the country. DoorDash's Super Bowl 2021 Game Day Food Trends reveal a surprising top bite.
The brand released its Game Day Food Trend report on Jan. 26, revealing the eating habits of Americans during football Sundays from the period of Sept. 13, 2020 through Jan. 10, 2021. The data was compiled using a national general population survey of 1,000 Americans, and captures both the top snack picks by state and nationwide.
According to DoorDash Game Day data, wings are no longer the most ordered food during game day in America, which might surprise many chicken-loving football fans. In its place, mozzarella sticks was actually the most popular snack and topped the list of Top 20 Game Day Eats nationwide, beating out boneless wings, which took second place. Rounding out the top 10 eats are chips and salsa, caesar salad, pepperoni pizza, fried pickles, chocolate chip cookies, Philly cheesesteak, egg rolls, and curly fries.
There were also plenty of interesting takeaways from the Top 10 Game Day Foods per state. Arkansas' top food was Texas toast, which is thick-cut bread that's buttered on both sides and cooked until golden. There were also plenty of seafood picks — in Colorado, crab rangoon took first place, while fans in Connecticut ordered salmon most often on game day. Of course, cheesy snacks are always popular for game day. Iowans opted for cheese curds, Georgians preferred macaroni and cheese, and Idahoans chowed down on cheeseburgers.
