Dana Dishes: Best and Worst Super Bowl Foods

By Dana Berlin
On February 9, 2012

As the commotion of the Super Bowl winds down and Pats fans (myself included) try to forget one of the worst losses in recent history, I want to take a look back at some of the best and worst foods I had during the game. 

No doubt it's a shame the Patriots could not pull out their fourth Super Bowl, but it's an even worse shame to show up to a Super Bowl party empty handed.  The people who show up to Super Bowl parties with no food are like the people who bum rides and don't pitch in for gas money, or the people who ask for a sip of your drink and finish the whole glass. 

What I noticed during this last Super Bowl was a lot of people showing up with nothing, and a core set of people bringing a lot.  Some of the best foods I saw during this Super Bowl were the classic cheese and pepperoni pizza, chips and dip, and mac & cheese. 

You cannot go wrong with any sort of pizza; it is usually the first thing gone off the table. Chips with any sort of dip are a good second choice, and mac & cheese can never be a bad choice. 

Some unusual and risky choices I saw for the Super Bowl were soup, vegetables, fruit, and low fat desserts.  Don't get me wrong, all these things are good foods, but they are not the first choices I would come up with. 

The Super Bowl is one of the times people don't care about diets, weight or what goes into their mouths. So, for people to put out fruits, veggies and low fat desserts, it's  a slap in the face. 

The long and short of Super Bowl party foods are this: High fat, tasty foods are a plus, while low fat, healthy foods are a bust.  Take my advice and you will always have a well-attended Super Bowl party.
