    I've got a burger king in the theatre at work, go there on my breaks and pick up the BLT Chicken salad. It's a large salad, chicken strips, bacon, tomatoes and cheese, I get it without the cheese. It comes with "light" zesty sauce, and it's :yum::yum::yum:, fills me up better than 2 whoppers and I feel a hell of a lot better after eating it. Best of all, $3.25.

    Anyone know how the mcdonalds or wendys salads taste? I'm in :love: with these things.

    lolol. i needed a snack for before lunch so i went to 7-11 and picked up this BumbleBee sensations sundried tomato & basil seasoned tuna medley with crackers. holy shit tasty. it was $1.69 which is cheap for this kind of thing considering the other brands sell for $2.29+. also, it has 200 cals and 20 grams of protein :cool: not too bad for a cutting snack

    The sundaes are much better than the salads too. So obviously, one would go with the ice cream as opposed to the "healthy" salad

    It's my lunch/dinner, and either that or $3.50 for two hamburgers. I'd pay $3.50 on a daily basis if it were available to me

    Which restaurant is that from? Where did you get the information from? Next time I'm gonna ask them to cut out the bacon and put more chicken strips.

    I was looking for that on the BK website this morning but couldn't find it...

    Looks like I'm gonna have to ditch the bacon too.

    Bacon only added 50 calories, 4g fat and 5g protein .. the chicken is where the fat came from .. fast food chicken is usually craptastic. I did use the balsamic vinigrette as dressing so it was a low fat dressing.

    Well that sucks. This is in Canada though, and in a movie theatre, I know they prepare their food a little differently but I can't imagine it'll be too far off from that. It still allows me to get a large salad, and is a little healthier than the hamburgers so I'm happy.

    We got 134 cases of BK salads refused here at work. Basically, its a box with all the ingrediants packaged seperately, about enough to make 30 individual salads.
    Wholesale price on them was like 4 bucks canadian a case. I can get as many as I wasnt for 2 bucks a case. I might take one home for supper, as lettuce is lettuce, as with the tomatoes, cucumber etc. Theres no dressing or chicken in the box, so im assuming they use the same shit chicken they put on the grilled chicken sandwich.
