This weekend, put whatever New Year’s resolution diet you’ve been trying to stick with on hold. It’s Super Bowl weekend and game-time snacking is a must. For the ultimate in football foods, we asked the championship-bound New York Giants for their favorites. (The players will be too busy on the field to enjoy these treats, but we didn’t hear them complaining.)

The cheese-and-salt seekers

David Tyree – Wide Receiver

"Potato chips, corn chips - just chips. I guess I developed some bad habits growing up and always bought lots of chips. I am not big on candy so I’d go with the chips."This weekend, put whatever New Year’s resolution diet you’ve been trying to stick with on hold.

The cheese-and-salt seekers

David Tyree – Wide Receiver

"Potato chips, corn chips - just chips. I guess I developed some bad habits growing up and always bought lots of chips. I am not big on candy so I’d go with the chips."

Chase Blackburn – Linebacker

"My fiancé’s taco dip with chips. I don’t really know what is in it but I know there are avocado, taco seasoning, cheese and refried beans."

Chris Snee – Offensive Line

"I am a big dip guy, so any type of cheese dip is good. Cheese dip, sour cream and onion dip - any type of chips and dip for a football game is probably my go-to snack."

The sweet tooths

Michael Johnson – Safety

"Popcorn. Caramel popcorn is my favorite kind."

Jerome Collins – Tight End

"Pop Tarts."

Rich Seubert – Offensive Line

"Cheeseburgers and beer."

Dave Tollefson – Defensive Line

Hot Tamales, the candy are my favorite.

Michael Matthews – Tight End

"Dibs [the ice cream nibbles] in either Cookies and Cream or Crunch."

The mindful munchers

Kevin Boss – Tight End

"Protein shakes because I really don’t eat any junk foods. If not a protein shake, then some baked Lays chips."
