Before my visit to Wendy's I wasn't going to post this because I didn't expect it to be anything special, but that changed...

Yesterday I got a $1.00-off coupon for this item from Wendys.com in my email. I printed it out, and stopped by on my way home from work tonight.

I made my order and presented the coupon. The cashier didn't know what to do with it so she brought it to her manager.

The manager puzzled over it and then told me they don't accept email coupons from Wendy's because she thought they were email fraud, but she'd give it to me this one time. She also pointed out to me the date on the coupon and said it had expired yesterday. The expiration date is June 24 and this is May, but she'd said she'd honor it anyway, even though she doesn't, so I didn't argue.

They rang up my order, and I thought I saw zero on the register, and they didn't ask me for any money, but I didn't expect to be walking away with my order for free. I did expect to get boneless wings completely covered in sauce like in the photos.

The order taker grabbed seven bare chicken nuggets, squirted them with a squeeze bottle of sauce as if it were ketchup, and gave me the above.

She got the completed orders for a few other people and when she noticed me still waiting for her, I said, "Don't you want me to pay for this?" "No, you're all set." I said, "Okayyyy..." and left with my order and the coupon (they didn't want it).

Not only didn't the manager pay attention to the expiration date, she didn't pay attention to the offer as well, and gave them to me for free. After saying she didn't accept email coupons.

I'm so confused.

The sauce was good, though. A little on the sweet side, but it was actually spicy enough to sting, not like the usual fast food promises of "hot" that deliver barely hotter than ketchup. Even though Wendy's claims the chicken is real breast, however, they were no different than the bargain chicken nuggets you get in the supermarket. In fact, I think you can easily reproduce this item by squirting supermarket nuggets with Huy Fong Sriracha hot chili sauce.
