All new folded egg, American cheese, a choice of sausage, ham, or bacon, and maple syrup sauce, sandwiched between two sliced of Cinnamon Swirl French Toast
The sweet and savory combination features a folded egg, American cheese, a choice of sausage, ham, or bacon, and maple syrup sauce, sandwiched between two sliced of Cinnamon Swirl French Toast.
The sister chains have teamed up with undefeated UFC Women’s champion, Ronda Rousey, to promote the new sandwich in a TV spot that will premiere nationally on August 31, 2015.
Pricing on the Cinnamon Swirl French Toast Breakfast Sandwich starts at $2.99 for just the sandwich and at $4.69 for a combo meal that also includes hash browns and a drink (prices may vary).
Some of you might remember when the sandwich was spotted in test last year here in Southern California.
I tried the new sandwich, as it is available in Phoenix, Arizona. If you don’t mind your sweet being mixed in with your savory, you won’t mind this. At first bite the maple syrup was a little over powering sweet, but the hint of spice in the sausage calmed the sweet down. I did not try it with ham or bacon.
This is NOT a sandwich for the kids or to be eaten on the go. It can get messy. You want to be in a sitting position or dine in.
Considering the price vs portion is airs on the side of overpriced. The french toast is smaller than the average bread slice. I expected it to be a larger portion. An average man can easily take down two, but mostlikly wouldn’t due to the sweetness. A side of milk would be advised.
Another shinning fact, the french toast itself seem to be prepared on a flattop. That deepfriend french toast stick texture and flavor was not present. Which is a plus.
Rating: (1= Never again, 10=Must Get) This is a solid 5. It’s an average fast food breakfast sandwich, could of been a 7 if the portion matched the cost.
