Arby’s Chicken Salad Taste-Off *Giveaway*

As I have become more proactive in being healthier in anyway that I can, at some time or another, all of our families grab a bite of fast food. Sometimes, it’s hard to find the option that is best for eating healthy and you find yourself scrambling.arbystasteoff

Arby’s knows that people everywhere want to have healthier options that doesn’t sacrifice good taste. With Arby’s Market Fresh options, you can rest assured you can have a healthier fast food meal.

Arby’s latest creation is the Arby’s Grilled Chicken and Pecan Salad Sandwich, which also comes as a wrap. The Arby’s Market Fresh Chicken Salad brings a new variety to fast food.240140_595472677894_207303072_33030835_1847339_o

When we headed in to Arby’s, I noticed several individuals trying the Pecan Chicken Salad Wrap so I decided to give the sandwich a try.

Arby’s Chicken Salad Sandwich

Large chunks of grilled chicken, crunchy pecans, diced red apples, celery and juicy red grapes all blended together on whole grain flatbread or Arby’s Signature Honey Wheat Bread.

While I can admit firsthand, I am not a big fan of nuts, I loved how crisp the apples were and that hint of sweet grape. I did wish I had picked the wrap as the first few bites I didn’t quite get the chicken salad so I opened the sandwich out to spread it out more. It was definitely a sandwich for when you were hungry as the bread was hearty and thick.

Sometimes it’s okay to have that burger we all love but we all know that it can’t be an all the time thing, why it’s so awesome Arby’s has created what they have.

By heading to the Arby’s Facebook page, you can print a coupon yourself to try the Market Fresh Chicken Salad Sandwich FREE with the purchase of a 22 oz. drink! With the Taste-Off, Arby’s would also like you to try the Subway Orchard Chicken Salad and then vote for your favorite.

Subway’s Orchard Chicken Salad

The refreshing summery flavor of the Orchard Chicken Salad sub is back. With juicy, tender chicken, sweet apples, tangtastic cranberries and crunch-a-licious celery on your favorite freshly baked bread.

2011-05-19 12.19.29The Subway Chicken Salad is currently a $5 Footlong. My husband wanted to give this a try with me. While our Subway is known for letting their bread get a little “dry”, the salad had a bit of a sweeter flavor to it then the Arby’s sandwich but, I also assume this could be because of the ability to customize your sandwiches more at Subway.

By taking the time to vote at the Arby’s page, a dollar will be donated to support No Kid Hunger for every vote, no matter who you pick as the favorite.

  13. having healthy fast-food choices are important because of too many fat people

  14. Eating healthy is important to me because I am now over 40 and the weight is staying on so I need to be better at watching what I eat especially when dining out which we do often.

  15. Having healthy fast food choices is important to me because sometimes I’m out running everywhere and really need to eat… but not junk! Arby’s to the rescue!

  27. Healthy fast food choices are important because it is crucial for staying healthy. America has started to go backwards with this, and not teach us to be healthy and stay healthy. Americans are now around 34% obese because of this and if the majority of us copulate, we are doing a disservice to future human generations. We are passing down risks of obesity, higher disease and cancer to our future generations. This will have to be stopped at some point, when we see a decrease of our longevity. When we are healthier, we are happier, we feel better, and we look better. Why wouldn’t we want to be healthy? It’s not that most of us are trying to be unhealthy, it’s just that most of the foods that are unhealthy satisfy our taste buds, but not our bodies in general. The main point is to satisfy our bodies, and we wouldn’t need to satisfy our taste buds. It is better for all of us to be healthier overall.

  28. Healthy fastfood is important because i need food to be available easily but not so fattening that i will lose my health to my food choices.

  29. Right now its important because I’m trying to lose 15 pounds before we go on vacation in August! Thanks!

  30. Because I don’t always have time to cook dinner and like to have healthy options

  31. It’s nice to have healthy fast food choices because it’s definitely not easy to cook every meal at home. We are involved in a lot of activities and often have to get food on the go.

  32. Having healthy fast-food choices is important to me because I sometimes need to eat on the go but I still want to eat well.

  33. It is great to have healthier options when eating out because there is no excuses. If the option is available it is your choice to choose healthy or fattening. Thanks!

  34. It is important because there are many fast food chains in the USA that are tasty and quick but also fattening and all the grease and cholosterol that are in their foods can cause all kinds of health concerns like high blood pressure or even heart disease or heart attack so it nice to have a fast food restaurant that is healthy for us to enjoy and eat

  35. Having healthy fast food choices is important to me because my grandpa died because he never ate healthy and he had serious health problems. My family now tries to eat healthy because of that. I am also trying to lose some pounds here and there for a wedding coming up.
    Thanks! 🙂

  36. It’s important to have healthy fast food choices because I work in a mall and we aren’t allowed to leave the mall to get lunch so I have to choose between the fast food places for my everyday lunch/dinner.

  37. With all kinds of aches and pains, keeping myself healthy has become a very important objective..

  38. Its easier to eat healthier at home than on the go because fastfood usually isnt healthy. im so happy to now have more healthier options and no excuses.

  39. We are on the go a lot and it’s important to have those healthier options especially for my children.

  40. I need food that I can purchase quickly that is heart healthy, not loaded with fat and will not put me to sleep for the rest of the day.

  41. because i’ll only eat fast food if it’s healthy

  44. I’m working on losing weight, and I have a teen. I work full time and go to school full time, so time is not our friend. we eat out more often than I like to admit, so being able to quickly get something healthy is hard, but worthwhile.
