Whether or not spring is coming sooner or later may be debatable, however the amount of food consumed on this Super Bowl Sunday is not, according to some new numbers released.

Here are the numbers to prove.

IBIS World reported last year, Americans ate an estimated 1.2 billion chicken wings during the Super Bowl, and will likely eat more this year.

Avocado consumption this Super Bowl Sunday is likely to surpass 80 million pounds.

While Super Bowl Sunday is known for overindulgence in snack foods and football staples such as pizza, beer and chicken wings, IBIS World expects that consumers will increasingly include healthier items into their party plans.
