By now, you’ve heard reports about a chicken wing shortage in our great US of A.
The news made many Super Bowl fans panic and probably caused a large chunk of them to brainstorm other great alternatives – including us. TIME later reported that there was indeed no shortage, but more like a “crisis” because of a sharp rise in prices for wings.
