News: McDonald's - New Chicken McBites

New and for a limited time at McDonald's, Chicken McBites is McDonald's own Mc-take on popcorn chicken and feature seasoned and battered bite-sized chicken breast chunks.

They're available in three sizes: Snack (3 ounces), Regular (4.5 ounces), and Sharable (10 ounces).

You can expect Chicken McBites to be around for about 3 months so you can expect to find them until about early to mid April.

  1. These are very good, actually comparable to KFC's old Popcorn Chicken that were more crunchy than the current ones.

    Anyway, I first tried Chicken McBites when I had McDonald's coupons mailed to me. I bought the sharable size(large) and it amazed me. There were lots of chicken, freshly made, crunchy, and each McBite was decently sized with chicken inside the batter.

    My first impression was that it is pretty much the same as McDonald's Chicken Strips, however, you get way more chicken for just $4.99 compared to 3 or 5 pieces of Chicken Strips, I thought it was a steal.

    So I ordered it couple more times, very satisfied every time. My orders were all fresh and good sized McBites. I fell in love with it so I ordered it everyday, then it all went down hills. McBites I get right now are super small, most of them small than a penny with no chicken at all, it's all batter and breadcrumbs. Worst of all, it looked like it has been cooked million times, just like all the Chicken Strips they make.

  2. I'm a pretty big fan of KFC's popcorn chicken, I gotta try these to compare.

  3. Tried these 3 times, but each time they tasted like they had been sitting around for a long time and were kind of crappy. I bet they'd be way better fresh.

  4. I had these they were good and they smelled awesome though my issue was the some was only breading but it was only a few so still good enough and i had the regular size for $3.29

  5. I finally tried these tonight. My experience was in between your good and bad reviews, maybe a little closer to Vinyl's below. I thought they were pretty similar to KFC's popcorn chicken, but a little better in terms of seasoning and the freshness of the chicken. As for the bites that were mostly breading, there were some, but the majority were fine.
