We’re chowing down on Subway’s crispy “chicken” sandwich!

Man, when I heard that Subway’s chicken was only 53.6 per cent actual chicken, I never wanted to eat there again. Especially since the main ingredient in their “chicken” was soy. Dude, I wouldn’t eat a soy sandwich if it was covered in deep-fried jalapenos and smothered in smoky barbecue sauce, son! But then I heard that Subway was serving up a crispy chicken sandwich, so you know I had to try it—this is body by crispy chicken, bro!

OK, now let’s break it down. You’ve got a tasty mixture of rib meat and water, a nice kick from the corn syrup, some tangy vinegar powder, corn starch and tapioca. Just a bit of sweetness from the brown sugar, a touch of salt, dextrose, garlic powder and onion powder. And then there’s the chicken-type flavour, made from corn gluten, yeast extract and preservatives. Dude, I would eat that stuff off a flip-flop!

At the end of the day, this basically tastes more or less the same as the crispy chicken sandwich Mr. Sub’s been serving up for years…except that Mr. Sub has slightly better bread. Oh, and mushrooms. Mushrooms are TheBomb.ca, bro!!!!

 

 

This must be the unhealthiest meal in Tim Hortons history!

Now, I don’t normally eat at Tim Hortons, dude. If I want a soup and a sandwich…I just go to Panera Bread, bro! But lately, Timmy Ho’s has a whole new menu, and they’re serving up some real-deal comfort food that’s both delicious and unnutritious! So here’s the move—Crispy Chicken Sandwich, served club style with cheese and bacon, a side of Loaded Potato Wedges and a new Churro Donut for dessert!

Now, I gotta say, this chicken burger is better than anything I’ve had at McDonald’s or Wendy’s lately. The chicken is super crispy, the bun is nice and soft, the bacon is not too chewy…and they actually use real cheddar cheese, bro! I don’t think Mickey D’s has ever done that, dude!

Now, Timmy’s apparently pissed some people off by giving away 4 million potato wedges instead of coffee in Roll Up the Rim—but who needs coffee when you can have potato, bro!? These fully loaded wedges come with chili and cheese on top—and this is body by chili and cheese, son! The chili actually absorbs nicely into the potato, but I think if they used some of that real cheddar cheese instead of this stringy white stuff, it would kick this dish up a notch, knowwhatImsayin?

Now, I gotta be honest, after consuming over 770 calories already, I almost didn’t have room for dessert. But you know I can’t say no to churros, bro! This looks kinda like a honey cruller, but they put a whole buncha powdered sugar on top, and then there’s caramel on the inside!!!??? Shut the back door!

Now, Timmy’s hasn’t put the loaded wedges or the churro donut up on its nutrition site yet, but if I add the unloaded wedges and a honey cruller to the crispy chicken club, I’m eating 1050 calories…so this was probably a few more. I might only need three fried chickens and a Coke for dinner instead of four!!!

I gotcha, hot Sriracha chicken sandwich!

Now, when it comes to hot sauce, my all-time favourite is Guy Fieri’s Buffalo NY Wing Sauce. But my second favourite is Sriracha. And at Wendy’s, only for a limited time, they’re stuffing all sorts of spicy sauce into their new Spicy Sriacha Chicken Sandwich. You’ve got Sriracha Jack cheese, a creamy Sriacha aioli…they even put Sriracha in the bun, son!

OK, let’s break it down. The chicken is hot and crispy, you’ve got a nice chew from the Applewood smoked bacon, and that Sriracha aioli adds a nice kick. And then they put spinach and red onions on top!? That’s so outta bounds, bro! Anyways, this sandwich ain’t gonna melt yer face off—I didn’t really get a lotta heat from the bun or the cheese—but it definitely has more flavour, and more kick that what you’d get at a fast-food joint, bro!

McDonald’s has finally found a suitable successor to the Crispy Chicken Sandwich

Man, even when I was a kid I wasn’t a huge Big Mac fan. I grew up on Chicken McNuggets, before I discovered the since discontinued Crispy Chicken Sandwich. That burger was TheBomb.ca, bro! You had breaded chicken, a whole buncha mayo, lettuce and tomato on a bakery bun. Dude, this is body by Crispy Chicken Sandwich!

But now they don’t make ‘em anymore. Every once in a while though, McDonald’s rolls out a premium chicken product for a limited time offer. I thought the CBO was only OK, but this new sandwich, the 12, is a 10 in my books, bro!

OK, let’s break it down. You start with a crispy chicken breast (you could get it grilled, but why bother, bro?) and add a tasty slice of Swiss cheese. Glop on some “Applewood seasoned sauce,” which is like tangy mayo with a kick, and toss some lettuce and tomato between a double-seeded bun. That’s right, this one’s got both poppy and sesame seeds, son! This deluxe chicken sandwich is about to make a merger with my piehole!

Can you say Merger, Merger, Chicken Burger?
