Hey sports fans! With Super Bowl Sunday just days away, I’m sure you’re all getting ready for the big game. Wondering which faux-chicken wings will score a touchdown with your hungry guests? We can help you with that.

Earlier today, Miami Dolphins running back Ricky Williams hosted our Faux-Chicken Wing Taste Test at his Miami restaurant, Proof Restaurant and Lounge. And the results are in … Gardein Classic Style Buffalo Wings are the MVP of faux-chicken wings!

Ricky, a longtime vegetarian, knows that the best way to tackle cruelty to chickens and other animals raised and killed for food is to simply stop eating them.

Here’s hoping that today’s taste test results will encourage meat-eaters to give some little birds a break and go with Gardein’s Classic Style Buffalo Wings instead, or any of the other fabulous faux-chicken wings available in grocery stores everywhere!

After all, wings are for flying, and sometimes hugging, but not for eating.

Check out the photos from today’s event below.

    kristin, it was a competition between all the faux chickens that he tried.. Are they the best faux wings in the world? Probably not, but they were the best out of the bunch that most people can buy at their grocery store.

    Compared to what? What did Gardein beat to win best wings? Was it compared to other brands or to chicken? If other brands, which ones?

    Born and bred in Britain. I've always lived with animals and loved finding out new information/ caring about them. I currently do eat meat although I am not a huge lover and I do intend on going vegetarian when I'm older. I've always wanted to support charities and I am the head fund raiser at my school. I am looking forward to supporting Peta and becoming a member of their Street Team!

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
