Costco Product Review: Pinty's Crispy Chicken Wings

This is the first in a new series of Costco product review posts that I will write about. I figure that there are other people like me are curious about trying out various Costco products but don't always want to risk buying a large quantity of food that they end up hating, and have to force themselves to eat over the course of a month. As usual, with food it's somewhat personal but you can generally get most people to agree if some food item is good or bad.

Tastes Good, Disappointing Amount of Chicken Wings

The first thing I have to say up front is that opening up the box was a disappointing experience. The box reads 1.75kg, so you might expect 1.75kg of chicken wings...But you'd be wrong. With three different sauces in four packs, about 20% of the weight is just sauce. I'm sure most people like me, are buying this for the chicken wings with the sauce just an extra. The chicken wings are larger than what you might get with other brands though. You might literally only get 24 chicken wings (12 in each pack) in the entire box. So that was a let down for me. I ended up BBQ-ing them on a grill, and they did taste pretty good. Some were pretty thick and I had to throw them into the oven to be sure they were cooked properly. There are better deals out there, but these are fine if you are really in the mood for chicken wings.

  1. So True... especially about the weight of its contents. Pinty's really capitalizes on its weigh contents, ignoring the fact that a good portion of that weight is frozen sauce that you may very well have on hand.
