Is It Expensive to Purchase Food at Super Bowl Games?

Concession prices at Super Bowl games are very high, especially when comparing the prices to those at a grocery store, according to Sports Illustrated. High prices for concessions are typical at most sporting venues, but at the Super Bowl, they are even more expensive, with items ranging from $6 to $15.00 for items like bottled water, hot dogs and popcorn.

Sports Illustrated published a list of prices for concessions at the University of Phoenix stadium during the 2015 Super Bowl. The price of a bottle of water was $6.00. Hot dogs ranged in price from $8.00 to $12.00. Nachos and kettle corn were priced at $8.00; a souvenir popcorn was $15.00. Boxes of candy ranged from $5.00 to $7.00. Draft beer was priced at $12.00, and soda was $7.00 (or $9.00 in a souvenir cup). These prices are higher than usual, according to the prices listed at StadiumJourney.com.
