Fall is here, and with that comes the changing leaves, cooler temperatures, fairs, bonfires… and college football! Even if you’re not a huge sports fan, everyone can enjoy a great pregame tailgate, right? There’s something about the food, drinks, and spending time with friends that just feels great this time of year. So when it comes to the tailgate parties, you notice the food came first on the list. That’s because there are so many great foods that pair perfectly with the pregame! The team at Spoon University set out to discover the top tailgate foods, and they did this by polling college students. Today, we’ll share the top 5 tailgate foods, according to college students!
The students in the survey were asked to rank each food.
Here were their options:
- Don’t Like It
- It’s Ok
- I Like It A Lot
- I LOVE It
Then they took the foods with the most likes and loves, and ranked them. Now obviously, everyone’s opinions vary. And as you get older, your tastes may change. But when it comes down to it, we feel this list features the core tailgate essentials that almost everyone can agree on. Just maybe ranked differently.
Ironically, despite polling college students, beer ranked number EIGHT on the list! You also have macaroni and cheese, hot dogs, ribs, and chili that round out the top ten.
