Ready For A Spicy New Sauce And Sandwich At McDonald’s? (Photos)


By Cooking Panda

McDonald’s has unveiled a sandwich with kale and Sriracha sauce. Wait, is it 2013? Nope, they’re just a few years late to the trend game.

And people are eating it up.

The chain’s Sriracha Mac Sauce, a creamy condiment combining McDonalds’ iconic Big Mac Sauce with spicy Sriracha, will be available to pimp out your sandwiches and sides for a limited time in July.

Catch a glimpse of the sauce below, where it is spread on the new Signature Sriracha sandwich with crispy onions, baby spinach and kale, tomato and white cheddar. Customers may enjoy the spicy spread on their choice of bun with a beef patty, buttermilk crispy chicken or “Artisan” grilled chicken, according to Eater.

And that’s not all. The sauce can be used for delectable dipping with foods like fries and McNuggets.

If you’re really feeling indulgent, you could pull an In-N-Out animal-style trick by pouring the Sriracha sauce over McDonalds’ new loaded bacon cheese fries. The spiciness of the sauce would cut through the creaminess of the cheese and the saltiness of the bacon for a sinful but scrumptious snack. 

Can’t imagine how the sauce might taste? Think about it this way. Big Mac Sauce is a blend of mayonnaise, yellow mustard, sweet pickle relish, white wine vinegar, onion powder, garlic powder and paprika, as McDonalds’ executive chef explained in this video. It’s similar in flavor to a Thousand Island dressing, so picture that with a spicy Sriracha kick.

While the sauce and sandwich aren’t new — they debuted in select stores in 2016, according to Teen Vogue — this is the first time they’ll be available nationwide (and the first time you can order the special sauce on the side). 

Want to order the new foods without leaving your couch? If you live in Los Angeles, Chicago, Columbus, Ohio, or Phoenix, you can, as Mickey D’s expanded its delivery service with UberEATS to more than 1,000 locations across the country.

Once you’ve loaded up on Sriracha Mac Sauce, cool your tongue off with the candy-rich Rolo McFlurry, finally back from a five-year hiatus, or this cold and creamy McDonald’s hack: the McFlurry ice cream sandwich.

Fiance Goals: Man Proposes With Chicken Nuggets


By Cooking Panda

Food is a girl’s best friend. Just ask pizza, tacos, ice cream and …chicken nuggets. This guy was smart enough to know that, so take notes!

Lots of people get engaged on Valentine’s Day. What better time is there? But not everyone proposes with chicken nuggets. Popsugar reports that Kristian Helton proposed to his new fiance Karsyn with a box of chicken nuggets from McDonald’s. He put the ring into a nugget and wrote “Will you McMarry Me?” in the lid of the box. How adorable!

“She has devoted her life to chicken nuggets, so that had to be part of the engagement I mean it was just given,” Kristian told WAND 17 News. Karsyn reportedly goes to McDonald’s regularly, but only to get those McNuggets. I guess that’s what devoting your life to chicken nuggets means. Those other menu items don’t even get a second glance. Poor Big Mac.

The couple met in July of 2015 and exchanged numbers, then started dating the very next day. I wonder what their first meal together was. Probably not chicken nuggets. However, after two years of dating Karsyn says her “yes” was a no-brainer; “… he is obviously the one I want to spend my life with,” she said.

“I put the ring in the chicken nugget box, and I used the chicken nugget box as a ring box, then wrote ‘will you McMarry me’ in it and she was excited…I think more excited about the chicken nuggets,” Kristian explained.

Gentlemen, if you’re stressing over how to propose to your lady, consider her favorite foods. Does she love pizza? Great, it comes in a box already so write your message and stick a ring in there. Does she love ice cream? Make her a yummy dessert and put that ring on top. You don’t have to be too creative, just give her what she loves! “If you have a chicken nugget loving girlfriend then that’s how you should propose to her,” Kristian says. Take it from him. She said yes!

My ring better come in the top of a Big Mac, that’s all I have to say.
