How Much Do You Spend on Super Bowl? [AUDIO]
Have you done the shopping yet for your Super Bowl get-together this weekend? If so, your wallet or purse is probably much lighter.
Townsquare Media took a trip to a local supermarket with the goal of figuring out how much it would cost to host a successful Super Bowl party for ten (hungry) guests.
A few sample prices:
Bottled water: $3.99
Chips and dip: $11
Veggie platter: $18.99
Cheese and crackers: $19.99
THE “REAL” FOOD
Tray of buffalo wings: $24.99
3-foot sub: $39.99
Pound of shrimp: $10
Super Bowl cake: $12.99
Add the paper goods, decorations and whatever else you many need, and the tab could reach nearly $200!
That’s, of course, for the perfect party that more than satisfies every guests’ needs. According to the Retail Advertising and Marketing Association, the average game-watching American is expected to spend $63.87 on food, merchandise and apparel.
