As many fast food fans know, Domino’s released the newest fast-food monstrosity invention yesterday: Specialty Chicken, essentially a pizza/chicken nugget hybrid involving a crust-like layer of breaded bird “covered in toppings, sauces, and cheeses.” 

So how special does it taste? We had two versions delivered to the Washingtonian office: the “classic hot Buffalo” topped with spicy sauce, ranch, and cheeses; and the “spicy jalapeño pineapple,” a Hawaiian-esque blend of mango-habanero sauce, jalapeños, cheddar, and pineapple. The fact that two taste-testers immediately sought out mouthwash afterward speaks to the new food’s campaign motto—“failure is an option”—but there were also a few big fans. Below you’ll find the best reactions to the new food. KFC chicken corsage, you may have some competition.

Its health value:

“God, it’s all sugar.”

Its success as a junk food:

“These are everything I could want them to be. I could eat them every week.”

Its taste:

“It doesn’t taste like pizza, but it doesn’t taste like chicken, either.”

Its target audience:

“My kids would love this! Who wouldn’t love chicken nugget pizza?”

Its texture:

“It’s really soggy.”

Its smell:

“It smells like ranch, but not the good kind.”

Its texture again:

“They’re kind of … bouncy.”

Its culinary doppelgänger:

“It looks like fish en brochette, but it doesn’t smell like fish en brochette.”
