Here’s Why Purchasing a Rotisserie Chicken from Walmart Is a Bad Idea

Think twice about buying another rotisserie chicken from Walmart. While the low price may be attractive, especially if it’s on sale, $4.98 gets you less than two pounds of chicken—1 lb. 13 oz. to be exact.

Why settle for less when you can get a larger bird for the same price at Sam’s or Costco?

Even though Walmart owns Sam’s Club, the products are not identical. Sam’s fowl weighs 3 pounds, the same as Costco’s rotisserie chicken. Along with size, flavor is a key aspect.

Reviews on Walmart’s product page are inconsistent, with concerns regarding overdone or undercooked chicken.

Costco, on the other hand, consistently comes out on top in taste tests. Costco’s exceptionally juicy and flavorful rotisserie chicken earns first position, with Walmart’s finishing last.

According to one Reddit user, “Sam’s rotisserie chickens crush Costco’s rotisserie chickens every day of the week.” However, Walmart has an advantage in one area: its salt content. Walmart’s rotisserie chicken includes 690 mg of salt per 3-ounce serving, which is slightly higher than Sam’s Club’s 550 mg and Costco’s 460 mg.

Whole Foods provides a lower sodium option with their rotisserie chicken, which contains only 280 mg of sodium per 1/4 of a bird, making it an excellent choice for individuals limiting their sodium intake.
