Must have snacks for Super bowl LV


Mary Ramirez, Reporter

Do you guys know what time of year it is? It is the time where friends and family get together on a Sunday to watch two National Football League, or NFL, teams fight to the end to become the next Super bowl champions. But let’s be honest about this event – it’s the time we get together with friends and family to feast on “snacks.”

Monse Guillen, a sophomore majoring in pre-dentistry, thinks the best Super Bowl snack is definitely wings.

“My all time favorite snack for the Super Bowl would definitely be wings if you consider that a snack along with some Dr. Pepper. You really can’t go wrong with that combination” Guillen says.   

Larkyn Wright, a freshman majoring in biology, admits that she doesn’t make homemade snacks, she buys something already made. 

“I honestly just order pizza from Pizza Hut because it is easier than making stuff,” Wright says. “Everyone loves pizza and it is a good food to just sit there and snack on throughout the Super Bowl.”
