The Super Bowl is around the corner and I cannot be more thrilled. The New York Giants are playing (Woohoo!) and it's my yearly excuse to devour all the delicious, unhealthy goodness that I deprive myself of.
I absolutely love appetizers and h'orderves so when given the chance to plan, I make sure there's plenty of jalapeño poppers, mozzarella sticks, onion rings, fries, quesadilla rolls, bean dip and pretty much any cheesy appetizer I'm allowed to make or buy.
But it's no secret that buffalo wings are the classic Super Bowl dish. I would have guessed Pizza, but according to the National Chicken Council, Americans are predicted to consume 1.25 billion chicken wings (around 100 million pounds) this Super Bowl weekend alone!
What does that put the yearly projection? The Council predicts that in 2012 Americans will consume 25 billion wings. If you do the math, then Super Bowl weekend will account for over 5% of the yearly total!
On that note, The Huffington Post recently posted a "Wing Chart" that can allegedly figure out your wing personality. I answered the questions twice, but got the wrong answers both times! Check out the chart below.
Was the chart accurate for you? Will you be having buffalo wings this Super Bowl? Which team will you be rooting for?
