    • Ikea Singapore to temporarily stop selling chicken wings after complaints from customers

       

      Ikea Singapore will stop selling chicken wings, a popular snack among shoppers at the furniture stores, from next Tuesday (May 23) for a period of time.

      The Swedish chain said in a Facebook post on Friday afternoon that it will improve on the wings before bringing them back.

      "We are aware that our chicken wings have not been meeting our customers' satisfaction recently, so we have decided to stop selling them temporarily from 23 May so we can improve on them," said the post that was put up at about 3pm.

      "Together with our supplier, we are committed to providing quality food products for everyone. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your continued support."

      Ikea told The Straits Times that it received customer feedback about the wings' "taste and texture". It does not know how long it will take to improve them, but said: "We hope to find a solution as soon as possible."

      The post was met with numerous comments from Facebook users, some of whom gave their opinion of the chicken wings served at the store's cafes.

      "Ya the chicken wings were cold hard and looked like they have been fried more than once. Look forward to having the nice juicy wings again!" said Sue Ng.

      "I used to love your chicken wings but after (I visited) last month I'm disheartened," said Oh Leng Kiong.

      Some said the slip in food standards was not a recent phenomenon.

      "I stopped liking the chicken wings some two years ago. They don't taste the same anymore.," wrote Jophrey Lim. "But I'm glad Ikea listened and decided to do something about it."

      There are cafes at both of Ikea's Singapore stores in Alexandra Road and in Tampines.

    • wings are big business thought, they are a rare commodity now that everyone is eating them.  every chicken only has 2 wings but we can polish them a dozen with no problem.  when MacD launched chicken wings - they literally stockpiled for 12 months!

      so prob price just went up!
