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.
