Fresh and Lovely, Like a Dream Come True

If you haven’t heard Kool and the Gangs song ‘Fresh’ from 1984 then you need to. Kool (if that’s his real name) has fallen for his latest love.

She’s fresh, fresh, exciting
She’s so exciting to me
She’s fresh, fresh exciting
She’s so inviting to me, yeah



And if a sandwich could have a song associated with it then that’s the one I would put with the Whole Meal Grilled Chicken Sandwich from Supermac’s.  Like the love of Kool’s life, it’s Fresh and Lovely, Like a Dream Come True. And as well as being 100% fresh, it’s also 100% Irish. Kool and his Gang have been around for a long time and know exactly what they are doing when it comes to composing a good tune. Pat McDonagh and his team are celebrating their 40th year this year and nobody knows how to compose a better sandwich than the Galway man. Ingredients are a like a melody. The better they are the more memorable the final product will be. And that’s the secret with the Grilled Chicken Sandwich – the ingredients. The wholemeal buns are supplied by Coughlan’s bakery in Naas. The Batavia lettuce and red onion are supplied by Curley’s Fresh Food in Galway and the recommended Chipotle mayonnaise is supplied by Spice O’ Life in Dunmanway, Co Cork. But the real secret is that because the chicken is fresh it’s full of moisture. Frozen meat loses moisture and when it loses moisture it loses taste.  It tastes great and it’s good for you as (and this is the really good news!) it has fewer than 350 calories and 39.5g of protein. It has proven so far to be a very popular addition to the menu. The Sandwich has a point score of 7 Smart Points on the Weightwatchers SmartPoints Calculator when Light Mayo is used.  Fresh as a summer breeze, So inviting to me.


A quick search of Google tells me that Kool’s real name is Robert ‘Kool’ Bell and another great Kool and the Gang tune is ‘Celebration’. (Celebrate Good Times, Come On! – you’re singing it to yourself right, now aren’t you?). There’s plenty to celebrate this year at Supermac’s. Not least of which is the delicious Grilled Chicken Sandwich and that’s Kool and the Gang by me. Now that’s Fresh!
