In the UK, we can get wing portions in four sizes. Eight wings, 10 wings, 12 wings, or a Flavour Craver wing platter, which comes with 24 wings and three dips. US Wingstop, you can get your wings in 10, 15, ooh, 20, [grunts] 30! Hang on. And... 30. Not enough, you say? I agree. Wingstop also does wings in orders of... 50, [laughing] 75, and, of course, 100 chicken wings. I'm in heaven right now. Bury me in these wings. I'm going in. Eh, I could do better, but we gotta move on. Sean Evans, I'm coming for you, buddy. So, the portion sizes might be pretty different, but what about the wings themselves? We're gonna weigh 10 plain wings in the UK and do the same in the US to see how they match up. So, 10 plain wings in the UK came to 290 grams, which is an average of 29 grams per wing. Joe: Oh, way higher, dude. 360 grams. I needed my calculator app to determine what 360 divided by 10 is. And it is, in fact, 36 grams. - Wow! - So our average is 36 grams per wing here in the US. What about chicken tenders? Well, in the UK, those come in two portion sizes: as a portion of three or as a portion of five. At a Wingstop in the US, you can get your chicken tenders in orders of four, seven, 15, 20, and 30. Yes! I don't know what maniac is at a Wingstop and gets chicken tenders instead of wings. I mean, I get it if you're taking your, like, 10-year-old there. Let's weigh five chicken tenders here in the US. So, five plain tenders in the UK weighs 230 grams. 200 and what? Way over 300 on this one. We're over 300, and they try to pass this off as a tender. Bigger chunks of meat over here in the US. Bigger tender chunks of meat. What about a side of fries? Well, in the UK, these come in two sizes. Regular and large. And in the US, our Wingstop fries also come in two sizes. Regular and large. How do those look? Harry: We're gonna weigh them both to see what they come to. [laughing] That's not a good look for fries. How do I get this back in? Yep, also a brick. Also a brick. Harry: And the large portion came to 255 grams. Our regular is bigger than your large, UK. OK. Oh, lost a fry. 400 grams. Fountain drinks in the UK come in one size. It's 22 ounces. But, unfortunately, we weren't able to get one today. Wingstop in the US, you can get your fountain drinks in two sizes, 20 ounce and 32 ounce. The Wingstop we went to did not have any 32-ounce cups. Dips in the UK only come in one size, and it's regular. We're gonna weigh a cup of ranch to see how much we get. Dips in the US come in two sizes, regular and this absurd tub. Look at this. First we're gonna weigh this, the regular size. Now the big boy. I couldn't even guess how much this container weighs. Before I do this? Closer to 300. This is heavy. This is like a half a bottle of ranch. [laughing] Bro! It is 440. 440 grams of ranch. So, fun fact about me, I've never actually had ranch before. This is not a common dressing in the UK. It's just not really on menus. We prefer, like, a garlic mayonnaise or a ketchup. So I'm about to try my first-ever ranch. See how it goes. [chicken crunching] Hmm. OK. OK. I don't know if Wingstop ranch differs to the classic ranch you might find in the States, but it's nice. If you want, like, a kind of cooling thing with a similar effect to mayo in that regard, but, like, a little bit more tang, bit more seasoning. Yeah, you guys are doing it well. The biggest thing on the menu in the UK is this, the Flavour Craver wing platter. You get 24 wings, three dips, and no other sides. All for a price of 22.50 pounds. Biggest single menu item at the Wingstop in the US is this, the 100-wing party pack. OK, obviously you start with 100 wings. You can get up to six different flavors. I just got the same one. Four orders of large fries. Four orders of veggie sticks. And eight dips. This is supposed to feed 13 people. Or, like, you and three of your friends. You can get boneless or bone-in wings. If you go boneless it's $94.39, and if you go all bone-in wings it's $104.19. I gotta say, I'm generally a drums guy over a flats guy. I think it's just the shape is great. It's just like a meat lollipop. And also it feels like you get more meat on there than you do on a flat. No, Harry, no. Drums are not good. Flats are way better. You can pull out both bones. You get all the meat off of it. For the drum, it's way harder to get the meat off. Don't be deceived by that shape. It's less meat. Flats. Flats! I have a flat head. [funky music] Here is everything you will only find on the menu at a UK Wingstop. And here are all the exclusive items you can get at a US Wingstop. We'll start with the chicken. There's actually one flavor of wing that we can get that you guys can't, which is this one, it's Brazilian citrus pepper. I'm gonna try the Brazilian citrus pepper using my patented wing-eating technique. Get one of the bones out. And then a little meat lollipop. Mm. Nice little freshness from the citrus, kick from the pepper. Not bad. So, for exclusive wing flavors, you can get these two, the Bayou BBQ and the lemon hot. We can also get any Wingstop flavor on the side. I don't know if you can get that in the UK. Another thing you can do at the US Wingstop is you can customize your fries or you can get regular or extra seasoning. So I got an extra seasoning of a seasoning you guys don't have in the UK, which is the garlic Parmesan. Look at the seasoning on this. I mean, they just dusted this thing, right? You know exactly what I'm gonna do. Yeah, yeah! These are Louisiana Voodoo fries. They are topped with a cheese sauce, ranch, and Cajun seasoning. Our exclusive fry option is this. Sweet potato fries. These come in sizes of regular or large, and you can also get them in the same seasonings as the regular fries. In my opinion, you guys aren't missing out on much with these. I just always think that sweet potato fries are worse than regular fries. They always cost more, they always come out soggy. It's just not worth it. Just stay with the regular. Outside of meat and potato, you can also get Cajun fried corn. Am I saying that right? It's fried? You can also get freshly baked rolls. Bread, baby. Bread. We also have one other exclusive side, which is this. It's a honey mustard slaw. We can also get booze from our Wingstops. This comes in the form of two types of beer. And usually we would be able to get two types of wine, however, due to a reduced menu, currently they are not serving them. The three drink options you can get in the US are, oddly enough, sweetened and unsweetened tea. I don't know why we have tea and the UK does not. And also you can get this 52-fluid-ounce Simply Lemonade. And finally, in the UK, you can finish off your meal with some churros. These come in portions of either six or 10. You have two crumb options, including Oreo or Lotus Biscoff. And then you can choose from one of two sauces, either a sweet milk or some dulce de leche caramel. Mm. Delicious. What about desserts? Here's one you can get in the US and not in the UK at a Wingstop, the triple chocolate chunk brownie. Did I say that in the right order? Producer: Uh-huh. Joe: Fantastic. I'm now gonna do something really stupid, which is attempt to eat the hottest wing on the Wingstop menu, which is the Atomic wing. These come with gloves, just to avoid getting it on your skin and then getting it in your eyes. I'm not good with spice, one thing to note. Ah, man. I don't really want to do this, but, hey, for the content. Cheers. Yep, it's immediate. Oh, man.
