These are some of the butteriest crackers I’ve ever had. I know it says there is Yam in this, but I almost don’t taste it. They should just call these butter crackers. They’re pretty damn good.

Fast Food Sauce Review: Wendy’s Creamy Sriracha Sauce

This is basically a spicy mayo. What’s most surprising about this sauce is how much heat this thing has. It is surprisingly spicy. Maybe not that spicy to people who grew up eating spicy food, but it was for me.

Fast Food Sauce Review: Wendy’s S’Awesome Sauce

Score: 6/10

Wendy’s S’Awesome sauce is a lot like Burger King’s Zesty Sauce in that it combines a lot of different sauces into one sauce. It doesn’t taste remotely similar though. This sauce is mostly for their chicken tenders.

S’Awesome sauce tastes like the German variety of spiced ketchup, except with a more mayonnaise-y consistency. The primary flavor you get from this is the tomato paste/ketchup-y flavor. The spices help give it some heat, but it’s primarily a ketchup and mayo mixture.

Overall, it wasn’t amazing. I think I might even prefer regular ketchup over this because there’s just something about this sauce that makes me gag a little. I think it’s because the taste isn’t powerful enough. They should’ve added more heat or peppers because what I mostly get from this sauce is mild tomato with the heavy consistency of mayo, which is a little gag inducing.

Fast Food Sauce Review: Burger King’s Zesty Sauce

Score: 6.8/10

Burger King’s Zesty Sauce is probably the most unique sauce they have, at least in the United States. It’s also my favorite sauce here. Primarily meant for onion rings, the Zesty Sauce has a ton of ingredients that separate it from the sauces of its fast food competitors.

The primary ingredient in this is a horseradish sauce. Unlike Arby’s horseradish sauce, which is mostly just straight horseradish flavor, Zesty Sauce has tomato paste, eggs, lemon juice and spices. This stuff actually has a little spiciness to it, and I don’t mean that mustardy heat that you normally get from horseradish or wasabi.

Among all the sauces at Burger King, this one is my go to. It has the right mayonnaise-like consistency, but with the spice and additional flavors to make it interesting.

Soft Drink Review: NESQUIK Banana Strawberry Lowfat Milk

Score: 6/10

Nesquik is not a milk shake. It’s a flavored milk drink, loaded with enough chemicals and preservatives to make a dairy based product last for years.

The version I had was the banana strawberry flavor. It was okay. It certainly doesn’t taste fresh. It was a little like drinking flavored plastic.

Overall, this will never come close to replacing an actual, freshly made milkshake. It was all right for an overly artificial banana strawberry flavored milk drink.
