McDonald's Mighty Wings available in Miami Valley


Mighty Wings have finally landed in the market.

The fried, bone-in chicken wings are now being sold at McDonald’s Miami Valley locations.

McDonald’s wings will be available at participating locations while supplies last through November and served as ‘drummettes’ and ‘wingettes.’ They can be paired with one of nine sauces that range from sweet to tangy to bold.

The release was done to coincide with the start of NFL season.

“Chicken wings are one of the most commonly ordered items at sit-down restaurants while watching sports,” said Ed Donnelly, President, McDonald’s Restaurants of the Miami Valley. “By adding Mighty Wings to our menu this fall, we want to bring the popularity and fun of chicken wings to customers looking for any reason to order them – be it during game day or on-the-go.”

Football and wings go hand and feather.

Americans ate more than 1.23 billion chicken wings during Super Bowl weekend alone, according to the National Chicken Council’s 2013 Wing Report.

What do you think?

Are Mighty Wings in fact mighty wings? How do they stack up against the ones from you favorite sports bar?
