The feedback is in from the Shakin’ Flavor event at the Wilmington Pike McDonald’s last Monday. The VIP guests at the Food Adventure were given Mcdonald’s swag and asked to test the flavors for themselves. We found patrons loved all three flavors CHIPOTLE BBQ, GARLIC PARMESAN, and ZESTY RANCH. It seemed the favorite this night was Zesty Ranch.
DID YOU KNOW?
Fast Food executives have long known that the Dayton area is much more inclined to give new fast food products an initial try. Much more than the conservative tastebuds of Cincinnati or even Columbus. That is why in Dayton, we see many test products here before they go national. In other words, Dayton is an open minded, foodie town full of feed back (applaud yourselves).
HERE’S THE SKINNY on SHAKIN’ FLAVORS:
— McDonald’s new Shakin’ Flavor product is a free packet of seasonings that will be an option with any Chicken McNugget order or large French Fry order. Your choice of flavor is CHIPOTLE BBQ, GARLIC PARMESAN, or ZESTY RANCH
— A extra “shakin” bag is given to the customer and a powdered packet, and the rest is simple. Dump the fries or McNuggets into the bag, and then the seasoning. Close the bag and shake it like a pom-pom. The result is pretty evenly seasoned fries or nuggets. For more even results, after shaking, we suggest laying the bag flat and tearing open rather than dumping the food out of the bag.
This is a great distraction for kids. Hungry Jax found her children caught up in the excitement, and loved it as much as the yogurt in the kid’s meal.
The Big Ragu loved the Chipotle BBQ and Garlic Parmesan. It brought a new dimension to the nuggets and fries
Experiment with your own tastes, but we found a couple faves’ you gotta try.
— CHIPOTLE BBQ NUGGETS DIPPED IN BBQ SAUCE
— ZESTY RANCH FRENCH FRIES
— GARLIC PARMESAN NUGGETS DIPPED IN RANCH SAUCE
Get to select Golden Arches and shake things up. Not every McDonald’s has them, but they are worth a try. They bake ’em, you shake ’em, your flavor, make sure you savor !
Peace out to Ronald McDonald and the crew for their hospitality and the revolving videos showing how nuggets and burgers are made.
