Is There a Chicken Wing Shortage For The Super Bowl?

yauchan,flickr

First it was bacon, now it’s chicken wings. With less than 2 weeks to go before the big game, fans my find it a bit harder to find their favorite Superbowl snack.

The national Chicken Council released a report that said the demand for wings this year is at “an all-time high” due to decreased wing production caused by the high price of corn and feed prices. Wings are currently the highest priced portion of a chicken and cost $2.11 a pound here in the Northeast. That’s an increase of over 12 percent from one year ago. Keep in mind that last year we were warnned of a shortage of bacon, because of rising feed costs and drought. But chefs and home cooks were relieved when U.S. agriculture economists dismissed report of a bacon shortage. This year they report that wings may be more expensive, but there will be plenty for those who to spend the extra money.
