Once upon a time, BK regularly served up the Spicy Tendercrisp Chicken Sandwich. And, it was good. Heavily-breaded chicken breast, lettuce, tomato and some traffic cone-colored sauce all wedged into a doughy bun. The "spicy" was debatable, but it was definitely a flavorful, two-hand sandwich.
Then, it disappeared.
A short time later, BK introduced a "Spicy Chick'n Crisp" to their Value Menu. For the low, low price of $1.00, you get a reddish-orange piece of chicken with lettuce and mayo. The artificial coloring is supposed to remind the customer that "red" = "hot" and while the sandwich had a little spice, it was a scrawny, lightweight imitation of its chicken sandwich master.
So, with five full years shaved off of my life expectancy, my arteries and I are proud to announce that not only is the Spicy Tendercrisp back – it's better than ever! (See, Burger King – I should be writing your next ad campaign with material like that.)
This time around, the sandwich is given a better name (
And, it was good. Again!
