Special offer of 10 Chicken Rings for just $2.99 coincides with milestone
Starting this summer, customers in non-restaurant and restaurant markets alike can pick up their beloved Chicken Rings in freezer aisles of grocery and retail stores across the U.S.
COLUMBUS, Ohio, July 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- White Castle might be renowned for The Original Slider, but the 101-year-old family-owned business has also been satisfying cravings for a certain chicken side for nearly three decades — to the tune of 3 billion Chicken Rings sold since 1995. When placed end-to-end, the total Chicken Rings sold would stretch nearly 95,000 miles, or 3.8 times the circumference of Earth.
White Castle Chicken Rings, the fun, uniquely shaped, crispy all-white meat chicken, lightly breaded to perfection, are beloved both on their own and with one of three favorite dipping sauces — honey mustard, BBQ and ranch.
"This crave satisfaction milestone vividly illustrates something we've known for nearly three decades — Chicken Rings run circles around any nugget out there," said Jamie Richardson, vice president at White Castle. "To reach the 3-billion-sold milestone is an accomplishment the White Castle team takes significant pride in."
With the 3-billion-Chicken-Ring milestone in hand, White Castle now has its sights set on serving up its 4-billionth Chicken Ring. For a limited time only, it is offering the 10-piece Chicken Rings for $2.99 ($3.99 in Arizona, not available in New York or New Jersey). And for those who crave White Castle's signature bun, the new Bacon Ranch Chicken Ring Slider is made with two all-white meat chicken rings, crispy bacon, and zesty and creamy Hidden Valley® Original Ranch®. Customers can purchase two of these delicious sliders for only $3 at participating White Castles.
In a collaboration with Bellisio Foods, Inc., White Castle Chicken Rings are heading to freezer aisles. Packaged in a stand-up, resealable pouch, they're ready to satisfy every crave any time in the comforts of Cravers' homes.
