We’ll each be spread out all across the nation gorging ourselves on chicken wings, 7-layer dips, pizza, hotdogs, burgers, chicken wings, chili, nachos, shrimp, and did I mention chicken wings? I’ve never been to a Super Bowl. It costs an arm and a leg to get into the game and the only time my team (Tampa Bay) won it all I was in college and obviously couldn’t afford to make the trip myself. So I don’t really have a concept of how much food people eat inside the stadium but I’ve always assumed it wasn’t on the same level as how much the rest of us eat at home. Well, I might be wrong.
Aramark is in charge of filling U.S. Bank Stadium with food and beverages for Super Bowl LII and they’ve just released an infographic which shows how much food they’ll be supplying the stadium with. It’s a gargantuan amount of food. Seriously, my feeble mind can’t even process what 1,000 pounds of shrimp and 7,000 orders of nachos even looks like.
The infographic is below, but first let’s check out the New England and Philadelphia tribute items that will be sold inside the stadium:
New England Clam Roll – Kettle Chip Crusted Fried Clams, House Tartar Sauce, Shredded Lettuce, Griddled Roll
South Philly Roast Pork Sandwich – Italian Roast Pork, Sautéed Broccoli Rabe, Sharp Provolone, Hoagie Roll
The Wicked Red (AFC) — Cranberry Juice, Rum and Blueberry
Midnight Green Punch (NFC) — Vodka, Sour Apple and Lemon-Lime Soda
Philly makes the Super Bowl and they don’t even get a Philly Cheese Steak in the stadium as a tribute? My only hunch here is there are so many differing opinions on what constitutes a perfect cheesesteak that nobody could make up their mind on what to include in terms of bread and toppings.
Now, here’s what Aramark will be loading the stadium up with:
There will also be celebrity chefs on hand (Andrew Zimmern and Gavin Kaysen) as well as a TON of local Minnesota-based restaurants and bakeries serving up local delicacies. Here’s that list:
Be Graceful Bakery & Catering (Edina, MN)
A Peace of Cake (St. Paul, MN)
Chocolat Celeste (St. Paul, MN)
Curds & Cakes (Foreston, MN)
Ike’s Food & Cocktails (Minneapolis, MN)
