I was driving by the local Wendy’s when I saw a sign for 99 cent 5-pc Spicy Chicken Nuggets. I’m used to paying much more for my favorite fast food nuggets, so anything under a dollar read like free. That and the fact that my campus Chick-fil-A had closed for the summer were enough reason for me to return a few hours later when I started fienin’ for some nuggets.
I stopped in after a training ride in full cycling gear. The friendly cashier treated me like any other customer, rather than some skinny douche with a funny outfit. I would have thanked my local Wendy’s for that, but they missed their shot for any gratitude by doing something much more offensive than giving me a funny look or snide remark. They served me shitty nuggets.
To begin, these don’t even look good. Why are my nuggets in a fry cup, and what are those little white specks? The outer breading wasn’t crisp, the inner nugget was dry and mealy, and the overall flavor was like off brand seasoned salt mixed with Junior High lunches. In their defense, there was some heat, but I’d be reluctant to call them spicy.
Maybe I just got an exceptionally bad batch, both Grub Grade, and The Impulsive Buy seemed to like them.
