McDonald's is trialling 'Blueberry McGriddles' breakfast sandwiches
The McGriddle is the perfect combination of sweet pancake carbs and savoury breakfast meat proteins. With its release, McDonald's changed on-the-go breakfast. You don't have to decide if you want something yummy or that will keep you full. And now, they're upping their game half a step.
At select McDonald's in Washington, D.C., the fast-food chain is releasing three different blueberry McGriddle sandwiches for all-day breakfast. The culinary innovation teams created new options after they surveyed customers who said they wanted a breakfast option that they could crave every morning.
Choose the Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Blueberry McGriddles Breakfast Sandwich if you're a fan of the classic McGriddle. If you prefer other breakfast meats, the Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Blueberry McGriddles Breakfast Sandwich is for you. And if you're anti-egg and cheese, opt for the Sausage McGriddles Breakfast Sandwich. Simple, yet delicious.
Carol Martino, Culinary Innovation Spokesperson for McDonald’s USA, shared the logic behind the creation:
“The flavors from the real blueberries balanced with the sweet taste of maple, reminds me of the blueberry pancakes my mother used to make for us growing up. Imagine that combined with your choice of sizzling breakfast sausage or thick cut bacon nestled under a creamy slice of American cheese and fluffy egg. It’s everything you love about breakfast in one sandwich.”
I'll have to try the new sandwiches before I'm completely convinced. It's one thing to have a full out, buffet breakfast with some pancakes and a side of eggs with sausage or bacon. It's entirely different when you chow them all down together in one bite.
I guess we'll have to wait and see how the Capital's trials go before we have the option to try this all-in-one creation. Until then, have fun eating your breakfast foods separately.
