How many chicken wings will Americans eat this Super Bowl Sunday?
According to the USDA, the answer is estimated to be 2 billion. Yes, with a B.
That’s a lot of wings, but even the more conservative estimate from the National Chicken Council estimates that 1.38 billion wings will be consumed during Super Bowl LIII. NCC projects Americans’ consumption of the unofficial gameday menu staple – the chicken wing – will hit an all-time high at 1.38 billion wings during Super Bowl LIII weekend, as the Los Angeles Rams and New England Patriots battle for the Lombardi Trophy. This figure is up two percent, or about 27 million wings, from 2018.
How many wings is 1.38 billion? If 1.38 billion wings were laid end to end, they would stretch 28 times from Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts to Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
