    I recently saw a presentation at a trade show on this product, Chix Ribs, highlight are less bones, fully cooked, and 8% more meat than Large Wing Flats. I am interested?

    After all on the appetizer menu Wings are the most popular item in the U.S. at 17% of the mix.

    Has anyone else tried these?
    What is your perception of the product?
    What is the price per pound/box?

    I sell wings, strips and brest pieces (boneless chunks). I don't use tyson. Fresh wings . . . Patuxant chicken strip fritters and GoldKist bites.

    I sampled the chix ribs a while back, while deciding what wings to use.
    I did go with a Tyson product - but not the chix ribs. I would consider adding them to the menu, but I wouldn't use them inSTEAD of wings. If customers want wings, those ribs aren't going to seem right as a direct sub - they're just the wrong shape! But as a unique alternative option, sure!

    I dropped wings last year, cause sales just peter'd out. Plus the price of 1st and 2nd joints IQF went through the roof.

    I am looking for something original to bring back.
