While trendy bar snacks come and go, any real bar menu wouldn’t be complete without a good old order of chicken wings, and there’s good reason for that. It seems, according to a new survey, Americans just love them.
A new report reveals Americans will eat 18,000 chicken wings in their lifetime, with the average eating about 24 per month, or 290 a year. What’s more, folks tend to eat about seven wings per sitting, but what type of wing is a whole other story.
In general, more people tend to favor bone-in wings (39%), over boneless wings (27%), and while some people feel that if there is no bone, how can it be wing, 56% of people believe it’s perfectly appropriate to call a boneless wing a wing.
As for when’s the perfect time to have a wing, the Super Bowl and dinner were the top choices, although 28% of people said any time or place. One time that may not be so great though is a first date, with 57% of folks saying they would never have wings on a date because they are too messy and not classy.
