Ohio grocery chain stocking up on duck

Monday January 12th, 2015

College football fans are preparing for the sport's biggest event as Ohio State takes on Oregon to see who will be crowned this season's National Champion, and Buckeyes fans are looking to enjoy some roast duck while watching the game.

Ohio-based grocery store Kroger told The Associated Press that it has increased the amount of duck available at its stores in anticipation of Ohioans looking to have the Oregon mascot on the menu for viewing parties.

The store will also have staff on hand to help fans with recipes for the waterfowl.

Unfortunately for Oregon fans looking to return the favor, Buckeye nuts are poisonous, although these delicious candy variants are not.
