INGLEWOOD, CA – In its inaugural Super Bowl Food Report, Wells Fargo & Company reports that the sports event celebrated across U.S. homes may see costs up 14 percent from 2021.
Wells Fargo Chief Agricultural Economist Dr. Michael Swanson analyzed the impact of rising food prices on the typical Super Bowl spread and estimates costs will be 8% -14% higher this year, depending on the shopping list.
Swanson explains food inflation is at a multi-decade high.
“The best way to keep expenses for the big game under control is to stick with snacking staples that have undergone the most moderate increases, like veggies, chips, and avocados,” Wells Fargo recommended.
This Super Bowl Food Report breaks down the grocery shopping list by segment and offers tips for keeping costs low.
Super Bowl LVI (56) will be played at 3:30 p.m. PST on Sunday, Feb. 13. It will take place at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, CA, the home of the Rams and Chargers.
