Is your Super Bowl party budget the same now as it was 4 years ago? That answer is no. 

A sports survey estimates that we will shell out $11 billions for this football game. Food inflation is hitting everything from the chips to the salsa.

So if you have party plans, you better take a little more money out of the ATM this year.

For example, the cost of hamburger meat as jumped 60 percent over the past 4 years, according to CNBC.

Chicken wings are also on the rise: up 39 percent.

Corn prices are up 43 percent, but luckly the cost of chips like Doritos has only gone up 12 percent.

And how about that salsa -- up almost 10 percent.

Now Pizza hasn't changed much in four years. Beer is up 6 percent. Avocados prices are actually down 17 percent.

Hamburger and other meat will most likely be the biggest expense, with beer also taking a chunck.

Now when it comes to take out food, 58 percent of all take out food is Pizza.
