Gene Weingarten, writing in the Washington Post about online news stories and the accompanying readers' comments: "I basically like 'comments,' though they can seem a little jarring: spit-flecked rants that are appended to a product that at least tries for a measure of objectivity and dignity. It's as though when you order a sirloin steak, it comes with a side of maggots."

“..the collision of tastes and textures..”  It was sour and sweet and savory. I could taste the flavors of carsickness." 

Definitely yum.

For what it's worth, McD's has been messing around with Oreos for years (I see the ads in the store windows), but I've never seen this application. Spam is not common here - I've only ever seen it in one store, once upon a time.

To my great amusement the Chinese name is pronounced Shi-bang!

But I have never been inside a McDonald's and I am certainly not a member.


Sorry, with the travel ban and all there is no way I make it in time. So we need to count on you to take one for the team. McD in China delivers, as far as I remember - so no need to step into the lion’s den 👍
 

So please just get that burger and give us an unbiased review (unlike that fake news outlet, that even US presidents disapprove of ...).

Now, is that a fare request?  Who wants that flavor memory?  I do give them props for being curious and having brave palates.  I know people who won't, and will never, eat fish or salad. 

That wasn't chicken

Yes, but you are also well known to be a people pleaser, so I will continue to try ... 😜
