So on our way back from Chicago today, Lori and I stopped at McDonald's to try their new Fruit & Walnut Salad, which actually looks pretty good on the billboards. The ad copy on their website sounds pretty tasty too:
McDonald's Fruit & Walnut Salad
So it was with no small amount of gusto that Lori dove into the bag to revel in the fruity goodness. She came up a little disappointed.
Here's a close-up of what the bag promises:
Here's what actually was in the bag (besides a miniscule cup of yogurt about the size of those little paper cups you put ketchup in):
A few of the apple slices were pretty mangy looking, so we tossed those. Also, there was none of the candied walnuts featured so prominently in the name of this dish. Are they supposed to be in the bowl, or do they come in a separate little baggie, or what? Oh, and where's the darn green fork we're supposed to get?
For $2.99, my expectations weren't exactly high, but it looks like McDonald's, at least the store in East Nowhere, Indiana we visited, needs a little work on its fruit execution. At least they trademarked yet another insipid catchphrase.
