Why You Should Never Buy A Rotisserie Chicken From Walmart
By COURTNEY GIARDINA
Although rotisserie chickens are a big hit among American shoppers, buying one from Walmart may not be the best idea. While the low price tag of $4.98 may be enticing, you’ll be getting exactly 1 pound and 13 ounces of chicken, whereas you can get a much bigger bird at Sam’s Club or Costco.
Walmart’s rotisserie chicken earns mixed reviews too, with some customers saying they’ve “never been disappointed,” and others say their chicken is either over or undercooked. Costco, however, consistently ranks the highest in multiple taste tests of rotisserie chickens, while Walmart’s chicken was assessed as “very fatty” and “bone thin” by Eat This, Not That!
However, Walmart is undoubtedly the winner when it comes to sodium content, as a 3-ounce serving of its rotisserie chicken comes in at 690 milligrams of sodium. Meanwhile, the rotisserie chicken by Publix is a much better low sodium option, with just over 200 mg sodium for the same serving size.
