    I had a coupon for a free drink if you bought the three pack, they were all right almost too moist like they were injected with water, you can also get ranch dipping sauce. they were about 3/4 the size they showed on the commercial.

      Agree with the too moist assessment. Almost mushy, I thought, and the breading wasn't anywhere near as crisp as it ought to have been - there were parts on mine that almost seemed uncooked. They're ok, but I'd not rush out for them. The only thing they have going for them is they obviously are real chicken tenders and not processed chopped/formed pieces. My partner loved them, though, and she's a chicken strip fiend, but not a foodie.

        Also, don't expect them to look even remotely like those you have seen on TV or in photographs. Fast Food places do not cheap out when paying for photography and good photographers.
