Post # 299 - Banquet - Crumby Chicken Nuggets

Dear Banquet,

I am a loyal and lifelong customer.  When it comes to parties, festive occasions, wakes, and everyday meals, I count on Banquet.  One might say that I'm 54% composed of Banquet Chicken.

When I decided to host a Super Bowl party, what was on the top of my shopping list?  Several guest suggested boneless buffalo wings from Buffalo Wild Wings.  One guest's wife works at Hooters, and could have gotten me the famous Hooter Wings at a discount.  I said, "Nope.  I'm a Banquet Man."

I purchased your 15 ounce chicken nuggets --delicious breaded nugget shaped chicken patties.  The serving size on the box is about five servings of six nuggets each.  Just enough for me and my five guests.

Except, when I opened the box, I found 24 nuggets and a VERY big pile of crumbs.  My guests grew hungry and left before halftime.  My party was labeled a dud.

What gives with all the crumbs?  Are crumbs cheaper than chicken?  Is that your game?  Short change the loyal customer to save a few pennies and make the stock rise a quarter point?  I'm very disappointed and discouraged.  I may just try one of those fancy chain restaurants with the busty female servers and the 86 different sauces.
