A lot of the MREs have the same type of bread so I knew to expect something Poptart shaped but the filling is always the wildcard.
Row, the resident seven year old, took a small bite, and followed it with a long pause. He finally reached the verdict that "It is okay." We talked a little bit about camping and asked if he would eat one if nothing else was available. He said yes, so that counts as a star for the review.
Red Ant, the resident four year old, is a harder judge on the MREs than anyone else. He took a small bite, and I do mean small, and said that it was too spicy. Now, spicy for him is black pepper on his fried eggs. Plus, I think he has learned that we don't really press him for a reason on why he doesn't like an MRE.
Sweetheart noticed a tangy smell before taking a small bite. She also commented on the small bits of real chicken and thought the sandwich was nicely filled. She also noted a slight chemical taste, she after all a "super taster." She did award it a star for the review.
I was impressed with the amount of meat that was included into the sandwich, but it would still take at least two sandwiches and a few sides to make it a meal. The bread had a nice moist texture as all the sandwiches have had in my past reviews. The BBQ sauce wasn't real spicy nor was it comparable to any others that I have tried. Maybe if Chef-boy-r-dee made a BBQ sauce, it would taste like this MRE. You'll have to try it yourself.
If I was to take two of these and a small bag of chips, it would make for a good lunch. This is probably one of the bigger filled sandwiches that I've tried, and it has a decent taste. The sauce can be described as a mild flavor with hints of honey and a smoky aftertaste.
