After an unscheduled break from posting new reviews due to technical difficulties we are back with a vengeance! You’ll be getting this review today and another review tomorrow.

Today’s Tasty Lie is another sandwich sent to us by Raybern Foods. Before the site fell apart a couple of weeks ago we featured our first review of one of their sandwiches and I was a fan. We’ll see if that holds true with this one as well. Then we’ll be back tomorrow with a Hot Pockets review. That one should be fun.
Let’s check out the Ham and Cheddar!
I’ll be honest, I’m less excited for this one than I was for the Southwest Steak. Ham and cheese is a sandwich staple, but it’s also just a little plain. It all depends on the ham. Great ham can make for a great sandwich, but usually unless you’re buying the high quality ham yourself, it’s not what you’ll end up with.
This looks decent enough. Like all of Raybern’s sandwiches it’s on a roll and seems to have a nice-sized portion of meat. I can’t tell if it’s actual slices of cheddar cheese or a cheddar cheese sauce in there but we’ll find out shortly.
These are big, filling sandwiches so it’s definitely got that going in its favor. They’re also slotted at two servings each, though. Let’s check out the real deal.
Well if there’s one thing this sandwich is, it’s cheesy. There’s a ton of cheese in there, way more than the package would lead you to believe. That’s kinda’ cool. Let’s take a look inside.
So yeah, as you can see it’s an overload of cheese. No complaints about that. There’s also quite a bit of meat which means this will be a hearty meal.
Unfortunately the taste left a lot to be desired. The problem, again, was the ham. It’s the same problem you’d have with any pre-made ham sandwich. Ham is a strange meat like that. The ham in this sandwich just seemed a little over-processed and chewy. Just not the kind of ham I prefer to have in a sandwich.
The bread on this one didn’t cook as well as the bread in the Southwest Steak, this one the bread for a bit dry on the edged. I’d take the blame for it, but I followed cooking times to the letter and cooked it the same way as the other sandwich.
That said, it’s not a BAD sandwich. I’ve had bad sandwich. It’s just probably not one I’d run out to get again, especially considering it had a bit of a higher caloric, carb, and sodium content than the Southwest Steak. That sandwich really won me over and this one just didn’t measure up to it.
If you’d like to try a Raybern’s sandwich yourself, head on over to their Facebook page and snag yourself a coupon to save a dollar on two sandwiches. Not a bad deal for just hitting a Facebook button!
