Americans Will Eat Staggering Amount of Chicken Wings During Super Bowl
It's common knowledge that Americans love chicken wings. But the amount they'll eat during the Super Bowl this year is pretty insane.
For the day of Super Bowl 50, Americans are on track to eat 1.3 billion chicken wings - enough to put 600 wings on every seat in all 32 NFL stadiums, for every person in the United States to have 4 wings each, and to stretch between the Broncos' Sports Authority Field at Mile High and the Panthers' stomping grounds at Bank of America Stadium in North Carolina.
Yikes. That's a lot of napkins.
According to the National Chicken Council, 75% of the wings we'll eat will come from restaurants like Wingstop and Buffalo Wild Wings, rather than from grocery stores.
