Time to get fired up for the Super Bowl! We're expecting a great game between the Packers and Steelers, but we're sure we'll be eating and drinking well. People look forward to Super Bowl snacking nearly as much as the Game and the Commercials.
Last week we highlighted recipes from Pittsburgh and Wisconsin to honor the culinary roots of the teams vying for the Lombardi Trophy. This week we're going to focus on classic football snacks- the game just wouldn't be the same without Hot Wings, Chips & Salsa, 7-Layer Dip, Pizza, Sausages, and Ice Cold Beer.
To match the action and excitement on the football field, we powered up the FoodPair search engine and assembled the best starting line-up of Super Bowl snacks.
