​If you haven't stepped into a Burger King this week, you're in for a surprise. On Monday, they debuted their newly revamped chicken nuggets. Get this: the tenders are now round and include all white meat (because they weren't all white meat before?). 

You know Burger King is no stranger to chicken shape changing. Remember the dinosaur prints and lightning bolts? Those were fun. We're going to miss the nostalgic tender shape and the newer crown shape, but the changes were made due to high consumer preferences for a rounder chicken nugget a la McDonald's. The batter's ingredients have also been changed a bit. 

A 4-piece order can be purchased for a cool $1, great recession proof deal, while the 8-piece goes for $1.99 and the 20-piece for $4.99. Plus, South Florida residents can participate in the Facebook contest Tender 8 which gets you a BOGO coupon: buy one 8-piece chicken tenders value meal and get one FREE. Talk about a cheap date.

This is so disappointing.  If I wanted McDonalds nuggets then I will go to McDonalds...

White slime.  As differentiated from Pink Slime which is a beef "product."  Chicken tenders are about as much like real chicken, as a paper is like a tree.

Hated the dark meat. Nasty! Won't eat dark meat chicken. The cheepoes that pawned off that left over meat into nuggets were just conning the consumer. If it is not white meat, no need to serve it. Feed your dark meat or mixed nuggets to the dog...they may like them...if it doesn't make them sick.

anyone know the name of the tune to the commercial? I feel like it is from a certain hip hop song and I'm dying trying to figure it out..

I got a coupon to try them for free. I didn't hate them, but I found nothing particularly special about them either. I'll probably stick with Wendy's.

When McDonalds changed their nuggets I actually thought they started tasting better. I was really little back then but I know I always used to not like some of the nuggets while others I did. After the change, I liked them all. However, I also used to LOVE burger king nuggets. They were my favorite nugget of all time until now. Now they taste atrocious. The first time I got them I took one bite and thought I was going to vomit. I then had to go get some nuggets at wendys. Ugh. I'm so sad.

I could have written this comment! I liked the white meat McNuggets alright, but Burger chicken nuggets I could eat everyday; they were just so good. Then this past Tuesday I went to get my chicken nuggets at Burger King, and thought there must have been some mistake, but I took the nuggets anyway. I took one bite and thought I also would throw up and couldn't bring myself to eat another bite! I just had to throw them away =(

What the hell is it with the white meat? It's dry, bland, undistinguished, and EVERYWHERE.

I remember when, in a McDonald's 20-box, the white meat ones were the ones you gave away, calling yourself generous and moderate: "20 pieces? Too much. Here, have these Dusty McRusties, I mean, (white meat) McNuggets." You know how the white meat ones were shaped, and pawned them off. Then Mickey D's when all white meat, and now they're ALL Dusty McRusties. I never ate one since.

Now BK wants to follow them down a hole? Don't they do taste tests? Is it really that profitable to sell formed, fried talcum powder just so you can slap "white meat" on the box? Damn.

Ah, well. At least there's Checkers.

I agree 100%. Can you believe that some people I talk to never even noticed when the dark meat nuggets went away? Really? They didn't notice that they went from SOME nuggets being chock full of flavor to ALL the nuggest tasting like cardboard? And I agree on burger king not going the flavor route here. They had a tastier nugget/tender than mcdonalds white meat ones all these years and their brand new plan is to copy the cardboard nuggets? What?
