Reviewing Taco Bell’s new limited-time crispy chicken wings

For one week, Taco Bell is adding chicken wings to their menu for a limited time. The wings will only be available starting Jan. 6 and ending on Jan. 12.

The wings can be purchased after 2 p.m. and run $5.99 for an order of five.

I made my order through their app and was ready right when I arrived at the drive-thru. The wings are coated in Mexican queso seasoning and served with spicy ranch dipping sauce.

For the size, they are a little dinky and reminiscent of Buffalo Wild Wings. At five for $5.99, it’s a little pricey for what you’re getting, but after all, we are going through a wing shortage.

First bite in and the wings are all that bad. They were a little salty; the skin was crunchy with some wings being a little overdone, but it was decent to say the least. The queso seasoning was definitely apparent in each bite. I think it would have been better if prepared as a dry rub, but that’s just my opinion. The spicy ranch dipping was very tangy with a slight bit of heat. I preferred the wings without the sauce or would have used their sauce packets instead; just wasn’t a fan of the wings and dipping sauce combination together.

Would I get them again? Probably not. They were decent, but I would go elsewhere for wings if I was in the mood for them.
