Looking for big game party food ideas? Here’s a taste

The game this weekend has practically become a holiday in America. There are a ton of parties and even more tons of junk food. During the game, viewers and party guests consume roughly 28,000,000 pounds (13,000,000 kg) of chips, 1.25 billion chicken wings, and 8,000,000 pounds (3,600,000 kg) of guacamole. The question for those hosting a party is, What what big game party food do I serve my guests? Using Watson Analytics for Social Media, I wanted to see what people were saying about some of the most popular dishes out there.

We can see that wings, hoagies (subs and heroes to those not from Philadelphia), and pizza are dominating the conversation about big game party food. And, the overwhelming majority of people prefer to order their food instead of opting for home cooking. This makes sense. With lives so much busier than they used to be, picking up the phone or gong online is easy and fast. Also, the olden days when it was assumed that women would cook instead of watch the game are long gone. Thank goodness.

Taco dip: The great equalizer

Yes, women are making their thoughts known about the big game party food they’re craving. Men and women differ a lot on what they mention most, but taco dip is something they both talk about in equal measure.

So, what do both men and women have to say about party food favorites? Watson Analytics for Social Media also gives me the ability to quickly view the sentiment around the different dishes:

Party trays have a surprisingly amount of negative sentiment.
