Hello everyone, this is Running On Empty …
ladies and gentlemen and everyone watching!
This is Running On Empty
I am your host TheReportOfTheWeek.
Halloween is such a fascinating holiday, you know?
I mean there’s there’s nothing else like it.
I know I did a lecture a few years ago where I was kind of I was bashing Halloween, you know?
I’ll say it outright – I wasn’t the biggest fan of it then. But, I’ve kind of
embraced it more so to speak or I might not be the type to go to Halloween parties and
“get plastered” as they say but I really do like the aesthetic of the holiday. I gotta…
I gotta get that off off the bat. I really do. I do like the lights and the decorations and all that.
I think it is quite quite interesting quite cool!
But man Halloween is is such a
fascinating fascinating thing right? Where people they get up at the break of dawn, you know, and
they go out they paint eggs.
They they get a little basket full of candy and and little kind of fake
plastic grass and they kind of put it in there. And then it all
culminates and reaches an absolute peak just before midnight right? Where the Easter Bunny comes over and is tapping on the window. And..
You know, not not that he actually has anything to contribute
he’s just kind of creeping around, but still. And you all just gather around and listen to the newly restored
English service for Radio Exterior De España on the shortwave radio.
Nothing beats it. That’s the honest truth.
But there is that creepy aspect to it also!
Not even about the eh Easter Bunny or any of that. You know, that’s just kind of to throw you off a little bit.
What are we afraid? Well…
Everyone is afraid of something different.
But I think I found that one thing! If there is one single
food or drink beverage, I thought that the Nightmare King from Burger King was absolutely terrifying.
I saw it.
That thing was was spooky. That’s the only way to describe it. But I think I found something that
singularly will will overcome
any amount of
terror I suppose
that the Nightmare King might have had and
That’s the Superfood Side, a kale salad, from Chick-fil-A.
I honestly think that’s probably one of the scariest items out there.
So many people don’t even know how to even comprehend it, you know. There’s different levels of fear.
This is one of those those things that just
gets into the absolute core of your soul and just shakes you and
eats at you deep inside and just leads to
To the point really beyond any comprehension or
conceivable expression, to be honest.
This is one of those things that eats at you and will just leave you haunted for probably decades…
at the very least.
They call it the Superfood Side.
No one knows!
Look, what does it have on it? We’ll find out in a minute. I gotta take a sip of water because my mouth is dry.
Well, I kind of drank half the glass of water because I’m just that scared!
Here’s what it has. Let’s just brace ourselves!!
That right there was even just difficult to read as it is and that patented broccolini –
They’re not just… that’s the real deal!
I just I want I want you to know how how big that is.
Maple vinaigrette dressing,
That they call nuts.
And that’s what it comes with. You can get this in various sizes. I got a large and that’s a view of it –
what they call
the Superfood Side.
See how it’s green like that? You don’t see something like that every day! I’ll tell you that.
So when it comes down to
consumption etiquette, ’cause you’re dealing with something that’s on an
entirely different level here, you have to do it in a certain way.
Where it’s just… when it’s that terrifying you have to show a certain degree of
respect and etiquette while consuming this.
So first thing you have to do is you have to put the nuts on it!
You have to add this little bit of a garnish right there a little bit of a
Put the nuts on it. So you kind of just rip the top off.
And then you just dump them in. If you want to consider it like a sacrificial offering
to please the Superfood Side Gods?
Then just look at it that way, you know, whatever whatever makes it an easier task to complete
so to speak. You know, you might say, “I don’t want to anger the Superfood Side Gods.” So this might be something to do
to just kind of keep you, and especially your family, safe in the end. So you can see the nuts on the top right there.
Right? You got to mix it together.
This is just how you please it, you know, this is how you,
you know, consider it as I said like a sacrificial
You might not want to do it, but it just has to be done at this point!
It’s it’s the only thing I can even say.
Once it’s at least mixed together into some acceptable degree anyway, you can see it there.
You have to take this they give you this plastic instrument to consume it properly with. As I said,
there’s a whole ritual that goes to it and they call this a plastic fork and you just have to…
See you have a plastic fork. You got to have a really good grip on it. Make sure it’s firm there and you have to…
Let me show you this close. You have to
kind of dig it like that. You have to puncture something like this.
See! You got to be really careful with it and once you have
some of the kale or the broccolini
skewered with this plastic harpoon, so to speak,
then you can open your mouth and consume it but it has to be in that order.
So with that – we followed the procedures. I think we’ll be safe this time around. I’m gonna give it a try.
It’s the Superfood Side kale salad from Chick-fil-A …
Before I eat this,
Wish me luck!
Ladies and gentlemen, it’s going in!
One one more bite.
There was a time
when people would consider one of the most powerful forces in the universe to be quasars.
Once you’ve crossed paths with the Superfood Side from Chick-fil-A,
I just I personally don’t think that that’s factually accurate anymore.
I think that this is a far more powerful force to reckon with quite frankly.
Here’s what it breaks down to…
To be quite honest it’s not bad.
We’ll just get to a quick rundown of it. Here’s the interesting thing about the Superfood Side, right?
It has the kale to it, right?
It’s a kale side. And then it has the broccolini which is like a it’s just broccoli for the most part.
It has lots of these leafy greens to it
The interesting thing though is that it has this, you know,
this maple vinaigrette dressing to it and these dried sour cherries,
which you very rarely ever see on on a salad, you know?
I’ve been trying to really emphasize the more terrifying points of this for Halloween time, but to be quite honest,
despite the fear level
that this has to it – It tastes just fine. I mean I can’t I can’t give any complaints.
I might not be the world’s biggest salad connoisseur or consumer. I’ll say that right off the bat.
But the interesting thing about this
I think that this is a really good salad for for anyone really even if you aren’t like a salad aficionado or
just a certified salad consumer.
I think this is a good place to start to be honest because I know sometimes if you just like going on the, you know,
the fatty greasy food
roundabout, so to speak, and that’s what you like to eat. You want to kind of get a healthier option?
I think this is a good place to start.
When it’s not overwhelming it’s not overbearing,
you know, but it tastes good no matter which way I think you look at it. You still get those more healthy leafy greens.
You can’t really too much of the kale or the broccoli believe it or not.
I mean it’s certainly there but it’s very well covered by this maple vinegarette garnish.
Which does have that little bit of Tang. I would actually say it has the perfect
amount of tang to it. And then that little bit of sweetness to it as well which just really ties it all together.
The dried sour cherries – that you do not see very often when it comes down to salads and I think that’s an awesome addition!
why this costs $4.19 for the large.
Because it has premium ingredients and I mean, it goes together great. It’s more on the chewier side.
So, you know, you’re really going to be giving yourself a jaw workout,
so to speak, where you know, you’re really gonna be chewing it up. And…
It’s not like it’s gonna disintegrate your teeth or anything, but it will be it will have that that more chewy texture to it.
In the end, however,
It’s uh, I mean, it’s just not bad. It’s a pretty simple salad.
But I mean it tastes good it has as I said, it’s just a healthy salad.
Goes together good. Has that perfect tang. I mean the salad dressing is great.
You know, I’m not a big fan of salad dressing, but this works out great!
I mean, as I said, it’s just got that perfect tangy and sweet balance – ties it all together.
Cherries are a great addition. The nuts are optional.
I mean, I think it adds a little bit of extra to it, you know, but it’s not absolutely necessary.
And uh yeah the kale and the broccolini herb. Or we’ll just call it broccoli. It does go together nicely.
So that said, you know the price for this is $4.19.
If there was only one thing that really just two things that I just want to add to this and…
Salad, I don’t want to issue any disrespect. Because as I said, this is not a force that you want to reckon with.
So I’m trying to just tread very very lightly here when I say this.
But, I think maybe if it had a little bit of romaine lettuce, perhaps some more leafy greens
I think would do would be a nice addition to it.
And also when you do see the size of this, I mean you can see that it isn’t the deepest or largest container.
I mean it certainly does have a
good amount of
greens and ingredients to it, but I wish that it was a little bit larger.
I mean when you see that and you see that’s the large, you have to say to yourself,
“Well, what does the small look like?” I mean it doesn’t it doesn’t seem very large for a salad because you’ll have some salads from
any establishment and you order the large and it’s huge they’re giving you like a whole bowl of greens. As whereas this is just a
tiny little thing.
Might be small and it might be a little more on the costly side.
But it does taste very good and
I just think it’s a good a good salad that even even people who may not be very seasoned
consumers of said salads will very likely enjoy it. I mean, I very seldom get the Superfood Side, but I enjoy it.
I think it tastes very good. So with that out of 10, I’m gonna be giving it a 9.0 out of 10.
That’s a 9 flat out of 10. I just think it’s a very enjoyable salad – very well put together.
It has a great balance of ingredients
and flavors there and it’s just something I recommend you give it a try. Even if you’re not a huge fast-food consumer,
Try it out. I personally recommend it and I think you’ll probably enjoy it.
So bear in mind everything that I said. Treat the salad with respect.
Don’t don’t, you know, don’t disrespect the salad. Just remember,
It’s a very very terrifying scary force, but I think you will be pleased with it in the end!
That’s all that I have for you ladies and gentlemen. I’m your host TheReportOfTheWeek.
Today’s view is for the Superfood Side from
Chick-fil-A. That’s all that I have for you. Thank you. Take care and have a Happy Halloween!
