Arby’s Smokin’ Chipotle Chicken Sandwich Review

There it is...

This limited time sandwichis a hot deal! Usually, with ordering spicy flavors on food item, I find myself dissappointd, because it’s just ot hot enough. I have even ordered Arby’s japaneno poppers and though they were good, were not as hot as I hoped. ūüė¶ Well, this is not the casr for the “Smoking Chipotle Chicken Sandwich” Firstly, the presentation is¬†impressive. This sandwich looks¬†exceedingly¬†taste and delivers a hot¬†current¬†of savory chipotle and jalapeno spice into each bite. If you don’t like spicy flavors,¬†please¬†don’t try this. It is¬†clearly¬†not for you. Granted, I have tried spicier foods, and I’m not¬†trying¬†to say this is the world’s spiciest sandwich, but it offers rich chipotle spices, and smoking¬†jalapeno¬†peppers which offer a great change from the standard, boring “hot sauce” spice most places offer. ¬†(‘m sure some will disagree,which is fine) The tender all white meat chicken is filling in itself, but the fun part is the where the bacon and¬†jalapenos¬†peppers intersect. Bacon and cheese round out the spiciness and adds another great¬†dimension¬†of flavor. I have a very high tolerance for spicy food and found this to be a great item to eat. It wan’t¬†intolerable¬†spicy, but perfect to satisfy the inner fire needing to be fueled. I¬†enjoyed¬†this with a tall glass of iced peach green tea and fries.

Panera’s Strawberry and Cream Scone Review

I love variety¬†new flavors and scones so when I went cruising¬†Panera¬†Bread’s website and saw they had a few new items, I was pretty chipper. The one that caught my attention the most was the strawberries and cream flavored

Panera Bread's Strawberry and Cream Scone.

 scone.  Hmm.. Instantly, I wondered it the scone would be glazed, or have a biscuit colored, creamy texture with bits of the dehydrated strawberries, and occasional tastes of vanilly nuggets. I even wondered if there would be any detection of cream at all, just to make sure Panera was not tricking me into thinking cream was in the scone.  Having already tried and loved the orange scone, I knew this one had to be consumed and fast.

So I bought one with a¬†no ice, iced green tea.¬†That’s how I do it, so I can get every drop of my drink without th ice deception making it look like I have more than I actually do. Milking it is my middle name. So what? I’m a broke college student. ūüėČ The texture was about the texture of their orange scone-¬†rather hard but soft. Imagine eating¬†a donut stick by Little Debbie¬†this is exactly the consistency it has, and the glaze was a clear, sugary glaze that the donut stick has.¬† I was slightly disappointed, because I was expecting¬† thicker, opaque glaze similar to their orange scone glaze, but obviously in a vanillish¬†cream variety. The taste¬†was both refreshing as the strawberries gave a tanginess to¬†contrast the sweet glaze, almost buttery more so than creamy, however. I;d have to pass on this one, though it isn’t bad, it does nothing in competition with the beautiful orange scone.

Pros: I love the fact that the scone had real dried strawberries versus those little dried hard balls of fruit you get in jiffy muffin mixes. Bring on the realness!

Cons: The glaze is like a dried glaze you’d eat when eating a little Debbie¬†caked¬†donut. Twins??? Or rather, it’s three-sided¬†cousin from up North. Either way, they can very well be in the same family. May not be a bad thing if you don’t care. Also, strong buttery taste and a harder than normal scone texture. Perhaps, it’s the hardened glaze?

Yumfactor: About 3 tongues and a taste bud.
