Papa John’s Garlic Parmesan Wings are not good. They are about equally as not good as Domino’s wings. They have the same, mushy, gummy consistency that chicken wings have no business having. You can taste the length of time these things have been frozen.
In regards to the garlic parmesan flavor, you need to keep in mind that this is an oily, not creamy sauce. Buffalo Wild Wings has a similar sauce, but that is creamy. This sauce is just oil. It’s not great.
Overall, if you’re buying pizza from a fast food chain, skip the wings. They’re all mostly going to be trash.
I think the most surprising thing about this sauce is that it actually has a little heat to it. I don’t know if it’s the Jack cheese or peppers, but it’s there. The most confusing thing about this sauce is that even though it’s good, I’m not really sure what to put it on. It’s kind of redundant on pizza since there’s already cheese. It’s kind of a spicy Cheez Wiz… so I guess it would go best with something Philly Cheesesteak tasting.
Papa John’s Spicy Garlic Sauce is the improvement needed for the already popular garlic sauce. It’s got decent spice, which is something the original garlic sauce could always use more of. If given a choice, I’d choose this sauce almost all the time.
The primary reason I order Papa John’s is because of the dipping sauce. It is this small touch alone that distinguishes their pizza from other places (the pizzas also decent compared to other fast food chains). Garlic Sauce is their most popular, commonly gifted sauce. It’s a somewhat creamy garlic butter sauce. I don’t know if there is any butter in it. I’ve looked at the ingredients, and there’s some dairy, but I’m not sure they actually add butter. Whatever the case, this is a garlic butter sauce and goes fantastic with pizza. As long as they keep giving complimentary sauces, I’ll keep ordering.
The Papadia is literally a pizza folded in half. If you buy a papadia and unfold it, you will find that it is a literal pizza prepared in the exact same way as any other Papa John’s pizza. It’s a slightly smaller, thinner pizza, but still a pizza. I want to say that this is some form of deception, but what else do you expect from a fast food pizza place.
As for the taste… it tastes like any other pizza minus tomato sauce. You get a dipping sauce that comes with it. You should also keep in mind how soggy this thing can get. Because it’s a much thinner pizza folded in half, the oil from the cheese and other fillings soak through easier and leak out easier.
Overall, skip this thing and just a get a pizza. A papadia is just a small pizza folded in half. It actually tastes worse than your average pizza because of the smaller size and the fold.
