A lot of kids try to eat healthy, but it can be hard sometimes. There are delicious chocolate-covered doughnuts, gooey caramel candy bars, and crunchy, mouth-watering chips out there for a kid to gobble up. If you’re looking for a quick bite that is also healthy, Super Bowls is a great place. It is not a fast-food place, but you will get your order quickly.

Super Bowls is in Sayville. It opened three years ago. The owner is Jason Mazzarone. We stopped by to talk to Jason. He welcomed us with a free acai bowl. In case you’ve never had an acai bowl, this is what is in it: strawberries, bananas, blueberries, coconut, granola, honey and acai berry. The acai berry is called a superfood because it is full of antioxidants, which help keep you healthy. It is very tasty and filling. It’s Super Bowls’ most popular item. You can also add things like Nutella, peanut butter, or even pineapples.

Jason is a graduate of Sayville High School. He got the idea for the acai bowl when he was in San Diego while he was attending the San Diego Culinary Institute.

Jason said he comes up with his other meals by experimenting in the kitchen. Super Bowls serves salads, burritos, soups and many other delicious items. He learned to cook from his family and at the cooking school. His favorite food to make is the acai bowl and the granola. The granola is homemade at Super Bowls. Jason first started his business down the road at The Ice House in West Sayville. His business is on Main Street. He started at The Ice House because his family has owned it for three generations.

Super Bowls is loved by many of the local kids as well as the adults. “I like the acai bowls,” said Sean Folks, 10. “I love fruit so I like how there’s all different kinds of fruit in the acai bowl. I also like that I can custom-order it, and I usually take out the blueberries.”

Since Super Bowls is so popular, Jason to decided to open up a second store at 22 W. Main St. in Patchogue. Since both stores are on Main Streets, we wanted to know how many more Super Bowls he hopes to open on Long Island’s Main Streets. Jason said he hopes to open up 10 more stores on Main Streets in the next 10 years.

The original Super Bowls is at 153 Main St., Sayville. It is open 7 a.m.-8 p.m. We hope you choose to eat healthy, and go to Super Bowls online: superbowlsli.com
