Review on BJ’s Brand Chicken Nuggets, Popcorn Chicken and Honey BBQ Chicken Bites

Get ready BJ’s members or those thinking about becoming a BJ’s member because BJ’s has a brand new line of Chicken nuggets. If you’ve shopped at BJ’s Wholesale club for any amount of time, you’ve come across one of their exclusive brands called Wellsley Farms.

This brand comes with a nice 100% money-back guarantee. In our latest BJ’s member savings booklet there was an ad for the new Wellsley Farms Chicken nuggets.

This is the first time in over 14 years of being a BJ’s member I’ve seen their brand nuggets.
Today I want to share a review on the three new bags of frozen chicken available to BJ’s members.

Does BJ's have chicken nuggets?

BJ's does have other brands of chicken nuggets as well as their own brand of chicken nuggets. At our local BJ's Wholesale Club, you will find Tyson Chicken Nuggets, Yummy Dino Nuggets, Perdue Breaded Nuggets, and a couple of varieties of meatless nuggets.

I hope you read through the whole review because one of these items was so bad it was my first time taking a food item back and getting my money back.

Based on past experiences at BJ's they will be offering some of these new chicken nuggets as samples, and if they do I, would love to hear your thoughts in the comment section at the end of this post.

BJ's chicken nuggets review

BJ's has a few different types of frozen chicken available, Dino Nuggets, Tyson Nuggets, Wellsley Farms Popcorn Chicken, Wellsley Farms Chicken Nuggets and Wellsley Farms Honey BBQ Chicken Bites.

I decided to try the three new Wellsley Farms Frozen Chicken items so I could give an honest review to fellow shoppers. All three were easy to cook, coming out of the air fryer crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside.

We followed the directions on the back of each package for air fryer settings. I set the Ninja Foodi temp to 360 degrees. Each one took about 8 minutes to cook.

The Wellsley Farms Honey Barbeque Chicken Bites were my personal favorite as they had great flavor and the perfect amount of spices. There was a bit more breading then I would prefer.

The Popcorn Chicken was also good, but I found it slightly spicy in the pepper department compared to the chicken bites.

Wellsley Farms Honey BBQ Chicken Bites

The Wellsley Farms Chicken Nuggets were my least favorite as they were disgusting. There is no other way to describe the rubbery gooey meat inside. The outside was misleading, as you can see in the images, because it's nice and crispy looking.

Inside was an utter disappointment. My girls thought the same thing. Even my little chicken nugget lover took only one bite and was done. The BJ's brand chicken nuggets are $13.99, while Perdue is $13.49. I would take the Perdue ones daily over the BJ's brand nuggets.

More Reviews:

We did end up trying the BJ's brand chicken nuggets in the microwave to see if it changed the texture of the meat, and it was even worse. I do not recommend these nuggets to anyone.

They are that bad. We compared the nuggets to the Aldi brand, and there wasn't even a comparison that Aldi went 100% and beyond for taste. I probably wouldn't buy any of these again because I find other brands much better.

The Best Frozen Chicken nuggets are the Sam's Club brand. They taste the closest to Chick Fil A's. Suppose you like Chick Fil A. In my opinion, the other best brand of chicken nuggets is Perdue. Perdue Chicken breast nuggets are found at most retailers.

I probably wouldn't buy any of these again because I find other brands much better. The Sam's Club brand chicken is way better.

The Wellsley Farms Chicken nuggets were the first ones we tried, and the girls said on the next two, “At least these ones look like real chicken.” The Dyno nuggets are even better than the BJ's brand chicken nuggets.

The BJ's chicken nuggets were the item I brought back to my local club for my $13.99 refund.

What's the Cost Breakdown for BJ's Chicken nuggets?

  • Wellsley Farms Popcorn Chicken, 3.5 lbs. $15.99

  • Wellsley Farms Boneless Buffalo Chicken Bites, 3.5 lbs $17.99This is another new item, but we didn't try it.

I recommend the Wellsley Farms Boneless Honey BBQ Bites and Popcorn Chicken, but not the Wellsley Farms Chicken Nuggets.

Check out the video below of all three of us taste-testing these items.

Are Dino Nuggets Healthy?

Are Yummy Dino Chicken Nuggets healthy? Healthy chicken nuggets are a great source of protein. Chicken nuggets usually have around 19 grams of protein in them.

Protein is essential for our bodies because it helps us to build and repair muscle tissue, hair, and nails. It’s also an essential part of enzymes and hormones.

The calories in chicken nuggets can vary depending on the brand. The sodium levels are typically high in chicken nuggets. The type of oil the nuggets are fried in also plays a factor in the nutritional value.

So, are chicken nuggets healthy? Yes and no. Chicken nuggets can be part of a healthy diet if they’re not fried and not covered in a lot of sauces.

When fried chicken nuggets, they absorb oil and become higher in fat. And, when they’re covered in many sauces, they can be high in sugar and calories.

If you’re looking for a healthier option, we recommend the grilled chicken options at BJ's. They’re just as delicious as their fried counterparts but a healthier option.

BJ’s newest chicken nuggets are an exclusive brand you can only find at BJ’s Wholesale Clubs. If you haven’t tried them yet, now is the time!

Head to your nearest club and pick up a bag (or two) today. And if you’re not already a member, sign up today – it’s $25 to join.

Remember, if you aren't 100% satisfied, you can return these to your local BJ's. Not sure about how to return items to BJ's Wholesale Club? We got you covered in this article!
