See the Most Popular Super Bowl Food for Indiana
Food and football go together like peanut butter and jelly, or chocolate and peanut butter, or peanut butter and — anything, really (I like peanut butter, what of it?). The two are so synonymous with one another that if you're not eating something while watching a football game, are you really watching a football game? There may be no bigger time of the year where the two come together than Super Bowl Sunday, and according to Business Insider, every state has one dish they prefer more than anything else when it's time for kickoff.
As friends and family make plans to get together this Sunday to watch the Falcons (hopefully) beat the Patriots in Super Bowl 51 (because, screw those guys), there's no doubt a buffet of chips, dips, wings, and everything in between will be spread out across a table or counter top ready to be consumed.
According to the aforementioned Business Insider piece, who relied on Google Trends for their information, when we Hoosiers get together for the big game, there better be Pulled Pork somewhere on the table, or you might be watching the game by yourself.
This surprises me a bit since Indiana is not known as a barbecue capitol like a Texas, Missouri, or North Carolina. Clearly we like to eat it because it's what we do, and it's not that we don't have insanely talented individuals around the state who make great barbecue, it's just not our "thing" so to speak.
Personally, I'm surprised our go-to Super Bowl food isn't deep fried.
Our neighbors to the south in the great state of Kentucky enjoy a big ol' bowl of Bean Salsa while they're watching the game, while our friends to the west in Illinois prefer Buffalo Chicken Dip.
