Are Taco Bell's New Chicken Wings Worth Fighting For?


Since it’s such a limited product and many of you might not be able to get your hands on some, I’m sure you’re wondering if you’ll be missing out. The answer is no. These wings are not groundbreaking in any way, aside from the novel fact that they’re from Taco Bell. I’d say their closest analog is convenience store chicken wings, like the ones they sell at 7-Eleven, under the heat lamps. Those have the same kind of crunch, and they’re more about texture than the quantity and/or quality of meat. But they have their time and place.

You still have most of this week to try the Taco Bell Crispy Chicken Wings, so you can head over to the drive-thru or use the app after 2 p.m. to snag some for yourself. Just remember that each location only has a limited amount per day, so you’ll want to get there as close to 2 p.m. as possible. They’re perfectly fine for what they are, but don’t go expecting anything revolutionary.

One interesting thing I noticed was that the wings came in a plain cardboard takeout box with no branding on it. The wings themselves are on the small side, and for $6, the price was steeper than most items on Taco Bell’s menu, I chalk the pricing up to novelty and the fact that chicken wings supplies have been fluctuating, but this is all to say, don’t order these expecting giant portions.
