LunchBox Kickin’ Chicken Cheddar Sandwiches Review

LunchBox Kickin' Chicken Cheddar Sandwiches

Sandwiches are a great simple lunch option, and we really don’t review enough non-breakfast sandwiches here at Freezer Meal Frenzy. Frozen sandwiches are certainly not the most common type of frozen food, but there are definitely frozen sandwich options out there if you look hard enough.

For example, LaunchBox has a whole line of mini sandwiches that you can keep tucked away in your freezer. We’ve already tried their turkey option, and today we’re checking out the LaunchBox Kickin’ Chicken Cheddar Sandwiches to see what they’re all about.

Now, these come four in a box, and each sandwich is individually sealed in a little packet.

As we pointed out in our previous LaunchBox review, these are made to be a school lunch item for your kids, so we think the brightly colored packet makes these a bit more fun. Your kids might appreciate that, or maybe they won’t — we don’t know your kids, so we can’t say for certain. But in our opinion, these seem like they’d be fun for kids.

Anyway…

These are simple to prepare. Just take one out and throw it into a lunchbox. The package says to let these thaw for about three hours before eating one, but we’ve found that to be not quite enough time. After three hours, ours are usually still a little bit frozen in the center.

Once your sandwich is thawed, you’ll see that it’s a pretty simple little deal. There’s a thin hunk of chicken meat and a slice of cheddar cheese pressed between two pieces of wheat bread. There are no condiments here.

The bread is where we have the biggest problem. While it’s supposed to be a wheat bread, it tastes like a white bread to us. There’s no real flavor to it. Perhaps this is designed as a sneaky way to get kids to eat wheat bread, but we think an actual wheat bread would be better here. Then again, we’re adults, and we have adult tastes in bread.

Our bread was also stale this time around. That wasn’t a problem with the turkey sandwiches, but it was definitely a problem here. The outer shell has that stale crispiness that bread gets when it sits out too long.

The meat and cheese are both pretty nondescript, to be honest. While the chicken-and-cheddar combo works well enough, it does kind of seem like it’s missing something. We added some mayo to ours and that actually made it a lot better (this trick worked for the turkey version as well).

One sandwich has only 130 calories and 300 mg of sodium, but keep in mind that a single sandwich is more of a snack than a full lunch. Even if your child typically has a small appetite, these sandwiches really don’t provide a filling meal. You might want to pack some fruit and a yogurt with one of these sandwiches, if you’re packing a lunch for your kids.

The LaunchBox Kickin’ Chicken Cheddar Sandwiches aren’t amazing, but if you can get a batch that isn’t stale, they’re halfway decent. Of course, that’s a big if, and since these are a little bit pricey, you might not be willing to take that gamble.
