Tyson Day Starts Sausage Egg & Cheese Biscuit

Purchased Price: $6.49 (on sale)
Size: 4 sandwiches
Purchased at: Safeway
Rating: 4 out of 10
Pros: Better tasting than a bowl of corn flakes. In real life, it looks almost exactly like it does on its packaging. Faster to heat than other breakfast sandwiches, like Jimmy Dean and Special K (45-60 seconds faster). They’re simpler to heat too; just throw the sandwich pouch on to a microwaveable plate (other sandwiches have you wrap it in a paper towel first) and then throw into microwave.
Cons: Not the most flavorful way to start your day. Biscuit has an un-biscuity texture; it’s like a combination of a hamburger bun and buttermilk biscuit. Buttermilk biscuit also has an odd flavor. Yes, it’s a reduced fat sausage, but the sandwich still has 60 percent of your daily saturated fat and 37 percent of your daily fat. Sausage patty doesn’t have a lot of flavor. Eggs lack any butteriness. Not knowing Tyson produces more than chicken products.

NEWS: Tyson Makes Quesadillas For Those Too Lazy To Drive To A Taco Bell

Written by | October 13, 2010

Quesadilla are quite possibly the easiest Mexican dish to make. Grab a tortilla, throw it on a skillet, put some cheese on it, add some cooked chicken, let the cheese melt, fold over the tortilla and, voila, you now have a Taco Bell employee’s dexterity.

But Tyson wants to make quesadillas even easier with their microwaveable Any’tizers QuesaDippers.

Heck, Tyson wants it to be so easy that they even cut the quesadilla into wedges for you. Is there anything Tyson can’t do? Perhaps they could teach me how they’re able to effortlessly Chinese Finger Trap two words together to create words that will never find their way into a Webster’s Dictionary, like Any’tizers and QuesaDippers.

The Tyson Any’tizers QuesaDippers are filled with seasoned chicken and Monterey Jack cheese. They come in two varieties: Fajita Chicken with Cilantro Lime Salsa and Taco Seasoned Chicken with Zesty Garden Salsa.
