Review: Dip’n Chick’n from Popeyes
The scoop-shaped chicken known as Dip’n Chick’n is the latest from Popeyes. Served with a nice sized portion of smoky blackened ranch dipping sauce. Delicious smoky, peppery blend. I held back on doing a full on review because this is the same Popeyes chicken that we’ve written about here and here and here… (plus these are phone pics, sorry). So anyways, I’ll keep this brief, but let me just say, at $3.99, this is one of the best fast food deals out there. Especially when you consider a premium sized fast food burger runs at about 4 bucks on its own. For $3.99 you get the Dip’n Chick’n with double portion blackened ranch dipping sauce, a side and a biscuit.
I loved Dip’n Chick’n. Also from reading some of the comments on the news post, I decided to go with Mashed Potatoes with Cajun Gravy as my side instead of the Cajun Fries. It’s under there somewhere. Don’t hesitate to use the Dip’n Chick’n as a scoop for the Mashed Potatoes and gravy … wow that makes me sound super fat. There were 10 pieces of chicken of various nugget/strip/tender sizes in my box of grub. Plenty of food for $3.99.
Upgrading a drink to the order will make your combo go from $3.99 to a little shy of $6. I avoided the Sweeeeeet Iced Tea and just stuck with the $3.99 deal. So the only thing new about Dip’n Chick’n is the shape, name and sauce. No complaints here, work with what you’ve got Popeyes. I’m a fan. Now if only my local Popeyes didn’t take an eternity to get my order together…
Pros: Great tasty value. Double sized portion blackened ranch dipping sauce.
Cons: The unlucky ones that might only get 5 or 6 pieces compared to my 10.
