Whole Foods Rotisserie Chicken ... or what a Giant Unsweetened Peeps would taste like.

ipsedixit | Oct 19, 201003:14 PM     22

I had to swing by Whole Foods to pick up something last night (it was olives for my SO), and because it was late decided to pick up a rotisserie chicken for dinner.

Epic mistake on my part.

I'll be the first to admit, I'm not breaking any news by saying that the rotisserie chicken at Whole Foods sucks -- and sucks hard.

It's tasteless, rubbery and eating it actually made me want to eat my nephews rubber ducky toy.

Plus, are these chickens from the land of Lilliputians? I could swear that I've seen Cotton Swabs bigger than some of those drumsticks. (And, heck, I bet those Cotton Swabs tasted better, too.)

Ok, rant over.

What I want to know is WHY their rotisserie chicken is so darn subpar?

I mean, I could give my aforementioned 4 year old nephew, a raw chicken, some salt, a hot oven, and a he could produce a product that's about 10x more tasty than what Whole Foods is putting out, and these guys are paid to make this crap.

So, anyone have any actual insight?

Inquiring, and hungry, minds want to know.
