I realize many of you won’t care about Whataburger introducing their new Whatachick’n Bites this week because 90 percent of you don’t live within a reasonable driving distance from a Whataburger location. But I’m letting you know about it because I love driving my computer’s spell check mad by typing Whataburger and Whatachick’n. You should see all the red squiggly lines on my computer screen right now.
Whataburger’s Whatachick’n Bites are made using 100 percent all white-meat chicken breast that’s lightly breaded. Oh, if you’re wondering if they use pink slime, they don’t. The Whatachick’n Bites are offered in six or nine pieces. There’s also a 4-piece kids’ meal.
You can dip those Whatachick’n Bites in either Honey BBQ, Creamy Pepper, Ranch, Fat Free Ranch, Honey Mustard, or Creamy Gravy.
For some strange reason, the Whataburger website doesn’t list the nutritional facts for six or nine pieces, but it does for four pieces. Four Whatachick’n Bites have 240 calories, 8 grams of fat, 1 gram of saturated fat, 1,170 milligrams of sodium, 19 grams of carbohydrates, 1 gram of fiber, and 21 grams of protein.
Oh, the website also lists the nutrition facts for 18 pieces. I guess they do that just in case you find yourself in a Whatachick’n Bites eating contest. Eighteen pieces has 1,080 calories, 36 grams of fat, 4.5 grams of saturated fat, 5,265 milligrams of sodium, 86 grams of carbohydrates, 5 grams of fiber, and 95 grams of protein.
