With it being football season, McDonald’s Singapore has introduced the Hawaiian Grilled Chicken Burger and Smoky BBQ Chicken Burger. We gave it a try to see if both the burgers are any good.

As we unwrapped the burger, we couldn’t help but think about how flat it looked. We enjoy the pineapple in McDonald’s Buttermilk Crispy Chicken but somehow, it didn’t seem to work that well in McDonald’s Hawaiian Grilled Chicken Burger. The pineapple and the ham seemed to just disassemble from the rest of the burger as we bit into it.

The spicy mayonnaise added a bit of flavour but overall, to us, it was a strange flavour combination.


McDonald’s Smoky BBQ Chicken Burger

We moved on to the McDonald’s Smoky BBQ Chicken Burger hoping for something better. This burger has a battered chicken patty with BBQ chipotle sauce, chicken bacon, melted cheese, tomato and lettuce, all between a dark malt bun.

Unfortunately, it didn’t quite hit the mark for us. We could barely taste the BBQ chipotle sauce and, overall, we found the sandwich rather dry and unsatisfying.

What’s going on, McDonald’s? We had really enjoyed the Laksa Burger but this was far from that level.

Perhaps you can try the McDonald’s Hawaiian Grilled Chicken Burger and Smoky BBQ Chicken Burger for yourself and see if you agree with our taste test.

For this season, McDonald’s Singapore has also introduced the Potato Pops. These are available at $4.20 a box or as part of a meal with the Hawaiian Grilled Chicken Burger or Smoky BBQ Chicken Burger.

The Potato Pops are basically tater tots with some herbs and spices in them.

Other items that McDonald’s has brought back include the Brownie McFlurry and Hershey’s Chocolate Frappé.
