Who Won the Social Media Superbowl? [infographic]

How was the Superbowl this year? As a household without cable, keeping up with sports is not my forte. I’ve heard through the grape vine it wasn’t very entertaining or what one would consider a “good game” besides Beyonce’s ridiculously awesome half time show. Ya, I looked that up on youtube…

I believe this is the first Superbowl where football as a sport didn’t garner as much attention as the half-time performance, technical difficulties or brotherly rivalry. Is this a sign that the athletic aspect of sports are not as important as the entertainment aspect? I know ESPN has started putting microphones on outspoken players, is the game not enough?

But don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy a good football game. I’ve attended literally thousands of sporting events thanks to my dad working in the sports industry, but I truly believe the game is changing. Today’s graphic is about the social media impact of the teams, but if compared to the power outage or Beyonce I’d bet the athletic tweet count would pale in comparison. [Via]

Your Guide to Sugar [infographic]

I think we can all agree that one of the hardest things about keeping a diet is the whole, “no sweets” part. But sadly, sugar is in practically everything we eat, so even when we think we are being good, sugar is sneaking its way into our diets. Most people think that fruit is the safe way to go when trying to curb a sweet craving, but in fact, fruit is loaded with sugar, and it can ruin a diet if you eat too much of it.

Today’s infographic is a great way to visualize what sugary foods are sneaking their way into your diet. I was sad to see that an apple had a surprisingly large amount of sugar. But hey, ya gotta eat something right? [via]

The Different Types of Wine [Inforgraphic]

Taken from a suggestion in the comments last week, I’ve found myself a nice little infographic showing the intricate web of the various types of wine. In the beginning, all wine starts with the grapes. There are two varieties – black and green. Red wines use black grapes and can have a variety of tastes. Red wines can be dry or sweet, dark or light. Rosé wines also use black grapes, but they are peeled before the coloring process begins, though a blending of White and Red wine techniques can also result in a Rosé. White wines, as you may have guessed are usually concocted with green grapes and can have a range of rich cream-like or light, vibrant taste. Sparkling wine, like champagne, involves a secondary fermentation process causing bubbles; they can range from Red to Rosé to White coloring. The other type of wine is fortified with spirits, usually resulting in a dessert-like taste though dry fortified wines do exist.

Each of these wines has it’s own subsection of being High Tannin, Round or Spicy. High Tannin refers to a taste that dries the mouth, kind of like the feeling of the tongue after licking a popsicle stick (but tastier). Round taste has less tannin and a more balanced acidity resulting in a lush or smooth sensation. Spicy wines have higher acidity and higher alcohol giving a tartness to the taste. Think pineapple juice over apple juice. All in all, this is a very informative infographic, it taught me a few things about one of my favorite beverages. Hope you felt the same.

Hunger is a large problem world wide. Putting food on the table isn’t always as simple as it sounds, and when you have hungry mouths to feed it can spiral out of control. Thankfully, companies like Bank of America are trying to help. Supporting hunger relief programs is a top priority for Bank of America. They have been working to end hunger since 2008 with donations and volunteering. They are bringing food to millions of hungry people, helping to relieve the pain and settle the rumbling stomaches.

Bank of America worked to bring 16 million pounds of food, serving 7 million meals. We thank you for all of the hard work.[Via]

Regardless of which team won or lost yesterday’s big game, one standard product from the produce section was a clear winner: the avocado. Avocados are becoming an increasingly-popular snack for America’s biggest sporting event, and this year is no different from the others.

Today’s infographics come to us from Shape.com and give us an idea of just how much of the green fruit we eat on game day. We as a country ate 1.5 billion pounds of avocados during all of 2012, but during 2013′s Super Bowl alone we will have eaten 79 million pounds, or 5% of 2012′s grand total.

For more information on America’s favorite Super Bowl snack refer to the infographic below. [Via]
