Packers fans stock up for Super Bowl parties

By Bonnie Shelton

WAUSAU (WAOW)--Super Bowl fans hit local stores Sunday to stock up on the best Packers party supplies. From chips to wings to beer, you couldn't walk down an aisle without seeing Green and Gold.

"Anything and everything we can dye green and yellow is green and yellow," said bakery employee Alicia Zastrow. On Sunday, the only cake left featuring a Super Bowl team was a Steelers one...and no Packers fan wanted anything to do with it.

Zastrow said it was hard to keep any Packers-related treats on the shelves.

Michelle Henry is a self-proclaimed die-hard cheesehead. She headed to County Market to stock up on cheese, brats and ingredients to make enchiladas.

Green and yellow buns, bread and cookies were also popular items at local stores.

Employees said stores were very busy before the Super Bowl with last minute shoppers stocking up on snack items.

Whether the Packers win or lose, fans said it's always a great day to support Green Bay. "Doesn't matter if they win or lose. Packer fans are Packer fans," said Henry.
