The end of summer means last-minute vacations, back-to-school shopping and the start of football season. Right about now, all NFL teams are in their training camps and college football teams are gearing up for their season start August 26. While baseball is still known as America’s National Pastime, most people would agree that the honor really belongs to football. Americans are passionate about their teams, and they are also passionate about the snacks they consume during their games.
Is Pizza Being Dethroned as Game Day Snack King?
Yes, people tend to think of things like pizza and wings when it comes to football, but Americans are snacking healthier these days. The thought of consuming pizza, wings, nachos and beer every weekend for some 21 weeks in a row is too much for even the biggest junk-food lovers among us. In fact, Papa John’s the “official pizza” of the NFL and Buffalo Wild Wings, another major sponsor; both reported sharp declines in sales during last year’s NFL season.
However, football fans aren’t necessarily turning in their pizza and wings for quinoa and kale. People are looking for “best of both worlds” solutions that appeal to their desire to indulge without clogging their arteries or adding to their waistline. Given this shift, salty snacks like nuts are still some of the top-selling game day snack items among US football fans since they appeal to both the angel and the devil on football fans’ shoulders.

Savvy stores should understand the changing habits of their shoppers to be prepared to offer their customers the savory, salty snacks they crave on game day while appealing to their desire to make that snacking as sensible as possible.
