Welcome To Taste of States a place where we celebrate the weird and wonderful food of the United States of America. This can be everything from the snacks that are available for a limited time to the foods that are classic traditions at events such as Christmas and Thanksgiving! Each week we will explore the facts and the history surrounding a different food.
LOADED CHICKEN NUGGETS
Today we look at a food that used to be available at a fast food chain called Jack In The Box. This restaurant was founded in 1951 by Robert O Peterson in San Diego, California. Today, Jack In The Box has over 2,000 locations around the USA and is predominantly found on the West Coast.
The Loaded Chicken Nuggets were an item that was on the menu for a limited time, Each order came with fried chicken nuggets that were coated in breading that were then covered in cheese, ranch dressing and bacon, To purchase the product was between $4-7 depending on how many that you bought.
The nuggets got a lot of varied reviews with a lot of them commenting on the fact that it was a very salty dish. Some people felt the nuggets tasted of a rubbery texture, however a lot of people liked the flavour of the nuggets and the toppings together.
