Plucky Eating: Buffalo Wing Bar at Kroger

Kroger's Buffalo Wing Bar

I'm a latecomer to the world of buffalo wings. I didn't grow up eating them (in fact, there was a definite period in my youth during which I thought some sort of winged buffalo creature actually existed), and my initial wing experiences in early adulthood were unfortunately at lackluster chain restaurants.

My appreciation for buffalo wings has grown considerably in the last few years, thanks largely to my husband, whose love of wings and intrepid cooking skills have led to the creation of some delicious inventively sauced and spiced wings.

Despite, however, being spoiled by the availability of small-batch homemade wings, I still have managed to find some good mass-market chicken wings in various flavors. Where? Kroger, of all places.

The wing bar at Fresh Market is very good too.

What boggles my mind is my Dad used to give away wings for stock back in the 70-80's for free when someone bought chicken; now they're like $6 or more a pound. Weirder yet the place with the best price on wings around me is whole paycheck, and they're damn fine wings at that.


Fresh Market has a chicken wing bar as well.
