Two men are being accused of stealing $65,000 worth of frozen chicken wings amid a high nationwide shortage of the appetizer.

Dewayne Patterson, 35 and Renaldo Jackson, 26, allegedly used forklift and a rental truck to steal several warehouse pallets of frozen wings from a storage facility in Lawrenceville, Georgia, according to WSB-TV.

The two men were charged with one count of felony theft and released on bond.

Chicken wings are in extremely high demand and are expected to reach record prices during the Super Bowl this year.
