News: McDonald's Testing Fish McBites

McDonald's is testing a fish version of their Chicken McBites: Fish McBites out in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and a couple of other market according to the Huffington Post.

Fish McBites feature breaded, bite-sized pieces of Alaskan Pollock and come with tartar sauce for dipping.

As to how they look and taste? One critic from the Dallas Observer (who happens to be a fan of the Filet-O-Fish) did not have such great things to say. Among his comment were this statement: "...I can say with a large degree of confidence that Fish McBites are the worst things McDonald's has created in some time."

  1. Pollock tends to not possess much taste of its own and, akin to tofu, best utilized as a purveyor of taste for other ingredients.

    Baked with no breading pollock makes a healthy meal.

    Bland and boring it cries out for embellishments such as your favorite spices.

    IF McD can spice the finny friend in a manner pleasing to the consumer then all should be fine.

    But, the breading also needs to be added in a pleasing-to-the-biter manner along with the already-mentioned "proper" seasoning.

    That is 2 requirements thus 1 too many for a mainstream mass-market fast-food joint so I would have advised the marketing department to look elsewhere for a new concoction to lure the emotion- and lard-laden masses into McDs.

    The general desperation of the fast-food joints becomes more obvious daily.
