It’s been a couple of weeks now but we went to McDonalds for a Caramel Frappe, which if you read my previous blog article is my new favourite starbucks. They asked if we were interested in a Mac Jr or Grand Mac.. we’re like huh, what? No… just the drinks.
Well today I decided to try the Jr because I’m not sure I can eat the Grand Mac when the Big Mac leaves me pretty dang full! And you know what? The Jr is the perfect size!
Whenever I go to Burger King, unless I’m completely famished, I get the Jr there and I’m totally fine. But at McD’s I’d get their cheeseburgers which are good but you need two to fill up. I usually get the kids meal because of the fun toy and well, enough other stuff to fill me up. But now with the Jr, I don’t need to do that anymore.
Now granted, they JUST came out with this so it could be really good now and go carppy later as with the fish bites and the Angus burgers. They start out awesome and then, I guess McD’s is like Meh and they aren’t as good anymore. But I digress…
So before I ordered I asked what the difference is with the Jr. and they said the meat is different, it’s a little smaller than the quarter pounder (they aren’t kidding) but the rest is the same, pickle, lettuce, and mac sauce. I was like OK and said I’ll try it. I’m expecting a glorified overpriced cheeseburger but I was wrong.
This thing is kinda big in my hands. (I’ll save you the joke… yes, that’s what she said!)I opened it and was surprised. I think that pun wasn’t intended but you never know…
I rotated it and the meat is as big as the bun! When was the last time that happened at McD’s?! Well OK, I don’t eat the quarter pounders so maybe they’re that big too, I don’t know but I can tell you that the normal Big Mac patties are NOT this size. They’re skinnier and smaller. So I’m thinking you get the same amount of meat and one less bun which is fine with me because saves calories and carbs! I am pleasantly surprised with this Jr.
I’m thinking McD’s better start paying me for all this endorsement! But this was a quinky dink. They’re not Habit Burgers, which I still have to do that review but if you want fast food that fills you up and you have, I guess, a small stomach, this will do just nicely.
Til next time, thank you for reading and spring is almost here! Does anyone really get that gardening joke? haha. As usual, if you’d like to donate to my cause for a laptop click here. If not, that’s cool too. I love to write either way.
