The Laidback Gourmet: Burger King’s Brand New Chicken Tenders

Welcome to the Laidback Gourmet where you can always have it your way, as long as your way is my way. As I was sitting around in Edmerica I received a royal invitation. No, it wasn’t a wedding invitation, unfortunately I’m not invited to that one, it’d just be awkward considering that Catherine’s my ex and all. Nope, I was invited into the court of the Burger King.

In case you haven’t noticed, Burger King has been hyping the heck of their brand new chicken tenders. They even sent me a coupon for a free 4 pack. Who am I to turn down a royal decree like that? So out of good will I hopped into Ed Force One and dropped right by. This is what I was greeted with:

Not much on presentation, but hey, what do you expect for free? Or a dollar twenty five if you pay for it straight up. I do have to say they do smell pretty good, they smell like they have some spice to them. Let’s take a look at one of these nuggets, oh I mean ‘tenders’. Nuggets are a different company.

Pretty standard looking chicken nugget. Wanna disect it? Yea, me too!

Again, still looks pretty standard. Doesn’t look like a solid piece of premium white meat chicken, but it doesn’t look like odds and ends either. Looks like its pretty much white meat. No sense waiting lets tear into it… well, I guess we already DID tear into it. Let’s just eat it.

Om Nom Nom

Hmm… it’s… ok. Actually it’s kind of a let down. It’s the same chicken nugget/tender/finger/crown that they’ve been serving for years. Same spice, same texture, same flavor. It’s not bad or anything but it’s nothing amazing either. While the taste is ok, I find it to be a bit doughy. Well, let’s try it with honey mustard. Honey Mustard covers all sins.

Meh, even BK’s honey mustard tastes a bit sub par. Can’t rate this one any higher than 6 out of 10. I can’t even recommend going out and trying them because I’m sure you’ve already tried these before, they’re just a different shape. Bottom Line, they look like McD’s chicken nuggets but they just aren’t as good. If you want nuggets, go see the clown. (I bet that’s the last royal invitation I get from the King ever again!)

Well that concludes this Laidback Gourmet, thank you as always for reading.
