I saw this video on The Huffington Post and The Nosh Show discussion about breakfast all day came to mind. Sonic does it… Jack in the Box does it… is McDonald’s next? The question of breakfast all day is presented at the end of the video. Would you want a McGriddles for lunch?
News of the Glazed Donut Breakfast Sandwich from Dunkin’ Donuts has been circulating the web over the last few weeks and ahecht, a Grub Scout, recently sent me some pics to drool over.I was wondering if the Glazed Donut Breakfast Sandwich is something you guys would be interested in trying. To pay homage to the inaugural episode of The Nosh Show this week… let’s do a little web version of Interested/Not Interested.What do you think? Is the Glazed Donut Breakfast Sandwich just a gimmicky attempt to stir up attention or do you think a donut as bread is an innovative idea? Discussion time!
I have a lot of respect for Arby’s. Whether you opt for the conventional Roast Beef ‘n Cheddar Melt, dare to try the something more unusual like the Fish Sandwich, or pine after cancelled offerings like the Chicken Salad Sandwich, you are likely to come away satisfied. So when Arby’s announced the arrival of their King’s Hawaiian Roast Beef & Swiss Sandwich - basically their original roast beef sandwich, amped up on an iconic King’s Hawaiian bun – I had high expectations. As it turns out, Arby’s exceeded those expectations.
Prior to trying this sandwich, most of my associations with King’s Hawaiian bread had to do with ripping it into pieces and dipping it into spinach and artichoke dip at New Year’s Eve parties. But driving home with the smell of a sweet, bready King’s Hawaiian bun and savory roast beef filling my car has forever changed this perception. Arby’s will make you believe King’s Hawaiian buns were made to go on roast beef sandwiches and roast beef sandwiches alone.… continue reading “Review: King’s Hawaiian Roast Beef & Swiss Sandwich from Arby’s”

It’s new Crispy Chicken Grillers and they are the latest in a line of test market menu items at Taco Bell that might see nationwide release at some point.Crispy Chicken Grillers are sort of like the Taco Bell version of a McDonald’s McWrap or Snack Wrap and they feature marinated chicken breaded with crushed tortilla chips. Available in Avocado Ranch, Spicy Ranch and Mango BBQ flavors. Priced at $1.49 each or $3.99 for a 2-Griller combo and large drink.

Can you imagine a more beloved fast food breakfast sandwich than the Egg McMuffin from McDonald’s? Sure, McDonald’s being the #1 most popular fast food chain in the world for decades has a lot to do with the iconic status of the sandwich, but you can’t argue with its staying power. Now can you imagine McDonald’s taking another super popular menu item like the Big Mac and giving it a healthy makeover? Could be a sign of disaster. Well the Egg McMuffin isn’t going anywhere, but it’s got some new competition with the new Egg White Delight.McDonald’s describes their Egg White Delight like this:
Make your morning with 100%, freshly grilled egg whites, extra lean Canadian bacon and smooth white cheddar*, stacked on a toasted English muffin made with eight grams of whole grain. Great taste for 250 calories.
So you’ve got a couple of things to consider with the Egg White Delight. Having the Egg McMuffin come first is both a blessing and a curse. A blessing because it’s paved the way as a combination of simple ingredients that has clearly passed the taste test. A curse because by making a copycat version, you’re likely to take some possible hits in taste and textures by making it a healthier alternative. But maybe you’re one of those people that prefers the taste of Diet Coke over regular Coke? Let’s break down the hits and misses of the Egg White Delight. … continue reading “Review: Egg White Delight from McDonald’s”
