Burger King's new Chicken Nuggets look an awful lot like McDonald's Chicken McNuggets. Like the previous version, they're made of white meat chicken dipped in a "crispy tempura-style batter" and are meant to be crispier that before.
I picked up a 10-piece order for $2.99. There was also a 20-piece on the menu at $4.99.
Make no bones about it, Burger King was looking to copy McDonald's with their new Chicken Nuggets. They look the same and they feel the same. The shape are more uniform than McDonald's circle, boot, and oval so I guess that's kinda different.
They are better than the old ones, which tasted a bit too much like Tyson's frozen chicken nuggets.
Among, fast food mechanically-separated chicken nuggets, Burger King's new Chicken Nuggets rates a solid #2 as a close but imperfect imitation of McDonald's #1.
