Hot on the heels of the Tastes of America Promotions, now sadly gone, no more New York burgers :( McDonalds has released it's new range of Chicken Burgers, the McChamp, the McSpicy and the McGrilled.
I decided to try the McChamp first, a crumbed chicken burger served with lettuce, tomato relish and a garlic mayo served on a wheatgerm bun.
I'm not sure if this is the way it is meant to be served, but the two sauces were completely separate, covering half of the burger each.
The crunchy chicken breast was fantastic, not necessarily better than the wonderfully processed chicken burger of the McChicken, but great in its own right. I wonder if the separation of the sauces tainted my experience though, the garlic mayo was delicious and I happily chomped through this half of the burger. On the other hand, I didn't really like the relish side, the relish having a tomato paste-type taste to it. Towards the end, I did try to get a bite with both sauces, it improved the relish taste but I would rather just have the whole burger drowned in the special mayo.
Rating: Overall great burger, one good sauce, one average sauce (or a slightly better than average mixture of two sauces), 7/10
