This week is the start of NFL Training Camps all over the country, and you know what that means… football season is officially beginning! With football season comes tailgates, and tailgates are the perfect opportunity to grill up some of your favorites. Quaker Valley has many great-on-the-grill products, including beef, pork, and seafood.
However, if you’re watching from home, root for your favorite team over another classic gameday food: wings! The classic chicken wing was born in Buffalo, NY, when a local restaurant owner cooked leftover wings in hot sauce and found huge success. During the time chicken wings were gaining popularity in the U.S., sports bars were also becoming common. Being inexpensive and great for sharing in groups, wings were a hit during football games at these bars. The chicken wing has been associated with football ever since.
If the start of the football season wasn’t enough to get you in the mood for wings, National Chicken Wing Day is tomorrow, July 27! Celebrate by contacting your sales rep for more information on all the chicken wings we have to offer.
