With the Super Bowl around the corner I’m excited to make some delicious appetizers and snacks to enjoy while we watch the game. While Dave enjoys actually watching the football game, I’m more partial to the commercials and half-time show. Even so we still enjoy good food while we are tuned in.
I was amazed to learn:
- Over Super Bowl weekend, approximately 100 million pounds of guacamole will be eaten.
- It takes more than 220,000 football fields worth of farmland to grow all those avocados.
- If all the guacamole consumed during the Super Bowl were spread across the football field, it would measure a depth of 11.8 feet
Guacamole is one of our favorite game day recipes and these stats are impressive!
Guacamole has become such an undeniable Super Bowl sensation that an avocado company is investing millions on the first ever guacamole-centric 30 second Super Bowl ad for this year’s big game.
Blimpie, America’s Sub Shop, has taken notice, too, and they’re ready to help Super Bowl fans bring (and enjoy) their avocado A-game. They’ve recently released the perfect game-day guacamole recipe and they’re gearing up to roll out a brand new line of guacamole-filled flatbread sandwiches, set to hit stores on February 2nd.I’m excited to share this Game Day Guacamole Recipe and look forward to serving it on Super Bowl Sunday:
