Chicken wings.

Expect to pay a lot more for one of America's most popular Super Bowl snacks. Chicken wing prices are higher right now than they've been the past three years leading up to the big game.

That's because fewer chicken are going to slaughter, and demand for wings around the country remains very high.

However, there is good news! Wings are expected to be more plump than usual because American chicken farmers are giving their poultry extra feed thanks to lower corn and soybean costs.
