PETA’s Play-by-Play: THE Super Bowl Coverage for People Who Care About Animals

Published by PETA.

Did you miss our live coverage? Check out our reactions to Super Bowl 50’s commercials, halftime show, and all the other action and see what these things mean for animals here. And yes, we were shamelessly rooting for Denver Bronco and PETA pal Chris Harris Jr. all night long. And even though PETA’s latest steamy Super Bowl ad didn’t air during the game, you can catch it here.

If you love our Super Bowl snack spread below, check out our list of 50 recipes to make any shindig a win for your guests and animals.

There are lots of vegan options for Super Bowl 50!

Game day, #SB50 has arrived! You’re gonna need to make these potatoes 😍😍 #TrustUs #OMG Vegan Game-Day Potato Skins 6 potatoes 2 cups shredded vegan cheddar cheese @followyourheart 1/8 cup vegan bacon bits (try Bac~Os) 1/4 cup vegan aioli or chipotle mayo 1/4 cup thinly sliced scallions Vegan sour cream, for garnish Preheat the oven to 400°F. Lightly grease a 9-inch-by-13-inch baking pan. Pierce the potatoes with a fork and microwave on high until soft, approximately 10 to 12 minutes, or bake for 50 minutes. Remove from the microwave or oven, let cool, and cut in half vertically. Scoop out the insides, leaving a 1/4-inch-thick shell. Fill with the “cheese” and vegan bacon bits. Arrange on the prepared baking pan and bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the “cheese” has melted. Top with the vegan aioli, sliced scallions, and vegan sour cream and serve.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
