I love chicken nuggets, and I eat them pretty often for lunch and dinner. And I have never been too picky when it comes to them until I tried some that I absolutely hated. I asked which chicken nuggets they were, and my mom said they were Wegmans store brand chicken nuggets. So to see if this was just a bad bag or if store brand chicken nuggets really are a lot worse, this month I decided to compare them. I compared Harris Teeter’s store brand chicken nuggets and Tyson’s chicken nuggets. The store brand chicken nuggets were about a little more than a dollar cheaper for the same amount of nuggets.

Here are the two nugget brands side by side. Thes nuggets ended up being pretty similar.

Once I took the nuggets out of the bag, I immediately noticed the difference of color. The store brand nuggets were a lot lighter and much more yellowish. Other than color the nuggets were still pretty similar in taste and texture. I cooked them for the same amount of time however, Tyson’s nuggets ended up being much crispier. Then I tasted them, for the most part, the chicken inside them tasted pretty similar. The outside, however, was very different. The outside or crust of Tyson’s nuggets was very seasoned, and the store brand nugget’s crust was pretty bland. Overall I liked both of the nuggets and thought they tasted pretty similar.

Then at dinner, I had my brother blindly taste both of them and try to guess which was which. He guessed right, and he said he preferred Tyson’s ones. When I asked him why he said “They taste better and crisper,” which was along the lines of what I thought too. I also had my dad taste both of the nuggets, he also liked both of the nuggets and preferred the Tyson’s. Both of them, however, said that there wasn’t much of a difference, and they would eat and enjoy them both.

Here are the two nuggets after being cooked. They were very different in color, however pretty similar in shape.

I think that in this case, spending the extra money for Tyson’s chicken nuggets just isn’t worth it. They taste very similar and it wouldn’t be worth the extra money just for a little bit of seasoning. They are both very good, and pretty similar. So the store brand nuggets are the better option in this case.
