Snack Attack

 During Super Bowl Sunday, the Calorie Control Council says Americans will eat over 30 million pounds of snacks. Here’s the breakdown:
- 11.2 million pounds of potato chips
- 8.2 million pounds of tortilla chips
- 4.3 million pounds of pretzels
- 3.8 million pounds of popcorn
- 2.5 million pounds of nuts.
- 46 million pounds of avocados will be consumed on Super Bowl Sunday
- 90 million pounds of chicken wings

 The average armchair quarterback will consume 1,200 calories and 50 grams of fat on Super Bowl Sunday. In order to burn off the calories, a person would need to do 4 hours of walking around a football field or 1 hour 45 minutes of running.

The Council’s research reveals that potato chips will account for 27 billion calories and 1.8 billion grams of fat. These 1.8 billion fat grams are the same as four million pounds of fat, which is equal to the weight of 13,000 National Football League (NFL) offensive linemen at 300 pounds each.
