July 29 is National Chicken Wing Day

If you love chicken wings, mark your calendar for July 29 because it is National Chicken Wing Day. It is the day to celebrate with others all over the country who will eat wings in honor of the national day. Some lovers of wings say they do not have to wait until a special day because they could eat them every single day.

People can surely eat wings and not get tired of eating them because there are so many different ways to prepare them. Besides, they can be eaten as an appetizer, snack, or a complete meal.

Origin of Buffalo Wings and National Chicken Wing Day

Do you know how the Buffalo Wing came to be such a popular food? Legend says Teressa Bellissimo them at her Anchor Bar that was owned with her husband Frank in Buffalo, New York. The story is told that one night, her son and some of his college friends arrived and wanted something to eat. Teressa deep fried some chicken wings and covered them with a mixture of butter and hot sauce. That was the beginning of a delicious snack.

Buffalo mayor Stan Makowski officially proclaimed July 29 as National Chicken Wing Day in 1997. That's how the unofficial holiday came to be.

Because of that proclamation, people can celebrate by order wings from their local restaurants. They are especially popular at sports bars where customers can watch their favorite sports and eat wings at the same time.

Popularity of Chicken Wings

Chicken wings are very popular in restaurants these days. In fact, they are so people that some restaurants have been established with wings as their specialty. They include the following chicken wing franchises:

  • Buffalo Wild Wings
  • Wingstop
  • Atomic Wings

Cooked chicken wings are also sold in supermarkets and stores such as Walmart, Food Lion, Kroeger and other places. In other words, you don't have to go far to get your fill of chicken wings. There are also quick and easy recipes online for you to cook your own. You are not limited to the type of wings you want to eat.

Types of Chicken Wings

All chicken wings are not created equal. There are so many varieties that when you say you want chicken wings, you are making a vague statement.

Some people like their wings deep fried and plain. Others like them hot and spicy. They can be eaten with blue cheese dressing or nothing at all. Other popular types of wings include barbecue, lemon pepper, parmesan garlic, sweet and sour and honey mustard

Americans eat over 27 billion in one year. Over 1.23 billion wings are consumed during Super Bowl Sunday. If you laid out the wings end to end, they would go around the earth twice.

Golden Corral's Wing Fest

Golden Corral is having a Wing Fest with five different types of chicken wings. As you know, you can pay one price at the family-style restaurant and eat all you want. For those who want to eat other dishes from the regular items, they are free to do so. For chicken wing lovers, they can fill up off of the following types of chicken wings.
