If it seemed like everyone was eating hot wings, chips and guac at Super Bowl gatherings yesterday, you were apparently at the wrong place. According to this story from Cox News Service, the rest of America was eating veggies. Seriously. Here's a portion of the story, by Virginia Anderson:

What’s the most widely eaten food in America on Super Bowl Sunday?A sure bet would be vegetables.
According to the NPD Group, which provides market research information to countries around the world, vegetables take first place. That’s because Super Bowl Sunday is, first, a Sunday, and then Super Bowl Sunday, a company vice president said.

“We’re all wrapped up in it being the Super Bowl, but the majority of people are not watching the Super Bowl,” said Harry Balzer, vice president of the NPD Group.Thus, family dinners still are the most important dining experience of the day, Balzer said, and that typically includes vegetables.

And of the vegetables, corn reigns supreme on Super Bowl Sunday, Balzer said. Green beans and broccoli come in next, he said.
