I'm back, the AP tests are over, and I celebrated with a small brunch: A Snackdown!
Today's Snackdown was between two value menu chicken sandwiches, from Wendy's and from Burger King.

Many people have said the BK sandwich was dry and flavorless, so I wasn't expecting much, but it was very, very tasty. Mine looked just like this, but no lettuce. It's very true that the Wendy's Sandwich was much thicker, but this sandwich was very good. I liked the flavoring. It wasn't very spicy like the Wendy's regular spicy chicken sandwich, but it had spices to it, and flavored very well.
The Wendy's sandwich is clearly the best value and quality for its price. At 99 cents, the chicken patty is freaking huge and the bun is the softest and tastiest bun you could eat. The chicken breading is really good. I'm not sure what it is, but it's not greasy, and it might be panko crumbs. Regardless, it's good, and the chicken is very thick.

Unlike the Burger King, the Wendy's is definitely a real, whole piece of chicken, whereas BK is somewhat reconstituted. But I'm torn. Who will win this Snackdown? They're both amazing.
BURGER KING- 8/10
I have to judge this as a draw, though. However, the real winner would be if Wendy's put their amazing chicken in a spicy sandwich. GrubGrade is right. We need a 99 cent spicy chicken sandwich. It would be Jesus.
