This Is The #1 Most Popular Super Bowl Dip in America

This classic dip is beloved by football fans across the country, according to new data.
FACT CHECKED BY Faye Brennan

The Super Bowl without a really good dip would be just another football game. After all, you and your guests need to do something with all those chips. According to a survey of 2,000 users of the delivery service Instacart, 99% of Super Bowl watchers intend to consume some kind of chip on Sunday. And tortilla chips lead the pack with 76% planning to purchase regular tortilla chips. The most popular chip to buy is Tostitos Scoops, which are literally made for scooping up dip.

There's another reason for dip, and that comes in the form of chicken wings. The number of orders for chicken wings doubled in the week leading up to last year's game, according to Instacart, and the delivery service expects to see the same thing this year. That being said, when it comes to dips for chips or wings, there are definite regional differences and each state has its own favorites.
