The 12 Chicken Burger from McDonald’s is their new take on premium chicken.  They got rid of the CBO and replaced with the 12, which McDonald’s has tagged “A Fresh New Take on Lunch”.  It comes in crispy or grilled but all the promo pictures and signs show the grilled version front and center, so […]

Call me a sucker, but I am always happy to try another bacon cheeseburger and A&W rarely does a poor job.  The new Peppered Bacon Burger comes in Mama, Papa and Grandpa sized with 1, 2 or 3 patties respectively.  Its comes with A&W’s new peppered bacon, roasted garlic and chili aioli, grilled onions and a […]

I am a big caramel fan, so I was excited to see Timmies new caramel promotion.  They have a new Chocolate Caramel Donut and Muffin and for drinks Caramel Hot Chocolate and Iced Cap.  I don’t drink hot chocolate, and its the still the tail end of the goddamn winter, so I won’t be getting and iced […]

Tim Hortons has really been pushing new products across all their product lines.  They have had a selection of new muffins and donuts, new variations on their crispy chicken sandwich, a brand new pulled pork sandwich, and most recently, the Croissant Sausage Breakfast sandwich.  You have your choice of sausage or bacon.  Its comprised of […]

Wendy’s recently released their new Premium Lemonade in two flavours, traditional and strawberry.  It seemed a little odd to see a summer-y drink like lemonade come out in in the middle of the canadian weather.  But who knows, maybe they are just trying to give us a little taste of summer during the long ol’ […]

So I saw these at the local gas station and was surprised to see these and some Wasabi Ginger Lay’s Kettle Cooked.  I didn’t know their was a new Lay’s Do Us A Flavour promotion going on, but I am always happy to see new chips flavours on the shelf.  After checking around online, these seem […]

The Italian McTasters is the second in McDonald’s new McTasters collection.  The Italian is based on a jr. chicken patty as opposed to the beef Greek option which we already reviewed here.  This sandwich also beat with the same “premium value” stick as its built around the cheap but peppery and delicious jr. chicken patty and has […]

McDonald’s is trying to hit a very special area on the menu, the premium value segment.  The Greek McTasters is based on the standard hamburger beef patty, but it has a fancy bun, fancy cheese and sauce, and is even graced with a slice of tomato.  McDonald’s is pulling out all the stops with these ones.

Driving by McDonald’s yesterday I saw the sign for the new McTasters.  I am always hungry for a new burger.  They are both mini premium sandwiches, one chicken, one beef, on a ciabatta style bun, each inspired by a different country.  There is an Italian chicken and Greek beef option. McDonald’s describes the Italian McTasters […]

When I drove by A&W and saw the sign for the Chicken Buddy Burger I was intrigued.  I am a big fan of the regular Buddy Burger, so knew I had to see what other buddy A&W had come up with.  This has a buddy chicken patty, pickles, mayonnaise on the soft small bun.  Like […]
