McDonalds Chicken Select Tenders Review

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

McDonalds Select Tenders ReviewApparently, this product was around before, I wasn’t aware of it.  It’s back for an LTO in another attempt from McDonalds to win back old customers or win new ones.  The Chicken Select Tenders are described by the company as “Our juicy Chicken Select Tenders are made of 100% chicken tenderloin and are seasoned to perfection. Try them with your choice of flavorful dipping sauces.”  Sauce choices include ranch, buffalo, honey, sweet and sour, honey mustard, bbq, or habanero.  I passed on sauces in order to get the full benefit of tasting the product.

They come three to an order for $2.99 plus tax, so a buck a piece.  The first thing I noticed was the tenders are notably smaller than the ones appear to be in the television advertising.  They are certainly much smaller than some competitors.

On my “tenders smackdown” tour of the south last year, I developed some strong leanings towards favorites, for sure.  Had McDonalds been offering the Selects at the time, I would have included them, but they wouldn’t have made my top five.

I guess they are one of those products that you just sigh and say “it is what it is.”  In other words, they qualify as “OK.”   I don’t think they are a very good value, and “seasoned to perfection” is up for debate, and they seem to be devoid of seasoning, except for a little black pepper in the breading.

LTO means “Limited time offer” and that they won’t be around forever. And that’s fine with me.

How Is McDonalds Food Made?

Some people are concerned about the ingredients in McDonalds food. So McDonalds Canada started doing videos ‘behind the scenes’ and this marketing effort has now come to the U.S. If you haven’t seen the videos, they are pretty interesting. Here are a few of them.

McDonald’s Fish McBites

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Couple weeks ago, I wrote a piece about being done with McDonald’s because of my continuing disappointment with their food.  Sometimes they get you whether you want them to or not, in being the only place open, the only place around, the only place with unlocked bathrooms (or free wifi).

My kid and I were joking about Fish McBites, and I said I wasn’t brave enough to try them, but we did.  They come in three sizes, accompanied by a small ramekin of tartar sauce, not sure if this is a limited time offer or not, possibly, some Lenten tie-in.

They aren’t “bad” per se, they have a stronger fish taste (to me) than the McFishawicheroo, and the tartar appears the same as the sandwich.  My particular order (and this was out in the middle of nowhere…no idea what state even, Missouri, Arkansas…..weren’t quite ‘done’ I suspect.  Al dente Fish bites.

Interesting to me, as it was the same week Wendy’s asked me to try their new Premium North Pacific Cod sandwich, and I pronounced that the best fish offering in fast food.  Why don’t you try both and let us know what you think?  The Wendy’s deal is an LTO.

The Burger Wars Start Sizzlin’

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

McDonald’s launches Angus, Carl’s and Hardee’s take umbrage. An article in the WSJ yesterday chronicles the marketing efforts of these three as they attempt to garner a larger share of the large burger market. Feeling that the McD angus was a copycat of CKE’s (Carl Karcher Enterprises, parent company of both Carl’s Jr and Hardees), Carl’s took aim on Wednesday to introduce the Big Carl, a direct snub at the Big Mac. The Big Carl contains more than two times as much beer as the Big Mac, and at a lower price point. The Big Carl will be backed by a television campaign that will poke fun at both the competitor’s sandwich and their marketing methods.

In September, Carl’s Jr. will have a campaign to issue refunds to people who claim they like Big Mac’s better. They will also employ a guerrilla marketing strategy of having a mobile unit outside McDonald’s in Los Angeles and offering to trade diners their Big Macs for Big Carl’s.

Hardees continues to push its Thickburger line, which is also “Angus” beef. The largest thickburger is the Monster entry, at 1420 calories, compared to McD’s bacon and cheese Angus, which is a mere 790 calories.
