Food News: Wendy’s Boneless Wings
Burgers, fries and chicken nuggets are staples of the fast food world. Wendy’s has decided to dress up the run of the mill chicken nuggets with their New! Boneless Wings. It’s always nice to have some variety, and the new “wings” come in three varieties: Bold Buffalo, Honey BBQ and Sweet and Spicy Asian. Each of the varieties are lightly breaded pieces of 100% breast meat. You can expect to get 7 to 9 pieces depending on the size of the morsels.
The wings, made with 100-percent breast meat, will be lightly breaded and hand-tossed in one of three sauces, Wendy’s said in a statement. The 6,623-unit chain will begin promoting the Sweet & Spicy Asian choice in national advertising scheduled to launch June 22. The other flavor options will be promoted later in the year, said Wendy’s spokesman Bob Bertini.
The boneless wings cost $3.99 on their own or $5.69 when purchased as a combo. The price seems a little steep when you can get 10 nuggets for $2 and change. So basically they are charging another $2 for the sauce and possibly some fancy new packaging. Maybe the new items are noticably bigger. I’m a big fan of Wendy’s in general and am looking forward to giving these a try.
