Ranking Fast Food Chicken Nuggets — Bless Your Rank


– Hey you! Welcome to Bless Your Rank. My name is Matt. Today, we are ranking
fast food chicken nuggets. Or nugs, if you’re cool. Chickie nugs. Don’t do that. Just call ’em nuggets. (banjo strumming) Don’t fast forward to the
end to see what happens. That’s cheating. I can tell. We can tell when you
skip ahead in the video. We can see those numbers
and you need to stop. I mean this is basically
like fine literature. It is meant to be enjoyed,
one page after another. I’m the Bill Shakespeare of fast food. So today is going to be
a very interesting day. I have not declared my allegiance yet. I enjoy the chickie nugs. They are my favorite type
of things that end in ug. Nugs, hugs, pugs, and in
257th place, Uggs, the boots. Drugs if it’s my heart burn medication. My ranking system, here’s what it is, even though I don’t always stick to it. I make this up as I go along folks. Have you not figured that out yet? Number one, taste, ’cause it’s about food. Obviously that’s how you taste food. I really don’t know what else we need to do other than taste. It’s not a beauty contest. Chicken nuggets are like people. They come in all shapes
and sizes and colors and they are all beautiful. – [Background Crowd] Awww. – Oh yeah, we’re not doing sauce here. Sauce changes the game. Full disclosure, I’m not
really a dipping nuggets into sauce kind of guy. You know why? ‘Cause I’m usually eating
nuggets while I’m driving. Have you ever tried to dip in sauce and drive down a back road? Potholes everywhere. It’s just not, it’s not gonna work. Don’t sauce and drive. Sauce from the comfort of your own home, where no one can see you. All right, here we go. Competitor number one. KFC. Also known as, Kentucky Fried Chicken. I’ve never had KFC nuggets before. I did not know until today that KFC even had chicken nuggets. But I’m understanding
that some of these places call it popcorn chicken? Why are we calling it popcorn chicken? What? ‘Cause I can just put it in my mouth? Nuggets are the same thing. You can eat a nugget in one bite. If you can’t eat a nugget in one bite, it is a small chicken tender. There’s a classification
system, look it up. I didn’t write it. It’s been there, for decades. I learned about it in school. I like the presentation. I feel like you can maybe
fit this in a cup holder. Oh yeah. I feel like you put a little bow on this and give this as a present. (popping) Look at that. Fun. If you, once you get it in your mind that the bolo tie that
Colonel Sanders is wearing is actually his arms and his leg, you can never unsee that. Look at that. That’s his tiny little arm and
that’s his tiny little leg. I’ve ruined that for you now. And you’re welcome. That will haunt your dreams now. Hey, let’s eat it. That’s enough talking. This is basically a nugget. This is nugget size. This is weird you call
this popcorn chicken. That’s not bad. It kind of taste like chicken
I can just make at home. And I’m quickly reminded why
I don’t like popcorn chicken ’cause they’re these tiny pieces here that are too small to
have any chicken meat whatsoever in it. This is just a fried ball. Let me hear you out. Some people are gonna
say, that’s the best part. The only time excess fried batter with no meat on it
whatsoever is acceptable, is at Captain D’s. And those are called Cracklins. And they’re delicious. They’re okay. I mean they’re better than
I though they would be. And right now, KFC is number one, ’cause they’re the only
one that I’ve had yet. Don’t smile too much
there, Colonel Sanders, ’cause that won’t last. That kind of makes me sad to
put KFC first in anything. They’re not first place
in anything at all. Except weird commercials. Competitor number two. Sonic. Another place that I did not
realize had chicken nuggets. These are massive. It’s about human eye ball size. Those of you who have held a
human eyeball in your hand, you can relate. You’ll know exactly the
size I’m talking about. There’s nothing popcorn about that. There’s, I’ve never had a piece
of popcorn that’s this big. That’s some genetically
modified monster corn. For too long in this country, we’ve had no standard of
what is a chicken nugget, what is popcorn chicken,
what is chicken tenders? And I’m tired of it. I want us to define what that is. I don’t know what organization does that, but get on it. ‘Cause this, is not popcorn chicken. This is actually really good. Oh man. I wasn’t expecting that. I’ve been sleeping on Sonic nuggets. I’ve been getting that
foot long cheese coney. And this is where it’s been at. This is good chunk of chicken right here. What size is this? – [Producer] They’re called jumbo popcorn. – Okay. Ohhh, they call them jumbo popcorn. That’s nuggets! A large popcorn chicken
becomes a chicken nugget. You can’t call them jumbo popcorn chicken. I don’t. That, now I hate ’em. Now I just hate ’em
’cause of the way they, what they call ’em. The chicken nugget game is
the wild west right now. Just anything goes. Apparently you just call
them whatever you want. Okay, I’m done eating these. After much deliberation, I
think that Sonic out of the two, has the best chicken nuggets. They were delicious actually. It made me rethink my
whole order at Sonic. And I’ve been doing it all wrong. Our third competitor, bud-a-bud-a-duh. Mc-Dee-on-alds. Or, if you’re from the
country, Mac Donalds. Ill say this about McDonalds. Out of all the chicken nuggets that were gonna eat here today, they’re right there with good nuggets that I’ve had the most. There are only so many
shapes of mcnuggets. Like they’re basically, they go through the mcnugget
cookie cutter, I think. They have names? Okay, so apparently there are
four basic mcnugget shapes and they all have names. And now my producers are
aware of what they are called and I’m going to guess them. (crowd cheering This one, right here. This is either the guitar
pick or the millennium falcon. (buzzer) The bell? If our Liberty Bell looked like this, we would still belong to Great Britain. This, I call this, this is the boot. (dinging) The boot, I got it right? – [Producer] Whoa. – Batting 500. There you go. This is just a, almost a perfect circle. This is called the moonpie. (buzzer) What is this called? The circle? The ball? I would not, I’d be
really careful referring to shapes of mcnuggets and
saying, oh, that’s the ball. Id just be real careful there. I don’t know what this, this is like the trapezoid. The sheep dog. The fat buffalo. (buzzer) What? This one has a spot on it. This one should probably
go see a dermatologist and get that checked out. Or my mouth. These got cold. They’re not great. Still pretty good though. Oh wait, this is the first
one that I can count. There’s supposed to be
10 mcnuggets in this box. One is in my belly. Two, three, four, five,
six, seven, eight, nine, 10. They did it. Although I’m not so sure about this one. I’m a little shocked right
now that these are not better. Compared to like Sonic, that I don’t think I’ve ever had before, there just not as good. I think that they’re better than KFC’s. I do want to point out
to McDonalds though, that go to wherever you’re making this, highlight the text. Then go up to font and
press downsize twice. Then it will all fit. You won’t keep having this problem. Okay. Second place. I feel, I feel, I feel
all right about this. McDonalds. Competitor number four is Wendy’s. This is, this is a lot of chicken. Did you check, what if they
gave you the wrong order? Barbecue sauce. And it’s cut open with a razor blade. – [Producer) Whoa. – This is a, this is a message from Wendy for how we treated her
in the burger ranking. So what, Wendys, oh! It looks like Wendy’s stole
the mcnugget cookie cutter. That’s a cowboy boot. That’s a fancy cowboy boot. This is the kind of boot you show off. You put these on, you’re like, I’m going to the Brooks and Dunn concert. And you do that right there. Shimmy shake right there, just like that. I wonder who they got opening for them. How many, okay, how many
of these were supposed to be in here? A 10 piece? Well then, let’s check Wendy’s work here. Let’s check her math. One, two, four, five, nine, 10. That’s a generous 10. I don’t ever like crave
nuggets and go to Wendy’s. I go to Wendy’s, I’m gonna get a frosty. Some people are all about the
chicken nuggets at Wendy’s. Probably ’cause you get
four of them for $.99. That’s a pretty good deal. Not bad. This is super salty. Okay. They’re not offensive. I wouldn’t go crazy about these. I wouldn’t say oh man, I just got the best
nugs ever from Wendy’s. Probably ’cause I would not use nugs in a sentence in casual conversation. Okay, putting these back in the container ’cause I don’t wanna look at them anymore. For some reason, they’re much sadder when you lay them out on a napkin. This is the most vanilla
of the many nuggets that I’ve had today. And it’s not a bad thing. I don’t care for them. I don’t feel like they’re
number one by any means. There’s apparently spicy
nuggets now at Wendy’s. That would be delicious. But I’m not ranking the
spicy nuggets here today. I’m ranking your straight up, regular, classic chicken nuggets. And these are just fine. If someone tells you, what
did you have to eat today and they’re just like, I only
ate Wendy’s chicken nuggets. That’s a cry for help. You are the freezer section
down at sore nuggets of the fast food world. You’re in fourth place. Please don’t roast me on Twitter, Wendy. I’m too fragile. All right, number five, five. Chick-fil-A. That’s how you know we do not
film these videos on Sunday. I don’t order these, and
here’s why you don’t order chicken nuggets at a place
that serves chicken tenders. It’s just bad math. I have a feeling if we
count this out right now and there’s not eight,
a Chick-fil-A employee will bust through this ceiling and will bring down fresh nuggets to make up for their mistake. They’ll know. One, two, three, although
that looks like seahorse, and not chicken. Five, six, seven, eight. What is going on here? This is like fried artwork. This looks like Adam and God reaching out. Like that’s what this looks like. It looks like the Sistine Chapel. So I can’t even be mad at that. This is art. I knew this would happen. I knew this would happen. I’d walk in here today and I’d say, this is gonna be a level playing field, they’ve all got a chance. And then I take a bite of that Chick-fil-A and it just taste different. It just tastes a little
bit like real chicken. I think that might be the secret. All right, I’m gonna stop
eating all, not really. Okay. Takes a long time to chew
’em, ’cause it’s real chicken. It’s not processed
chicken they’ve already, somebody chewed for you. Look at this. Even the receipt, that I
can’t show you right now, has got everything on this. First and last name on the bag. I can tell you all about your
day from this Chick-fil-A receipt right here. You can get it outside, you
were driving a white Crossover, you were in zone five,
register 40 rang you up. Your total was $4.39. It was 1:51. They told you my pleasure 11 times. And someone named Susan
prayed over this meal and you were added to Fultondale
First Baptist prayer list. All of that I got from this
receipt, the whole thing. I knew this would not be fair. It’s not fair to Chick-fil-A
calls these nuggets while everybody else
calls theirs nuggets, too. It’s a completely different league. It’s like professional
baseball against minor leagues and then T-ball, over here. Right now this is not even close. Chick-fil-A chicken
nuggets are in first place. Competitor number six, our last entry into the
competition, Burger King. And it is a, this is a hefty bag. Burger King has never done
well in anything ever, no, no, no, no, Bless Your
Rank burgers, they did. They have a Whopper. It’s delicious. Let’s count ’em. Should be 10 in a bag. One, two, three, four, five, six, nine, nine. That’s the most Burger King thing. Anissa, did you eat a Burger King nugget? – [Anissa] No. – (laughing) What is, what are these numbers for? What kind of secret code is this? So there’s chicken with
a six, chicken with a 10, which is what we ordered. And then, numbers one through 12. What is the secret code? If I solve this code, do
I become the Burger King? Is this how you become the
heir to the burger throne? I’m not even excited about these. These just look sad. Here we go, Burger King. Rock my world. Okay, something is becoming
very apparent to me. Burger King and Wendy
got together apparently, and said how do we make the
most blandest chicken nugget and make it as cheap as possible? And this is the product they came up with. I mean they’re just identically, medicore. These serve as nothing more
than ways to move sauce from the container to your mouth. These are just edible spoons. A chicken died for this. A chicken that could’ve
been fried chicken, chicken wings, chicken tenders. Could’ve been at Chick-fil-A. Chick-fil-A could’ve done so
much more to this chicken. See that? See that little chick right there? He deserved better. He didn’t die for this. This is also gonna be
impossible to stick the– It’s in last place, if
you really needed me to tell you that. It’s not terrible, but it’s not good. It’s sufficient. They should not be, they should not call them chicken nuggets. They should be called sufficient chicken. What did we learn today? We learned that I do have
a favorite chicken nugget after all, and it’s Chick-fil-A. (crowd cheering) Because they’re the only place up here that’s actually serving things
that taste like real chicken. I learned that Sonic’s
jumbo popcorn chicken, while the name infuriates me, is actually pretty tasty. McDonalds chicken nuggets
just taste like childhood. These, down here, are okay. Wendy’s, Burger King,
they’re sufficient chicken. And that’s good enough for most people. So there you go. Happy nuggeting? I don’t know. Enjoy your nuggets. Share. Sharing’s caring. And sauce responsibly. Don’t sauce and drive. Do nugs not drugs. Peace out, homies.

  1. The "difference" between nuggets and popcorn chicken is nuggets are fried blended up mixture of breast and thigh meat while popcorn chicken is just battered and fried chicken breast meat. McNuggets are still a classic for me.

  2. All of Chick-Fil-A's food is great for fast food, shame they have to be super homophobic/transphobic and I refuse to eat there out of principle. Why couldn't somewhere trash like Burger King be openly shitty like their food is instead?

  3. Popcorn chicken is solid pieces of chicken essentially smaller boneless wings. Chicken nuggets are made from ground chicken and are far more processed hence the uniformity.

  4. I swear maybe I’m insane but when I was younger I remember kfc having these chicken nuggets that were really spicy but Soo good.. they were different from the popcorn chicken but then they switched them to the popcorn chicken and no one remembers them.. maybe I am insane

  5. i haven’t watched this yet but mcdonald’s better be #1

    edit: “we’re not doing sauce” yes sauce changes the game but it’s essential to a nugget. mcdonald’s will not win without sauce but with sauce it is the best nugget. it is the perfect sauce delivery system bar none.

  6. I skipped ahead … then felt my Southern Guilt kick in … and watched from the beginning … I'm sorry y'all

  7. So i was a district manager of a Burger King. The numbers are as followed the chicken with a 6 and a 10 identify if its a 6 pc or a 10 pc. the numbers 1-12 are to tell how old they are on the heat shoot, the numbers are increments of 5min so if they where placed in the bag at 5:30 they are good till 5:40 so you would circle the number 8

  8. I work at a kfc and a fun fact about the popcorn is that it is the only chicken we have other than wings that don't get breaded on site. They go from freezer to fryer whereas the tenders, the bone in chicken, and the filets are breaded and seasoned on site. We used to do popcorn on site but is was to costly both time and money wise they were far better tho. I wish we went back to it.

  9. I appreciate your opinion.
    I don't have Wendy's local, and no Chick Filet or Sonic even remotely close.
    When I do get the opportunity to go to Wendy's, I always order a Dave's Double. Good burger.
    My favorite things at KFC are the mashed taters and gravy and the baked beans.
    If I go to BK it's for the flame broiled burgers. Then I cross the street and get my fries from McDonalds.
    I think McDonalds nuggets are my favorite fast food nuggets.
    I've been fighting a fast food craving for over a month now, should I succumb to it, I blame it on you, lol.

  10. I love both the Chick-fil-A nuggets & the strips & they actually have slightly different taste because of the amount of batter, but sadly I can no longer get the strips in Arizona, only the spicy strips are available now here. 😔😢😭

  11. I just discovered you and I like listening to you talk…also I like watching ppl eat. In my world the "bow tie" is West Virginia.

  12. For Burger King you circle that number so you know when you have to remove it from the warmer to discard them.

  13. They all suck unless you're a child. Or a fat ass ignorant moron such as yourself. Most grown-ups don't eat chicken nuggets

  14. The numbers have to do with holding times. They mark when the bag is put on the holding rack and they expire after a range of time. Yours were more than likely made to order.

  15. BK's nuggets taste like frozen section nuggets BUT, they're $1.49 for 10 and me and my friends used them as a party meal, ordered 14 orders of 10 piece nuggets, paid roughly $24 for 140 nuggets

  16. It's pretty simple – if I want straight chicken bits of goodness, it is Chick-fil-A… tenders. BUT

    If I want spice (and I usually do), it's Wendy's spicy nugs. No close second. With a vanilla frosty, or better yet, a vanilla frosty float with fanta orange… it's like drinking a creamsicle.

  17. I can't agree with this guy. McDonalds nuggets are crap. Wendy's are the best actual nuggets I have eaten (when fresh/hot). Haven't had BK in a while but they were usually okay, I remember the old ones where they were shaped like dinosaurs. I hated Chikfila nuggets (tasted rubbery) and won't gi back when they have the best tenders in the world available…

  18. This guy cracks me up! I am from California and about to move to Texas & so I’m trying to learn how to be a good southern person 😂

  19. ok, but seriously. McDonalds Chicken Nuggets, with HONEY was like, the best part of my childhood…and now i havent seena Mcdonalds with honey packets in over 15 years…

  20. Chick fil A is the only place that I just can't eat at without getting incredibly sick. Overrated.

    And my favorite nuggets are Wendy's nuggets. He is totally biased. He should do a blind taste test.

  21. One time I went to wendy's and ordered the chicken nuggets but got a box of crumbs instead. I have also been told at Burger King "Sorry we are out of whoppers".
