Thanks to The Fast Food Maven for making The McChronicles aware of this interesting story.

According to a report from CBS News:

"A baby was born in a Washington state McDonald's restroom and the mother didn't know she was pregnant."

The story goes on to reveal that the mother :

"... was working the night shift and ... suddenly ran into the restroom feeling ill."

McSkillet Burritos: evaluated

The McChronicles mused about the new McSkillet Burrito. Then, Michael Schroeder gave us the 411 on how good they are. Moved to action, The McChronicles travelled to Sarasota, Florida to sample this promising breakfast fare.

But first, the Sarasota McDonald's:

Store #: 5983
Address: 787 S. Washington Blvd, Sarasota, FL, 34239
Owner/Operator: Bob & Joan Davies
Store Manager: Heidi Martino
Time: 7:54AM

Pulling into the parking lot it was fun to see the store's windows being washed. The grounds were tidy and bright.

Walking in revealed a very typical, nothing special layout. The dining room has an old car theme, with a few basic pictures on the walls. Nothing special.

The Sandwich:
When asked about the popularity of the McSkillet Burrito, the counter person was unable or unwilling to converse in English. She turned the situation over to a manager. The manager confirmed that the breakfast sandwich is, indeed both very tasty and very popular.

The McChronicles ordered both an Egg McMuffin (control) and the McSkillet Burrito (experiment).

Bottom line, compared to the old standard (Egg McMuffin), the McSkillet Burrito is flavorful, exciting, tasty, moist, and very hearty.

A caloric or nutritional comparison was not made. Info anyone?

McSkillet Burrito

The McChronicles was enjoying a "welcome home" lunch at McDonald's with a friend and noticed the ad (on the cup) for the new McSkillet Burrito.

We have not, yet, had the pleasure of trying this sandwich. Any opinions to share out there?
