First day of August is National Chicken Wing Day
Buffalo, BBQ, Teriyaki, Jamaican Jerk, mild, medium, hot, spicy, whatever your pleasure, chicken wings have become an American staple at bars and restaurants.
Today, August 1st, is National Chicken Wing Day. According to nationalchickencouncil.org, Americans ate 1.3 billion chicken wings for this year's Super Bowl, enough for every man, woman and child in the United States to have four wings each.
By the way, on July 11, competitive eater Joey Chestnut won the fifth annual Hooters Worldwide Wing Eating Championship by consuming 194 Hooters wings in 10 minutes.
