NEW YORK (MainStreet) — Anyone gearing up for a Super Bowl party faces the same dilemma: How many snacks is too many snacks? Before setting your game-day budget though, check out the infographic above from Alice.com, which shows which cities spent the most on snack items per order placed through the site in 2011.
The online marketplace, which sells household essentials, found that residents of Greenville, N.C., spent the most on snack foods last year, throwing down an average of $20.26 on snacks per order.
The city collectively spent almost double of what second-place snackers in San Antonio, Texas, spent ($10.86) and more than eight times what residents in Beamont-Port Arthur, Texas, the city on the opposite side of the spectrum, paid per order ($2.41).
Interestingly, Green Bay, Wis., and Pittsburgh, Penn. – the two cities that faced off in last year’s Super Bowl – didn’t appear in the top 25 at all, but that might have to do with the fact that the data didn’t incorporate pizza or chicken wings. Instead, Alice.com focused on the top snack-food purchases on the site: Cheetos, Doritos, Tostitos, Lay’s Potato Chips and Blue Diamond Almonds.
Sadly, the beleaguered Twinkie didn’t rank as one of America’s favorite snack foods in Alice.com’s analysis. Find out which other nostalgic snacks MainStreet would like to see make a comeback in this roundup!
