OK, BK has these new chicken baguette sandwiches. I've now tried the Santa Fe twice and the Savory Mustard once.

I would like to report that the Savory Mustard was totally 'eh' - the mustard wasn't so savory, I could barely taste it. I was hoping for something with some real 'zing' to it, you know?

But the Santa Fe on the other hand was teh yum. It could use the spices kicked up a few notches, IMHO, but then, I'm a spice head. Still, it has a nice flavor. Probably the best fast food chicken sandwich I've had. In both cases the baguettes were very yummy - real crunchy crust, soft inside, and tasty. Surprisingly so.

Both sandwiches seem a bit small if you're used to the standard BK chicken sandwich on the long roll. I'm not sure if they really *are* less food or not, they're still a good size IMHO.

Also, important tip, the 'Toll House Cookie' on the menu means two gooey Nestle Toll House Cookies in a package. So if you order 'two cookies', as I did, you'll get two packages - or four cookies. Which is more than I really wanted. :-)

Wendy's spicy chicken sandiwch is pretty good, and actually kinda spicy sometimes...

Oddness with the Toll House Cookies, then again most of the chain fast food joints down here don't have 'em on the menu and if they did it'd be as single packs (like how Maccas does muffins & hash browns).

The only place that I've seen them is here at TAFE, in the main cafe, but as I know the recipe for 'em I make my own with M&M Minis's replacing the nuts (and get crited for when I make 12-20 tray fillers instead of a normal batch of 48). I get more requests for them than the chocolate marbled shortbread (read attempts at chocolate chip shortbread, Scottish-style) I sometimes produce.

Haven't tried the Mustard one; had the Santa Fe and enjoyed it - it was quite good, though I haven't had it since as it doesn't satisfy the "Want....Whopper...." urge that's usually the cause of my going to Burger King in the first place.

Sorry... couldn't resist

Note, I get about 25 points max per day on my Weight Watchers plan (the more you weigh the more points you get):

Santa Fe Fire-Grilled Chicken Baguette:
Calories: 350

So, unless the original chicken sandwich is 2X the quantity of those baugettes, then you're getting a much healthier meal :). 7 points is well within my lunch or dinner range. I'm excited to see something besides salads on a fast food menu that I can eat! By the way, those cookies are...
