It stands to reason that by now, you’ve heard that McDonald’s has chicken wings at some locations (they’re called “Mighty Wings”). You may or may not have heard that they’re now offering them in more locations.

According to the Associated Press, the fast food chain is pressing on with an expanded test of the offering, but has yet to confirm a full U.S. launch. The wings hit Chicago this week, reportedly, in three-piece, five-piece and ten-piece options.

As a longtime chicken wing fan, it’s hard for me to wrap my head around this offering not being a hot seller, warranting a wider release, but of course, it has to make financial sense for the company. Then, I suppose, there’s always the question of whether or not people really want their chicken wings from the restaurant more known for burgers and McNuggets.

Opinions vary:

    Well would you look at that? All the tweets are from the ethnic community. Racist much?

      “Ethnic” community? Actually, race was never even considered until you brought it up, so well done. It was a story about chicken wings. You just made it about race.
