  • 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 about $A45 and a domestic can of beer would set you back $A17.

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 $A45.

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

If you want to skip the souvenir mason jar, cocktails are $A21, or $UA32 for a double.

A domestic beer in a can is $A17, or about $A1.30 per 30ml. Want something with a bit more flavour than a Bud Light? That will cost $A20.

The bacon cheese curds look good, but they are going for $A25 and come with 1,900 calories.

There is a Doritos “walking taco” that is going for $A23.

In addition, a bottle of soda is $A8.85 and a bottle of water is $A8. A non-alcoholic beer seems cheap at $A12.

Meanwhile, it is $A18 for a turkey sandwich or a salad and $A17 for a burger.

The BBQ prices actually seem not terrible by comparison. A whole chicken is $A29 and a pound of lamb or pork is $A28.

But if you are going to be in the sub-zero weather of Minneapolis, the best $A12 to spend might be on the “frozen hot chocolate.” Yummy.
