What role has food played in the Super Bowl fan experience? Stadium concessionaires over the years have supplemented their own menu items with branded products from companies such as Pizza Hut, KFC, Domino's, and a number of beer companies. It is also become a practice to feature locally produced products and favorites such Texas style barbecue and locally brewed beers. The typical attendee in has been a 35-year-old white working-class male. As a result, concessionaires have done did little to accommodate female fans. What fans eat in private suites represents perhaps the greatest change. These suites are equipped with full bars, standard fanfare, elaborate meals, and dessert carts with individual and whole size cakes, tarts, cookies, puddings and ice cream.  Skyboxes at some stadiums include buffets that open hours before the game and feature different types of entrées including select cuts of expensive meets and seafood. So what role does food play and enjoying the Super Bowl for a fan? That will be depend on how much the fan paid for his or her ticket and where that ticket is located.
