On Chicken Wings and Super Bowl XLVII

The Atlanta-Business Chronicle reports that chicken wing prices are the highest ever ahead of Super Bowl XLVII:

Chicken wing prices typically increase around the Super Bowl, but this year the ballgame favorite has reached a record high.

Wholesale wings are currently at about $2.11 a pound (Northeast), the highest on record at the U.S. Department of Agriculture, up 26 cents or 14 percent from a year earlier, according to The National Chicken Council.

The council says Americans will eat 1.23 billion chicken wings on Super Bowl Sunday. That’s down one percent from 2011 due to a shortage in the number of chicken wings produced.

There’s also this:

Meanwhile, here in metro Atlanta, two men were arrested for stealing $65,000 in frozen chicken from Nordic Cold Storage in the 4300 block of Pleasantdale Road in Doraville where they were employed, reports Fox 5 Atlanta.

Get your chicken while it’s hot, folks.
