You Missed a Big Reason for this increase
McDonald's is testing McWings in Atlanta and Chicago markets. There is a shortage due to some of the reasons stated in this brief article. But when a giant like McDonald's adds or contemplates adding a new item, they pre purchase and store enough so if they roll it out nationally, they have enough. McDonald's has 14,000 US locations.
Get used to paying $10-13 per 10 wings. At that cost, if you are getting large, quality wings, they cost the pizzeria/rest about 42%. That still breaks the industry food cost rule of thumb of 28-33% food cost.
