Ready-To-Eat Chicken Wings



Jan 30th, 2014

chicken wings

Thanks to a comedy of errors at the home where the Super Bowl party was supposed to take place, I’ve been graciously volunteered to host. To me, the big game has very little to do with the game at all; it’s all about the food. Now, I do love to cook, but this food has to last all day. I’m not going to be parked in the kitchen all day, searing steaks and taking á la carte orders from a bunch of rowdies. No, I’d like to enjoy the game also. So I’m falling back on a winning strategy: Albertsons ready-to-eat chicken wings.

Albertsons offers a fantastic array of hot, ready-to-eat chicken wings. They’re made throughout the day and replenished regularly in a convenient self-serve display. Wing lovers can choose from Crispy Zesty, Honey BBQ, Crispy Buffalo, Salt and Vinegar Glazed, Buttery Buffalo Boneless, Sweet BBQ Boneless, Orange Glazed Boneless, and Savory Breaded. It’s nice that Albertsons offers a flavor for everyone; be it spicy, sweet, smoky, sour or salty. I grabbed several of each, just to be safe.

I put out a platter with each flavor of wings and an array of dipping sauces—blue cheese, ranch, BBQ, honey mustard, Frank’s and Sriracha—along with a couple of my own creations. I also served the Orange Glazed Boneless wings with fried rice made daily in the deli, and topped an Albertsons take-and-bake cheese pizza with Buttery Buffalo Boneless wings. I also paired Sweet BBQ Boneless wings with romaine lettuce, sliced cheese, and ranch dressing to make creamy, smoky tortilla wraps.

Drawing from past success with these tasty wings, I know I won’t have to worry about boxing up left-overs. Hopefully, there won’t be any last-minute party-hosting audibles next year. But if there are, I know how to win this game.

    Do these wings have gluten? I’ve had them and they are excellent.

    • Customer Care 13/04/2014 at 12:05 pm

      I’m glad you enjoy the wings, Wing Lover! Since our wings are handled, prepared and packaged in a food service environment; we cannot in good conscience, advise you that it does not contain gluten or other know allergens found within the Deli. I hope this information helps. ~Marie

    I never know how to count the pieces. is a wing EITHER one “Drummette” or “wingette” or is a WING 2 pc.

      Good question, Karen. The serving size for the Salt & Vinegar Wings is 3 oz. One serving has 250 calories and 170 calories are from fat (19 g of fat). If you need additional information or have other questions, please let us know. The deli at your favorite store can also give you further nutritional information. Thanks for stopping by our page. ~Kimberly

  5. Eric 12/06/2014 at 12:53 pm

    What are the nutrition facts for the buffalo style chicken wings? Mainly the carbs.

    • Customer Care 13/06/2014 at 9:35 am

      I’d be more than happy to get this information for you, Eric. Since product details are available in your local store deli, I’d like to check with them. Which Albertsons location do you normally shop? I hope to hear back from you soon. ~Kimberly

  6. Catharine May 13/06/2014 at 10:18 am

    When I asked the deli at my store for nutritional information, they said they can’t give it. I’d rather have the calories for an actual wing (drummette or wing/flat). I’m addicted to the salt and vinegar wings.

    • Customer Care 14/06/2014 at 6:54 pm

      I’ll be happy to see if I can get you that information, Catharine. Please email me at with your store location and preferred method of contact and I’ll do my best to get you that nutritional information. Thank you and I hope to hear from you soon. ~Marie

  7. Debbie 27/06/2014 at 6:11 pm

    Do your wings contain eggs?

  8. Dana 30/06/2014 at 11:23 am

    How much is 100 pc. of Fried Chicken?

    • Customer Care 30/06/2014 at 5:13 pm

      Hi Dana! If you’re referring to the Chicken Party Pack it generally runs around $79.99. My suggestion would be to contact your local store in case there are price variances. I hope you have a great rest of your week, and thank you for stopping by our blog! ~Shasta

  9. Dave 29/07/2014 at 5:59 pm

    Do you publish recipes for these wings? I’ve been looking for a good spicy, dry (no sauce), non-buffalo wing recipe and yours are great. Thank you.

  10. Hung 12/08/2014 at 12:48 pm

    Hi, my child is highly allergic to eggs and milk so I was wondering if your fried chicken uses either.

    • Customer Care 12/08/2014 at 4:13 pm

      We’d be happy to research that allergen information, Hung. Which Albertsons do you generally shop at? We hope to hear back from you soon. ~Zachary

  11. Kimberly Stuhr 17/08/2014 at 11:08 am

    Can you get your fried chicken pack you have shipped to me and how much would it cost?

    Thank you,

    Kimberly Stuhr

    • Customer Care 18/08/2014 at 1:23 am

      Hi, Kimberly. At this time we do not have delivery options available to ship direct to customers. Please contact your store for pricing information as they may vary. Hope this helps! ~Victor

  12. John Sapyta 12/09/2014 at 1:46 pm

    Do all your Albertson caring the Hot Wings bar, or just certain stores, cause I live by two of your stores and one of them does have this.

    Just curious if this is true or not?

    • Customer Care 13/09/2014 at 1:43 am

      Hello, John. The majority of our locations will have a hot wings bar available. If you would like us to check a specific location for you, we will be more than happy to do so. ~Victor

  13. Tiffany 15/09/2014 at 9:40 am

    Fresh chicken always seems to be better, how fresh is yours?

  14. MXCTRL 17/09/2014 at 9:06 pm

    Where can I find the nutritional counts for all of your variety of precooked chicken wings?

  15. rita 16/12/2014 at 10:51 am

    Do I need to preorder 100 hot wings for Christmas eve?

    • Customer Care 16/12/2014 at 10:50 pm

      Great question, Rita. I’d recommend contacting the store at least 72 hours in advance to ensure they’ll have your wings ready for you. If you need anything else, please let me know. ~Cindy

  16. Robin 01/02/2015 at 2:08 pm

    I picked up a pre-packed package of hot wings in my local grocery store deli. Can they be heated and if so, what are the heating instructions.

    • Customer Care 02/02/2015 at 6:08 am

      We will be happy to find out for you, Robin. Can you let us know which location you purchased the wings from? ~Victor

  17. Joy 02/02/2015 at 4:14 pm

    Do your wings contain dairy? My daughter is highly allergic and had a stomach ache the next day after eating. We are just trying to isolate if this was the issue. It would have been the buffalo wings.


    • Customer Care 02/02/2015 at 10:40 pm

      I can certainly find out for you, Joy. Can you please let me know the store location you purchased them from? I look forward to your reply. ~Cindy

  18. Marie 26/02/2015 at 7:54 pm

    A couple people have asked for the nutritional value of the salt and vinegar wings. Could you share that information please?
    That is what I was hoping to find here also.

    • Customer Care 01/03/2015 at 4:16 pm

      Hi Marie, to further assist you in finding the nutritional information for those Salt and Vinegar wings, can we have the location of the store that you shop at most? Thank you! ~Thomas

  19. Roxann 22/04/2015 at 4:41 pm

    Hi, I keep asking my deli what happen to the sweet chicken wings that they use to sell many years ago, the manager thought it was a mango sauce , it had pineapple
    in it , it was so good and wish someone could get me the recipe, or that you would bring it back.

    • Customer Care 23/04/2015 at 6:32 am

      Hi there, Roxann. We would be happy to look into these Sweet Chicken Wings you used to be able to get. What store location do you shop at the most? We await your response. ~Stephanie

  20. Roxann 26/04/2015 at 5:40 pm

    I shop at Renton Sunset store 4621 Ne Sunset Blvd
    Renton, Washington 98059

  21. Anthony 29/05/2015 at 6:45 am

    Do you have a wingbar at the store in GIG HARBOR, WA ?! and if so what time are they ready by? I have a work party and these are wonderful!!

    • Customer Care 29/05/2015 at 2:53 pm

      Yes we do, Anthony. We try to put the wings out by 9:00 AM. I hope we can bring flavor to your event. ~Liralen

  22. Brenda 06/06/2015 at 12:04 pm

    Just had some of the prepared wings. Delicious. However I need to know calories and fat per wing for my diet. Thanks.

  23. Kerri 25/06/2015 at 3:45 pm

    Hi from the UK! My boyfriend just returned from visiting his family in Eagle, Idaho & is raving about your salt & vinegar chicken wings!! Sadly we cannot find anywhere that does them in our country & wondered if you could perhaps give us a recipe to try ourselves? It’s a long way to travel for some wings otherwise! Thank you

  24. Roxann 20/08/2015 at 6:58 pm

    I have never had a reply back on the sweet wings that you use to prepare in the deli, back in the early 1980’s , somebody has to know about this I would think and what that recipe was since you don’t have them any longer, I do remember there was pineapple chunks in the sauce, or please bring them back, my store said they were popular.

    • Customer Care 22/08/2015 at 7:51 am

      Good morning, Roxann. Our deli recipes are kept top secret, but I’ll relay the request to bring back those tasty wings. Have a great day! ~Jenna

  25. Marie Too 07/11/2015 at 11:37 am

    I shop at the Kingston WA Albertsons and avoid dairy. Does the recipe for any of your chicken wings use buttermilk in the recipe? How about the fried chicken? I realize it is a food service environment and you cannot guarantee something with dairy won’t touch my chicken but does the RECIPE specifically INCLUDE dairy. Thank you.

    • Customer Support 10/11/2015 at 10:12 am

      Thank you for your inquiry, Marie. We recommend speaking with the Deli Department for nutritional information. They will be able to assist you with your inquiry. -Savannah

  26. David 03/12/2015 at 8:03 pm

    Would love to be able to buy the “Salt and Vinegar” Powder Seasoning that Albertson’s uses on their chicken wings, it is the best and would like to be able to use it on pop corn, and baked chicken nuggets at home.

    • Customer Support 06/12/2015 at 1:20 pm

      Glad to hear you enjoy the seasoning, David. We’ll be sure to forward your suggestions to our Product Buyers for further review. Thank you for your time. -Julio

  27. Jen 15/12/2015 at 1:45 pm

    The spicy wings are way to salty and taste like it’s been left out for a while..

    • Customer Support 20/12/2015 at 1:20 pm

      Thanks for letting us know, Jen. Which store location did you visit? -Julio

  28. denise 21/12/2015 at 8:52 pm

    May I have a recipe for the zesty punch crispy chicken wings please. I am totally addicted to these wings. I shop at Las Vegas Albertsons, and omg they are so so yummy.

    • Customer Support 27/12/2015 at 5:25 pm

      Hi, Denise. We are unable to provide the recipe. However, we suggest checking out our recipes on our website here for similar recipes. We hope this helps! -Julio

  29. Sherri 07/02/2016 at 12:37 pm

    Regarding the deli chicken wings, why aren;t nutrition facts avilable online? It seems all the answers are “ask at the deli” or “give me your email and I’ll send it to you”. Seems if Albertsons stands behind thier deli projects this info should be readily available. I would like to be able to compare nutrition facts for each of the recipes so I can choose the right flavor for me and my family. My Albertsons is in Carlsbad, CA if that helps.

    • Customer Support 09/02/2016 at 12:08 pm

      Sherri, we apologize for this experience. Just to clarify, are you referring to the location on 3450 Marron Rd? -Julio

  30. Des 15/03/2016 at 12:25 pm

    How many calories in one of the wings? I asked for nutritional info at deli counter the clerk very unfriendly and unhelpful. I tried searching on the website but no luck.

    • Customer Support 15/03/2016 at 5:15 pm

      Des, could you tell us which store location you happened to visit? We’d like to address this with the Store Director. We suggest speaking with the Deli Manager for more information. -Julio

  31. Pat Reyes 09/05/2016 at 1:29 pm

    Can you give me the Carb count for your crispy buffalo wings on the Chicken wing bar.

    • Customer Support 10/05/2016 at 11:49 am

      Pat, for our Buffalo Style Chicken Wings (UPC 02113009607), there are 3g of carbs per serving. Hope this helps! Felicia

  32. Mary 09/07/2016 at 9:04 am

    I <3 your salt and vinegar wings! Can you tell me what the carb count is for them. (Phoenix store)

  33. Susie Wilkens 11/07/2016 at 6:09 pm

    I asked for the nutritional information at the deli counter where I shop almost everyday. They said they did not have it. They said they already come prepared and they just cook them, so they don’t have that information.
    I shop at the Lucky store on Howard Ave in
    San Carlos….so please tell me where I can find the complete nutritional information for your salt and vinegar wings. It is a law that it is made public. So please just answer the question.
    I will provide my email below. If I don’t hear and answer within 24 hours I will check with the FDA

  34. Tricia Vagt 23/01/2017 at 1:58 pm

    Are the wings made from no antibiotics chicken?

    • Customer Support 24/01/2017 at 2:23 pm

      Tricia, we have reached out to you via email for more details. We look forward to hearing from you. -Julio

  35. Daphne 19/02/2017 at 1:59 pm

    My daughter just ate some of your salty vinegar chicken-wings. She had a reaction where her lips swelled, became itchy and painful. Could I get the complete list of ingredients? Thank you.

    • Customer Support 20/02/2017 at 6:10 pm

      Daphne, thank you for making us aware. We suggest returning to the store and filing an incident report with the Store Director. The Deli will also have this information available at their counter. We hope this helps! -Julio

  36. Daphne 22/02/2017 at 12:34 pm

    Thank you Julio!

  37. kim 13/07/2017 at 11:37 pm


    I see a chicken bucket is sold with wedges and regular fried chicken wings. Was wondering if it would be possible to get a bucket of chicken wings only as well as get flavored chicken wings instead of just the regular fried wings?

    • Customer Support 14/07/2017 at 10:30 am

      Hi Kim. We suggest contacting your local store as pricing and selection may differ from location to location. Thank you! -Jayme

  38. Crystal 27/07/2017 at 9:27 pm

    We live in Santa Maria California. The local Albertson’s on Broadway never has any selection of wings. They carry the zesty and the plain. have called in advance to ask them to make some salt and vinegar for me. I was told that they do not carry the packets for the salt and vinegar as it does not sell. I don’t understand how hard it is to simply carry the packets in the back to keep a valued customer happy. This location never goes above and beyond for anything. That being said, the store in Orcutt, which is not even five miles away carries them everyday.
    Does that make any sense at all?

    • Customer Support 29/07/2017 at 4:38 pm

      Crystal, we apologize for the inconvenience. We do show the Salt and Vinegar Chicken Wings as an available item for the Santa Maria location. We have shared your concerns with the Store Director, and our Merchandisers for review. Thank you. -Cornelius

  39. joanne 24/08/2017 at 8:38 pm

    Salt & Vinegar Glazed – wow. It is the most delicious chicken wing I have ever had, in my entire 32 year life! I’ve lived in several countries and wow, that chicken wing was the best.

    • Customer Support 29/08/2017 at 7:49 pm

      Joanne, that’s awesome! Which location did you visit? We’d like to share your feedback. Thanks for shopping with us! -Cornelius

  40. Thomas Lincoln 04/10/2017 at 4:26 pm

    Can you tell me what seasoning is used on your ranch wings?

    • Customer Support 04/10/2017 at 5:14 pm

  41. Jess 11/01/2018 at 5:13 pm

    Is there a specific brand of BBQ used on the wings? Or a way to buy it so we can use the sauce on other food?

    Obviously the barbecue sauce is amazing.

    • Customer Support 17/03/2018 at 11:44 pm

  46. Joyce 13/05/2018 at 12:53 am

    Why did Albertsons in Palmdale California stop making honey BBQ chicken wings? That was my favorite. I buy them in buckets.

    • Customer Support 13/05/2018 at 10:50 am

      Hello Joyce, we are very sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you. We have forwarded a request on your behalf to let them know that you are looking for this flavor to be brought back. Have a wonderful day! -Wendy

  47. Jane 04/06/2018 at 8:20 pm

    I simply love Albertsons selection of chicken wings. I drive about 5 miles to the store near me in OC, CA so I can buy them. Happily passing up other supermarkets till I get my to my ALBERTSONS WING BAR!
    I try them all. are these available uncooked? or frozen in anyway? I want to take a few dozen and travel about 5 hours away and I am not sure they will travel well. I don’t want frozen chicken wings from Tyson, I am specifically looking for Albertson wings to travel with me to my destination. Thanks

    • Customer Support 04/06/2018 at 11:27 pm

      Hello Jane! We appreciate your loyalty, it means the world to us! We’d like to look into the availability of our chicken wings for you.

  48. Monica 08/08/2018 at 3:35 pm

    Hello! My family loves your hot honey breaded wings. It’s our go-to item for parties and potlucks. I just visited your store in Baldwin Hills and was informed that the honey wings were discontinued. Is there a reason why? Thanks!

    • Customer Support 08/08/2018 at 9:07 pm

      Monica, we’re sorry to hear this. Are you referring to the location on 3901 Crenshaw Blvd in LA? We’d like to look into this further for you. Thanks! -Cornelius

  49. Janise Dava 18/09/2018 at 3:46 pm

    Can they cater to parties?

  50. Allie 19/09/2018 at 11:13 am

    Can you tell me the nutrition info for the buffalo style wings on your bar? I called the Deli and they said all they have is calorie information but I need the whole nutrition face(fats, carbs, protein, sugars). I mostly go to the Broussard, LA location.

  51. daniela 26/10/2018 at 12:38 pm

    do you guys have a platter option

  52. Ludici 20/01/2019 at 10:08 pm

    I was wondering how much carbs the sea salt & vinegar chicken wings have, the one I shop at is Beach Blvd, 92683 in Westminster.

    • Customer Support 21/01/2019 at 12:22 pm
