I did a review of the plain Ch’King Sandwich yesterday and most of that review holds true here. The Deluxe version of the Ch’King sandwich simply adds lettuce, tomato and a different, sweet sauce. Oh and this is spicy since this is the spicy version. Otherwise, this is just as good as the plain Ch’King sandwich, except it has more condiments that go with it, which is nice.
The fast food chicken sandwich wars started with Chick-Fil-A and continue to rage on to this day. The newest salvo comes from Burger king in a new line of slightly higher end chicken sandwiches.
The most simple entry in this new line of chicken sandwiches is the plain Ch’King Sandwich. The sandwich simply contains a fried chicken patty with pickles and Burger King’s new Savory Sauce on a bun.
This was pretty good. The chicken is all white meat and while not dry, still not as moist as the Popeye’s or McDonald’s chicken sandwiches. The Savory Sauce they put on this doesn’t really have too much flavor to it. What is nice though the moisture it adds to the sandwich as I truly dislike how many of these new fast food chicken sandwiches come with no sauce, as that lacks flavor and moisture for the chicken patty which tends to be dry.
Overall, not a bad chicken sandwich. However, what matters is how this chicken sandwich compares to its competitors. I’d say that the Popeyes chicken sandwich is still my favorite fast food chicken sandwich with Shake Shack’s in the same class, but slightly worse. McDonald’s new chicken sandwich is second place. Wendy’s and Burger King probably tie for third. Chik-Fil-A is last (I know lots of people love Chik-Fil-A, however, I’ve had it multiple times and found the patty dry and the lack of any sauce other than what I added to be even drier).
I have no idea who Charli is or who this drink is referencing, but the Charli Cold Foam is delightful. It rivals Starbucks’ famous Frappuccino as a sweet, heavy, delicious cold drink that satisfies that need to drink something cold and eat a dessert at the same time.
The Charli cold is cold brewed coffee with three pumps of caramel, topped with the new sweet foam and cinnamon sugar. What is most distinctive to me was the cinnamon sugar. That alone elevates this drink above with how well the cinnamon meshes with the foam, the caramel and the cold brew.
Overall, this thing was great and is now my go to drink to get at Dunkin.’
I scored this a five out of ten because of how misleading this donut was. The matcha topped donut is a glazed donut topped with matcha powder. Matcha is basically finely ground green tea leaves. I don’t know what I was expecting, but this was just a glazed donut with flavorless green powder on top. It’s is unfortunate because I was expecting at least some green tea taste. There is no difference between Dunkin’s matcha topped glazed donut and a regular glazed donut in terms of taste. The donut left me disappointed because I wanted to try a green tea flavored donut. Sadly, I did not find that here. This is just a green colored gimmick.
