McDONALD’s – SWEET BBQ CHICKEN

14 Aug

UntitledThe full name of this sammich is the “Sweet BBQ Bacon Buttermilk Crispy Chicken” sammich.   That is one hell of a name.  I shortened it to …..

“Uh…can I get that BBQ chicken-wing-ding sammich?”

“Sorry…what you say?”

“Uh… can I get the crispy bacon with chicken BBQ sammich?”

“uhhhhh yeah…….sure.”

SHADDUP already and tell me how it tastes funny-jerk!

Okay, I can’t believe I am going to say this, but this is the BEST thing I have ever eaten at a Mickey D’s.    Yeah.  I said it.

You know I am not that big of fan of their food anymore – but this sammich has all the flavor and textures and just all-around-indulgence that you want from a fast food place.

I loved this damn sammich and I am not afraid to admit it!

FUNYUNS – STEAKHOUSE ONION

11 Aug

UntitledOkay….wow….I didn’t think it would happen.   I didn’t think that it was possible to make Funyuns any more awesomeR.  But they did.

They wents and didds it, yo!

These “Steakhouse Onion” are supposed to have a “Bloomin’ Onion” sorta taste to them I guess??  I don’t know – I don’t eats bloomin’ onions enough to know.

All I know is these things are AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!

It’s a fuller-body flavor all over those crunchy rings.   I am afraid to type this because it’s prolly a limited time thing…which means I will love them…and they will leave me…..just like prom night.

Go check them out and report back!

WHOLEY CHEESE CRACKERS

10 Aug

UntitledOkay these are fun and highly snackable.  Nice crunch and the label don’t lie…it’s a mild cheddar flavor.

These are made by Snyder’s, which is known for pretzels, so it’s cool to see them branching out and making other snacky-snacks.

These are super-new and I have only seen them at Kroger so far —- so snatch these and snack-up…and report back your thoughts!

 

WING RUN – FIERY WINGS

9 Aug

UntitledI have made NO BONES about how much I love the wings from WING RUN.  The fact that they are inside Mazzio’s Pizza (which I also love) makes it a double-trouble restaurant.   Do I get pizza?  Do I get wings?

Answer is usually : yes.

So on my last visit -( this time, Tulsa OK) I was surprised to see they have some new flavors.  The one shown here is called “Fiery Wings”.

I have had “MACH FOUR” (their hottest) so I was curious about these.  I got some boneless and was ready to chow-down.

These have some good flavor – the heat creeps up…but it’s more of your basic buffalo style….that pepper and slight butter flavor.  The sauce was also super-thick too.  Almost like a paste over a sauce.   These are good and I would order them again – BUT….you know I love Lemon Pepper and Mach Four…so I would probably think to get those first.  My two faves!!!

 

BURGER KING – CHICKEN PARM SAMMICH

8 Aug

Untitled“We have sorta been here before…..”

That’s my thoughts as I am sitting here in the drive-thru at the BK.

A few years ago, they slapped some cheese and sauce on their oblong chicken sammich and called it done.

It was barely okay.  Just barely.  This looks like a revamp and serious attempt at a proper chicken parm sammich.

UntitledDid I mention I love chicken parm sammiches???  Cause I totally do.

I have been a big fan of BK for so long…I want them to have a win….and I say that because I have been less than impressed with them for the last several years.

That being said, this is probably the best item I have had at a BK in years.    The bun is soft, the sauce is tangy, the two cheeses bring texture and flavor, and the chicken is crispy and crunchy.   It’s a great little sammich.

And that is what bothers me.   It feels like it doesn’t live up to the $5 dollar price tag.  At $4 I would love it.   But it’s smaller than a whopper and feels like I am spending alot on a little.    Still good tho.   Check it out and report back below!

TOM’S NACHO RINGS

4 Aug

UntitledTom got something here with these ring things.

Okay imagine the texture of FUNYUNS…..

….but they nacho flavored instead of onion….

…yeah baby….you got Tom’s Nacho Rings.

These things are HIGHLY addictive, YO!

Found them at my local QT.

LITTLE CAESARS EXTRA MOST BESTEST

3 Aug

UntitledOkay first of all I love the name.   Caesar talks like me.  We could be mates.   Pizza. Pizza.

The concept is simple.  It’s….wait…

…it tells you on the box…duh.

So yeah – the most cheese and the most pepperoni for six bucks.   I have always been a fan of LC….their square pizzas mainly…but I like round too…

UntitledThe first thing I noticed was the crust is thicker than normal.  I am sure this is to handle the weight of all that extra cheese and meat.

I really liked the thicker crust.  This pizza has some serious HEFT to it.   It’s solid and filling.   It’s also twice as greasy as their regular pie…..as you can see …there was so much grease that it soaked through the box and was actually seeping into my car seat…..

…..but DAMN this pie was AWESOME!!!!!  The extra REALLY sets it off.   Get a side of CRAZY SAUCE to go with and you got one hell of a pizza night.

They TOTALLY need to keep this on the menu.   Or at least in the rotation of specials.   DEFINITELY worth it.
