sucker


Just for the record I don't eat fast food. Every once in a great while I will have the 'hangover' burger to ease the pain or I'll stop for some fries and a chicken sandwich on a road trip simply because I'm in the need of some protein, but basically I avoid the fast food frenzy and stick to good old fashioned turkey sandwiches when I'm out and about.

I'm sure you've seen the ads lately for that new Southern Chicken Sandwich at McDonald's, I sure have... I do like the chicken sandwich, the grilled, the breaded, the little nuggets- you know, they're tasty. So when this new thing came out I must say I was slightly intrigued. Southern Chicken Sandwich?, what does that mean- it's got gravy on it? I was confused, and still am. So today (and today only) McDonald's is offering a free Southern Chicken Sandwich when you purchase a drink. I'm actually thinking I may have to step or drive into a McDonald's today just to taste the thing! They're doing everything but delivering it to me- and to top it all off, the thing only has pickles on it! I love those pickles.
I'm doing it, I'm in...

Sorry t2!

Shit sassyfemme- my review will be this weekend. Since I am so not used to going to McDonalds, the one I walked to today to get my sandwich had closed! I had no idea- I just stood there in front of a blank wall where it used to be and looked around as if I were dreaming. It's close to where I work but I haven't actually been in years! I was so upset that I couldn't get it. But Sat is the day for sure... I'll let you know.

I live mere steps from a McDonalds and I have yet to try one. I like pickles ok, but the pickles on this sammie turns me off a bit.

I'd be interested in your take. I wonder what makes this sam different from their other (non grilled) chicken.

I sure hope not kelly...

Definately shea! Hope it was grand

only daughter, I'll tell you what makes it different is the actual piece of chicken. I've never tasted a juicer, tastier piece from any McDonalds-ever. The breading is not thick at all, the pickles just right and the bun is excellent. In two words: soft and juicy. It could have used some mayo but it is what it is and if you're looking for a solid piece of chicken on a butter soft bun then this is it.It's weird because it's so plain but I kind of what another one... I guess that's advertising for you-and I'm a sucker for it. Go get one.
