Popeyes Chicken Waffle Tenders: The Snacktaku Review

Did you really think I'd let July 29 go by without a review of the most exciting fast food item to hit the market since something really exciting I can't think of right now? I sure didn't.


I am horribly sick, and not just mentally. My whole body aches, I am in and out of fever — I should be resting and drinking plenty of fluids. Maybe nibbling a saltine. The only reason I remembered today was the day Popeyes was launching its new Chicken Waffle Tenders was because there's a location on the way to the drug store, where I was heading to buy $20 worth of stuff that would not work.

I should have driven past. I did not. I had a duty to fulfill, and as long as my tastebuds were not compromised (they were fine) and I can eat without losing it on camera, it's a duty I will never shirk.

A duty I will gladly shirk, however, is typing. Instead, here's my video review. I apologize for my face.

The verdict? Juicy chicken cooked to perfection, coated in a gorgeously crispy and light batter with a hint of maple. Combined with the honey maple dipping sauce, Popeyes Chicken Waffle Tenders are downright heavenly.


I look forward to eating more later in the week, when my body isn't compelled to violently expel them two hours later (they still tasted good).


Snacktaku is Kotaku's take on the wild and wonderful world of eating things, but not eating meals. Eating meals is for those with too much time on their hands. Past critiques can be found at the Snacktaku review archive.
