The Ravens are crowing over Super Bowl – But Is There a Shortage of Chicken Wings?
Not only was Barbadian Ramon Harewood part of the Baltimore Ravens who won this year’s Super Bowl, but even food in the USA for the popular event featured Bajan style cuisine… Colette Burnett, owner of Super Wings New York, announced her restaurants served over 2 tons of chicken wings for Super Bowl Sunday.
“We have been marinating wings around the clock,” stated Burnett. “Our customers were concerned because of the rumor on the shortage of wings. What occurred was an increase in price and the chicken producers cut back causing a temporary shortage on the supply.”
Chicken lovers need not worry because Super Wings New York has 2 locations in Brooklyn, and are on target to sell more than one ton of wings per store on Super Bowl Sunday, serving up their world famous Bajan Merry Mango wing sauce. The wings are simmered in traditional Caribbean ingredients including mango, which is currently featured on Bobby Deen’s, ‘Not My Mama’s Meals,’ airing both on the Food Network and the Cooking Channel.
The Bajan Merry Mango is a sweet, yet tangy wing sauce and has the dubious honor of being named by local customers as the official Super Wings New York 2013 Super Bowl Wing Flavor. According to the National Chicken Council during Super Bowl Weekend, Americans will consume 1.23 billion chicken wings. Super Wings N.Y. serves up thirteen (13) wing flavors, and there is a sauce to represent almost every island in the English-speaking Caribbean. The ingredients are made entirely from Caribbean flavors including; Pineapple Jerk, Ginger Buff, and Island BBQ all inspired by Colette’s’ native Trinidad and Tobago where recipes are a tantalizing blend of mainly African, East Indian, European, Chinese, Middle Eastern and Mediterranean culinary traditions.
Burnett has gained national recognition in the United States: she won the Food Network Thrown Down with Iron Chef Bobby Flay, and Super Wings was voted “Best Wings In Brooklyn” and placed #3 in the “Restaurant Sauce Off” creative spicy category at the 10th Annual National Buffalo Wing Festival in Buffalo, N.Y.
“Super Bowl Weekend is great time for parties with family, and friends all culminating in the largest carry out day of the year for us,” stated Burnett and continues, “We have extended our hours and are looking forward to being a part of our customers Super Bowl celebration.” To order your very own Bajan Merry Mango wings or any of the other 12 flavors please call and or visit one of Super Wings New York locations or log onto www.mysuperwings.net.
