    I wonder if it will be any different from their chicken selects? Didn’t they discontinue those before because they were too expensive and they were losing money? What will make these any different? Looks like history might repeat itself!

    I just got this today, comes in a weird box. The tenders are huge, I regret getting the 10-piece meal, lol.

    These look pretty appetizing and I am not a fan of McDonald’s food. They even have that awesome tangy sauce that places like Raising Cain’s has. I’m not sure what the ingredients are in it, but it makes for some of my favorite dipping sauce ever. Famous Dave’s BBQ has these catfish fingers that come with Dave’s own variation of that sauce and it’s delicious and so are those fingers.

    I am hoping these are made freshly when people order it. I actually saw this in the drive thru when I went to get my kid her Filet-o-Fish sandwich. I ordered the Chicken Selects one time and it was old, overcooked, dry and nasty, considering that I like all of Mickey D’s items. I also got it another time by accident, it was someone else’s order. Still dry and bad. They are edible with sauce…but KFC and Chick-fil-A beats them anyway. I am hoping these are good and not like their Buttermilk Chicken sandwich. How hard is it for them to come out a great chicken product? I would advise them to copycat KFC or Chick’s tenders…..but they can’t cause theirs are fresh chicken.

    These aren’t that bad. Nowhere the great falvor of KFC ir ChickFila, but much better than their previous Chicken Selects. Mine were hot, juicy, and had a crunch to them that beats KFC, ChickFila, or Popeyes, in my opinion.

    Just tried these. Maybe I had a bad batch but they were absolutely revolting and I’m not a fussy eater. They were rubbery, hard to chew, super greasy, and full of snaggly bits. I actuferl sick from eating them. So terrible

  7. Nick says:

    My McDonalds had a coupon: buy these and get a free fry and drink. They tasted identical to Chicken Selects and not very fresh. The new signature sauce was decent and I might pair it with some McNuggets next time. At $6.00 for a six piece before fries and drink these are not much of a value either.

  8. Johnnboy says:

    I had these and they are really meaty and I would say a 7 out of 10 in taste, the sauce on the other hand is okay if you like mayo and ketchup mixed sauce. The sauce should be better, not that great, I ate the rest of mine with Hot Mustard sauce and some just plain.

    Just got these today and I have to say I am not a fan. They may be called “chicken tenders” but the texture was really strange and did not seem to be what is traditionally considered “chicken tenders”. They were rubbery, tough and seemed to be made up of bits of chicken pressed together to form a facsimile of a tender. The taste is not bad but I found them hard to eat

      I’ve only had these once so far but I agree with your assessment. The taste and quantity was fine but the texture was weird. Chicken is usually stringy (like a muscle tends to be) but these tenders were kind of flaky (kind of like the texture of fish). However, I’ll probably try them again if they offer some kind of special (free fries and soda?) because the taste was good.

    Buttermilk Schmuttermilk. I just know these are going to taste like another “McDonald’s product”, if you know what I mean.

    You KNOW what I mean.

  11. Ostncdy says:

    Delphia Vega you’re not alone. I habe gotten these three times and the texture whether they are fresh or not, yippy still get that rubbery texture… don’t recommend. And they absolutely need to go back too selects. Much better than these buttermilk tenders.

  12. Sandy says:

    Hot mustard dipping sauce is back…woo hoo!

  13. Dennis says:

    The stupid box they serve them in is very awkward.

    I have tried these new Buttermilk Crispy Chicken Tenders on 3 different occasions and 3 different McDonald’s stores as I’m a traveling sales person. My verdict is finally in: all 3 experiences have been pretty bad, always rubbery and chewy. Not good at all even with my favorite sweet & sour sauce added. This was my last attempt. Not recommended.

    These NEW Buttermilk Chicken Nuggets were absolutely HORRIBLE! Fried too long and dried out, long with Veins of Fat running thru them! It was like eating burned Chicken Jerky! Really Bad! Scrap them McDonald’s! Yeesh! Took the OVERCOOKED batter off and fed the Chicken to my dogs. They are AWFUL!

    Feeding your dog those tenders is a bad idea. McD’s buttermilk tenders (as stated above)are about 20% fat, which is unhealthy even for dogs who do not need to worry about bad cholesterol as much as we do. Such fat rich food is especially dangerous for overweight dogs or dogs who have heart problems.
    Another reason you shouldn’t share chicken tenders with your canine friend is that those tenders contain an excessive amount of salt. Dogs’ bodies do not tolerate high amounts of salt. Salty food can cause excessive thirst and urination in dogs, and more serious problems like kidney failure.

    I thought I’d give McDonald’s ?real? chicken “tenders”a try … they were discussing… I’m wondering if they didn’t extrude this in a new way so that it mimics chicken muscle protein. It tastes so fake/rubbery! I feel like I have been duped … like when I found out the McNuggets were liquified shape stamped chicken extras. Yuck! Why do people eat at this place? Don’t get me wrong … I enjoy their coffee and Diet Coke which is all that I would put in my body from this fast food dispensary. Selling things that are real food questionable should be illegal IMHO!
