Loyal Turkey Sandwich Report readers might remember that a couple months ago, my co-worker, Josh Mishell waged a formal complaint to the Spicy Pickle. We were excited when they promptly returned the email and invited Josh out to lunch. Of course, when I heard about this, I weaseled my way in.
The lunch was all set up, and then the Spicy Pickle dude vanished. Stopped returning emails and the Power Lunch fell through. Since that time, Josh and I have boycotted the Spicy Pickle and it continues today. Look, they make a nice enough Turkey Sandwich, but they are no Smiling Moose and certainly not in the class of Mendelson’s. Plus, I put them in the same category as Heidi’s, so it’s no skin off my balls to just phase SP out of my life altogether. No big whoop.
Let me just get to the point here: Arby’s makes a fucking good Turkey Sandwich. I’ve been meaning to get one of their Toasted Subs and I finally got to it today. And I’ll tell you what, their have a Turkey Bacon Club is a solid Turkey Sandwich. I thoroughly enjoyed the fuck out of that thing.
Ok, on to the big news: A colleague of mine, Josh Mishell, is also a big Turkey Sandwich fan. He recently stopped by The Spicy Pickle and noticed that they changed their bread. He immediately lodged a complaint thru their website. To their credit, they immediately responded and invited him to come in to have lunch with them and talk things over.
He took them up on their offer and asked if I could join in, being that I’m big fucking deal in the world of Turkey Sandwiches. They accepted and I’m meeting with the big shots over at The Spicy Pickle.
Trust me – I will be asking the tough questions. No softballs lobbed up for them to hit out of the park in this conversation. I’m gonna make Mike Wallace look like Pee Wee Herman. At the top of my list is going to be Turkey Quality. I want to know who their vendor is and if they are confident about their cold cuts.
