Happy midweek! Most of you are probably busy getting down to business with whatever occupation you have taken on. As a musician/part-time job holder, my schedule tends to be different every day, every week. I tend to work until late at night leaving my dinners to be after 9pm or 2100 h. Around that time, most joints that are open are just fast food and bars.
On a tight budget, I find myself stopping at places you might have heard of such as Thee McDonalds. Has anyone heard of these restaurants? Well, they have conveniently made it easy for dopes like me to drive my killer yet cute touring minivan (named E.Honda) to the side of their building to purchase noms (foods) under $5. Have you ever done this?? It is AMAZING!
Anyway!!! A little history of me and McD’s:
When I was younger, the ONLY thing I ate was the chicken nuggets and the fries, NEVER THE BURGERS. Not only that, but I only wanted the round nuggets, NOT the boot shaped ones. I would load those badboys with salt and cut the sodium with that orange drink. Badababapaaa I WAS LOVING IT!!
Fast forward to now, I am willing to try pretty much anything on the menu as long as there is NO MAYO and NO SOUR CREAM! Thank you very much.
When the new Mighty Wings came out, I HAD to try them! Wings for me is like the stupid saying guys have for pizza and sex: ‘Pizza is like sex, it is never really bad’ Whatever, that was dumb.
Let’s get to the point here. THE WINGS, are they MIGHTY?
When I opened the box, there were 3 fairly good sized still warm wings. They were hard, as sometimes fried things get soft after being enclosed for a while. There were dark specks of pepper on the outside which led me to believe there was at least some seasoning.
I took a bite and I was surprised with the spiciness. They were not spicy in terms of heat, but they definitely had bite with the pepper and salt. For me this was great, especially with the low expectations one might have with fast food. I have to say these were pretty good. Crunchy flavored batter, enough meat to satisfy and freshly cooked. Way to go MacDonalds. My 8 year old nugget-loving self would in heaven if these came out then.
Many people think that the Mighty Wings is a pretty useless idea since you can get cheap decent wings at actual chicken/wing joints. I can see families and cheapass moops like me only wanting to make one stop at places to get that variety; maybe you want a cheese burger, but your friend or sister wants chicken wings. Don’t waste gas, just go to McDonalds.
I definitely have had better wings, but I would thought the Mighty Wings were decent and not a bad idea for an experiment from the McDonalders.
All in all:
Would I buy it again? If it were the only thing around and I was craving fried chicken.
Would I finish it? Oh yeah, and then some. 10+ is sad but an average.
Overall rate (1-10): 6
Thanks for reading. More to come!
