7 Last-Minute Ways To Win Any Super Bowl Party

Maybe you're a Broncos fan. Or maybe, like one of my Panthers-obsessed coworkers, you can't stop talking about Michael Oher and The Blind Side. Either way, that's great, but I think we can all agree that the Super Bowl is about so much more than football. There are the emotionally manipulative commercials that we dissect to death the next day; the halftime show that some annoying person in the room always talks through; and of course, the glorious spread of game day snacks that make the random party you're at worth getting all gussied up for on a Sunday.
Even if you have zero interest in what's happening on-screen, we bet we can get you excited about indulging in a tater tot or two, right? That's why we tapped Pinterest to find out what football-friendly fare is trending ahead of this year's game.
Be prepared: There's tons of cheese, sugar, and fried goodness ahead.
