Popeyes® | Red Stick Chicken | Food Review! ⚜🍗🌶️

welcome to peep this out reviews with
Ian K stay frosty Popeyes is back to doing what they do best as a blast from the past makes a return appearance on their menu for 2018 and it’s none other
than their Red Stick chicken looking just as crispy just as fried as ever an
awesome looking coating on these chicken tenders for sure guys they look really
really great what this is is 100% white meat chicken four pieces of it actually
here that have actually been marinated in a cayenne Tabasco pepper marinade
sauce and then dropped into the fryer after being hand battered and they look
really really great nice and crispy and I got to say a really really nice amount
of coating on them for sure and of course as with all of the Popeyes promo
combos here we’ve got a side so I decided to go with the usual cajun fries
and of course the world-famous biscuit and for dipping I decided to go with my
favorite this time out and get some Mardi Gras mustard sauce this is always
the bomb I absolutely love it let’s see if this one delivers the flavor though
if it delivers the heat it’s supposed to have this is the returning red stick
chicken here at Popeyes let’s peep out this flavor so apparently Tabasco pepper farmers use a little red stick as a measurement for
the ripeness of Tabasco peppers before they decide to pick them and considering
the red tint that these appear to have right now I think we got a good batch
let’s dive in it’s the returning red stick chicken here at Popeyes and it’s
actually the first time I’m trying it here we go I’m not getting any heat oh wait typical
Popeyes fashion a little bit of a slow creep towards the end there but it’s
really nice and I got to admit guys I’m not really tasting anything different
from Popeyes that I haven’t had in the past before it’s got just the right
amount of sizzle nothing crazy hot but just enough to let you know that it’s
there but it’s very familiar but tasty still and the crunch is pretty awesome
mmm yeah the chicken is fairly juicy and it’s definitely chunky I really like how
the thickness is on point when you bite into this it’s always the same with
Popeyes and it’s really tasty if you take a look in between the coating and
the chicken itself you might be able to see a little bit of red there and that’s
obviously the marinade that they’re actually talking about with this red
stick chicken and of course the deep fried goodness as you can see is nice
and crispy guys just always on point and very very fresh really really delicious
but again familiar I mean Popeyes in the past has used cayenne they’ve used
Tabasco and some other versions you can definitely hit my playlist in the upper
right hand corner for display take a look at some of those reviews from the
past and I have to admit guys nothing bad about that it’s still very tasty but
again it’s just the same thing that I’ve always had really hmm still really good
though alright let’s go for a dip in some Mardi Gras mustard sauce real fast
this is always a favorite at least for me now I’m a huge fan of horsey sauce at
Arby’s and this is definitely reminiscent of that because of the
horseradish that’s in it and of course you’ve got the mustard that goes with
this as well really nice combo let’s go in I already know this is gonna be
awesome because I can smell it already mmm confirmed
awesomeness man that is so tasty mmm absolutely love the coating on this and
the fact that the sauce is so nice and thick with a lot of the spices on its
own which is really awesome but guys it’s that horseradish on top of it
adding a little bit more steam I should say as you’re probably sitting above me
right now to the actual Tabasco itself this is actually really tasty with it
mmm so good yeah I got a knock this one off mmm so so tasty so tasty so yeah not
too much else to say about this one there is a little bit more elevated heat
especially when you add the Mardi Gras mustard because of the
horseradish but otherwise same Popeyes that I already know guys like I said the
familiar taste is absolutely there the crunchy coating is absolutely there
they’re made super fresh right now as well and overall it’s just a very tasty
chicken tender as always and honestly who doesn’t like a nice juicy piece of
white meat chicken that’s hand battered and all the Louisiana goodness from
Popeyes and deep fried to crispy golden brown to begin with I mean it’s just
delicious right yeah I think so let’s finish this one out with another
close-up shot of that crispy goodness and as I swing the chicken around here
you can hopefully notice a little bit more of the red tinting right there in
the middle because I can see it on my end it really is noticeable in the
sunlight and I have to say guys the sizzle is decent on this one but again
very familiar but still just the crunchy chicken that you already know from
Popeyes with a new promo for 5 bucks not bad so let’s not beat around the bush
here because I think you know my opinion of this one based upon all the reviews
that I mentioned earlier that I’ve done here at Popeyes which again you guys can
find in the upper right hand corner for display right now there’s plenty to
choose from and I’m definitely glad to add this review to it so overall I’m
gonna have to give the returning Red Stick chicken here at Popeyes reviewed
for the very first time on my channel a very familiar 8 out of 10 and I can’t really go much above that strictly because guys
like I said it’s familiar it’s the same Popeyes that I reviewed a million times
in the past and I got to admit even though I’m using that Mardi Gras mustard
sauce with it it really does kick it up a notch it’s still that familiar taste
but still guys definitely recommended its tasty what could I say but hey
that’s just my opinion based upon trying this for the first time right now on
camera in front of all of you but what do you guys think overall drop some
comments down below if any of you’ve actually had this in the past how
different is it compared to some of the other flavors they may have done
previously and if it’s not any different to you do you still love it either way
drop those comments down below and definitely let me know and with that
this is Ian K closing out another episode of peep this out bringing you
brand new content every single week here on my channel so while you stay tuned for
that next review coming real soon in the meantime stay frosty alright now I know
this was new to me for review purposes but technically it wasn’t if you catch
my drift alright guys until next time I’ll talk to you soon
