Review of Mcdonald's New Chicken Mcbites

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

For months, McDonalds was running a special on Chicken McNuggets.  They were $2.99 for a ten piece or $5 for twenty.  McNuggets are an easy on-the-go snack and my children and I ate a lot of them over the past year.  Well, that special is over and McDonalds has a new product called Chicken McBites.  There are three sizes, a snack size, regular size and sharable size.  I went with the regular size.  I should have been suspicious when I asked the cashier if she liked them and she told me she had never tried them.  

First Impression

The box is cute.  It’s kind of tubular with a cutout space on one of the flaps to hold your dipping sauce.  The wording on the box describes the chicken as “poppable.”  This is accurate.  They will easily fit in your mouth, yet they are large enough to dip.  The size of the box seemed to be worth the money.  Everything seemed fine so I took my bag and left the store.

Getting the Food Home

Luckily for me, the children ordered sandwiches.  If they would have got Chicken McBites, I might have had to cook something else for them to eat.  Yes, they were that bad.  The box tells me that I would find lightly breaded premium breast meat inside.  There was breading in the box, lots of it.  The pieces that I could tell had chicken inside the breading were so dry I needed to drown them in sauce to eat them.  Needless to say, I am less than impressed with Chicken McBites.  If I would have had time to take them back to the store, I would have gotten a refund.

Room for Improvement

The concept is good.  There is nothing wrong with bite sized chicken pieces.  Other fast food restaurants sell them.  If I remember correctly, a popular chicken chain had the same problem when they introduced popcorn chicken.  McDonalds Chicken McBites just need contain more chicken and less crunchy breading.  The pictures on the box look appetizing.  If McDonalds can get their actual product to look more like what they are advertising, I’d buy them again.
