Alright football/food fans, the Super Bowl is hurtling toward us once again, and you may be wondering what to serve at or bring to your Super Bowl party of choice. We used to think that Super Bowl Sunday was a day that had no rules -- an all-out food free-for-all. It's a day to celebrate excess, dip chicken wings into dip, make sandwiches out of pizza, order subs longer than your body and wash it all down with beer. But it turns out there are a few things not to bring/serve.

To keep you from humiliating yourselves, you'll find our list of the worst Super Bowl foods imaginable below. What's the worst thing you've ever seen at a Super Bowl party? Let us know in the comments!

Chips are a requirement. Kale is exactly the opposite.

Lettuce (That Isn't In A Dip Or On A Burger)

This day is not a day for salads.

Tiny, fancy foods are for other parties. This party is for big, messy, overblown foods. Smoked salmon toasts need not apply.

Pepper-jack, cheddar or swiss in cubes. THAT IS ALL.

Non-Alcoholic Beer

As a matter of fact, don't ever bring this stuff to a party. It is absolutely fine to not want to drink beer or alcohol at all. But don't drink the fake stuff. That's not good for anyone.

Cocktails With More Than Two Ingredients

You already know that we're cocktail people, but a Super Bowl party is an occasion for beer. Whiskey. Rum and Coke, if you must. Gin and tonic if it's absolutely necessary. Mojitos? GET OUT OF HERE.

Fake Meat

Look, be a vegetarian, but this is the one day you can't make the rest of us eat this stuff.

Cupcakes decorated with footballs are passable, but not encouraged.

Have we not made it clear that this is a beer day? In fact, no wine. There, we said it.
