McDONALD’s – SWEET BBQ CHICKEN

14 Aug

UntitledThe full name of this sammich is the “Sweet BBQ Bacon Buttermilk Crispy Chicken” sammich.   That is one hell of a name.  I shortened it to …..

“Uh…can I get that BBQ chicken-wing-ding sammich?”

“Sorry…what you say?”

“Uh… can I get the crispy bacon with chicken BBQ sammich?”

“uhhhhh yeah…….sure.”

SHADDUP already and tell me how it tastes funny-jerk!

Okay, I can’t believe I am going to say this, but this is the BEST thing I have ever eaten at a Mickey D’s.    Yeah.  I said it.

You know I am not that big of fan of their food anymore – but this sammich has all the flavor and textures and just all-around-indulgence that you want from a fast food place.

I loved this damn sammich and I am not afraid to admit it!

McDONALD’S – FLAVOR SHAKE – GARLIC PARMESAN

19 Nov

UntitledThis seems so crazy it might work.  This also seems like Dudley’s Shake-an-egg but that’s at Easter.   But these are chickens and they do come from eggs so maybe I ain’t so crazy.

I never liked Mickey D’s nuggets.   Just don’t.  They taste weird to me.  But they this new thing where you can ask for flavor packets and then you dump the packet into a bag along with the nugs and shake the hell out of it and you get what you see in the pic.   Dusted Nugs.

Now this totally make them taste waaaaaayyy better than before…but not good enough that I would order them often.

I did have fun shaking the bag though.   I looked insane sitting in the Mickey D’s.   I also seemed to be the first person to ever order it because when I asked for it the cashier looked at me like “do we even sell that?”  I had to remind them twice for it and then they even had to ask someone where the shake-stuff was.  wow.

McDonald’s Strawberry Lemonade

14 Sep

//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.jsIs there anyone that doesn’t love lemonade?  Like seriously?  Go sit down somewhere.   Lemonade is awesome.  Flavored lemonades are awesomer even.  Sometimes.

I don’t eat much McDonald’s unless it’s a new menu item…and now we have Olivia for that (hee hee hee).   But Mickey D’s does manage to keep some skin in the game with these drinks.

Now (and if my luck holds…it’s for a limited time) they have lemonades.   You can get a frozen or over-ice regular or strawberry version.  I have the over-ice-strawberry here and it was pretty tasty.  Not overly sweet or tart.  Just enough balance so as not to offend.

I also like the mini chunks of real (REAL LIFE!!!!) strawberries floating around in there.  Makes a fun game when I am fishing them out to eat later.   Ok so it’s not actually a fun game but I have a long drive sometimes and radio in this town suuuuucks so I have to do something distracting while driving…besides texting…and finding podcasts…and sending a tweet…and eating ice out of the cup while at the same time trying to get one of the strawberry pieces.

DOUBLE THE LOVIN’ SPECIAL at MICKEY D’s

10 Jul

 Once upon a time (what..less than a year or two?) you could get a double-cheeseburger and small fries for two bucks.

Well now it’s advertised as a summer special – both together for $2.50.

Well it’s still a decent value these days and it’s a limited time so keep it in mind if you are looking for a quick bite for under three bucks.

MCDONALD’S ARTISAN GRILLED CHICKEN SANDWICH

14 Apr

UntitledSo Mickey D’s took the only sammich I liked on their menu (the Chick-fil-a knock-off-Southwest Chicken Sandwich) and introduced a new chicken sammich– The Artisan Grilled Chicken Sammich.   So I tried it.

The bun is very good.  I am guessing that is the “artisan” part.   The lettuce and tomato are …lettuce and tomato.

The chicken – which you can see doesn’t even cover half the bun…is pretty decent.   It tastes like a chicken breast with some Italian salad dressing on it.   It’s not bad actually.

But for around four bucks it’s not a good deal to me.   The chicken portion I got (and this could be an anomaly) was way too small.   In the photo it might seem like the lettuce is covering the chicken, and it is, but as you can see from the bottom right — it doesn’t even stretch across the entire bun.   This felt like half a sandwich.   Ordered as a combo I think it’s around seven dollars and change and that is just too much.  For that I could get something more substantial somewhere else.

McDonalds Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie

6 Jun

Okay kids, this might be the blueberry-est…. pomegranate-y-est thing I have ever had in my life.   It’s quite good.

But it’s very…berry.   That tart and tangy flavor, which I love, hits you like a nine pound sledge.   Love it.   Should have ordered a large instead of the small.   Damn-y it’s berry-yyyy.

I thought they had done well with the Pineapple- Mango, but this just might be the best and boldest flavor to come from the arches in a while.

 

well done Ron.
