The prices never seem set for these delightful snacks.

I picked up a Rustlers quarter pounder last week for 1:09,and then i noticed a few days ago that they now cost 1:39.

Upon closer inspection,i realised that it wasn't a quarter pounder but a regular cheese burger (Which i had not seen before)

They seem to be making many more different type's of snacks and sandwiches at the moment too.

At Asda a few days ago,i noticed a Rustlers 'Chicken Curry' sandwich.

So far, i have tried

* The Quarter pounder (The best of the lot)

* The Cheese Burger

* The Hot Dog

* The Chicken Fillet sandwich

* The Chicken sub.

* The Meat ball hero


If any other Rustlers fans have tried anything i haven't mentioned here,i would like to know what they are,and how they tasted.

No food snobs please.
This is a Rustlers fan's thread.

I've tried a bacon cheese burger which was absolutely brilliant. My local co-op do them for 1.00 all the time. Usually get one when I can't be bothered to cook.

Just had a look and this is the entire range;

Current Range
The Quarter Pounder - burger with cheese and Rustlers signature sauce
The Chicken Sandwich - chicken breast with mayonnaise
The BBQ Rib - rib-shaped pork with barbecue sauce
The Mighty Angus - Angus burger with tomato relish and cheese
The Deluxe With Bacon & Cheese - burger with bacon, cheese and Rustlers signature sauce
The Big One - a large burger with cheese and Rustlers signature sauce
The Cheese Burger - burger with cheese and Rustlers signature sauce
The Zingy Chicken - chicken breast with peri peri chilli sauce
The Texan (Limited Edition) - Burger with Chipotle Sauce
The Chilli Dog (Limited Edition) - Hot Dog with hot chilli sauce
The Meatball Sub - Meatballs with tangy tomato and herb sauce
The Southern Fried Chicken Hot Sub - Sub with southern fried chicken and mayonnaise
The Club Sub - Sub with chicken breast, streaky bacon and mayonnaise

Discontinued Products
Italian Chicken Fillet Sandwich - with tomato salsa sauce
Chicken Tikka Naan - with curry sauce
The Big Breakfast - sausage and bacon, with tomato ketchup
The Bacon Roll - bacon with tomato ketchup

Big grins to signify the ones I've had the pleasure of tasting

Sorry nothing constructive to add. But I would like to share my experiences of Rustlers.

The last time I had one was 2006 and it was I think a QPWC. My pal prepared it for me and also added several slices of ham. I'd never have thought to add ham but this really enhanced the taste, it was yummy.

I choose not to have Rustlers in my fridge only because I would not be able to resist eating them straightaway. But if I had willpower I would store several in the fridge as a standby snack, especially for when McDonalds is closed.

I've just remebered as well...a few months ago Rustlers had two 'Wraps' out, a BBQ one and a Chicken Salsa one, tried both at once and both were great as well (salsa one just had the edge)

The Chicken Curry sandwich that i saw a few days ago was definitely made by Rustlers.
It looked the same as the chicken and mayo sandwich,but the sauce was curry/mayo rather than normal mayo.

I used to love the hot dogs, and could have eaten them all the time. Unfortunately I can not find them any more. All the supermarkets I go to don't even do Rustlers any more they do Feasters or something which don't taste the same.

I have found cheapo shops (by this I mean Bargain shops nothing derogatory) do some of the burgers but still can't find the Hot Dogs

The Feasters burgers aren't as tasty as a Rustlers.

And they have normal tomato ketchup in sachets rather than the superb Rustlers special sauce.

Im getting hungry.

I tried one about 6 months ago, and i really didn't enjoy it. I was desperate and couldnt afford a sarnie, so i bought a burger. I nuked it in the microwave as stated on the packet ... but it didn't actually taste of anything.

I love a pot noodle though

I used to love them as a student, but I can't say I've had one since. I used to put the bap into the toaster and heat the patty with the cheese on it in the microwave....was always great!

I used to do a similar thing, I would put the bun under the grill to toast instead though. It did make them better.

Toasting the bun would make them much better, wish i thought of that before!

I really like the BBQ rib one. If you can be bothered to shop around, they're usually on offer somewhere. I noticed the range has expanded so much recently.

I haven't tried any of the chicken, as i find it can get too rubbery in the microwave.

I really like Rustlers burgers. They're great. However, I prefer to dig into a lovely portion of Iceland ready brand burgers. They're great as a cheap snack, or even a yummy dinner time. Can't get much better, really! I love them! People who look at them and think "eww they're gross!" don't know what they're missing out on. I love them. Yum. Yum. Yum.

My local corner shop used to stock the Rustlers Hot Dogs,but at the moment all they have is the Quarter pounder's and the Chicken Sandwich.
Occasionally they have the regular cheese burgers in stock.

Asda had the Hot Dog's in stock last time i went there-and it was there that i noticed the new Chicken curry sandwich (Which im going to try this weekend if they are still in stock)

Im having a Rustlers quarter pounder tonight for my tea,with a big side portion of string fellow fries.

Heavenly.

They seem quite rare.

I implore you to stay out of the 'Iceland Chav Food' Thread as I know one or two folk that will think you mistreat your kids for comments such as that ** Read the thread if you don't understand***
