Review: Deep Fried Turkey Club from Arby’s

On the eve of the national release of the Venison Sandwich, I’m here reviewing this boring bird called turkey.  I guess I was sold on it being deep fried.  There’s a trio of new Deep Fried Turkey Sandwiches now available for a limited time only and I went for the Deep Fried Turkey Club for my review.  Arby’s describes their Deep Fried Turkey Club like this:

Turkey deep fried to perfection and nestled between pepper bacon, cheddar, tomato, lettuce, mayo, and other stuff that makes it a club. Available all November long, a time to reflect on the things you’re thankful for, like not having to deep fry a turkey on your own

Beyond the deep fried turkey, there’s nothing new being offered in the Deep Fried Turkey Club.  Not a knock against it, it’s still a club sandwich, and I like club sandwiches. … continue reading “Review: Deep Fried Turkey Club from Arby’s”

New Sourdough King from Burger King

Thanks to GrubGrade reader Dave for the news that his local Burger King in northeast Ohio has been offering the new Sourdough King since last week.  We’ll keep you posted if/when this goes national.

It’s available as a single or double patty – for $4.99 / $5.99 respectively. It’s a basic patty melt burger – tangy sauce (possibly the same as the Big King), two slices of American, onions,  and what is likely a Whopper patty.

Looks like they forgot to toast Dave’s bread.  Very different from the promo pic above.

Review: Spicy Chicken Nuggets from Burger King

We can all agree on the predictability of certain fast food products.  When there’s regular chicken nuggets, a spicy version will follow eventually (although still no spicy McNugget option in the States). With Burger King, their nuggets have gone through plenty of tweaked recipes over the years and their latest now has an option with some heat.  Introducing new Spicy Chicken Nuggets from Burger King.Burger King describes their new Spicy Chicken Nuggets like this:

Made with white meat, our bite-sized Spicy Chicken Nuggets are tender and juicy on the inside and crispy crunchy on the outside. Coated in a spicy homestyle breading, they are perfect for dipping in any of our delicious dipping sauces.

Let’s be honest, the main selling point of nuggets at Burger King is their on again, off again promotion of 10 nuggets for $1.49.  It’s a fast food value that is hard to pass up.  To promote new Spicy Chicken Nuggets, the 10 for $1.49 deal is currently active at participating BK locations. … continue reading “Review: Spicy Chicken Nuggets from Burger King”
