It’s only been a week since the launch of the Buffalo Wing Trail, but the news of America’s Tastiest Drive has already spread far and wide. Over the past seven days, local and national news outlets, blogs, and travel sites across the world have taken notice of this spicy, saucy, Buffalo-style food trail.
Despite being one of the newest food trails to take flight, wings have soared to Popsugar’s Top 10 Best Food and Drink Trails to Explore in America. Noting that the trail’s inception was a no-brainer for Buffalo, Popsugar contributor Michele Herrmann writes, “It is only fitting that a trail about this style of chicken wings is being cooked up in the city where they came from.”
Immediately following the Buffalo Wing Trail world premiere, the Associated Press took things to a global level. Appearing in over 125 news outlets all over the globe, from the New York Times to the New Zealand Herald, folks learned the newest way to experience Buffalo’s finest regional food.
Buffalo’s most famous blue-collar bites even graced the pages of Food & Wine, which encouraged readers and wing lovers to “follow your spicy sauce-loving heart to over a dozen eateries chosen based on popularity, quality, and historical significance”. And if that didn’t fill you up, Buffalo-style stepped into the spotlight on LonelyPlanet.com in a piece titled, Chicken wing fans will be in a flap over the Buffalo Wing Trail in New York.
