Sonic Custard Concrete Review: Banana & Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups

Today after lunch I decided to stop by my local Sonic to try one of their new Custard Concretes. These new deserts combine a smooth custard with some type of candy topping. Sonic has six different standard offerings, and I chose the Banana Custard Concrete with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

McDonald’s Signature Crafted Recipes: Pico Guacamole Burger

Good morning, afternoon, evening or night to all. Here we are again for another high quality review of a “high quality” sandwich. I must say, I’ve been looking forward to reviewing this bad boy for quite a few, days? Hours? Either way, when McDonald’s announced their new artisan sandwiches I was brimming with excitement. I was an enormous fan of the old Angus burgers that McDiddy dons used to sell, and I was happy to hear they were bringing that style of burger (more appropriately “sandwich” as chicken is an option) back to the table.

Taco Bell XXL Grilled Stuft Burrito

Welcome to Taco Bell, home of the over-sized quasi-Mexican food. On Episode 8, we tackle the not large, not extra-large, but XXL (also coincidentally your waste size if you decided to make this your go-to item) Grilled Stuft Burrito. Coming in at an XXL price of $4.59, this standard menu item promises to deliver mounds of seasoned beef, shredded three cheese blend, refried beans, Latin rice, reduced-fat sour cream, guacamole, avocado ranch, and pico-de-gallo.

McDonald’s Signature Crafted Recipes: Sweet BBQ Bacon

The Sweet BBQ Bacon sandwich is one of three new signature crafted recipes offered by McDonald’s, with the other two being the Maple Bacon Dijon and Pico Guacamole.  The sandwich can be ordered with either a 1/4 pound beef patty, crispy buttermilk chicken, or grilled chicken along with a choice of an artisan or sesame seed bun.  The cost at my local McDonald’s was $4.99 for just the sandwich and $6.99 for a combo meal featuring an order of medium fries and a large drink.  From May 4th until May 8th, the sandwich can be bought with a free order of medium fries and a drink at participating McDonald’s restaurants.  The Sweet BBQ Bacon sandwich features white cheddar cheese, smoked Applewood bacon, crispy onions, grilled sweet onions, and sweet onion barbecue sauce.

Hardee’s / Carl’s Jr. Baby Back Rib Burger Review

Hardee’s Baby Back Rib Burger is a hamburger featuring a topping of boneless baby back ribs along with Mississippi Honey Barbecue sauce, crispy onion straws, and dill pickle chips.  When I first heard that this burger was coming to Hardee’s, I was instantly excited by the prospect of tasting it and Hardee’s instantly shot up to the front of my list of lunch destinations.  The burger can come with a 1/4 pound patty or a 1/3 pound Thickburger patty.  The cost was $5.99/$6.99 for just the sandwich and $7.99/$8.99 for a small combo meal at my local Hardee’s.  I decided to make this a feast and went with the 1/3 pound Thickburger.

KFC Zinger Sandwich Review

IMG_20170420_150904395Ah yes, the KFC Zinger sandwich. I was pretty excited to try this to say the least. I walked into KFC last week hoping to try what had already been so unanimously praised, the Georgia Gold chicken (which is incredible by the way). As I entered, I was surprised to see that the Zinger Chicken Sandwich box available to order. If any of you remember, on episode 6 of the podcast we discussed KFC’s new Zinger sandwich would be debuting the following week, so I was taken by surprise when I saw it available for order on their menu, so of course, I had to get it. We also discussed on the podcast that it would be available as a $5 Fill-Up, but unfortunately, it was not. So I went with the Zinger Box, which came with mashed potatoes, potato wedges, a chicken leg (grilled, original or extra crispy), a drink, and of course, the Zinger sandwich. All for 8 bucks isn’t terrible, but still not as great of a deal as the $5 Fill-Up.

Burger King Steakhouse King Review

The Steakhouse name is something that has been seen on the Burger King menu on many occasions in the past, with the newest item in the line being the Steakhouse King released earlier this month.  This burger features two 1/4 patties which are identical to the ones used on the Whopper along with the bacon and A1 Steak Sauce that has been a staple in all past iterations of the Steakhouse item line.  Along with these, the Steakhouse King features two slices of American cheese, mayonnaise, and a modest helping of of crispy onion straws.  The burger costs $5.99 for just the sandwich and $7.99 for a small combo meal at my local Burger King.
