The FPT Tries: Frozen Dwight Yoakam's Chickin' Lickin's Chicken Fries

On a recent shopping excursion we came across these unique frozen chicken fries endorsed by Dwight Yoakam and made by Bakersfield Biscuits. There were two other items in this line - macaroni and cheese stuffed somethings and something else unusual - thats all we remember. Not a large portion here - but they were easy to microwave and while they easily passed our basic standards test, we would not give them a 5-star foodstuff rating. These scored a 3.5 out of 5. We include the price in this grading scale and at 99 cents as marked on the packaging - its a decent spent dollar. On a sidenote - we actually paid $1.29 for these from Walgreen's. We did not notice this until we had allready purchased them or we would have protested. One thing that really gets under the skin of the Fat Pride Times is truth in packaging. We will be doing an official complaint to the location these were purchased from.

GD, i looked for some Dwight yoakam endorsed food stuffs at the store the other day. I had heard things about these foods and wanted to try them. I had no luck finding any, never thought to try Wal Greens.

Please update us on the price issue. I would bet it is the fault of the store itself, if the box says 99 cents, the price IS 99 cents.

I wouldn't feed these to a Bakersfield chimp.

Wow 99 cents for a half a days calories? Yum. I just make sure that I take vitamins with this kind of stuff.
