I’m not sure I could put my finger on why people gravitate to Wingstop, but the one thing that’s clear is that it’s a cheap, low-fat, protein-rich, vegan food.
That’s because Wingstop has a cult following that stretches from the coasts to the Pacific Northwest.
It’s a new food trend in New York, and it’s been doing so well that Wingstop’s founder, Andrew Zimmern, recently launched a brand of wing-shaped cookies, called the Wingstops.
The cookie itself, made with a vegan batter and nut-free butter, is the only ingredient that is actually vegan, though Zimmern has said the company will eventually add eggs.
You’ll find it at Wingstop stores around the city, and in some grocery stores, and at farmers markets.
“I’ve been working in this space for a long time, and I’m really excited about what we’re doing,” said Zachary Shugerman, who runs a vegan-friendly food truck called the Flying Pig.
Shugerman’s shop has been serving Wingstop-inspired food for years.
I’m trying to figure out why people are so drawn to it.
As far as I can tell, it’s mostly because it’s so cheap.
Wingstop is $1.49 per cookie.
Even cheaper, say, at Whole Foods, is to use one of Wingstop products.
That includes a $2.99 “Wingstop Cookie” and $3.49 “Wingstops Egg & Cheese.”
But the WingStops Egg and Cheese, which is a creamy, sweet, creamy vegan cheese, comes with a warning: “It’s best eaten on its own, not with Wingstop.”
There’s also a $1 cookie, which has a note that says: “Please remember Wingstop is an all-natural, vegan product and may contain traces of dairy.”
“There’s nothing wrong with using this product, but I do want to point out that this product is for people who are lactose intolerant,” said Shugerman.
“If you’re lactose sensitive, you might be allergic to the ingredients in Wingstots.”
Wingstots have also been used as an alternative to butter and cream in baked goods, as well as in some yogurts and smoothies.
There are also Wingstuts available in a variety of other products.
For example, the Wingstick is a low-calorie but high-protein protein bar.
And there are Wingstucks available in ice cream, as a snack, and for vegans in restaurants.
Wingstop cookies are made with ground-up Wingstikes.
But most importantly, the company says Wingstop cookies contain no fat.
That’s a big deal to vegan-vegan fans because fat has been linked to heart disease and diabetes, and many vegans are wary of using fat-containing products.
“It’s not a fat-free product, so it’s not going to be a great source of fat-rich foods,” Shugerm said.
This year, Wingstop launched a new line of Wingsticks, a “protein-rich” line of cookies that comes with soy milk.
According to a Wingstop spokesman, the protein in the Wingsticks is “not animal or egg-derived, but is a combination of natural and cultured proteins.”
It includes protein from ground-caught fish and chicken, and organic cane sugar, all of which are vegan.
In an email, Zimmern said the WingStop brand is still a vegan product.
Although the WingSTops egg and cheese are gluten-free, they also contain soy milk, which Zimmern says is not vegan.
So, like the Wingtops, the Egg and cheese can be eaten on their own, but only if you’re gluten-sensitive.
We’re also using vegan ingredients in the Egg & cheese.
But we’re still going to say it’s vegan.
Because we want people to feel good about themselves.
At this point, it may not be clear why people like Wingstop so much, but it’s clear that Wingstokes are popular.
