Here's one for the record books. The National Chicken Council reports that Super Bowl weekend is decidedly the biggest time of the year for wings. Based on their stats, more than 1 billion wing portions were consumed during Super Bowl weekend, or more than 90 million pounds of wings.

Equally surprising is what many fans seemed willing to trade for all the tea in China: Tea ranked last on NPD Group's Top 10 Super Bowl Sunday Food and Drink list whereas beer remained altogether absent from the list.
