Not free, but still a good deal: 49 cent chickens at Kroger

When Herbert Hoover ran for president in 1928 he pledged to maintain prosperity by promising “a chicken in every pot”. Perhaps it is a tie-in to this campaign pledge that prompted Kroger to reduce the price of fresh fryer chickens to just $.49 per pound during tax week, 2014. This is half-price at a time when meat prices have been skyrocketing.

As previously stated this special runs through Easter Sunday. No coupon is necessary but you must enter your Kroger shopper’s ID to see the price drop from $.99-$.49 per pound.

Hopefully these chickens were able to lay their Easter eggs before the special started.
