My campus Chick-fil-A is truly half-ass, actually they’re worse. I’m going to go as far as quarter-ass. They’re a little station in one of the main food courts with around a fourth of the menu of a legitimate CFA outpost. Any time I start to get excited about some new menu item, I’m reminded that my CFA won’t have it. Hell, I can’t even get a milkshake. As much as I hate to support shitty-efforts, they do have one item that keeps me coming back. The best nuggets in the game, yo.
Nearly all Chick-fil-A’s allow for unlimited sauces, I bet you can guess which outpost is the exception. Luckily, these nuggets need sauce about as badly as Kobe needs Shaq. They’re already superstars, the meat itself comes from an actual chicken breast rather than some mechanically separated soft-serve. Breaded lightly with a good amount of seasoning before being pressure cooked in (non-hydrogenated) peanut oil.
Tender, meaty, crispy, and it get’s better. As far as I know Chick-Fil-A is the only chain offering the new Heinz Dip & Squeeze ketchup. Forget Shaq and Kobe, this is like D Wade and Lebron, Jordan and Pippen, HALL & OATES! Okay, not sure about that one…All I’m saying is that Heinz Ketchup (the only ketchup) will always compliment a fast-food nugget, always.
For the nutrition crew, 8 nuggets provide 270 cals 12g Fat, 11g Carbs, and 28g Protein. Those are some pretty favorable macronutrients when compared to the contenders, and the ingredients are a step above as well.
I paid 3.09 for an 8 count – steep in comparison, but I’m cool with it. Quality always costs money, that goes for basketball contracts, platinum records, and most definitely chicken nuggets.
Don’t trust me? The fellas at Grub Grade seem to agree.
