What Is Florida’s Fan-Favorite Football Food?
As football fans prepared to watch the many opening day games this weekend, one common question was asked in every household. What are we going to eat? The Food Network compiled a list of the fan-favorite foods in Florida. In other words, what is the food that most perfectly pairs with football games?
In this feature, many local elements were considered when selecting the football food for each market across the country. Food (and beverage) is a universal must-have that can unite fans of various teams, even when they square off against each other. For example, a large tray of overloaded nachos would be served for all gathered around the TV to share, regardless of which team they are rooting for. Perhaps you were at the bar or get-together for the Buccaneers, Jaguars, or Dolphins game. Was the platter of chicken wings served to fans of only your team (though that’s not a bad idea)?
The food choice enhances your gameday experience. It adds to the excitement and anticipation of those four hours each week when you sit and watch the big game.
Here, the Food Network recognized that. They also took into account the local flavors of your home state. When you put that together, the result is a fan-favorite football food with a hometown flavor. It’s as unique to your market as the logo on your team’s helmet.
What is the fan-favorite football food in Florida? Well, there are three of them.
Lechon Asado, Fried Shrimp, Fish Sandwich
Depending upon the Sunshine State team of our choice, the fan-favorite food varies here. According to Food Network, Tampa Bay Bucs fans gravitate towards shredded pork. Jaguars fans are on the opposite end of the spectrum with fried shrimp. Lastly, in Miami, the fan-favorite food for the Dolphin fan-base is the fish sandwich.
Regardless of the food choice you indulged in for week one, Florida NFL football fans may want to consider ordering the same menu next week. The state went 3-0 with all three teams winning their opening game.
