We love wings. And when you find the best wing sauce recipe, you just don’t want to stop eating them. But eating wings is a process that can, quite frankly, get out of hand very quickly. When you pick up your first wing you’re thinking, I got this, I can just contain the mess to four fingers. Then the wings are slipping and sliding and before long your hands and palms are covered in buffalo sauce. No problem, you think, I have napkins, I just have to contain the mess to my hands. But as you continue to eat, you feel wing sauce slowly building up around your mouth. At first, you try to wipe it off after every bite, but then you talk yourself out of it- Don’t want to keep wasting napkins, I’ll just wipe my mouth off at the end.
And then, finally, there’s the moment you can’t come back from. The moment where the mess goes from an easy napkin wipe to a day’s worth of fixing. You grab a wing and dunk it heartily into the dipping sauce. You reach toward your face but just as you’re about to take a bite… plop. A huge chunk of dipping sauce lands smack-dab in the middle of your shirt. You drop what you’re doing and try frantically to wipe it off, but you already know there’s no easy fix for that stain.
We hate to see tragedies such as this occur so we created an invention that has you covered (literally). Our Jokari Less Mess Platter is designed with a dip rim to help scoop off access dip and prevent dipping sauces from soiling your shirts. To further get the most out of your wing-eating experience, here are some of the best wing sauce recipes to help take your wings to the next level (just not on the Scoville scale).
