Sam’s Club adds more Chick-fil-A-type products
Almost a year after debuting its Southern Style Chicken Bites under its Member’s Mark store brand, Sam’s Club has added a Southern Style Chicken Sandwich and Southern Style Waffle Fries to its freezer aisle. Here’s the thing: Consumers say the products taste a lot like Chick-fil-A’s offerings.
The Southern Style Chicken Sandwich, featuring individually wrapped breaded chicken breast fillets, costs 15.98 for a 69-ounce bag. A 4-pound bag of waffle fries costs $4.98.
The Bentonville, Ark.-based retailer garnered much social media attention last year after releasing its Member’s Mark Southern Style Chicken Bites. Online foodies hailed the private brand product as tasting just like Chick-fil-A’s chicken nuggets. Not a bad comparison, considering Chick-fil-A’s popularity with the masses.
