Chips and dip (and LOTS of chips), cheap beer, chicken wings, sandwiches....basically, lots of food that you can eat with one hand while holding a beer in the other.

Melt a block of Velveeta in the crock pot, throw in a can of Rotel tomatoes. Serve with tortilla chips and pickled jalapenos.

And a couple cases of Bud Light.

Make sure the sammich is actually 6 feet long.
Yeah. Be prepared to take legal action if it's only five feet and eleven inches.

My American choice... Nacho Cheese Doritos and root beer. And sometimes, cheese dip and chips.

Re: American Food for Superbowl...

There's always the 4 foot wedge as well. (Or however long you order it. I've seen from 3' up to 6'.) The Super Bowl used to be a week or so earlier when I was a kid, so it fell close to my birthday. The delis always had sales on wedges that time of year, so that's what we'd get when I had the kids from school over for a party. They would usually throw in some potato or macaroni salad and a 2 L bottle of soda as well.

We would usually get the half American, half Italian one. But as an adult, I've had a vegetarian option consisting of breaded eggplant, roasted red pepper, basil, and mozzarella that immediately became my favorite.

This Super Bowl this year is about as appealing to me as eating worm infested dog shit while my friend's uncle toe bangs my anus, so I have about zero interest in watching on Sunday.

I was planning on getting together with my mom and making fish tacos and playing Trivial Pursuit instead. And she's another big football fan with no interest this go around.

Since when is the Super Bowl about actually watching the game?

Weird.

Then again, I'm from Chicago. By the time the Super Bowl rolls around, we've usually stopped caring. The Super Bowl is all about getting drunk with friends and eating copious amounts of food. The game is on, but we rarely pay much attention to it.

Re: American Food for Superbowl...

Yeah, unless YOUR team is in the game, I don't think too many people really care about what happens.

Re: American Food for Superbowl...

As everyone said, Wings are a must (Buffalo Wings or Hot Wings). Usually snacks are typical, so veggies and ranch or chips and salsa. You could always make a 7ish-layer dip.

I think the general rule is if it seems healthy, you're probably doing it wrong.

You also need beer. Here, I don't think you're wrong for being a little less realistic. The most common beer would be Budweiser or Miller, but I almost never drink that so I don't think a cheap British beer would be strange. Just make sure it's a Lager, ideally a Pilsner. If you get Bud, drink it very cold because, otherwise, you might have to taste it.

Blech.

We usually get a keg of Bud for our house party, but every year I am able to stomach it less and less.

I think this year I will be drinking some craft Pale Ales. Maybe some stouts.

Or I might try and get a keg of something from the brewery where I work.

Unless, of course, you really hate one of the teams that's playing.
This year, I really don't hate anybody. And my team's not there. So bring on the FOOD COMA!

Look, I agree with you. Last year, I had Dogfish Head. However, if the goal is a typical American Super Bowl party, it can't really be a craft beer since craft beers make up 5% of total beer sales and the overwhelming majority of people don't drink them.

I would suggest Yuengling as a compromise, but I doubt you can get it overseas. It would be a little weird for a British person to drink Sam Adams.
