Score: 7/10

McDonald’s has a lot of crispy chicken sandwiches and now they’ve come out with yet another. The New Crispy Chicken Sandwich is… amazing. It is damn good. I wanted to hate this thing, but it’s one of the best fast food chicken sandwiches out there.

You need to keep in mind that timing matters when it comes to food. How recently was it fried? Is it cold? Stuff like that has a big impact on taste. Your experience with the chicken sandwich may vary greatly from mine. But for me, this was amazing.

It wasn’t even that hot. It was slightly warm, but really juicy and really crispy. I wanted to get a spicy version, but the coupon I was using only allowed for the plain, which was still great. Even without sauce, I enjoyed this thing.

Overall, this is a great chicken sandwich. It’s priced in my area from around five to six dollars, which is about right when compared to competitors. It is on the same level as Popeye’s chicken sandwich in terms of taste, which is my favorite fast food chicken sandwich and a sandwich I place higher than Chil-Fil-A’s chicken sandwich. I’d buy this again, but only if I had a coupon lowering the price about one or two dollars.

Fast Food Review: Burger King Sweet & Sour Sauce

Score: 6.8/10

When I was younger, I remember trying Burger King’s sweet and sour sauce and hating it. It was a transparent, orange liquid that wasn’t very good. I don’t know how accurate my memory was or if they changed the recipe, but I tried the sauce again recently and it was actually pretty good.

Normally, most sweet and sour sauces are mostly water, sugar and vinegar. The distinguishing characteristic is what else they add to it. In Burger King’s sauce, the primary additional ingredient is pineapple. There’s also a little apricot, but there’s more pineapple. You can taste the sweetness the pineapple offers, but you wouldn’t know it unless you looked at the ingredients.

Overall, the sweet and sour sauce was pretty good, but McDonald’s still has the best fast food sweet and sour sauce in my opinion. I don’t know what the ingredients are in McDonald’s sweet and sour sauce, but the taste and the consistency are just more appealing to me.

Fast Food Review: Dunkin’ Donuts Beyond Sausage Breakfast Sandwich

Score: 6.5/10

Beyond Meat is a plant based meat substitute that pretty much tastes like low quality ground meat, which makes it the perfect substance to be used in fast food burgers or breakfast sandwiches. The meat at fast food places is generally already trash quality, so replacing with something that tastes like trash isn’t that big of a leap.

This Beyond Meat breakfast sandwich is egg, white cheddar and a Beyond Meat sausage patty on an English muffin. Sausage is the perfect place to use Beyond Meat since it’s just over spiced ground meat.

Overall, the sandwich was okay. All the ingredients were fine, but the Beyond Meat was noticeably worse than a sausage patty made of real meat. But that’s the price you pay to avoid meat and protect animals and your health and all the other reasons why people avoid eating meat.

This thing also wasn’t very cheap. It was somewhere between four to five dollars. I could go to the nearest deli and get the same sandwich for one to two dollars less. But again, this is price of being a vegetarian/vegan. Society has deemed that vegan/vegetarian products will cost a premium. Or maybe it’s just Dunkin’ products that cost a premium.

Fast Food Review: Dunkin’ Donuts Hot Macchiato

Details: More information can be found at https://www.dunkindonuts.com/en/menu/espresso-and-coffee/macchiato

Score: 6.8/10

As the official website states, Dunkin’s hot macchiato is basically a cup of milk with two shots of expresso. They let you get a complimentary flavor shot. I got mocha.

Overall, this was pretty good. It cost about four dollars though, which is a lot. Starbucks is more expensive, but this still a lot for what is mostly milk. I will say that this thing has an impressive amount of caffeine. The day that I purchased this I was in a rush and drank about half the cup at once. That was a mistake as it gave me the caffeine jitters, something I don’t normally get. So if you need a jolt of caffeine, a cup of this stuff will do the trick.

Fast Food Review: Papa John’s Cheese Sauce

Details: Official site is https://www.papajohns.com/

Score: 7/10

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.
