Coming Soon to a McDonald's Near You: Chicken Wings?!

Will they be any match for Burger King's new French Fry Burger?

Starting in September, fast food ultra-mega-uber giant McDonald’s will be adding breaded, bone-in wings to its menus nationwide. The wings are fresh off a successful trial-run in Atlanta (because if you’re going to pitch wings, start in the South) and are a bid to keep the Golden Arches competitive with other fast-food upstarts like the Bacon Sundae or Glazed Donut Breakfast Sandwich.

The “Mighty Wings” will cost $4.99 for five, which makes them considerably pricier than their brothers in nugget form (you currently get 20 at the same price). This move comes at about the same time that Burger King announced its new $1 French Fry Burger.

The French Fry burger is a classic, value-menu burger with four French fries on top. Yes, four. So basically, if you bought a value burger for a dollar and asked your friend for a few of his or her fries, this is what you would end up with. Hopefully B.K. didn’t spend too much on R&D for this new idea.

What do you think of these new items? Are you ready to abandon the Colonel for Ronald's Fried Chicken? Let us know below!
