Arby's Chicken Salad Sandwich-where's the chicken??

I've gotten this a few times. Got it again today, hoping I would find CHICKEN! I don't know how they can market this as a chicken salad sandwich, when I only found maybe 5 hunks of chicken on the entire thing. It was drenched in a mayo component, and had huge hunks of apple, as if the mayo drenched apple would trick me into thinking I was eating chicken. Never again...Curious if you've had similar experiences?

  1. The ingredients on their website are: Chicken, mayonnaise, grapes, pecans, celery, apples.

    So, I'm guessing that others have had that experience. Why did you continue to order it?

      I've had it 3 times. It tasted good the first time, so I've had it twice since. In my OP, I said never again, due to the lack of chicken. So, have you had it, ccbweb? I wanted to compare across regions.

    2. I'm in Ohio. I haven't had one lately, but when they first introduced them I thought they were some of the best fast food I'd ever eaten. While I liked all the fruit (I put pecans and grapes in my home version), I didn't notice any shortage of chicken either. Probably even the large fast food chains are getting squeezed by the latest energy/inflation crisis, though. They may be cutting back.

        Thanks, Emm. I was drawn to them at first for the same reasons as you.
