Wings have been VERY expensive for a while now up here in the boonies of southwest New Hampshire -- typically $4.99/lb. while other cuts (especially bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs) would go on sale every other week or so for 99 cents/lb.

Oddly, in the past couple of months, wings have gone on sale a few times for $1.99/lb. They're on sale for that again starting today, and I really like them (despite how little meat they have compared to other cuts) so I will be stocking up!

When you're in the mood for wings, thighs or legs just won't do. And luckily I have lots of freezer space!

Yet many restaurants are still charging the higher pandemic price. I think the retailers are trying to squeeze as much profit out of the wing market as possible.
dont restaurants have menus?if they lower price of one item,they have to change the menu???
also price may go back up again,then they will have to change the menu again

Food prices have been going up and if you have to feed a family,what would you prefer-wiings or drumstick or breast?

We are still seeing high wing prices here with some restaurants averaging $1.67 - $2.00 a wing. Some restaurants even have them listed at market price on the menus.

I don’t see the prices coming down but the sizes of the wings seem to getting smaller!

Drum sticks and quarters. They are cheaper, WAY CHEAPER, & they provide more meat and in a stew, 1 or 2 can feed dinner to the family for 2-3 days. For me, one, the drum stick provides for the stew that lasts 7 days.
