Review: Burger King - Fiery Chicken Fries

Burger King's Fiery Chicken Fries are a spicy version of their breaded, fry-shaped, formed chicken strips.

An order includes nine Chicken Fries and ran me $3.19.

The taste of these is similar to original Chicken Fries but with cayenne and black pepper for some heat. There's the typical garlic and onion notes as well as a bit of smokiness from paprika.

The spiciness gave these a little more depth and they also seemed less salty than the original. It's a deceptive heat too; initially, I didn't think it was spicy at all. But it hit me as I finished the first one and built with each successive fry eaten. It never got too uncomfortable though.

The breading offered just a little in the way of crispness and reminded me of school or oven-baked chicken nuggets. The chicken inside was moist and finely ground.

I went with the Chicken Fry sauce that was introduced this year since I've never tried it. It's similar to Chick-fil-A but felt more mustard-y (Chick-fil-A sauce is basically a mix between mustard and barbecue sauce with some mayo thrown in as well) and less balanced. It's just okay with the Fiery Chicken Fries. Ranch probably would have worked better but I wanted to try the new sauce (I ate most of the Chicken Fries without sauce though as they have plenty of seasoning already).

Overall, Burger King's Fiery Chicken Fries were quite enjoyable with a decent spicy kick to them. I much prefer them to the original Chicken Fries, which I'm not too crazy about.
