  1. That's really interesting - I had no idea that the price of wings actually rose the closer we got to the Super Bowl. It makes sense, though. Looks like they are going to be even more expensive this year than around this time last year. I wonder why that is.

    Anyway - I wanted to stop by your blog and let you know I appreciate your reviews! I especially like these little tidbits that beef up the blog and make it even more interesting. I'm trying to do the same: add some more value to my blog beyond just my typical reviews. I put you on my blogroll, too.

    I look forward to your updates! Keep it up. =]

    1. Thanks. I like to do the "news desk" thing from time to time when there's something interesting happening to the industry on a whole. If it's news that affects wing eaters then I try to post it. Or at least provide a link to interesting tidbits. You're right...it is value added. But it also fills the gaps between new review postings!

      What I find interesting about this story specifically, is the way the cost of wings is changed by the difference in demand between the wings and the rest of the chicken. It's ECON 101, I suppose, but I never really gave it much thought. It's not just the demand for wings...it's the demand for wings compared to the demand for the rest of the chicken that drives the price.
