In 2009, we reported on this phenomenon: “Holy Taco has created the most beautifully gluttonous and disgusting Super Bowl party food idea yet: an entire football stadium made of snack foods.

You’ll need about a pound each of guacamole, queso dip, and salsa for the field, plus 58 Twinkies, a pound of bacon, and one bag each of Nacho Cheese Doritos, Cheetos, tortilla chips, and Chex Mix for the stands. Then there are incidentals like 15 Vienna sausages with cheddar cheese helmets for the players, and Slim Jims for the goal posts.”

Then-editor Roxanne Weber continued: “I don’t have anything clever to say about it, but I do admire that they stuck to their guns when it came to the “blimp.” At the end of the ingredients list it says: ’20 Oz. Football-Shaped Summer Sausage (optional) (on second thought, no, this isn’t optional. Go buy one.)’ This bad boy then gets suspended over the stadium on a string.

Oh, and they say the whole thing is 24,375 calories, costs $86.47, and has a ‘total deliciousness’ score of ‘1 Billion trillion, dude. One billion trillion.'”

Sadly, a decade later, the link to the original creation no longer works. However, there are plenty of equally ingenious—and impressive—Super Bowl snack stadiums gracing the Internet today (like the one pictured at top, from Game Day Style). See them all here.
