Spicy Snake burger? Hell no!
Around 7ish, the staff at MacDonalds started giving out packets of shaker fries. It’s not just any shaker fries. It’s fries with their new flavour of seasoning – Citrus Thai. Besides the new seasoning, I was noticed something which was new to me – there’s a photo of a peeled potato on the Mac Fries’ packaging. Indeed, the new packaging signalled something new in its fries. The fries no longer have that oily brown sheen it used to have. Instead, the fries now tasted softer and has a stronger fresh potato cut taste. To me, it tasted more like premium fries where the potato string cuts are now more evenly fried and it’s definitely cooked with less oil and salt now than before.
A bag of shaker fries, anyone?
Spicy factor? Mild.
All of us were definitely caught off guard when the two men decked in some kind of chef uniform came up with a little skit for MacDonald’s Spicy Face Off campaign.
Spicy factor: High
Your senses will be fully awakened by the time you dive in for the third or subsequent bites.
However, the spices used in marinating the chicken is a little too choking for me. It’s flaming hot but I still enjoy the Black Pepper Flamer more. I would say that the Black Pepper Flamer has a more exquisite taste than any other McBurgers, really. It’s almost like restaurant-standard if there were pieces of rocket salads and tomatoes stuffed into it.

There’s something really Asian about this menu, isn’t it?
