Review: Sonic - Boneless Wings

Sonic's new Boneless Wings feature crispy-fried, bite-sized white meat chicken pieces that come tossed in one of three sauces: Buffalo, Asian Sweet Chili, or Barbecue.

I got three orders (one of each flavor) of six Boneless Wings per order. They were $3.99 per order, but I received them courtesy of Sonic.

Rather than a carton, these came in the same trays as Sonic's hot dogs.

The Boneless Wings seem a bit larger than Sonic's Popcorn Chicken (about two bites to the Popcorn Chicken's one), but sported the same thick, craggy shell of batter. It might be a little too thick as sometimes it felt like I was eating an even amount of fried batter to chicken. They seemed to have been sitting in the warmer for a bit but were still remarkably crunchy, even covered in sauce. Inside, the chicken was moist-to-dry.

The Asian Sweet Chili sauce was the spiciest of the trio. Along with the medium heat, there's a sweet and sour mix of soy sauce and ginger. It was a little too strong and was more something I'd rather dip myself.

The Buffalo sauce was surprisingly understated and that's a good thing. Rather than overpowering the chicken, it accented it with a judicious amount of the requisite vinegar tang and low-burning heat.

The Barbecue sauce felt the most standard and moderate of the three. It provided a balance of sweet and tangy notes, offset by a light smokiness. Like the Asian Sweet Chili, it was a bit on the strong side.

Overall, Sonic's new Boneless Wings were good and fairly enjoyable. Of the sauces, I liked the Buffalo best, followed by Asian Sweet Chili, and the Barbecue. In general, I prefer plain wings over sauced ones though.
