Inflation has driven up prices for at-home food 11.8% over the past year, but some watch party staples like chicken wings and guacamole will cost less this year, according to a new report.
The report shows a decline in foods like chicken wings means the grocery bill for this year's game should cost less compared with last year for savvy shoppers.
Here are some of the items with lower prices this year as compared to last year:
Avocados: Avocados will be much less expensive this year thanks to a strong crop. Prices have dropped about 20%.
Chicken wings: With supply at its highest levels since the beginning of 2019, the price of chicken has dropped from about $3.38 per pound to $2.65 per pound.
Hamburgers: While hamburger prices are slightly elevated from last year, they have fallen below their peak in July. Also, frying up some bacon to top those burgers will cost less this year.
Various food prices are easing thanks to improvements in the supply chain.
