  1. These are really tasty, I would forgo the cheese sauce to save a ton on calories/fat/carbs and eat them plain, little kick to them but nothing crazy. Texture is great. Cheese sauce isn’t bad with them but doesn’t add a lot for all the crap you’re also adding cal/fat/carb wise. Get a 12 pack and a diet at lunch and you’ll be fine.

    1. If the Taco Bell site is to be believed, the cheese is only a small part of the calories. Chips and Salsa is 180 calories, and salsa is almost a free food. Chips and Pico de Gallo are 170. So let’s split the difference and say about 175 for a serving of chips. Chips and Nacho Cheese Sauce is 220 calories. That means the cup of cheese is about 45 calories (which doesn’t seem right, but their site should be correct).

      So a six pack of just the nuggets is about 390 – 45 = 345 calories. x2, for your 12 pack is 690 calories. A lot for a lunch in general, but not awful for a fast food lunch.

      1. Pretty close (and clever sleuthing). It’s 55-60 for the cheese — if you use the TB nutrition calculator on the site, you can add the Naked Chicken Chips (6) and then remove the cheese, it gives you 330 cals. Maybe they give you a little more than for the chips. (There’s some rounding going on, though — the 12-piece w/o cheese is 670, meaning a 55 cal drop per cup.)

  2. I really enjoyed these. I got the box (it was the only thing I ate today, don’t judge), and the “chips” were crispy with great seasoning. I would barely call it heat, just spice. I’m not sure about the cheese. It seemed to add something at times, but not on other bites. They’re thin, but wide. The calorie count doesn’t lie — 330 on these to 260/270 on BK/McDs (not counting sauce), so you’re not getting shortchanged. (Just comparing 6-piecers for size; dollar for dollar, I love the value of BK’s 10-nugget deal.)

  3. You introduced a good thing.It is good for looking but till i taste it i cant say any thing about it more…. visit foodish.com for good fast food delivery
