Buffalo and Beyond
There is no denying America's love of chicken wings. Americans eat more than a billion chicken wings during Super Bowl celebrations alone, according to the National Chicken Council.
And wings fans, there's another reason to celebrate: the wings are cheaper than they have been in years. Just in time for the kickoff of NFL season, the Department of Agriculture's price index for chicken wings is at pre-pandemic levels, dropping to less than $1.68 a pound, as demand for bone-in wings has slackened. Restaurants started replacing bone-in wings with boneless wings, as consumer began cooking more at home. But don't get too excited for too long; the price drop is likely temporary — as sports seasons get underway, prices are likely to go up.
