MISSION: GET INTO YOUR COMFORT ZONE
Anchor Bar Buffalo
crave Buffalo wings at least once in awhile? They're
chewy, crispy, juicy, tangy, sweet, buttery and spicy
all at once. And they're a perfect reason to
indulge in copious amounts of creamy bleu cheese without
anyone casting a withering glance in your direction.
The next time
you and your friends get the hankering for a Buffalo
wing feast, don’t just settle for any old
chicken wings. You could end up with a greasy, bland
pile of bones and half-plucked feathers. Instead,
treat yourself and your guests to the ultimate Buffalo chicken wings—the
ones that come straight from the Anchor Bar in
Buffalo, New York, where this tasty chicken treat was invented.
That’s when, in 1964, bar owner Teressa Bellissimo whipped up a recipe for her son
and his friends who, like many young men today, stopped by
the bar to hang out and grub free food. Using the parts of
the wings that usually went into the stock pot for soup,
she deep fried them and coated them with a secret sauce.
They were an instant hit. Before long, her newly dubbed
"Buffalo wings" were a regular part of their menu and
menus in restaurants all over the world.
Don’t just get the
Anchor Bar chicken wings because you can
boast that they’re the original and are still made right
in the same kitchen as the first ones were 42 years ago. Get them because they’re also the
best. The hot sauce is buttery, tangy and as spicy as
you dare to get. And the chicken is chosen for its
quality, producing meaty, juicy wings with a crispy
The best part?
They're a cinch to serve. The Anchor Bar delivers their
wings frozen yet fully cooked anywhere in the continental U.S.
Mailed overnight in a a chilled container, they'll be
thawed by the time you receive them. All you need to do
is heat them up for 10 to 15 minutes and they're ready
to serve. They even throw in complimentary bleu cheese
and celery, making this a perfect treat for a Buffalo
which, with minimum mailed orders of 50, 100 or 150
wings, they're probably too much for just one person.
But with TV premiere season here, what better excuse to
invite your girlfriends over for a nosh-and-watch? With
all those wings, you can make a game out of eating them.
