Chicken rings? What on earth are chicken rings, and which part of the chicken do they come from?

^^^I saw that a while ago.....what are those and the Fish Nibblers?
Way back in the 60's as kids, our dad would only take us there occasionally because if it was late at night
and cold - it was a hang out for old homeless guys (can't speak for every area but that was the case
kind of close to our neighborhood).

I love(d) going to white castle years ago. You could get 4-5 sandwiches for a buck. Now each one will cost you like a buck o'nine plus tax. I can go to wendys or someplace and get a full sized burger for that price.

Good enough to make a movie about them
The next time I try the frozen White Castle, I'm going to put a small cup of water in with them while they cook. I think this will steam the bun really well!

i live minutes away from white castle, and I used to love there sliders, but the damage they did to my stomach, and to the bathroom, pretty much made me stop eating them.

Back when I was younger I could slam sacks of those, but eating even a few of them caused major gas, and it was no bueno.

So the next time you visit your uncle you can have a dozen.

I really almost hate to admit it, but I do like them.

''The success of White Castle led to numerous imitators. Restaurants copied the distinctive architecture of White Castle buildings, as well as created confusion for consumers by using a similar name. The first of these imitators in Wichita was Little Kastle. Many competitors created their names with a play on the White Castle name. Some restaurant chains just replaced the word "Castle" with their own word (Cabin, Cap, Clock, Crescent, Diamond, Dome, Fortress, Grille, House, Hut, Kitchen, Knight, Log, Manna, Mill, Palace, Plaza, Shop, Spot, Tavern, Tower, Turret, Wonder), while others chose to replace "White" with another (Blue, King's, Little, Magic, Modern, Prince's, Red, Royal, Silver). Some of the other imitators included Castle Blanca, Blue Beacon, Blue Bell, Blue Tower, Red Barn, Red Lantern and Klover Kastle. Despite all the competition, none of the competitors were able to match the success of White Castle.''

Once there were many White Castles in the northeast: New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania ... but most of them closed up in 1990's I'm told. There are still a few around. I understand one opened a few years ago near Allentown, PA.

They were 69 cents last weekend for the White Castle hamburger.
