    • 6 month old frozen chicken turned into nuggets? If any other restaurant did this it would be laughed at. Popeyes? Naw, we good dawg...

    • What's the difference between this and their Chicken Tenders, other than the size?

      This is from Popeyes Americas President Sami Siddiqui. Not sure if it is the same in Canada.

      The U.S. is having a chicken shortage that is causing prices to increase.

      The stockpiling, a departure from the industry’s typical lean-inventory strategy, underscores the measures companies are taking to ensure steady supplies amid rising demand for dining out in the U.S. Restaurants are reporting shortages and higher prices for chicken and other key ingredients as supply chains struggle to catch up.

      “Demand is very high right now, and consumer spending is surging” as the country emerges from the pandemic, Siddiqui said. “We’re planning appropriately.”

      Whole raw chicken can be frozen for up to a year and still retain its quality, taste and texture, according to the US Department of Agriculture.

      Suppliers too have been struggling to keep up, with the United States Department of Agriculture reporting that the nation's stockpile of chicken meat had plummeted by 200 million pounds or 20% compared to last year.

      This is the same Department of Agriculture that:
      Rejecting the advice of their own expert panel, the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the US Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) announced this month that the latest edition of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans will not include considerations of environmental sustainability.
      The department of agriculture is a mouthpiece for whatever the highest bidder/lobbyist want them to say. There is very little that frozen for a year will retain its quality/taste and texture.

      I say again that if any other restaurant advertised that they were using 6 month old frozen chicken people would take pause ordering. Because it's Popeye's they'll get a pass.

    • Popeye's here (at least in GTA) have had nuggets for a long time, are they changing it?

      I like their current nuggets

      Yes. New nuggets FRESH NOT FROZEN, and indeed NOT made from chicken frozen 6 months ago. (in Canada)
      Also, there is no chicken shortage here in Canada.

    • Will they be chicken tender chunks? I find those much more appetizing.

      I’m more of a fan of tenders myself. Coated in Panko.

      Guess I know what I’m having for lunch today.

    • I tried these the other day. Basically taste like cut up pieces of Popeyes chicken tenders. Don't expect them to have a crispy coating like McNuggets.

      If I was craving nuggets, McDonald's is the place to go.

    • Had the new nuggets and they are like their chicken sandwich batter. The old nuggets were just like their tenders which I didn't mind. Seemed to me like there was less chicken and more batter in the box of 8 I had.

    • It's not as good as their nuggets from before.

      The previous version was more tender with a light batter and was essentially smaller pieces of their tenders.

      This new version has a thicker batter with a stronger starchy flavor and took away some of the mouthfeel. It is crunchier as the trade-off.

      Unfortunately, I will have to stick to their tenders from now on.

      Yup I’ve seen them at my local store and at spadina/bloor but I was craving for spicy sandwich so I bought that instead since chick fila closes on Sunday. I’ll most likely buy try them mid week to see if it holds up to mcds nuggets

    • Tried them just a couple days ago. Not very good, IMO. Bland, battery. Also not sure if it was the store we were at but there was a sign saying Mild Only

    • I usually order either the tenders or chicken sandwich, but ordered the nuggets for the kids on the weekend. I wasn't really a fan - the ratio of breading to chicken was off (way too much breading) compared to the tenders. Additionally, I usually go for spicy versions and the nuggets are only available in mild (too bland for my taste). Will stick with the tenders on my end.

    • If they can make it like McDonald's old nuggets with that buttery addictive goodness fried in tallow, I'm on on this.
