I try to cook most of our meals at home, especially now that I'm working at home, so the commute doesn't interfere. But we do enjoy our fair share of eating out as a special treat, or to fill in a gap on a particularly busy day. This past weekend Boo and I drove to Ottawa to see friends, and we indulged in our favourite drive-thru, road trip option - McDonald's. He always goes for a chicken nugget Happy Meal, but I like to try different things. As long as I have the fries. The fries are an absolute must, and I've been known to grab some to fuel my shopping trips from time to time. Well, there's a new menu item now on the list of new things to try.
The Big Mac. The McFlurry. The baked apple pies. The World Famous Fries.
McDonald’s® isn’t short of iconic menu items that take top spot in the legend department. But at the end of January, a new titan of sandwich history was unleashed to join the ranks as the next legend.
McDonald’s unleashed the CBO® (Chicken, Bacon, Onion), the newest legendary sandwich to grace McDonald’s menu boards.
To celebrate such a momentous occasion, McDonald’s held a top-secret Flavour Session in Toronto for its Twitter super fans. Some of Canada’s biggest names in fast-foodie culture were also in attendance. Together, they enjoyed the first taste of the CBO in Canada.
Like love at first bite, these are their first impressions.
There's bacon. I think I'll have to give this one a go :)
