Some Super Bowls can be absolute nail-biters, like in 1991 when the New York Giants narrowly beat the Buffalo Bills 20-19. Others can lead to a biblical level of weeping and gnashing of teeth, like the 2001 trouncing of the Giants by the Baltimore Ravens, who beat them 34-7. As a Super Bowl party planner, you can't control what happens on the gridiron, but you can make sure your attendees have plenty of tasty snacks on hand to keep them chewing before the aforementioned gnashing or nail biting.

Filled with chocolate chips and caramel chunks, this chewy treat is perfect for celebrating a big win (and will certainly be comforting in case the team loses).
Kettle Corn Popcorn
There's a reason popcorn has been a standard snack at every movie theatre and sporting event. In moments of high tension, nothing is better than a handful of light, crunchy popcorn. Give your guests a sweet and salty snacking option to wolf down as they wait for that ref to make the right call. Better yet, serve it in some football-themed popcorn boxes to really fit the occasion.
Zesty Dill Pickles
While pickles are a sandwich's best friend, they're also so tangy and delicious on their own.
