This isn't surprising, but it's still absurd.

The price to get inside U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis for this evening's Super Bowl is high. The average ticket to see the Eagles-Patriots game is more than $5,300, per StubHub.

High prices don't stop when you get inside the doors, either.

Food and beer prices for tonight's game have surfaced on social media. They're pretty ridiculous.

A gigantic cocktail, for example, costs $35. A standard mixed drink runs up to $25. A regular beer costs between $11 and $17.

Food isn't any better. "Nuts" cost $7. String cheese costs $4. Chicken tenders and fries cost $13.

Will Brinson of CBS Sports has been tweeting out some of the speciality items and their costs.

Here are some of the standard vending menus:

What would you be buying?

Kickoff is set for 6:30 p.m. E.T. The game will be on NBC. Hopefully your in-home menu is better (and less expensive) than the one at the stadium.
