If you’re reading this, you must have heard about our Chicken Wing ice cream (or maybe you’re simply trying to find who is crazy enough to make such a thing). Well, you’ve come to the right place!
Sorry to disappoint (or not), but this flavor was actually just an April Fool’s Day prank a few years back. When we posted about this flavor to our Facebook page in 2013, we never anticipated how much attention and interest we would get about this flavor, not only then but for many years to come.

Facebook Post Announcing Chicken Wing Ice Cream
Facebook Post Announcing April Fool’s Joke
The general response from our followers when we posted our prank was a resounding “ew, gross” (with a couple of requests for us to make Beef on Weck flavored ice cream next), but there were a few people with adventurous appetites eager to get their hands on this flavor.
The above comment is a notable mention: Matthew, we love you, Buffalo loves you, but celery and carrot sprinkles… you took it too far.
Our Chicken Wing ice cream prank certainly got everyone talking though (good, bad and ugly), and some of you are still talking about it today, 8 years later. Seriously, type “Perry’s Ice Cream chicken wing” in the search bar on Facebook and this is the results page (these photos are dated anywhere from 2013 to 2020):
And every once in a while (ok honestly it happens a lot), we see the prank carton photo floating around on Twitter or popping up in our mentions:
While we love your enthusiasm, brand ambassadorship, and occasional downright disgust for our Chicken Wing ice cream, we’re delighted to inform you that we have absolutely no plans of making this flavor, now or ever (we love unique ice cream flavors as much as the next guy, but we’ll be staying away from anything poultry-related).
However, if you’re someone who was really excited about trying this flavor, or you’re simply a true Buffalonian through and through, we’ve put together a short list of flavors you may like:
Since you’re looking at Chicken Wing ice cream, we’re going to guess that you like your foods hot and spicy. Well, eat your heart out, because we’ve got the perfect fiery flavor for you. Fireball is cinnamon flavored ice cream with cinnamon flavored swirls and cinnamonette candies.
2. Northern Lights
Looking for an ice cream that packs a punch? (Obviously you are). Our Northern Lights flavor has sour green apple, blue raspberry, and grape flavored sherbet, perfect for the adventurous type!
3. Brownie Blitz & Let’s Dough Buffalo!®
So, if you’re passionate enough about chicken wings to be looking at Chicken Wing ice cream, you’re probably passionate about Buffalo and Buffalo sports. We suggest giving a try to our 2 Buffalo sports co-branded flavors. Let’s Dough Buffalo!® is the official ice cream of the Buffalo Sabres. It contains cookie dough ice cream with crushed cookie swirls and cookie dough pieces. Brownie Blitz is the official ice cream of the Buffalo Bills. This flavor is French vanilla ice cream with fudge swirls and brownie dough pieces. Even if you’re not into sports, these flavors are still a fan favorite.
4. Deep Sea Treasure
Sweet and salty? Look no further than Deep Sea Treasure: caramel ice cream with salty caramel swirls and caramel sea salt truffles. Not quite chicken wing salty, but salty enough for an ice cream.
Although we may not have Chicken Wing, we do have a variety of unique ice cream, frozen yogurt, sherbet & sorbet, novelty, and scoop shop flavors for you to try! Check them out today.
