Food News: McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish now 99 cents
Just in time for Lent: McDonald’s is now offering the Filet-O-Fish sandwich for just .99 cents in select markets. I’m not a huge fan of fish sandwiches, but even I couldn’t pass up a great deal on this American icon while out to lunch on Friday. With its perfectly square white fish filet, half a slice of semi-melted American cheese, and soft and squishy bun, even it’s small size can’t obscure its curiously addicting taste. I’m partial to mine with ketchup as opposed to tarter sauce, but at just a buck each you can get yours anyway you want.
Normally the Filet-o-Fish retails in the 3 dollar neighborhood – a ridiculous price for such a small sandwich is you ask me. But it’s one of the better value menu deals out there at only a buck, and is also being offered as part of a medium sized extra value meal at $3.99.
Also for Lent, McDonald’s is marketing it’s Double Filet-O-Fish in select markets. The price wasn’t being advertised at my local Micky D’s when I stopped in on Friday, but the ads have been up around town.
