McDonald’s Blazing Omelette McMuffin – what the hell?

As well as adding the Smoky BBQ Bandit and Scorcher Peri Peri burgers to its new “Summer Menu” lineup, McDonald’s has added the “Blazing Omelette McMuffin” to its breakfast offerings.

The muffin is tantalisingly described as a spicy jalapeno and tasty cheese omelette with an “intense blast” of buffalo sauce. There’s no qualification on what “buffalo” is , but I guessed it would be a hot sauce rather than a beefy one. Sounds awesome. (and before you write and abuse me, I know what “buffalo wings” are)

The first thing that struck me was how small this thing was, and unlike the other new burgers it came in generic wrapping they use for people who custom order stupid things, like a cheeseburger with no meat or cheese.

Seriously McDonald’s, are you taking the piss? What little there is of this thing tastes of NOTHING. And that’s chewy nothing, thank you very much. After reading how they (supposedly) spent 18 months developing the new lamb burgers, you wonder how the hell something as awful as this makes it to the menu. Surely nobody in their right mind looked and this, ate one and said “ah yes, here’s the magical new taste of summer”.

Atrocious. ‘Nuff said.

  • You can tell this would be fail just by looking at the menu picture. I don’t know what they were thinking either. McDonalds USA has some great breakfast options, yet they choose to bring out the dumbest things here. Personally I don’t go to Maccas for bagels with AVOCADO (blasphemy) and I still can’t get over that one. Can I expect a review on the new Oreo sundae? (btw, I was quite horrified when I read in your other post that you don’t really like fries – I like your blog so will let that one slide but I hope I never read anything that shocking again).

  • I’ll report on the Oreo Sundae when I can – I expect it’s going to look like an ash tray. As for fries, I’m willing to be impressed (and thoroughly enjoy) if they’re really good but it’s just not one of my favourite things. I rarely order them from Maccas or HJs.
