Fast Food Review: Burger King Sweet & Sour Sauce

Details: More information can be found at https://www.bk.com/

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

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

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.

Fast Food Review: McDonald’s Big Mac

Score: 6.3/10

I recently had a Big Mac and I was just disappointed. I read somewhere that a cost cutting measure many business go through is to keep prices about the same and make serving sizes smaller. It seems like that’s what they did with the Big Mac.

From what I could tell, the Big Mac was noticeably smaller than Big Mac’s I’ve had before. Maybe if was just my imagination, but the quantity of food with this sandwich was unsatisfying.

As for taste, you’re pretty much getting a Big Mac if you like the taste of thousand island dressing. That’s what the secret sauce tastes like to me. If you don’t like thousand island dressing, there’s no reason to get a Big Mac.

Overall, I would not get a Big Mac unless there was a special deal for it. Last time I got one, I used a coupon for it and it cost me two dollars. Otherwise, I would never order it.
