Best Store Bought Chicken Wings?

So, I was just wondering which brand of chicken wings do people prefer and which flavors, as well as which grocery stores carry them? I've tried a couple of brands, of which I don't remember which, but they didn't taste all that good.

Believe it or not, but the No Name chicken wings are pretty good.
It's pronounced Throat Wobbler Mangrove

Far and away, Pinty's Buffalo Wings are the best store bought ones I have had. They must have become really popular because they got pretty expensive so I don't buy them as much anymore but they are good.

PS. They do make them for other retailers but I am not sure who so some no name brands may be Pinty's.

Costco's Kirkland brand wings (and generally most of their food) is quite good, flavourful and meaty. M&M Meatshops on the other hand, while at a good price, have weak flavours and are tiny.

Might be cheating but the freshly prepared wings at Zehrs' and Sobey's in Waterloo were outstanding. Haven't bought grocery store wings in the GTA in years but I think the Loblaws ones are pretty good too. If you want frozen, I remember this one brand who's wings came in black plastic bags and they were pretty tasty...can't remember the name though.

You can get the Costco Pinty's ones at Sam's Club too. But the main advantage of Sam's is that they come in smaller packages, but the price / kg is identical. So at Sam's you can get a greater variety of wings for the same net price.

I can't remember the brand name but my favourite ones come in a squarish box (either mild or spicy) and they usually sell at Loblaws for $11.99. I think they taste amazing!

This is one thing I've never found. I've tried lots of them, frozen/boxed wings... M&M, Pinty's, various PC wings, Schniders, etc. and every single time I'm disappointed. Some of them are "ok" but I haven't been able to call any of them even "good" yet. :(

Same here, I have tried them all and nothing nearly as good as baked chicken wings at some pizza joints. I'm still on my quest to find decent frozen wings
