    The title says it all. Are they good, and are they worth the money?

    Yes, chickenbackers are good, especially with biscuits, mashed potatoes and gravy. Oh, and carrots.

    I like the gravy, but, honestly, I could do without the biscuit.

    I only like the fair trade, cruelty free chickenbackers. The fast ones often have their wings clipped and the headstock cut off. :D

    Doesn't the Chickenbacker always get into huge fights with the Peter bass?

    I wish they made a decent 5-wing version.

    Once you taste one, everything else will taste like it.

    That's what they cost at Target. They're a little more at Costco, but you get 20 of them in a box.
