Rustlers Chicken Sandwich
Advantages: Good value
Disadvantages: Roll tasted a little cardboardy
This review is for "Rustlers Flame Grilled Chicken Sandwich", which is essentially a microwaveable chicken burger.
At the moment, this item is available in at least Tesco and Morrisons for the offer price of a pound, but normally retails for around 1.50 pounds. I've seen this in offers of two for a pound as well, so they are frequently available for good value prices.
The sell-by dates generally give you a couple of weeks from what I've seen, although this of course varies enormously. This doesn't seem to be a product that would freeze very well, and there is no mention that it can be frozen. The chicken sandwich should be refrigerated below 4 degrees celsius.
The item is only marked as being able to be cooked by microwave only, taking around a minute, or a little longer, depending on the strength of your microwave. It also includes a sachet of mayonnaise to put on you require.
The chicken in the sandwich made from 100% chicken breast and is flame grilled. The bread roll is seeded with sesame seeds. The packaging which it comes in lets you see the product from the outside, through the packaging.
Without repeating endlessly the nutritional elements from the back of the pack, the salient point is probably that this contains 365 calories and 16 grammes of fat. Just as an aside, it feels to me slightly irritating that the product weighs in at 150g, but the nutritional details are displayed per 100g only.
Onto the matter of taste, I was pleasantly surprised by this product. Inevitably microwaveable meals which are reheated like this are only ever going to be limited in their taste, but there appeared to be at least a nod towards quality, and the meat was entirely made from chicken breast and it tasted fine.
It was also nice to see a generous portion of mayonnaise, sometimes these products can come with very small sauce portions, and it couldn't have cost too much extra to provide a little more, so this was in this item's favour. The only complaint that I could make about taste is that the roll did taste a little bit like cardboard, but it was still more than edible.
So, in conclusion, I found this to be a reasonably good product, which for a pound is to me good value. Definitely a good product to have in the fridge for when you might want a quick snack, and for a pound, I'd have to rate this in a positive way! But, having said all of that, it's still not as good as KFC!
Summary: For the price, a good product
