Burger King Spicy Chicken Sandwich

Purchased Price: $5.69*
Size: N/A
Purchased at: Burger King
Rating: 4 out of 10
Pros: Same size as Burger King’s Original Chicken Sandwich. Tastes fine and pretty much tastes like Burger King’s Original Chicken Sandwich with a teeny wittle spiciness. If you’re gradually trying to get used to spicy foods by taking baby steps, this would make a great first step. Can be purchased with the 2 for $5 Burger King promotion, which is probably the only time when it’s worth it.
Cons: Spicy specialists, heat heads, and burn bums will be disappointed with the level of heat the sandwich has. Cayenne and black pepper do not make a spicy chicken. Ugh…The promotional pics show green leafy lettuce, but we get pale iceberg lettuce. Should’ve used a spicy sauce instead of cooling mayo (they’ve got the Angry Whopper’s Angry sauce, so why not use it?). Way overpriced at $5.69. Overpriced at $4.69. Slightly overpriced at $3.99.

*Because I live on a rock in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, things are a bit pricier here. You’ll probably pay less than I did.

    So basically it’s a gateway Sandwhich to lead Dubba to more spicy foods?

  2. Tracy C. says:

    In California, the spicy chicken sandwich is on their pick 2 for $5 menu. I thought this sandwich was similar to the spicy McChicken from McDonalds.

  3. Pimousse says:

    Holy crap that is one expensive sandwich. I never liked the original, think the last time I ate one was in the 90s and it was a big “chicken” flavored sponge. Just chalk this up as one more reason to continue to avoid BK food.

  4. Alice says:

    Well, I mightbe interested. Does it taste like the chicken they had years ago? Back in the 90s my brother worked BK and we used to love it but it seems they went down hill. I hated the chicken change like the strips into nuggets.

    • rob says:

      Yeah those were the glory days of BK chicken products, the tenders they had back then were perfect. I guess the profit margin wasn’t high enough or they would never have stopped selling them.

  5. Echo710 says:

    That’s actually a good idea… substituting “angry sauce” for the mayo in order to add more heat to the sandwich.

    (I still doubt it would be worth the price though.)

  6. Rob says:

    I don’t which is more revolting. The sandwich itself, or that it costs almost $6 for a chicken sandwich at Burger King.
