McDonald's Sweet Chili Sauce

mcdsweetchili.jpgI've always been susceptible to advertising, which probably helps explain my love of fast food and candy. During this year's Winter Olympics, I have probably seen the McDonald's promotion for their new Sweet Chili Sauce a couple dozen times. The commercial mentions how this sauce is what all the athletes in the Olympic Village are eating with their McNuggets. I guess McDonald's wants to introduce a flavor with a bold and international appeal. So today I obeyed the ads and went out to try this sauce for myself. Now, McDonald's isn't really known for spicy flavors, and I was worried that this sauce was gonna be all sweet and no heat. Thankfully, all my fears were allayed after my first dip. McDonald's has made a sauce that tastes exactly like the sweet chili sauce semi-fancy Chinese restaurants serve with spring rolls; sweet, but with a very nice pepper/vinegar burn to it. It's a shame this is a limited time only item, because it blows every other dipping sauce out of the water. The only downside is the relatively small amount of sauce you're given, so make sure to ask for two. McNuggets have never tasted better. Congratulations McDonalds, this is a gold medal winner.

Phoood rating: Outstanding!

Ben is on the money! It is the best! And McD's would be wise to keep this one - it is also great on the sausage burrito.

mOST eXCELLENT Dude! you can buy bottles of this sauce cheap at any asian store, it's EVERYWHERE in the rest of the world --even the Irish have thai sweet chili flavored potato chips, which are the best! Mick D's didn't invent it...if you wanna die and go to nom nom heaven, the best pizza bone sauce is a papa jon's garlic butter tub mixed with equal part thai sweet chili sauce, nuke for a few secs to warm it up...you'll be fighting for crust to dunk in this.
