This just in from the WINGERS news room!

Buffalo Nickel™ WINGERS have become “award winning.” Shapeyou.com a popular health and fitness website, announced that Buffalo Nickel WINGERS, the “unique potato wing snack,” took home awards for Top Gear of the Year, Great Gear of the Year and Seal of Excellence Awards in this year’s Natural & Organic Products GearAwards™. ShapeYou.com’s judges are industry professionals from the worlds of trainers, nutritionists, health care practitioners, health food storeowners and more.

WINGERS, an all-natural, potato-based snack that’s shaped like a mini drumstick, is available in five flavors and levels of “heat.” Level 2, Honey Mustard Horsepower, earned a Top Gear award; Level 1, No Bull Barbecue and Level 3, Nacho Chilicanga won Great Gear awards; and Seals of Excellence were awarded to Level 4, Caribbean Zing and Level 5, Buffalo Bleu.

The huge selection of natural and organic products out in the marketplace gave ShapeYou.com the idea to create and run the GearAwards™. “We want people to easily find the best of the best that’s out there,” a company spokesperson said. “And if it has a GearAward™ seal on it, that just makes it simpler to find a great product – because we’ve done the footwork already.”

The Buffalo Nickel Food Company, based in Boonton, New Jersey, was founded in 2008 on the principle that snacks should stampede the taste buds and excite the eye without ravaging the body.
