I heard that it's one of the worst things you could get for breakfast at McDonald's. I have never eaten it. bleech

The McGriddle is everything wrong with American food in one package. From the pancake that looks like it has mold growing on it, to the entirely dismissible contents, the McGriddle will live as an ignominious reminder of the decline of western civilization.

I love you dearly, but I think you are so terribly mistaken here.

They are disgusting. But so disgusting they're wonderful. It's embarrassing how tasty they are. Shhh.

Jami said...

Oh so good! But it's like admitting you enjoy spam. No one wants to say they eat them. They are, however, selling like hotcakes so someone must be eating them besides you and me.

I like the $1 sausage ones. Sweet and savory. Warm. Excellent texture. mmmm!

Man, now I want one and it's too late. Oh, the suffering.

McGriddle = breakfast version of McRib. i.e. You love them. But it is embarrassing. Because it is essentially two pre-syruped pancakes with pork product wedged between them. You only order them when you are alone in the car, and you hide them at stoplights so that nobody will see.

Gretchen said...

A-freakin-mazing. Sausage is clearly superior.

Stephanie said...

i have issues with pancakes, but i will defend mcdonalds breakfast selection.

egg mcmuffin? delicious. hash brown? even more so.

Mar said...

I love the McGriddle and I'm not afraid to admit it or tell everybody on the internets that I ate them about once a week while I was pregnant. Keep up the good work mickey dees!

I'd like it if not for the drastic after effect the mcgriddle places upon my bowels.

i had one once because todd tried to be a mystery shopper and the one assignment that he got was to get one at mcdonalds. it tasted yummy, but gave me an upset stomach ...

Do you REALLY think that's one of heaven's most glorious creations? I mean, heaven made lots of really great people, like you, me, our husbands, your daughter, etc. Then there are mountains, flowers, jane austen novels, oscar wilde plays, shakespeare, Monet, Matisse, Jackson Pollock, and lots of other glorious creations. And you want to put a fast food product on that list? Hey, I haven't had one in like seven years, so maybe you're right.

La Yen said...

WAY more delicious than Jackson Pollock. It is worth the ensuing IBS.

MSH said...

Well, I used to love them when I was like 15, but I'm not such a fan any more. It takes a big person to absorb all those flavors at once, and I'm just not that big of a man (anymore).

But to the person above me, McGriddles kick the crap out of any Jane Austen novel. I'm pretty sure heaven is crying at the mere suggestion that it is responsible for anything resembling a Jane Austen novel. But to your credit, at least you didn't say Charlotte Bronte.

Hey Gurr,

It's amazing how you managed to generate a whole discussion based upon a post consisting of less than 10 words. Bravo, my friend. Bravo. With regards to the McGriddle...Blech. The End.
