I bought these wings the last time they were on special and didn't like them, I think the sauce is included in the weight of the package, much better to buy fresh ones, Freshco (Bathurst and Steeles) sell roaster wings, they're larger and are great on the BBQ.

Of course fresh is better. Even if we assume that 1/3 of that 1.2kg is the sauce, That would still be $7.49/kg for the chicken, which is about $3.40/lb. Wings are expensive and if they're not on special, fresh ones can be priced at around $5 to $6/lb.

I agree but
I'll spend the extra cash and get fresh, these frozen ones shrink quite abit after they're cooked, they do not compare to fresh ones. I usually buy 8-10lbs of fresh ones and vacuum pack them in packs of 10. (I cut the tips off)

I remember 2 years they were selling them for $5 for a 2lb bag (no sauce)

FYI for all, the sauce is about 200g. At least on the package I got last time when I measured it. Meaning there is about 1kg of wings. Works out to about 2.72/lb of wings.

+1 was not impressed by these wings. Once cooked (following instructions on the package), they were tiny and dried out.
Not saying it's not a deal.. just that these aren't great wings.
This space for rent.

I agree the wings aren't good, they have way too much fat on them at least that was my experience after 2 purchases I gave up.

Why compare fresh to frozen?
You can compare frozen to this frozen (minus the sauce).
I can't remember how much IQFs are at Costco but I'm pretty sure they were under $3/lb. I tried searching historically but apparently they've never been on sale.

That honestly sounds like a terrible idea TBH.
A marinade in orange juice maybe, but cooking in orange juice implies braising which to me returns mushy meat.
Wings should be fried.

I don't know why it's considered a hot deal. Grocery stores have constant specials, I'd only consider it a hot deal if it's some insanely discounted price.

Grocery threads are contained in their own grocery category. If I'm not interested in a category, I just don't open it up. If people are extremely interested in saving money, why not do it on stuff that is needed? I see deals posted in the electronics category all the time that are regular price.

If a grocery thread of this type bothers you, simply hit the 'hide this thread' button the first time you see it, and you'll never see it again.
I do it with threads that do not interest me and it works.

Personally, I appreciate the opinions of those who have tried the product - in the case of these chicken wings, they are discounted 40%, but no one who tried them liked them.
If they had rave reviews, it would be something I'd consider trying.

Instead of trying to change the forum to suit you, use the options RFD has available to modify it to make it work better for you.
