McDonald's Fish McBites are bite-sized pieces of Alaskan Pollock, breaded in a seasoned blend flour and corn meal, then deep fried.

A snack-size portion cost $2.29 at my local McDonald's.

I'll preface this review by saying, I don't really eat/like fish, but I ate this for the blog.

Each Fish McBite is about the width of a quarter and are overall plumper, bigger, and more uniform than the chicken version.

The breading on these weren't too greasy and had a nice crunch to them. It was very lightly seasoned though without much flavor coming through. There's a little more texture and crunch to these than the breading you find on a Filet-O-Fish (As I look at the picture I took, I'm imaging cheese in the middle of each bite... mmm...)

Inside each piece was a moist and delicately tender piece of whitefish. I was really surprised at how soft and smooth the meat was. Like the breading, there's not too much flavor to it save for the slightest bit of a fishy aftertaste. With the decidedly light flavors, these were definitely meant to be dipped.

Overall, I found McDonald's Fish McBites to be a superior product to last year's Chicken McBites. The pieces of fish came in decent chunks and I didn't find any pieces that were pure batter. Also, the fish is much more tender and juicy than the any pieces of chicken I got in the Chicken McBites. If I actually liked fish, these's a fair bit to like here.

If you like fish, these might be worth a try. They are a little pricey for a snack, but you can always wait until the $1 promotion.
