        I'm sorry, but what happened? Moldy taste!
        Reviewed on September 16, 2023 by Kenny123 on
        These, and the Gluten Free Chicken Strips used to be my go to as I have celiac. I'm not sure if you've changed the recipe or quality control isn't there much but PLEASE. Someone please TASTE YOUR PRODUCTS. As soon as I take them out of the Oven or Air fryer I get whacked in the face with the smell of mold, then It tastes like mold as well. I've kept trying for months and these are expensive...I know I've wasted well over $80-$100 bucks in the past couple of months HOPING that there were just a couple of bad batches then having to just throw whole bags out , but I'm just starting to believe I'm going to have to find another brand.

        Seed Oils are Bad
        Reviewed on June 18, 2023 by CleanEater on
        These would be great if the oil you used weren't the absoulte worst one out there. You shouldn't use any seed oils, escpecially not canola! I know it's cheaper, but it's costing you customers...

        These were once my go to, but their recipe change has left these inedible. What were formerly flavorful good sized nuggets are now tasteless greasy little things that only vaguely resemble nuggets.

        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Very tasty snack, a little on dry side but nothing a dipping sauce can't fix( or a side salad). I have been a long time fan of Applegate so definitely will buy again.

        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received the Nuggets to try. I was amazed how great they were. The breading was well seasoned. The chicken had a great flavor-nothing like regular chicken. They were easy to prepare. The only downfall was that when I tried to eat them cold in my salad the breading was soggy.

        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] These chicken nuggets microwave quickly and deliciously. Other brands of nuggets get soggy when microwaving but these stay perfect. Only downside is the nuggets are a little on the small side.

        Can't tell that they're gluten free
        Reviewed on June 8, 2022 by lilmizzruby on
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was skeptical of gluten free items but I was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed these and even my nephews couldn't tell that they are gluten free. I haven't had nuggets in a long time, but these were pretty tasty. I think the only thing I noticed was that the breading was a bit fragile and didn't crisp up to what I would want it, but they are not bad for a quick little snack, especially for kids. I feel like the microwave method would be the last method I would use just because I prefer a slightly more crisp texture. They also note the preferred method is the oven, but I think you can also put it on the pan for a quick pan fry as long as you watch them. I like that the ingredients are minimal so there isn't too much added filler in there. I don't eat a gluten free diet, but I feel like if I grabbed these, I wouldnt mind them over regular nuggets. I think the only thing is that for a "family size" package, it was a bit on the smaller size for the price of it. But aside from that, I think they are worth a try. I feel like kids won't be able to tell the difference which is a plus, especially if they have any allergies to gluten.

        Great taste
        Reviewed on June 6, 2022 by Chere28 on
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My family never knew the difference. I try to eat gluten free as often as I can because it messes with my thyroid so when I was able to pick these up I jumped at the opportunity. These were super easy to make I cooked them in the air fryer because who wants a hot kitchen when it's already miserable outside. They didn't take long to cook and we all enjoyed them. I dip mine in a bbq ranch mix and my youngest uses ketchup and my oldest hot sauce. I can definitely say we will buy these again that way it something the entire family can enjoy together.
