Wendy's Is Giving Away Free Chicken Tenders Right Now

While I love Easter, Halloween and Christmas, some of my favorite holidays are actually the random national food days where my favorite restaurants give me free food.

So far in 2018, we've had national chocolate cake day, pizza day, margarita day, cheeseburger day, and ice cream day, to name a few.

Today, July 27, marks another special food day and this time we're celebrating the ultimate finger food: Chicken tenders.

Wendy's

To help you make the day even more special, Wendy's is giving out free chicken tenders!

But before you get too excited, there is a catch. You'll need to know the secret code to claim the free snack.

The fast-food chain was urging customers to keep an eye out on Twitter for the password, but lucky for you, we did that part so you don't have to.

While supplies last, head to your nearest participating Wendy's location and enjoy two complimentary pieces of chicken tender when you say the phrase "Winner, Winner Chicken Tender."

Unlike some of its competitors, Wendy's made $30 million in changes to their chicken so they can offer their customers menu items of the highest quality.

After McDonald's reintroduced their new Buttermilk Crispy Chicken Tenders, Wendy's decided to up the ante and serve their version of the classic finger food. They even added their own special sauce to accompany the tenders.

“We decided to raise the bar because customers deserve better-tasting and quality chicken,” said Kurt Kane, Wendy’s Chief Concept and Marketing Officer in a 2017 press release. “After two years of perfecting our new Chicken Tenders and Side of S’Awesome sauce, we knew we had a winner. The only thing left to do was provide these tenders at a price point that customers would love.”

It looks like the company made the right decision because people on the internet can't stop talking about how good their chicken tenders taste.

"@Wendys new chicken tenders are probably the best thing that has happened in my life all year," wrote one Twitte user. "Not even kidding."

Another tweet said, "@Wendys Just ate those chicken tenders and oh my are they amazing. Unlike a another certain fast food place."

So what're you waiting for? Hurry and get your tenders before they're all gone!
