That’s according to both a Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service expert and poultry trade association. The National Chicken Council estimates the consumption of chicken wings and drumsticks will remain hot despite the pandemic.

The council estimates a record 1 point 42 billion wings and drums will be consumed as the Kansas City Chiefs take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. That’s up 2 percent from last year.

An AgriLife Extension economist from Bryan-College Station says there are a few reasons that could contribute to the wings’ performance despite COVID-19 restrictions.

One of those being demand. Chicken wings are always a popular game day snack. Another reason? Well, the economist thinks cooking technology – specifically the air fryer – are also making wings a popular and trendy meal this weekend.
