You’ve read the news. It’s a “sandwich” from KFC with no roll chicken breasts as bread sandwiching a couple slices of cheese and bacon. It looks delicious. It also looks like a heart attack.
The calories aren’t as high as I was expecting it would be (600 something) but the sodium is absolutely ridiculous at like 1300 mg or something. That is a LOT. Consider that the American Heart Association recommends no more than 1500 mg in a whole day. I suppose that’s the big problem people have with this sandwich.
Let’s get this out of the way now though: It is not healthy. It is not MEANT to be healthy. It’s fast food.
If you are going to ANY fast food place to eat healthy, you’re doing it wrong. And by it, I mean, eating, dieting, life… take your pick. All wrong.
Eating fast food isn’t about healthy (no matter how many salads they put on the menu). If you want healthy, plan your meals at home. Pack your lunches for work. Control yourself. PUT DOWN THE FORK.
These places making unhealthy things aren’t forcing you to eat them. So why get all “up in arms” at KFC or anywhere else for a sandwich they are just offering. Note… they are just OFFERING it, not mandating it. If you don’t have the self control to eat at these places with some level of moderation… well, you’re going to end up fat. Just don’t blame the establishments when you do. You’re dumb.
So how was the sandwich? Salty.
No, really… you could taste the sodium in it. I mean, it was good, but it just felt like it was slowly killing me with every bite – but at least I recognized and accepted that. Seriously though, this thing is actually tough to eat; both mentally and physically. You can taste the unhealthy in it, so your mind is trying to get you to just put it down and step away, but it is delicious, so it’s hard to do. On the other side, you can appreciate why sandwiches are served in rolls or on bread – so you have something to hold on to.. Ya, they put it in some little paper wrapper thing, but when it just came out from under the heat lamp, it’s quite warm.
Should you try one? Why not? One sandwich won’t kill you… right? Maybe it will, I don’t know. Just don’t hold me responsible if you go pig out on 4 or 5 of them and have a heart attack.
