Super Bowl 50 has a nice ring to it! So do the stats — the fun food facts that is — which predict another year of record food consumption when it comes to celebrating on the day of the Big Game. Last year’s numbers (1.23 billion chicken wings and 14 million hamburgers) are sure to keep up Super Bowl Sunday’s ranking as the second biggest American feast day of the year after Thanksgiving.
It’s great to be
an American — even if you only watch the game for the commercials! Most of us watch the game at home with family
and friends with an average of 17 in attendance. A mere 3% choose to share the night at a
local bar — which explains the staggering sales of some 50 million cases on game
day alone. (24 beers in a case
multiplied by 50 million? I don’t think I could even compute that figure.)
If this year’s party is on your home turf,
approach the quasi-holiday the same way you do any food-focused gathering. Give yourself the home field advantage with premium
tools to insure a constant flow of easily prepared crowd-pleasing foods to
serve a crowd!
For many households, this is the one time of the year where men take the lead in the planning. To be sure and he’ll look like the man in charge, the KAF Home Utility Half Apron suits him up in classic chef-style — a perfect complement to his team jersey.
This meat cut apron is another strong statement at the grill.
Premium barbecue accessories allow you to enjoy the game and the sizzling sidelines competition amongst friends and family. Invest in Man Law BBQ: 5-Piece BBQ Wood Handle Tool Set to build a strong “bench” of barbecue and entertaining tools.
The five-piece set delivers all the gadgets for every trick on the grill for safe flipping, grabbing, basting and spearing. The attractive, long wooden handles look great hanging from the grill and provide the perfect leverage and length from the heat for easy tending with one eye on the game! The built in bottle opener keeps everyone hydrated (contributing to the annual beer consumption).
With the average of 17 at your Super Bowl gathering, add the Man Law BBQ Hamburger Basket for even grilling in convenient sets of four patties. The chrome plated iron wire basket keeps the burgers in place and the rounded, premium wood handle allows for an easy and safe hand-off to the second string chef when your team is in the end zone.
This year’s must-have
grill accessory is the Man Law BBQ Wing Rack which makes it easy to understand how the chicken wing consumption
tops a billion! The heavy gauge
stainless steel rack cooks up to 12 wings, thighs and drumsticks to produce
even results and everyone’s favorite chicken part. The Wing Rack also allows you to leave the
prep to the pros! Order up trays of your
favorite wings from the deli or barbeque joint and finish them right on the
rack with a final gloss of your favorite hot sauce! Reload the rack and let the wings do their
thing while your favorite team runs the ball!
Everyone has their favorite hot
sauce and Super Bowl month boasts the hottest for sales in the condiment
category. Stock up on a wide variety of
brands from sweet and savory to hot and hades and serve them up in the True Fabrications: Beer Caddy.
While the caddy is designed to eliminate flimsy cardboard
carriers and as a convenient way to carry your local micro-brews to the big
game, the six slots in durable Acacia wood caddy is an attractive and welcome
addition to your game day table-top.
