Have you stopped by McDonald’s lately? You should.
There are a lot of new things happening with McDonald’s. From the cool new additions on the My McD’s McDonald’s app to the fantastic Create Your Taste table service burger experience. It is definitely worth a trip. If you have a smart phone take a few minutes to download the new McDonald’s app before you head out. To download the app search My McD’s or McDonald’s Canada in the Apple or Android App Stores.
The app has a plethora of information and setting up an account is super easy. Once your account is set up you can explore all the app has to offer. It has the nutritional information for all the menu items to help you make more informed decisions. It will show you where the closest McDonald’s locations are. And best of all, there are Mobile Offers to save you money when you are eating on the go! You can redeem mobile offers at the drive thru, the front counter and at the kiosks.
There is also something new happening at McDonald’s that you MUST check out. You have probably seen the commercials for the new table service burger experience called Create Your Taste. Using the kiosk you build your burger from scratch, starting with the bun or lettuce wrap, through the amazing list of condiments to the fantastic toppings, like caramelized or crispy fried onions to sauted mushrooms, guacamole or the spectacular sundried tomato pesto (seriously try the pesto, they should sell it by the jar!) You can add additional paddies, each one a 1/3 pound of Angus Alberta beef and bacon to finish it off. The kiosk makes it very easy to create your burger and you have options for the sides, like poutine, regular McDonald’s fries or salad.
Once your order is placed and paid for you take a tracker and head to your table.
Your order is now being prepared in a special Create Your Taste section of the kitchen and will be brought to your table along with your drinks.
I have to say the burgers are fantastic! You really have to try it. These are not the McDonald’s burgers the you have had I the past. I have had the opportunity to try the Create Your Taste experienced twice now, once at a Gastropost Outpost event when they rolled out the program and once last week. The new Create Your Taste burger is comparable to the big box sit down restaurant burgers…..only better. Seriously, I can’t say enough about it, tasting is believing.
If you are on Instagram do a quick search of the #createyourtasteCA hashtag to see how creative people are getting with their burgers.
