It is always a nice morning when the sun is out, the morning air has a chill to it, to be out jogging. Then, to step into a warm restaurant to grab a bite to refuel is just wonderful.
I had a voucher for the Fruit & Maple Oatmeal but silly me forgot to use it. This had always tasted great. I love the oatmeal mixed with apples, cranberries, raisins, and brown sugar; it is ever so sweet yet refreshing. The tart apples were especially good, adding a much needed crunch. Unfortunately, the server did not stir it properly so the fruits were not spread out evenly.
It was National Parfait Day so I got the Fruit ‘n Yogurt Parfait, which was a lot better than I had expected. The yogurt was sweet and tasted lightly of artificial vanilla flavour. It was not too overpowering that it became bad, though. The Nature Valley granola was not enough to add a crunch to the whole parfait. The berries in the sweetened syrup was good, though. I loved the strawberries and blueberries in particular.
The Sausage McGriddles were so simple. The griddle cakes were good with syrup inside. It is like a pancake but you can eat more of it because it is not so cloyingly sweet. The sausage patty was savoury and very nicely spiced. Sweet and savoury paired nicely together.
The Sausage McMuffin with Egg was also good. Together with the Sausage McGriddles, they cost only $3, such a great value. The egg was slightly charred on the edge but I really enjoyed it regardless, especially the whites. The cheese was decent, just like any other slice of McDonald’s cheese, melted into the sandwich. The sausage added more flavour. The English muffin was nicely toasted, soft yet chewy and slightly tough.
Later in the day, I decided to get Chicken McNuggets, something I have not had in a long time. By accident, they gave me seven pieces instead of six. They were hot with a nice crunchy exterior. However, the chicken inside seemed too tender compared to the quality of the batter to seem like completely chicken breast meat. They were still welcoming since I have not had them for years.
The McDouble was rather simple: two very thin patties, a slice of cheese, onions, relish, ketchup, and mustard on a burger bun. It was literally just a Cheeseburger with an extra patty. The patties were rather dry and left out too long. The mixed flavours of the simple condiments was generic yet never bad.
