Drumstick is a chicken leg, generally roasted or fried. It is extremely popular due to its portrayal in countless medieval reenactments when a king or queen holds up a leg of meat with the bone showing on one end. One might conclude that the monarch in question was trying to illustrate their royalty, but the reality is that in these medieval times, silverware was unpopular. Many individuals, both rich and poor, preferred to feast with their hands.
Drumsticks taste good. Some might find the bone trapped within cumbersome and decide to opt for a chicken strip instead.
Drumstick became an official snack on April 21st 2012.
