Hope you’ve stocked up on vats of blue cheese and ranch …
Experts say with the NCAA Tournament’s cancellation last month … there’s now a massive, national surplus of chicken wings — but sales of the delicious treats are nearing an all-time low!!
ALERT: THIS IS NOT A DRILL!!!
Poultry experts told The Washington Post this week that chicken wings are down to nearly $1 per pound after “millions of pounds” of the goods went uneaten due to March Madness’ cancellation.
This all comes just a few months after the price for the wings was nearly $2 per pound during the Super Bowl.
“The basketball, it’s for real,” one expert told the WAPO. “The basketball didn’t happen. People are not going to restaurants and there’s a lot of excess.”
According to the report, just before the annual NCAA Tourney was canceled last month … poultry farmers sold over 1.2 MILLION pounds of wings.
Last week, however, they say those sales dipped dramatically … with only 433,000 pounds being sold.
So, what does that mean exactly? Get your dipping sauces and celery sticks ready … WINGS ARE THE CHEAPEST THEY’VE BEEN SINCE SEPT. 2011!!!
