The bread-to-meat ratio was way off with the Stacked Grilled Cheese Burger. I'm not sure if the grilled cheese sandwich serving as the top bun was made only with American cheese, or if there was some type of cheese spread in there as well, but the cheese was so fully melted, it was molten, like a grilled cheese sandwich made with Velveeta. Seeing as I could barely taste the beef, I lost interest in everything below the sandwich and focused my attention solely on it instead. While it was a bit one-note, I'd still choose it over a standard burger.
“Ugh!” was my immediate response to the Exploding Cheesy Chicken, a fried chicken sandwich with mozzarella cheese sticks and “gooey white cheese sauce.” Between the dry-as-a-bone chicken filet, the rubbery mozzarella sticks, and the straight-up foul sauce, there was nowhere for this sandwich to go but directly down the garbage chute.
I thought things couldn”t get any worse than the chicken sandwich until I bit into one of the Loaded Chicken Nuggets, which are topped with bacon, ranch dressing, and two different cheese sauces. Wrong! These crisp little coin-shaped nuggets were so salty, I couldn”t get past one bite. My husband suffered the same fate. Good thing we had four large iced teas at our disposal. I”m not a nutrition expert, but considering the meal has 3,593 milligrams of sodium (over 1,200 more milligrams than the daily recommended amount according to The Mayo Clinic), I think it”s safe to say you probably shouldn”t eat this. Ever.
The late-night run meant the only room with enough light to take photos was the bathroom. Normally curious about anything I put within sniffing range, Pixel remained outside the door, wary, but completely disinterested in all four Munchie Meals. Smart cat.
