Surprise: Super Bowl concessions are really expensive

Sunday February 1st, 2015

What's that old saying? "Death, taxes and expensive concession prices?"

Looks like that goes double for the University of Phoenix Stadium food stands at Super Bowl XLIX.

The biggest crime has to be $6 for a bottle of water. Draft beer is also predictably high at $12, but still... $12?

And the popcorn... that "Souvenir Popcorn" better be supersized for $15.

At least there's a nice selection of three different hot dogs. A "side of cheese" for $2 also seems like a decent deal.
