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

When it comes to Walmart’s rotisserie chicken, you might want to reconsider before grabbing another one. While the low price tag can be tempting, especially if it’s on clearance, for $4.98, you’ll only be getting less than 2 pounds of chicken—1 lb. 13 oz. to be exact. Why settle for less when for the same price, you can pick up a larger bird at Sam’s Club or Costco?

Despite Sam’s Club being owned by Walmart, the product is not the same. A bird from Sam’s weighs in at a whopping 3 pounds, matching Costco’s rotisserie chicken weight. Not only is size a factor, but flavor also plays a significant role. Reviews on Walmart’s product page are hit or miss, with complaints about overcooked or undercooked chicken. In contrast, Costco consistently ranks highest in taste tests. Costco’s super juicy and flavorful rotisserie chicken tops the charts, while Walmart’s comes in last.

One Reddit user noted, “Sam’s rotisserie chickens crush Costco’s rotisserie chickens every day of the week.” However, Walmart does have an edge in one category—their sodium content. For a 3-ounce serving, Walmart’s rotisserie chicken contains 690 mg of sodium, slightly higher than Sam’s Club at 550 mg, and Costco at 460 mg. Whole Foods offers a lower sodium option, with their rotisserie chicken containing just 280 mg of sodium per 1/4 of a bird, making it a solid choice for those watching their sodium intake.
