Arby’s Market Fresh Pecan Chicken Salad Sandwich = Blahness in a Bun

Published May 15, 2012 - 2 Comments

Always on the lookout for another variation of my favourite lunchtime meal, I was quite interested in trying the reintroduced Arby’s Market Fresh Pecan Chicken Salad sandwich.  Well… Let me tell ya.. I’ve never been so disappointed with a chicken salad sandwich as I was after a single  bite of this thing.  At first glance the sandwich looks great.  It’s a good size, so you’re probably not going to be hungry once you’ve finished it. IF you finish it.

If you’re looking at it and thinking that it’s simply too fancy for my liking, let me remind you that Subway had a chicken salad sandwich a couple of summers ago that also included apple and raisins, and I loved it!  So much that I wrote Subway when they didn’t bring it back, telling them that they should!  So it’s not that this has chunks of apple and pecans… it’s just that everything about it tastes horrible… right from the honey wheat bread (which is standard on all Market Fresh sandwiches) to the grapes, pecan, apple, chicken salad… maybe it’s the mayonaise they use… I don’t know… There’s just something about it that isn’t very good.  I ate about a quarter of it, and then threw it in the garbage… and that is saying something!  Especially when the combo was over $9..

It’s really a shame because I wanted to enjoy the Market Fresh Pecan Chicken Salad Sandwich… but I’m going to have to stick with their roast beef.
