Today, I moseyed my way down to Burger King to check out what I thought would be a semi-decent dining experience. I saw this thing on TV and said, "Its a ham and cheese with fried chicken. How could they mess that up?" Well I found out, and boy they showed me. This is the Chicken Cordon Bleu from Burger King.
Honestly, the thing doesn't look terrible, at least when held to the standards of fast food. I mean sure, the ham dangling off the side of the sandwich invokes thoughts of loose flesh, but that's what you come to expect. The chicken actually looks nice and crispy, and the cheese seems to actually be melted all the way through. The bun looks nice, but almost too nice, like it was created in a lab or something. Side note: They need to figure out a better way of packaging their sandwiches up than wrapping it in that paper because the bun was essentially sweating when I got it. Overall meh looks.
Visual Score: 5/10
I know many of you probably think I'm exaggerating, but in all honesty, this thing is absolutely repugnant. I just don't understand who at headquarters tasted this final product and OK'd the release to the public. And it's really a simple fix: just change the sauce. My Lord. I mean the chicken is fine and the cheese is inoffensive. The ham could be better, but the sauce is absolutely fowl. It's obnoxiously sweet, and I have no idea why. I was so confused, in fact, I looked up what actual chicken cordon bleu is, and the sauce is supposed to be a mustard cream sauce. This, for some reason, is what Burger King calls a "zingy tomato sauce." Look Burger King, it's bad enough that you're bastardizing a pillar of French cuisine; the last thing I need you to do is start freewheelin' and changing the recipes, 'cause it's a God damned disaster.
Taste Score: 2/10
I couldn't finish this thing, so I cannot calculate my final score. I refused to take more than three bites of this thing, and wanted to fight another day. Cant give a body score because I didn't get enough down.
Body Score: N/A
Overall Score: 3.5 meatballs/10... For shame...
