Throughout the last year, we have seen shortages in various goods and services due to supply chain issues caused by COVID-19.
The most recent one could be chicken tenders.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture also recently reported that the price per pound for chicken breast has gone up to $3.98. This is one dollar higher than this time in 2020.
The reason for prices rising is that supply is not meeting demand.
People have taken to Twitter to share their experiences surrounding purchasing chicken tenders with their groceries.
Bro I went to the grocery store yesterday and took the last bag of chicken tenders LOL I’m about to sell them for a quick $100

This is kinda wild bc I noticed my grocery store hasn’t carried Tyson’s chicken tenders for the last 2-3 weeks and I was starting to pick up on the vibe that something was off https://t.co/Apsgt0PkRj

Big companies are reacting to the news as well, as McDonald’s removes tenders from their menu temporarily.
KFC stopped advertising for tenders to slow demand for the menu item.
