My name is Bean and this is my blog. Hence the name. If you have comments or questions, just leave them in the comments area.
Work's been pretty hectic/busy for the past month or so. Today, I was feeling stressed and a tiny bit crazy in my brainhole, so I decided to head to DQ for a 6-piece chicken strip basket. For those of you who may not know, this is a drinkless combo-meal (ingenuis) that comes with 6 strips of chicken, fries, two peices of toast, and a tub of gravy (yes, gravy). It's great, and I highly reccomend it.
A DQ6PCSB will usually cause my spirits to rise - and today was no exception. It was delicious. But get this: THEY GAVE ME 7 STRIPS INSTEAD OF 6! Hell yes!
PS - It should be noted that since I noticed Lucky (thats what I call #7) late in the meal, my gravy was not partitioned properly. I allocated the portion sizes based on 6 - so Lucky had to meet his demise un-gravy-coated. But still... 7 STRIPS! No complaints here.

I remember the DQ Chicken Strip Basket quite fondly... I used to work at DQ back in the high school days as a cook and the chicken strip basket + small Butterfinger blizzard was my meal of choice while on break.... occasionally, I also added in one of our Double Cheeseburgers -- all nice and freshly cooked by yours truly... In any event, back then, there were only 4 chicken strips to a basket and I made sure to allocate enough gravy at the end for dipping in my Texas Toast.... good times, thanks for the trip down memory lane for me Bean

I've never had no chicken strip basket.
In fact, I can only remember eating non-ice cream at DQ one tim. I was probably 12-14 and playing summer league baseball. We were at a tournament near Marion, IN and our team went there between games. I ate a triple cheeseburger and then started on the mound in the next game.

I like the chicken strip basket, but I must admit that DQ gravy is trachy. I still eat it, but it's just like eating thick tasteless goo.

As a general rule I don't eat gravy. Which appears to be abnormal in southern IN, where everyone covers everything in gravy.

C1: Oh yeah, the toast was the first thing to get dipped. The remainder got divvied into sixths for the strips.
I can't say that DQ has th ebest food in general, but the strips basket is top notch. Not to mention the peanut butter-placenta blizzard!

Think I'm confused by the inclusion of toast with the meal. Don't get me wrong, I like toast, 'specially for moppin' up gravy with, maybe it's just cuz you don't see any other fast food joint offer toast as a side. We have a DQ here, may subscribe at lunchtime.

They offered (and may still do) something like the "Fiesta" chicken strip basket which I tried once, at an additional 30 sents.
This bought me some spices poured on the chicken, but came at the expense of french fries and instead they gave some colored corn chips with the same spices.
Corn chips != valid replacement for french fries, esp for additional cost.
I still am bitter at DQ for this.
