These New Wings Are Now Available at Walmart Stores Nationwide
With the Super Bowl coming up on February 13, you may be looking for a healthful alternative to the run-of-the-mill chicken wing.
Just in time for primetime football season, Walmart has announced the release of LikeMeat's Like Chick'n Wings available at 3,600 store locations nationwide.
Gluten-free, certified plant-based, and made with non-GMO ingredients, Like Chick'n Wings are available in the retailer's freezer aisle in a one-pound family pack. Each pack includes a pouch of vegan buffalo sauce to toss and dip with. (For more exciting new grocery launches, check out 6 Things You'll See at Costco This Year.)
"Even the staunchest meat-lovers are fans of Like Chick'n Wings' satisfyingly crispy coating and juicy, bone-free, meaty texture," the brand states.
These soy-based wings run at 190 calories per three-wing serving with 1.9 grams of saturated fat and 11 grams of protein. In comparison, traditional chicken wings pack 264 calories per three-wing serving with 6.9 grams of saturated fat and 13.5 grams of protein.
"We're so excited to be partnering with Walmart; we're in it to wing it!" Emily Klooster, vice president of marketing for LikeMeat, said in a statement. "And the timing couldn't be better for us. During last year's big game, nearly 1.4 billion wings were consumed. We want to enlist Americans this year to make their game-day snacking plant-based without compromising on flavor—and having our delicious, party-ready Like Chick'n Wings available at a major retailer nationwide is the best way to accomplish our goal."
Following a plant-based diet may be trendy, but it's one regimen recommended by dietitians that will help reduce inflammation and support your immune system. While the healthiness of meat substitutes vary, opting for more plant-based foods has been shown to reduce the risk of health issues like high blood pressure, cancer, and cardiovascular disease.
