Super Bowl Snack Idea: The Snack-Food Stadium


Following the Bacon Explosion and the Atomic Buffalo Turd is this remarkable creation, which comes to Gut Check from the awesomely named Web site Holy Taco (via Deadspin).

Among it's many amazing constituent parts: one end zone made out of queso dip (for the Steelers), the other out of salsa (for the Cardinals); stands made out of Twinkies, bacon, Chex Mix and various chips; players made out of cocktail weenies wearing helmets made out of cubed cheddar cheese.

The whole shebang totals 24,375 calories -- that's equivalent to almost 9.5 Baskin Robbins Chocolate Oreo shakes! -- with 1,285 grams of fat. The ingredients cost $86.47.
