However, Taco Bell may have some issues of its own if our review of their crispy chicken nuggets is any sign. The reviewer found them moist but without much crunch or flavor in the breading. On the plus side, they’re enjoyable when dipped in the accompanying Jalapeño Honey Mustard sauce, which is only available with the purchase of nuggets. As this is still a new item, Taco Bell hasn’t published a detailed list of ingredients or similar stats for the chicken-to-weight ratio.
This isn’t the first attempt at chicken nuggets or fried chicken from Taco Bell, which briefly offered naked chicken chips back in 2017. In 2021, Taco Bell offered a crispy chicken sandwich taco that received similarly decent but not great reviews. And, who could forget the naked chicken chalupa, a chalupa shell made from fried chicken and stuffed with veggies and toppings?
Will Taco Bell’s nuggets really be high-quality enough to dethrone the Golden Arches? Only time will tell, but it’s safe to say the fast-food fried chicken wars aren’t ending anytime soon.
