    Is “Honey and Tangy Barbecue Sauce” one item, or is McDonald’s finally bringing back the honey dipping sauce? I used to love that as a kid.

    • Cj says:

      Honey tangy refers to their regular BBQ sauce. I too remember the plain honey sauce they used to have for mcnuggets.

      Good times!

      • TJ says:

        Really? I remember their regular barbecue sauce only saying “tangy barbecue sauce” and their website still showed “honey” as a sauce, last I checked.. but the last time I asked for honey at the drive-thru they said they only had honey mustard, so maybe you’re right.

    • JF says:

      It’s “Honey” and “Tangy Barbecue Sauce”. Two different sauces.

    • Jen says:

      Honey dipping sauce is gone? Maybe it’s a regional thing, but I could swear I’ve gotten it in the last year.

    2.99 for three!?!?! That is a pricey snack..

  3. kylemeat says:

    Prices starting at 2.99? A dollar a wing seems a little ridiculous.

    • JF says:

      Was going to say the same thing. I seem to recall reading somewhere (may have been here) that during testing, people commented they were bigger than most places wing, but the pricing is too high. Unless these include fries and the pricing reflects that, I really can’t see these selling well. I am sure you can get better wings pretty much anywhere for much cheaper.

    Also, in the link, some white guy said this “Earlier this year, J.M. Owen, president of the Greater Atlanta McDonald’s Operators Association, called the Mighty wings test “extremely successful,” especially with African-American consumers.” I for one am outraged. Everyone knows you can’t mention black people and chicken in the same sentence unless you wan’t to be labeled a racist. Burn him at the stake!

    • Cj says:

      Yup this has FAIL written all over it.

      People can go to Popeyes and get better chicken in a complete meal including fries and biscuit for only $3.99.

      Who’s going to pay $2.99 for puny wings?

      • thehottoddy23 says:

        I agree that the price is unbelievably high for what this is, but remember chicken wings are NOT cheap whatsoever. The growth in popularity has caused the price to skyrocket in recent years so I’m actually not overly surprised by this, but once again definitely on the ridiculous sides all things considered. Also, McDonald’s footprint is strong to say the least, and the widespread availability of the restaurant definitely helps them get away with this price since not everyone can get to a Popeye’s, KFC, or whatever.

    This is the worst idea in the history of mankind.

  6. Nathan says:

    You’re better off just getting nuggets. At a dollar a wing, they better be closer to drumstick size but it’s doubtful they will be.

  7. Manavee says:

    I tried these in the Chicagoland area in January of this year.

    I will say these were better than I expected. The drumsticks are huge….like they sprinkled some Miracle Grow on a regular drumstick and watched it double in size. The size issue was a problem when it came to dipping the chicken in the sauces as the sauce packets weren’t wide enough to handle the drumsticks/wings.

    The breading was plentiful but also a bit bland. I didn’t think it tasted bad per se, but they’re not going to be competing with Popeye’s anytime soon in the flavor department.

  8. DerangedHermit says:

    Because this worked so well the last time McDonald’s rolled wings out nationally.

  9. Ric says:

    I can’t believe that the $2.99 price for 3 wings is correct. I can see $1.49 for 3 and that being listed on the value menu. $2.99 for 6 and $4.99 for 10. Basically making them $.50 per wing which is right at the price point I would expect for a chicken wing from McDonald’s.

  10. Jonathan Wayne says:

    So I can get wings for about 50 cents a piece at other places, good wings, but I should pay them $1 a piece? Yeah right McDonald’s.

  11. Bubbsy says:

    Chicken may be better at chicken places (like Popeye’s or Church’s)…. but many times going for fast food there isn’t one nearby. So for wings sometimes the only option is to get them from a pizza chain.

    These would be 100x better than the wings from any pizza chain, because all pizza joints do the wings in the oven. Blech. Rubbery, soggy. So at least the McDos wings are fried and crispy.

    EpicFailTime?

  13. Steven T says:

    Those prices are madness. That’s AK/HI price territory. When I read it I thought oh okay, prices seem normal forgetting I had to adjust it upwards another 50-75% from these prices.

  14. michael says:

    according to comments i’ve read from test markets like atlanta the wings are really good and may be high if wanting to make that your meal. but for just a quick nosh of delicious juicy chicken, (again from the test markets) you can’t beat it.
