Americans to Eat Record 1.4 Billion Chicken Wings for Super Bowl

Americans are projected to consume a record-breaking 1.4 billion wings during the upcoming Super Bowl weekend, two percent more than in 2019.

That translates into Americans eating 27 million more wings during this year’s big game weekend versus last year’s.

National Chicken Council spokesperson Tom Super says when it comes to Super Bowl menus, “Wings rule the roost.”

The council asked wing-eaters about their habits, and roughly two thirds of Americans (65 percent) who eat chicken wings claim they like to do so while watching a major sporting event like the Super Bowl. More than half (51 percent) claim that they believe chicken wings should be the official food of the Super Bowl.
