|The McLobster Meal @ McDonalds|
On March 3 2011, McDonalds made the big announcement on Twitter, saying:
“Despite all the rumors there r no plans 2 bring mclobster or mcsushi 2 the US menu. We r working on a new menu item called McWinning.”
Sorry to all of you who from Maine, who are craving the McLobster. And to be honest, I would give it a try, if it was reasonably priced.
|McSushi Meal @ McDonalds|
But as for sushi, I would not go to McDonalds for McSushi. Let's just say I am particular about sushi. I have a sushi place in Huntsville [Miyako] - and in my opinion - it does the best chicken teriyaki sushi around. Couple this with a sushi special on Monday nights that offers the best price on sushi, and you get a winner. Or should I say: "Winning!" Plus, I don't know any other place around here that even does chicken teriyaki sushi right. I asked for it once at the Chinese buffet, and the language barrier was the first obstacle to getting what I really wanted. He set my plate in the "ready to go" area and I came back to my table with fried shrimp in a rice roll covered in some strange sauce, and I can safely say that I did not order whatever I was given.
Arbys Twitter is trying to capitalize off of this rumor as well, tweeting: "Want a McLobster? Didn’t think so..." followed by a coupon for one of their sandwiches.
I am not a big fan of Arbys, even since Snopes claims that their meat does not start out in liquid form - to which I had been curious about for quite some time. You can read about that here. Even if their meat isn't trans-meat-erized from liquid to solid, I still don't know if I can trust them. My trust has to be earned.
But you know they say there is some truth to rumors, so it makes me wonder if McDonalds really had such a sandwich in the works and it was axed at the last minute. The world may never know...
