And so it shall pass that today we debut the soft opening of a new feature to the website entitled “Holy Shit, This is Good (HSTIG).” As inspired by a catchphrase uttered by one Casey The Kasem on the CTB Show, HSTIG aims to spotlight a product or two or three or twenty three we whole heartedly endorse, with or without compensation (this product in particular, we ain’t being paid to endorse – BUT HEY ROYAL FARMS, WE’RE FOR SALE *WINK WINK*)
We already know that Royal Farms, headquartered in Hampden, United States, makes some damn fine fried chicken. Like, publications say it so it’s basically science which means it’s true. And I’m a total whore for chicky nuggies, chicky tendies, basically any fried chicken product that can be eaten in multiples of six and act as a vehicle for dipping sauce – I’m on board AF (that’s “As Fuck,” according to people younger than me).
But the problem is, most of these fried chicken products out there are charlatans when they claim they have a “spicy” version, which typically ranks somewhere even below Zesty on the spicyometer. It’s weak. It does not tingle the tongue.
Well spice faces, your day has come. As sampled on a recent CTB Show episode, we all tried Royal Farms’s’s brand new Spicy Chicken Tenders – a product NO ONE HAS COVERED YET IN LOCAL MEDIA – and Holy Shit, They Are Good. Tingly to the tongue. A very decent amount of heat that creeps up on you with every bite, to the point that you may need to space them out piece by piece. And in a refreshing turn, it’s not just “Buffalo” flavored, these things are packed with a cayenne and black pepper coating that will kick your uvula in its vulva and not apologize once. Hyperbole!
And hey look, they’re running a special!
(not paid to endorse this.)
The spicy tendies we sampled on the show were from the RoFo on 41st Street. Highly recommended. I subsequently sampled some out in Frederick, MD and they weren’t as spicy, but still spicy.
