Popeyes NEW Voodoo Chicken Tenders Review

October 27, 2019 100 By William Morgan


Hello everyone, this is running on empty
food review
Well, hello, ladies and gentlemen and everyone watching
This is running on empty food review and I am your host the report of the week
So here we are trying out a new
release from Popeyes
There’s that this is this is the probably the most precarious
Review I’ve ever done in my life
Probably without a doubt
You know, the adrenaline is pumping right now. I have to tell you that up front
The adrenaline is pumping. I feel like I’m going skydiving and
bungee jumping and
going on, you know like a
200 mile-per-hour
motorcycle ride I’m swimming with the sharks the the Megalodon sharks and
Everything in between all in one because I’m out here. There’s some severe thunderstorms rolling in as we speak
But I said, I’m just I want to review this item from Popeyes anyway, so I am and it’s just the excitement from this item
the the storms
I couldn’t even exaggerate that properly. But yeah, it’s a it’s a thrill. All right
Looking for my notes that I took down. Here we go
These are the voodoo chicken tenders from Popeyes. And this is the first Popeyes review that I’ve done
since the the infamous
chicken sandwich and
They’ve done a few releases since then but this is one of those things that got me going
Because the moment I saw this I knew
this is going to be that perfect Halloween themed item because you know
Who would have thought right you have these these fast food places that make partnerships, you know
They partner with one place
they partner with another they get sponsored by this or that you know, you see this happen all the time where like
you have Burger King and the Cheetos that’ll team up and
So on and so forth
Who would have thought that?
Popeyes would have teamed up with voodoo doughnuts to make these these voodoo chicken tenders
I mean
that’s the most like insane combination ever because I remember I’d heard of this doughnut chain a while back and it was like, oh
right
You know, I saw some sort of video on them and they were only on the west coast and then they finally opened up one
in Orlando here at
Universal Studios, and I remember I went there is delicious. The frosting was great and
It was like I can’t believe they got this
So the fact that they’re partnering up with this is out of this world. I mean it is absolutely insane
so
Yeah, that was probably the worst joke I’ve ever done so far. I
Couldn’t help them. No – the voodoo chicken tenders though. They are supposed to be sweet though
Kind of not like a doughnut but they do have a sweetness to it. They’re crispy chicken strips with a garlicky sweet chili voodoo sauce
Which again is supposed to have this type of sweetness to it?
So it will partly correct there
But it also is supposed to have a little bit of a spiciness as well. And then it comes with decorative chives on it
So it’s just supposed to be like a spicy sweet
flavor to it
$5 meal deal as always and
Despite the high humidity. I’m out here. I’m battling the weather the severe weather and everything in between and I even have this little
Little friend right here. It’s actually a little voodoo doll of me
you can see with the tie and everything and
There I am with it
Right there looks just like me you can see the massive eye compared to the other one and a nice little Halloween necktie
There are no pins in it at this point thankfully but depending on the review, I think that’ll probably change at some point soon
But let’s open this up and see what we got
All right, so it’s the chicken tenders with the Voodoo
sauce
Let’s get the focus off
Right there
That’s what they look like
You can see there is some of that sauce on the middle totally covered in it
since it comes with a biscuit and a side I got the fries and standard fries and
If you want more sauce so you can get it
extra the Voodoo sauce
But it’s supposed to be like a sweet and spicy type of combination
Which is something I look forward to I always like it where they have that spiciness. That isn’t too insane. That isn’t too crazy
But is interested with this a little bit of a sweetness as well. So that’s nice to kind of offset it
Well, put it on the plate right there the the official feeding plate
Like I’m giving a sacrificial offering to you the viewer to the YouTube gods
Popeyes corporate
Hopefully, I’ll get your blessings that this is a good one good item
There’s the
decorative
Leafy greens when I they’re not really leafy greens, but you know what, I mean?
Kind of that almost looks like someone flexing their muscles, doesn’t it? Kind of looks like me with my massive
muscles right there
But you can see partially covered with the sauce so I think you know what there is to it
I know what there is to it. I’m gonna try it out first without any extra sauce
Then what I’ll do is I’ll try it out with
You know the extra food do the sauce really. I just want to try this out see how it is and
Yeah, Popeyes one of those places that
Started off good then got really really bad for a time. But they’re picking back up. I mean like the whole chicken sandwich thing
I think brought them to the next level. So hopefully this will be good and
We’ll try it out the Voodoo chicken tenders from Popeyes. Let’s go
You can faintly see some cumulonimbus clouds over there
I know if we’ll capture any lightning but hey, it’s all good
And then I’ll try
I’m about to try
This piece right here just I’ll dip it in the sauce got some more concentrated flavor
If you couldn’t tell already I’m like it I I am I’m a fan of it
Take a sip of water
I’m a big fan of these quite honestly some
People as I was researching these I was trying to get some info about him
You know gather up that Intel I was listening to the Popeyes numbers station on the shortwave, trying to get that
secret info about it and
I was looking around and one person I remember was saying
They were really disappointed with this. I know I was thinking to myself. Yeah, but I’m gonna be impartial
I’m gonna have you know, I’m not gonna try and be biased or anything
It’ll taste like what it tastes like
But I remember they were saying they thought it was so bland and so dry and you know, like they they thought it was god-awful
Well, but if I try this I’m impressed by it quite frankly
It has a really good blend of that sweetness and that spiciness
the sweetness comes in like
You know what? It reminds me of it reminds me almost like a but the fruity type of sweetness, you know
Not like they just dumped sugar but like, you know the natural sweetness that you get maybe in something like pineapple with something
not that it’s really pineapple flavoured but almost has that little bit of a
Hint of that type of of sweetness. It’s like a very just subtle sweetness. It’s just it’s really nice and
That’s the first thing that you notice and it just gives it a nice sweetness
It blends together really well with the chicken and then you get this spice. It’s like it’s a lingering spiciness, you know
It’s not overwhelming. It’s not overbearing
But it says prominently featured
That it just it’s like this
transformative flavor you go in and the first bites you get you get that a little bit of a sweetness and
Then you get this spice and it says you kind of swallow it down
then you notice the spiciness in the back of your mouth there and
You really notice it it’s not again like it’s overwhelming but it’s just like they’ve really nailed the blend on this
I wouldn’t necessarily say this is like a Cajun inspired type of dish but they’ve really nailed the blend
Between that sweetness and spiciness and this is like a perfect and I really like it
you can’t really taste the chives on that much and
They described it as being a garlicky. I don’t really taste any sort of garlic on it
So that’s my one thing but honestly, the chicken itself is still juicy. It’s still tender
It’s good quality meat honestly, and it still has that nice crispy crunch to it as well. So honestly, I
Mean, I think that Popeyes did a darn good job with us
I think they did a really good job five dollar deal chicken tastes good good chicken tenders, but honestly,
I just really like this the sauce how it blends together perfectly one is not any more
Overwhelming than the other it just mixes together. I mean they nailed this sauce
So I really recommend you check this out for $5 you can get
The chicken tenders and the side as well and out of ten eight point five out of ten. I’m impressed with Popeyes
they did a good job and
Yeah, I’m a fan so good on you Popeyes. You guys did a good job and with that
I think I’m gonna pack it up and start cowering because I see that storms really rolling in here
But with that yeah, at least I have some good chicken tenders to snack on while I’m sheltering in place
Oh
But honestly, I’ll stay safe
