Just in time for Super Bowl XLIV, it’s official: Gardein Classic Style Buffalo Wings are the best faux chicken wings in the land. But don’t take our word for it. Just ask Miami Dolphins star running back and longtime vegetarian Ricky Williams, who hosted a taste test yesterday at his Miami Beach eatery, Proof Restaurant and Lounge, and declared Gardein the winner out of a whole flock of delicious meatless chicken. Williams and PETA want football fans across the country to take a page from Williams’ playbook and give nutritious faux wings a try at their Super Bowl parties this year. As Williams knows, there’s no better way to tackle cruelty to animals than simply to stop eating them.
A video of the contest—featuring an exclusive interview with Williams—can be seen here: http://blog.peta.org/archives/2010/02/ricky_williams.php?c=pfrwws10. The interview was conducted by PETA director and sports buff Dan Shannon, and the food was expertly prepared by renowned vegan chef Lex Townes.
