For the football season, McDonald’s released a limited time menu item: Mighty Wings. The wings are deep fried and spicy, just the way I like my wings. Even though I had my doubts, I couldn’t resist heading over to my nearest McDonald’s to try them out.
A 10-piece was priced at $8.99, so a little less than one dollar per wing. Mr. K thought the price was a little high, especially compared to KFC’s hot wings.
The wings were quite plump and didn’t look dry or dehydrated which can happen at some other fast food places if the wings have been sitting around too long.
They were quite crunchy, due to the breading. While KFC’s hot wings have a more uniform and smooth crunchy batter, here the crunchy part comes from the individual bread crumbs.
Biting in, the chicken is quite juicy and definitely has a spicy kick. The wings come with dipping sauces of your choice, but I didn’t even need the sauces.
Overall, I was pleasantly surprised. While my favorite wings are Kyochon’s double fried wings, I thought McDonald’s wings stacks up well to its competitors like KFC and Popeye’s. I would like to see them reduce the price a little.
