It’s a lovely Friday. We’re so close to the weekend. And I thought, “You know what, treat yo’self. You gon’ have Macs today.”

I got on GrabFood, ordered my usual McSpicy meal with cheese no veg, coke zero (cos I’m on a diet), no upsize. But this time I changed the fries to their latest ‘Salted Egg Yolk Loaded Fries‘ to see if it’s worth my money, calories and effort to write this article.

Within the next 30 minutes, my abang delivery arrived and gave me a bleak stare before handing over my food.

Was this already a bad sign?

Is It Worth It?

Just like anyone else, I quickly reached out for the box of Salted Egg Yolk fries first to see if got enough sauce anot? And to my surprise, they poured a pretty decent amount of sauce all over my fries.

So I thought, “How bad could this be right?”

I took my first bite and everything froze in time. The wind stopped blowing. The birds stopped chirping. I saw dark clouds looming in the distance.

It. Was. Terrible.

It tastes nothing like Salted Egg Yolk. It was strangely tangy and creamy and it left a really unpleasant aftertaste in my mouth. It was sad as Donald Trump would’ve said. Thanks McDonald’s for the generous amount of sauce but did QC seriously approve of the taste?

Instead of finishing my fries, I got on McDonald’s Singapore Facebook page to put together a list of my favourite comments:

 

And my favourite one of all:

Calling it “Salted Egg Yolk” sauce was definitely a bit of a stretch.

Sorry McDonald’s but thank u, next.

The Peach Pie on the other hand sounded like a pretty good contender to take on the classic Apple Pie. According to pictures, it has a vibrant pink crust pocketing a hot peach filling.

All pretty in pink, I surprisingly enjoyed it as compared to the fries (pretty low benchmark, I must admit). It smells exactly like Peach Tea or Pink Dolphin. I’ve grown super familiar and comfortable with the classic Apple Pie but I won’t mind going back to McDonald’s for another Peach Pie.

Also don’t lie and say “but Apple Pie more authentic leh”. Let’s be real, when was the last time you ordered one?

The only great thing that came out of my meal today was the McSpicy add cheese no veg. Trust me, just skip the Salted Egg Yolk Fries the next time you’re at McDonald’s.

Thanks McDonald’s for the effort you put into releasing the new items but seriously have you tried Salted Egg Yolk man?!
