Review of Nice! Buffalo-Style Chicken Wings

by StevenHelmer

I purchased a box of these while at our local Walgreen's yesterday. Read to find out what I thought of them.

Product Description: Frozen Buffalo-style chicken wings from the Walgreen's Nice! brand. I purchased a box of these wings yesterday afternoon for a little under $3 while picking up a prescription at our local Walgreen's Pharmacy. I ended up making the chicken wings in our toaster oven last night and serving them with dinner.

Review

My wife and I had a busy afternoon yesterday and, realizing neither of us had made dinner plans (or felt like cooking anything), I decided to dig into our freezer for a couple frozen pizzas.

I wasn't sure if the pizza was going to be enough so, since I had to make a trip up the street to our local Walgreen's anyway, I decided to look for something to go with the pizza. This ended up being a box of their Nice! Buffalo-Style Chicken Wings.

I've had other products from the Nice! brand before and, for the most part, have had no complaints about it. However, this was the first time I had tried the Buffalo-style wings and I wasn't really sure what to expect. Overall, they proved to be a good decision.

I'll start out by saying the Buffalo seasoning on these wings did prove to be a bit spicier than I was expecting to be. This wasn't a huge deal and we were able to eat them. But, it would be something I would take into consideration the next time I would consider purchasing them because, while I don't hate spicy food, it's not something that goes with everything.

Other than that, there really wasn't anything about these I didn't like. The wings, unlike many other brands we've purchased (including quite a few that were more expensive), had plenty of meat on them and, because of that, proved to be filling. In fact, even though we had these with pizza last night, I thought they were filling enough to be served alone as a snack or light lunch.

The wings were also easy to make. Since I had to wait for the pizza oven anyway, I ended up making these in our toaster oven and they turned out fantastic with very little work. I could have also made them in the microwave had I chosen to. And, that option (which isn't always available), is a nice one to have for times when we might be in a bit more of a hurry.

The fact these also came fully prepared in the box was also appreciated. There are way too many brands out there that make you add the Buffalo sauce yourself and, if I'm going to have to do that, there's really no point in buying them for the convenience.

Final Opinion

As I mentioned, these did prove to be a bit spicier than I was expecting. But, overall, I thought this was a good purchase. The brand offered decent quality for a reasonable price and I would consider purchasing them again.
