I’ll take 5 of these. Wow. Yummy looking.

It’s a new CFA sandwich. The Honey Pepper Pimento Chicken Sandwich.

I live in upstate SC too but I just checked the app for a few in the area and didn’t see it as an option.

How disappointing. I hope it’s a hit.

Spicy Mustard is definitely the best option. New mighty hot sauce is a wildcard though, awaiting McMuffin's field report.

Okay FF Brethren, I went to McRick's today. They even had (just for today) an app deal of buy 6 piece spicy nuggets get 6 piece spicy nuggets free so that's what I did. I inquired if I could get 4 piece spicy nuggets for a dollar and was told that they don't come in 4 piece.

I got 2 Buffalo Sauces with them and I also asked for Mighty Hot Sauce when I received my food, receiving 2 of them.

First the Ingredients for the Mighty Hot Sauce:

Quote:
Water, Vinegar, Sugar, Chili Peppers, Cayenne Red Peppers, Salt, Apricot Concentrate, Garlic, Corn Starch, Contains 2% or Less: Spices, Xanthan Gum, Natural Flavors, Soybeal Oil, Oleoresin Capsicum, Garlic Powder, Preservatives (Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate), Yeast Extract.
The Nuggets themselves were decently spicy. They were good spicy, not some weird type of spicy. I took a half bite of a few of them to test out the spicy of the nuggets without any sauce. I'll give them a 7.5/10. I'd say they are definitely better than their regular nuggets, but not by a landslide.

The Mighty Hot Sauce is worth getting as well and has a decent spice to it. It definitely cleared up my sinus congestion lol. I also found it tasty but not very tasty. I'll give it a 7.25/10 as a sauce.

All in all, it's worth heading to McRick's to try out both the Spicy Nuggets and the Mighty Hot Sauce!

Also McRick's PSA: I got a Triple Cheeseburger Meal and upgraded to a Large Chocolate Shake for $2.30 more. Large Chocolate Shake is $4.19 for me, so if you wanted a large drink as well you could spend $1 a la carte for the drink and come out $0.89+tax ahead or just switch to the Large Chocolate Shake alone if you don't want the drink!

Re: New fast food discussion/review thread

Jimmy Johns hit my app with a 3.99 original (~40% off), had a #5 Vito for lunch. +pickles, onion, peppers. Standard Jimmy Johns, nothing crazy haven't had it in a while, enjoyed.

Intended a 1$ Wed Whopper and 8 spicy nuggs from BK for dinner, their app would not process my payment. Audible to Wendy's for a Double Pretzel burger and free pub fries in the app. Roll up, Drive thru line out of the parking lot. Rage cancel! 3 Beef Burritos at the Tacobell next door. Burrito man was heavy handed and blessed me with an abundance of beef and nacho cheese. Paired with a 12 ounce pale ale and some FF room temp water.

My next tacobell order will put me above the 250 point mark for my first reward, which will undoubtedly be cinnamon twists

Re: New fast food discussion/review thread

Nice meal Grando, love that $10 meal for "2".

I'm on monkey tilt though, went to get my $2 KFC sando and they were sold out. Seems pretty bush league and they should have been handing out rain checks. So I peel out of there to go to popeyes to try the new chicken sando that arrived in Canada on Saturday. Of course there's a massive line and I'm in a rush, despite there being no line whatsoever last time I drove by. Hyachachacha. So off to Taco bell where I learn they no longer have my 2 double quesorito coupon meal and I get taken to valuetown. Luckily they took my request for LOTS of fire sauce seriously this time and I managed to get about 30.

Re: New fast food discussion/review thread

Did my McDs spicy nuggets run too. I thought the nuggets were good: just a hint more spicy and flavorful than regular, but an upgrade nonetheless. Mighty hot sauce was legit. It had serious heat for fast food, I was sweating after eating 8 nuggets with the sauce. Spicy up front and continued to build up. Overall, very solid B+ from me.

I also wanted to add on. McDouble was $2.89 (aren't these supposed to cost $1?), but a bacon mcdouble then seemed like a bargain at $3.09. Ordered one, extra pickle, and enjoyed it thoroughly. Pro tip: hot mustard is near GOAT level for dipping burger bites.

A few hours, one local burger and 3 beers later I decided to treat myself to a popeyes spicy chicken sandwich and apple pie on the way home. JFC that chicken sandwich is so good. The first couple bites I actually thought there was too much breading and thought maybe I didn't like it as much as I remembered, but man as I got to the middle I remembered just how huge, juicy and delicious it is. This thing is seriously in the running as the greatest fast food item of all time. And I can't believe it's still priced at $3.99, even in Seattle. As I said before, 6 nuggets is $4.69 for comparison at my McDs. I don't know what I'd do or how much I'd weigh if my closest Popeyes wasn't almost an hour away round trip.

Instead of apple pie I got what looked to be strawberry and cream. It was a perfectly solid fast food desert.

Confession: I put Arby's Sauce on pizza yesterday. Would not recommend. I love Arby's Sauce and I love pizza but they do not play well together. Def took one for the team here.

I never would have considered this, but despite your warning I am now intrigued.

Dipped, poured on top of an already baked pizza, or made a homemade pizza with arby's sauce as base?

I feel like dipping a meat lovers pizza in horsey sauce might be an undiscovered elite play.

Re: New fast food discussion/review thread

I'm now almost convinced that either Arby's Sauce or Horsey sauce will be finding a spot on my next leftover pizza. Assuming I have either of those in the house--grr.

Re: New fast food discussion/review thread

I went for Rick's Spicy Nuggets and a couple of road McDoubles today. I was the only person in the drive thru line and still had a ten minute wait fot fresh Nuggets. Not bad, but I get home and the SOBs 2-stepped me and gave me plain gross nuggets on top of my cold McDoubles.

I only ate one burger. And left the bag beside a homeless guy sleeping in the park across the street from my apt.

God I hate it here.

Oh man, what a rollercoaster of a post!

Did you eat all the nuggets? (Im thinking I took only ate one burger not literally enough!)


And somehow I'm still battling with myself over going back to Rick's today. Dying for redemption!
