If you’re like me, your breakfast game is a little weak. Since you’re probably rushing out the door because you hit snooze four-too-many times, your breakfast options probably consist of a shitty “Donut Shop” k-cup and whatever leftovers you have in your fridge that you can eat without taking the necessary 45 seconds to microwave them. Mmmm, cold leftover Chinese takeout. Alternatively, if you leave on time, you may be able to make it through a drive-thru, but with the limited number of options and the amount of time it takes to get through the Chick-fil-A line, I pretty much just give up until lunch.
However, this is all about to change. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I might actually be looking forward to stopping at McDonald’s before heading off to my sad little cubicle, because the monster franchise has started testing a Chicken McGriddle at their Ohio locations, and it actually looks amazing. The new sandwich will feature Chick-fil-A look-alike fried chicken between two pancakey, syrup-filled McGriddle patties, and I’m sad to say that just writing that sentence made my mouth start to water. We’re going to have all of the class of your $14 local chicken-and-waffles with all of the convenience of a drive-thru and a Dollar Menu, and I couldn’t be more thrilled.
No word yet on when these will be added to the national menu, but after how quickly they were able to add mozzarella sticks after their test period, I doubt it will be too long. I can’t imagine how many greasy calories will be in this contraption, so unfortunately, I don’t see this as an everyday breakfast option, but you’d better believe I’m trying this out for what will hopefully be my new go-to Sunday hangover meal.
