The prices for food and beer at the Super Bowl are mind-blowing

Super Bowl 52Eric Gay/AP

  • Everything at the Super Bowl is big, and that includes the prices for food and drinks.
  • It is not surprising that concessions are expensive, but it is still jarring to see the actual prices.
  • Souvenir cocktails cost $35 and a domestic can of beer would set you back $13.

Everything about the Super Bowl is big and it should not be a surprise that prices for food and drinks at the concessions during Super Bowl LII at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis are also big.

And yet, it is still mind-blowing to actually see the prices.

Several people at the game have posted photos of the concession prices, including Will Brinson of CBS Sports.

Among the more costly items are specialty cocktails that come in a plastic mason “jar.” Those are going for $35.

There is even one named after the halftime performer, Justin Timberlake.

If you want to skip the souvenir mason jar, cocktails are $17, or $25 for a double.

A domestic beer in a can is $13, or about $1 per ounce. Want something with a bit more flavor than a Bud Light? That will cost $15.

The bacon cheese curds look good, but they are going for $19 and come with 1,900 calories.

There is a Doritos “walking taco” that is going for $18.

In addition, a bottle of soda is $7 and a bottle of water is $6. A non-alcoholic beer seems cheap at $9.

Meanwhile, it is $14 for a turkey sandwich or a salad and $13 for a burger.

The BBQ prices actually seem not terrible by comparison. A whole chicken is $23 and a pound of lamb or pork is $22.

But if you are going to be in the sub-zero weather of Minneapolis, the best $10 to spend might be on the “frozen hot chocolate.” Yummy.
