News: 7-Eleven - New Chicken Dippers

7-Eleven now offers new Chicken Dippers as a snacking option from their hot foods display. The new item features lightly-breaded white meat chicken chunks with a choice of either Ancho Chipotle, Ranch, or Honey Mustard dipping sauce.

An order of six Dippers and sauce goes for $1.99 at participating 7-Eleven stores.

Essentially chicken nuggets, the new Chicken Dippers join chicken breast tenders and wings as 7-Elevens "hot-to-go" chicken options. The items are heated in Turbo Chef ovens, which are available in over 5,200 of 7-Eleven's 7,800 US stores.

The convenient store chain's recent snacking push is spurred by research showing that younger consumers (teen-to-30 year olds) are more likely than other age groups to shop at convenience stores and more prone to snacking.
