Bizarre but yummy

McDonald's new McGriddle sandwich is being sold all over southern Ontario. Must be the sweet, sweet taste of maple syrup baked right into every pre-branded bite. The Flea takes his first-uptaker status seriously and was at the local McD's for breakfast as soon as the first new item rolled off the menu and on to my tray.

Yummy! In fact, bizarre by yummy. I discovered the bizarre part thanks to a ninja-themed McDonald's ad running on soon-to-be Spike TV. McDonald's Canada has not seen fit to tell the Canadian consumer of the bizarre nature of the McGriddle.

The Flea favourite is a snip at only 420 calories and 23 grams of fat. It's like eating a quarter-pounder with cheese for breakfast!

Jesus I can hear my heart constricting just reading that lot!

One weekend morning my girlfriend Wanda dragged home a McGriddle for me, because the local McD's claimed they were no longer selling the breakfast bagels. I found the new creation to be ridiculously greasy. If I'm going to ingest that much grease for breakfast I'd rather it be in the form of bacon and eggs slapped between the halves of a bagel or english muffin.

I'm glad somebody likes it though; I would hate to think McD's unleashed that thing upon the Earth without doing their market-research homework first.
