Wendy's Introduces Boneless Chicken Wings

Up Next For Wendy's: Boneless Chicken Wings

Hoping to boost this year's sales — and prove that it's still "waaaay better than fast food" — fast food chain Wendy's has announced plans to unveil a new menu item, boneless chicken wings, later this month. The boneless wings — which will compete head to head with KFC's new Kentucky Grilled Chicken — come in three different flavors: Sweet & Spicy Asian, Honey BBQ, and Bold Buffalo. "Our new Boneless Wings are as far as it gets from fast food," Ken Calwell, Wendy's chief marketing officer, said. "Sweet & Spicy Asian wings are something you'd find at an upscale restaurant."

The new item will set you back $3.99 for seven to nine wings (depending on weight), and will be available in a combo meal for $5.69. Since I'm a buffalo wing fiend, I'll definitely check these out — although I'm skeptical about the idea of them being "upscale restaurant" fare. Still, with McDonald's doing froufrou coffee drinks and Burger King barbecuing ribs, the fast food climate seems to be changing. Do fast food's newest items interest you?

they don't interest me at all. I stop into Wendy's because it's so cheap. 3.99 is not cheap. Also when I go to a fast food restaurant it's to eat fast food. If I want normal food I'll cook at home or get actual restaurant takeout.

:rotfl: @ "is this dude for real" Boneless wings are a little weird. When I had them, my son said, "so boneless wings...aren't they just nuggets?" :rotfl:

"Sweet & Spicy Asian wings are something you'd find at an upscale restaurant." Is this dude for real? On the flip side: The images are irrelevant - this was a radio ad. But it's brilliant.

Something about boneless wings freaks me out. I dunno, it's just like a boneless drumstick or something. Weird.

i guess indianapolis is a test market, cause we've had them for at least a month. they're exactly what they say they are: pieces of chicken doused with flavored sauces. i'd say they're about as good as the ones we can get at BW3. I remember there being a ridiculous number of pieces for the price point. It's nice to have the change of pace from burgers, I guess. For as seldom as I visit fast food restaurants, the variety of food/drink options are beginning to be unbearable.

We have the boneless chicken wings here already. I have tried them, and they are pretty good. I had mine with the side salad and although I know the wings are prolly alot worse nutritionally than I want to know, I felt like I was eating healthier. Their side salads rock. They are always fresh and good, no brown lettuce and everything is crisp. They are a decent size too.

i have to say that i have zero interest in any of these new items. i get that they are all evolving their menus but it's over kill at this point.
