Ohhhhhhkay BK, NOW you are on to something here.
I love chicken. I love fries. I like chicken-fries.
I did NOT like the Buffalo Chicken fries…they didn’t live up to the hype.
I did NOT like the Cheetos Chicken Fries….again…hype.
Now these here????? These here Jalapeno Chicken Fries??? These here???? These have something to say. The breadding on these have bits of jalapeno in them, so you get a scattered bit of heat during the experience. I have had these twice now and both times I had to wait…which is fine because I wanted them fresh. Fresh they were. Nice and crispy. Flavor and style. This is a Chicken Fry I can support on a regular basis.
So…of course it will be a limited time thing. sigh…..
Everyone loves “Buffalo” something. Wings, chips, eyelashes. Everything is getting “buffalo’ed” these days. Take the BK chicken fries. They were pretty fun and snacky all by themselves. Of course they could have used a bit more heat but that was what the sauces were for. They were fine as is. I have had them several times and enjoyed them more often than not.
Then here comes the “buffalo” ones. A light dusting of cayenne and some orange color don’t really reinvent these into something magical. They are decent but the heat was so shallow it just made me feel tricked. If you gonna intro a spicy something make it DAMN SPICY!!!
Yep-yep, they is back, ya’ll !!!! Dem chick’n-fries ya’ll was demandin’!!!! WOO!!!
To be honest – I remember when these came out years ago and thought they sounded gross and they certainly tasted gross. Floppy and thin. Rubbery and just tired.
Now I don’t know if my tastes have changed or the recipe for this because I actually liked these!
Yeah – I was surprised too. The breading seems different that what they use on their other fried products. It has a texture to it that flakes off like crumbs or dusting…like a finer-coarse coating/batter is used here. Anyway it works. Granted they were made fresh and I had to wait….Lord knows how they might taste after sitting for a while.
I can see kids LOVING these. A basket of these mixed in with regular fries? They will probably tear it up. It’s a fun food for certain. I am totally bamboozled as to why I like it…but I do…maybe it’s because the GREAT STATE FAIR OF TEXAS is coming up…and this is totally a Fair-food thingie…and I am just hyped?
Whatever…just don’t get between me and these here chicken fries. You will lose.
