I was in Costco yesterday, and their big bag of frozen wings, normally around $21 was over $32! Then I get a web flyer from Restaurant Depot today with wings on "special" for $3.65 lb, if you buy the 40 lb. case. I'm used to them going up some before the superbowl, but this is ridiculous.
same up here north of the 49th .
But did find last week chicken thighs and drums as 1 piece going for .97 cents a pound
and pork loins for $ 1.47. But wings are like gold
But not too often

I know, right! I should have known something was up when the menu at Quaker State said 'market price' next to an order of wings! And that was 2 weeks ago! I ended up paying $25 bucks for 12 wing piece with a fountain drink.
