Don’t Waste Your Money: Are McDonald’s Mighty Wings worth it?

Posted: Updated:
(Toledo News Now) -

Many people think the new ‘Mighty Wings' at McDonald's are just a new version of the chicken McNuggets, so John Matarese put them to the test to find out if the new wings were a waste of money.

Until now, if someone mentioned McDonald's and barbecue, most people would only think of the McRib sandwich. The new Mighty Wings have arrived just in time for football season, but are they anything like real buffalo wings?

"Actually it's pretty good!" said Adam Dykes, who tried them out. "For McDonald's and a chicken wing, it's pretty tasty!"

They are not wing-shaped McNuggets – they are real, bone-in wings.

 "I like the McDonald's better [than another brand]," added Ricardo Le. "[They've] got more flavor, juicier, got more meat."

Some, however, found the crispy Mighty Wings closer to fried chicken than buffalo wings.

"It was good," said one taster. "It tastes a little like KFC. That's who I would compare it to."

Unlike traditional buffalo wings, the Mighty Wings are not slathered in sauce: you have to dip them. Doug Cottingim, though, likes that.

"I don't mind it, ‘cause this way you get as much sauce as you want," he said.

Whatever wings you choose this fall, be sure you don't waste your money.
