BKSpicy Crispy Jalapeno Chicken

A few months ago, BK rolled out a spicy version of its Crispy Chicken Sandwich, but our reviewer didn’t think it had any heat. That might not be the case with this version.

This spicy menu item features a white meat seasoned chicken filled that’s breaded with bold flavors and spices, thick-cut smoked bacon, pepper jack cheese, jalapenos, and a creamy green chili aioli on a toasted potato bun.

The sandwich has 760 calories, 45 grams of fat, 11 grams of saturated fat, 0 grams of trans fat, 95 milligrams of cholesterol, 1720 milligrams of sodium, 58 grams of carbohydrates, and 32 grams of protein.

If you’ve tried either one, let us know what you think of it in the comments.

The classic Taco Bell Cheesy Gordita Crunch has gotten an upgrade.

The Double Cheesy Gordita Crunch offers the same crunchy taco (with seasoned beef, spicy ranch sauce, lettuce, and cheese) snuggled in between a three-cheese blend and flatbread. But with the layer of cheese there’s a second helping of seasoned beef.

So, um, shouldn’t it be called the Double Beefy Cheesy Gordita Crunch?

If it alone isn’t enough to satisfy your hunger, it comes in a Double Cheesy Gordita Crunch Box that also includes two crunchy tacos and a medium drink for $5.

The Double Cheesy Gordita Crunch has 570 calories, 32 grams of fat, 12 grams of saturated fat, 1 gram of trans fat, 70 milligrams of cholesterol, 1110 milligrams of sodium, 44 grams of carbohydrates, 7 grams of fiber, 5 grams of sugar, and 25 grams of protein.

Apparently, Hershey’s is trying to turn August into Reese’s Outrageous Month or something.

Not only is there this new Krispy Kreme Reese’s Outrageous Doughnut, but Dairy Queen also rolled out a Reese’s Outragous Blizzard this month.
