News: Burger King - New "Classic" Chick'N Crisp

After years of sporting a spicy version, Burger King finally plies a regular value-priced chicken sandwich, dubbing it the "Classic Chick'N Crisp" sandwich.

Like the spicy version, the new Classic (the irony is obvious but I point it out anyway) Chick'N Crisp comes with mayo and lettuce on a sesame seed bun with a seasoned, breaded chicken patty without a spicy kick. It is also part of Burger King's latest version of the Value Menu and carries a suggested retail of $1 (price and participation may vary).

I'm pretty surprised it took them this long to come out with this one; the Original Chicken Sandwich used to be the analog to McDonald's McChicken but since McDonald's made it into a smaller, value-priced option (and with value-priced chicken sandwiches becoming a fast food chain staple), Burger King clung to the Original Chicken Sandwich and didn't follow suit. Eventually, BK came out with a spicy value option but never a more mainstream version until now.

Better late than never I guess...

  1. I think BK may have changed their spicy chicken sandwich in conjunction with this. 

    The spicy chicken sandwich used to have the heat in the breading, as I recall.  The last one I had used a spicy sauce spread on the bun.  I wonder if the spicy and classic sandwiches use the same patty, but one with mayo and one with the hot sauce now.
