The latest entry to the Signature Crafted line of sandwiches at McDonald’s is Garlic White Cheddar. My first taste came in the form of the new Garlic White Cheddar Burger.Here’s how McDonald’s describes their Garlic White Cheddar Sandwiches:
A medley of crunchy garlic chips and smooth, flavorful garlic aioli, crisp iceberg lettuce, a juicy tomato slice and melty white cheddar cheese. A 100% pure beef ¼ lb. patty with absolutely no fillers, additives or preservatives. Served on an artisan roll.
The latest from KFC is something you may have spotted early, but the official launch date for the new Crispy Colonel is Monday, April 23. The Crispy Colonel is KFC’s counter to the Chick-fil-A competition which has taken a major bite into the chicken business (and burger business for that matter) over recent years. The Crispy Colonel sandwich is an extra-crispy chicken sandwich with mayonnaise and pickles. There are three other flavors to choose from in the “Signature Flavor Sandwiches” line-up which we’ve seen featured in past LTO’s: Smoky Mountain BBQ, Nashville Hot, and Georgia Gold honey mustard BBQ. Thanks to GrubGrade reader Josh for the pics of his local KFC offering the Crispy Colonel early. The classic, un-sauced Crispy Colonel Sandwich is priced at $3.99 and 50 cents more for a Signature Flavor option.
