People aren’t happy with the price of Buc-ee’s new brisket sandwich, but should they be?
I have to admit that I’m not in the league of those who think Buc-ee’s BBQ is the worst. Keep in mind that we’re talking about a gas station here, not a full-on barbecue. And as far as gas station food goes, I feel like Buc-ee’s is a great option when grabbing something on the go.
So yeah, I’m interested whenever I hear the beaver is rolling out some new grub.
Anyway, today I saw that Buc-ee’s had recently introduced the new XXL brisket sandwich. One of the things that immediately struck me was that a lot of people were upset that the sandwich was priced at $12.99. Fair enough.
But upon further review, the sandwich weighs 13 ounces, just under a pound, which is 16 ounces. When you look at it that way, it’s really not a bad deal.
Let’s compare the value to that of a quarter-pounder of cheese from McDonald’s. According to Fast Food Price, the sandwich will set you back $4.89, which comes to $1.22 an ounce.
By comparison, Buc-ee’s new XXL Brisket Sandwich is $12.99. If you break down the cost of the sandwich by ounces, it’s not exactly $1.00 an ounce. Not so bad now, huh?
The only problem I see is that unless you’re a growing kid or a really big human being, you probably don’t need nearly a pound of food for a meal.
Trust me, I’ve struggled with my weight since I was a teenager. And one thing I learned early on is that maintaining or losing weight comes down to portion control. Simply reducing how much you eat by 20-30% can make your pants fit a little better.
