Popeye's Introduces Scoop-Shaped Chicken Nuggets

Popeye’s has created a new batch of fried chicken nuggets that feature a spoon-like curvature to them to make it easier to scoop up dipping sauce. This fast food innovation is dubbed “Dip’n Chick’n.”

This is a really good idea because I’ve often found that traditional sauce delivery methods are much too slow. You have to open up the sauce cup and dip your nugget in, and then you only get a light slathering of sauce. Now each nugget becomes its own sauce trough, allowing me to ladle on the flavor down my gullet with speed and alacrity.

The only question is, how do you breed a chicken so that it comes out shaped like a scoop? ? Is each chicken placed in a special shaping jacket at birth?

In any event, they’re only for a “limited time” and run you $3.99, which will also get you blackened ranch dipping sauce, cajun fries, and a biscuit.

It’s quite the meal, and it’ll take care of about half the calories you need in a day.

Chick’n – around 440 cal
Ranch – 300 cal
Biscuit – 260 cal
Cajun Fries – 260 cal

Looks like the seventh seal of the “funpocalypse” just got blown off!
