Spicy Crispy Chicken Sandwich from Burger King

I stopped by Burger King on my lunch, something I have found myself saying way more often than I should.  Generally I hit up Burger King once a year but I had to prove Adam's ratings and then I had to try their spicy chicken sandwich.  I'm here to talk about the latter.  I've mentioned on the podcast that I'm generally not a burger guy at fast food joints.  I (almost) always go with chicken, so I'm somewhat of an expert on chicken sandwiches.  So, I strolled through, ordered a Spicy Crispy Chicken Sandwich, got an order of the CHEESY tots, and then something else on the menu popped out at me.  The Oreo Cheesecake?  Sure, why not.  Let's complete the order.  I never get a drink because I drink water (so I can constitute eating 2,000 calories a meal) and it was just a hair under $10.

I eat the lack-of-cheese tots first out of courtesy and then get into my sandwich.  I got it with "all the fixins" as they say in the...wherever the hell they say that (which consisted of lettuce and tomato) but I will give BK props on this - they put Mayo on both sides of the sandwich.  Not done often but makes a big difference.  I appreciate that, King.  Overall, as far as the sandwich goes - it was good - but it was a spicy chicken sandwich.  Zero difference between this and the Wendy's Spicy Chicken Sandwich - which isn't necessarily bad, but I forgot I was trying something "new".  Overall, still gets a higher rating than a normal chicken sandwich for me, but nothing over the top.

P.S. check out the podcast for my gushing on the Oreo Cheesecake, which is a must and also there is a Twix cheesecake that I'll likely try, too.
