Free Wings and Other Deals for National Wing Day
Did you know Americans eat more than 28 billion chicken wings per year? More than half (54%) choose the traditional, bone-in variety. Only 46% like crispy breaded, boneless wings.
The 50 States of Wings survey, released by PantryandLarder.com in time for National Wing Day on Friday, July 29, 2022, revealed other insights about wing consumption, as well. For instance, 46% of Americans prefer drumettes, while only 25% prefer flats. And while 10% want their wings and flats together in a whole wing, 19% don’t care — they just want their wings!
“Chicken wings are affordable, convenient, and endlessly versatile. So it may come as no surprise that Americans eat over 28 billion of these delicious treats every year,” Pantry & Larder founder Veronica Fletcher shared in an email interview with GOBankingRates.com.
That works out to about 84 wings per person, according to Fletcher.
With food prices continuing to rise, you’ll want to find ways to save as you indulge in your fair share of wings. That’s where National Chicken Wing Day comes in.
“With the average price of chicken wings up 54% in the last year, finding a great deal is crucial now more than ever,” Fletcher said.
We’ve hunted down some of the tastiest National Wing Day deals, so you can meet your quota of 84 wings and maybe even have some cash left over for a tasty beverage.
