I Tried The Crazy Combo Of Chicken Tenders Dipped In Coke And Yeah, It's Worth The Sauce

Yes, you read that right. I tried dipping my chicken tenders in Coca-Cola and it was good! This crazy combo was inspired the girl at the U.S. Open who grabbed headlines. My first thought was, "How haven't I thought of this yet?" which, to my surprise, was not everyone else's reactions. I love chicken tenders and I love an icy Coke from McDonald's, so naturally, I was all over this.

As soon as I read the article I changed my dinner plans for the evening and tried to recruit some dinner guests:

Finally, someone I can count on.

I headed to McDonald's after work to pick up the goods. Then went home with my dinner for an evening of tenders, Coke, and some ranch just in case.

And then, when it came down to it, I got really nervous. I mean its one thing to say you're going to dip chicken into Coke, but the actual doing? That's crazy.

So there I was, chicken tender in hand, ready to dunk.

And I went for it! Here's the need to know info:


The first dunk I didn't let it sit in the Coke for that long so it basically tasted like cold, fizzy chicken. Almost like if the chicken tender was dipped in pop rocks and then the tender was in the fridge for a little bit. The second dunk I let the chicken soak up more of the Coke flavor and that was key. It was like a sweet, sweet, coating on the crispy chicken. 10/10 recommend.

What I Learned For Next Time

I would suggest getting a coke for yourself (to drink) and a Coke for the tenders (to dunk). I was dipping into the same Coke I was drinking and that was a bad oversight on my part.

I would also ask for no ice in the Coke you are dipping in to keep the chicken from getting too cold.

This is not something I would necessarily get every time I go to McDonald's. I can 100% guarantee you the next time I get home from a Saturday night out, this will be my go to. And, no matter how good this tastes, I will never have the courage to eat it in public, props to you U.S. Open fan, you are everything I wish I could be.

Chicken tenders and Coke sound too crazy for you? I will recommend dunking your nuggets in a frosty or McFlurry instead, thank me later.

TikTok Made Me Buy It: Flawless's Skincare Fridge

I bought and tested one of TikTok's popular products so you don't have to.


I spend a lot of time on TikTok and I never know whether the products I see are worth it or not, especially when I'm looking at the price. For Christmas, my aunt got me a gift card to Ulta. I didn't know what to buy. I have way too many palettes and lipsticks. I have my essentials. What else could I need? Then it hit me that I saw a lot of people these past few months showing off their skincare fridges. So, the second I thought of it I went on the Ulta app and bought it. So, here are my thoughts.

I Asked Instagram How 2020 Was, And Maybe It Wasn't The Worst Year Ever

2020 is a year to remember but it's not as bad as we made it out to be.


It's finally 2021 and we're honestly all just happy that 2020 is over. I decided to ask my Instagram followers how they felt about 2020 and the results were a little more mixed up than expected.

Ever since I watched "How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days," I've been a major Matthew McConaughey fan. I've seen most of his movies, and I definitely got way too excited when he finally made an Instagram! So when he announced he would be releasing a memoir titled "Greenlights," I knew I absolutely had to get my hands on this book. And so did the rest of the world, as the book began to flood social media.

Truthfully, I would much rather read a fiction book and dive into another world than read a nonfiction book - even if it is one of my favorite celebrities. But I had a feeling this book wouldn't disappoint or bore.
