After changing the recipe of their Crispy Chicken Sandwich (review) earlier this year, Burger King has been focused on pushing their chicken sandwiches. Burger King’s current national advertising campaign is focused on promoting the Bacon Cheddar Ranch Crispy Chicken Sandwich. Although this item is not new, (here is a commercial featuring Darius Rucker singing about the sandwich from 2004) Burger King has been running a considerable number of advertisements for it so I decided to review the revamped version.
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.
McDonald’s has three new Signature Crafted sandwiches on their menu: Pico Guacamole, Sweet BBQ, and Maple Bacon Dijon . Options for protein are a quarter pound beef patty, grilled chicken, or buttermilk crispy chicken. You can also choose between sesame seed or artisan bun. At my local McDonald’s the cost of the sandwich was $5.29 and the medium combo cost $7.29.
I reviewed McDonald’s new Signature Crafted Maple Bacon Dijon grilled chicken sandwich on an artisan bun.
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.
