So I headed up there and got myself a five-piece order for $4.99. I was extremely underwhelmed when I opened the package. Each strip was about the length of a finger. A little thicker (though not thicker than my finger the time it got bitten by a Brown Recluse spider, but that's a story that could make even the most gore-loving Walking Dead fan a little squeamish) but not impressive by any means. "Does this look like it's worth five bucks?" I asked aloud.
I love the fact that Burger King has come out with an Asian-inspired sauce. I don't understand why more fast food places don't try this. (If you've been a reader of mine for a while, you've seen me try multiple times to get McDonald's to bring back Shanghai McNuggets.) So I give them credit for that, just not the execution.
As for the chicken strips themselves? Well, they are much better than Burger King's chicken "tenders" that they reformulated last year and are basically just nuggets. (Other than the Carl's Jr. turkey burger, those were the worst fast food item I have tried in years.) But these new strips were too much breading and not enough chicken, so paying one dollar a piece for these just felt like a complete ripoff. I won't be getting them ever again.
