Cafe W (Walgreens) Chicken & Cheese Crispy Quesadilla

I am a big fan of tasty house label frozen foods, and Walgreens with their Cafe W (Cafe Dubya) house brand is one of these things that I pay attention too. Under their Cafe W brand they have cheeseburgers, chicken sandwiches, Philly cheese steak sandwiches, some kind of Stromboli rolls, waffles and these quesadillas. Most of the times I just get their cheeseburgers that cost either $1.29 per box or 2 boxes for $2.00. The cheeseburgers are pretty much rebadged/rebranded Fast Bites cheeseburgers that are made by the Advanced Pierre Foods company. So when I recently stopped by the Union Square Walgreens, I noticed these quesadillas (3 in box) for $2.79 and decided to take a pack and try it out. I gotta let you know that whenever I am at a Walgreens store (whatever I happen to be), these quesadillas happen to be a rarity, and I only seen them 4 times, so it made sense to me to grab a box since it was on the shelf; the local Walgreens by my place never seems to have them in stock.

So this is how the cheesy crispy quesadillas came out to the plate. The outer crust reminded me of KFC potato wedges. The crust is fairlly crispy, but not too much: there is a crisp to it but it is kinda diffused by the cheese and chicken stuffing. On the front of the box you can see fairly squarely diced chicken pieces, but the actual product happened to be completely different story: the chicken came out to be very mushy and it mixed with the cheese, so I had hard time to picking-up the chicken flavor out of the quesadillas. But the cheesy and crispy crust made up for the weak chicken, so I was pretty satisfied and would not mind snacking again of these quesadillas. At $0.93 per each qusadilla it sure beats the $1.29+tax crunchy tacos from Taco Bell. I rate these quesadillas at 4.0/5.0 and the value rating is 4.0/5.0.
