Buffalo Wings #2 On The Big Game Snack List
We all have our favorite football foods, as I mentioned just the other day. And, we probably know that Super Sunday is generally the biggest pizza sales day of the year.
Now, it appears that Buffalo Style Chicken wings are a solid number 2 in the TV fans' food choices.
According to Harris Interactive:
"More than 1.25 billion wing portions will be consumed during Super Bowl weekend in 2012, totaling more than 100 million pounds of wings, according to the National Chicken Council’s 2012 Wing Report. If the wings were laid end-to-end they would circle the circumference of the Earth – more than twice – a distance that would reach approximately a quarter of the way to the moon."
Buffalo Wings came on the scene and were first served on October 3, 1964 in the Anchor Bar in Buffalo (so they live up to their first name...Buffalo)!
Here's a little history on Buffalo Wings courtesy of Wikipedia:
"A Buffalo wing, hot wing or wing is a chicken wing section (drumette or flat) that is traditionally fried unbreaded and then coated in sauce. Classic Buffalo-style chicken wing sauce is composed of a vinegar-based cayenne pepper hot sauce and butter. Buffalo wings are traditionally served with celery sticks and blue cheese dressing or ranch dressing.
Buffalo wings were created in Buffalo, New York. The residents of Buffalo generally refer to them as "wings" or "chicken wings" rather than "Buffalo wings."
