My mom told me about an article she read on USA Today (which was written several yesterdays ago) that I found hilarious. A chicken wing shortage? It doesn’t surprise me as the food item is such a staple in the American diet.
Most wing restaurants now offer a boneless “wing” alternative which is actually pieces of chicken breast. In November of 2009, the price of wings were actually more expensive than chicken breasts. A couple years prior, chicken breasts were 100% more expensive.
Poor little chickens… losing their limbs only to get fried and slathered in sauce.
