I have been avoiding trying the French Onion Soup at Applebee’s for years. I had heard that their version is a “diet” version, using fat free cheese, among other things. I figured it would be horrible. So, my mission here was to balance out my blog a bit, and bring the average down. The time had come to sample this monstrosity. What would the rating be, 2.0? 1.0? I laughed maniacally, as I walked in. I was shocked to learn that they actually have two versions of the soup: regular, and diet. That was a surprise. So, I ordered both. See below for my review of the diet version. The regular version was at least as good as other chain restaurant versions. The cheese was a decent swiss, and the broth was tasty. It could have used more cheese, however.
