My tastes are ever-evolving when it comes to wing flavors. Wingstop has debuted a new flavor that I like called SMOKE 9. It’s exactly what you might think…a smoky…bbq-y…slightly pepper-y…dry rub type flavor.
Not a total dry rub though, as you can see. It’s good but it’s missing a note…like maybe a sweetness?
And then it hits me. These sort of taste like a more smoky version of the Nashville Hot Chicken from KFC.
Now whether that is intended or by accident, if you know about both, it’s undeniable. KFC has them just by a hair on the flavor…but of course Wingstop has them on the quality of the chicken and it’s flavor. Comparison aside it’s still very good…..but I am still waiting for Wingstop to bring back their best flavor ever….the Serrano Pepper Glaze…oh how I miss that sauce!!!
