Review of TGI Friday's Honey BBQ Wings

by StevenHelmer

I purchased a box of these to go with our pizza dinner last night. Read to find out what I thought of them.

Product Description: Frozen honey barbecue wings from the TGI Friday's brand. I purchased a box of these yesterday afternoon at one of our local grocery stores for $4.05 and ended up preparing them in our microwave (as per the instructions on the box) as an appetizer to go with the pizza we made for dinner last night.


I picked up a pizza from one of our grocery store delis last Friday and, mostly because we were too tired to cook after being on our feet all day at the mall (we were shopping for winter coats for our very uncooperative daughters), my wife and I decided to make it for dinner last night. However, we also wanted something to go with it and, since I needed to run to the store for some cat food anyway, I told her I would pick up some wings.

Normally, there is a brand of wings I actually prefer to buy whenever I want frozen wings to go with pizza, etc. However, the store's freezer section was surprisingly cleaned out and, after looking at some other options, I ended up settling for the TGI Friday Honey BBQ Wings instead. After having them, I pretty much have to say my opinion of them is mixed.

I will start out by saying I did like the convenience of this product. For a while, it seemed like every brand of frozen wings we purchased required us to make the sauce separately and add it to the wings, something, in my opinion at least, eliminated the actual convenience that came from purchasing a frozen brand.

This product, in comparison, had the sauce already added to the wings and, as a result, I was able to prepare them in the microwave without any real fuss. I did appreciate this because, as I mentioned, my wife and I were getting pretty tired by the time we finally sat down to eat.

As far as the overall quality goes, however, these wings did prove to be a bit of a disappointment. The honey barbecue sauce that was on them was decent, but it wasn't anything overly special either. And, the wings themselves seemed to be of a lesser quality than the brand we normally buy for about 50 cents less per box. The couple I ate seemed very fatty and didn't have a whole lot of meat on them.

As a result of this, while we didn't hate these wings, I really couldn't describe them as anything memorable either. They were just some alternative I purchased because my regular frozen brand wasn't available and didn't do anything to convince me I should purchase them instead of my regular brand.

Final Opinion

This wasn't the most expensive brand at the grocery store and, because of that, it does work as an alternative if you're in a pinch. However, as I said, there wasn't anything overly special about this brand and I wouldn't spend extra money to buy it if my regular choice is available.

StevenHelmer, Thank you for product lines, pretty pictures and practical information.
In particular, I appreciate being able to keep in mind what to have on hand in terms of quality bagged, boxed, canned, frozen, jarred products for when what I make fresh falls short of actual numbers of guests and re-serving requests. I gather that the quantity was acceptable, just not the quality.

Sometimes microwaving seems to affect the taste. Would the wings possibly have been more appealing through another way of heating?
