We were looking forward to trying out McDonald’s Salted Egg Yolk Loaded Fries. Available for a top up of $1.20 with any meal, the Salted Egg Yolk Loaded Fries consists of McDonald’s signature French fries immersed in creamy yellow sauce laced with specks of green, courtesy of curry leaves.
We ordered our burger at the counter and asked for the upgrade to the Salted Egg Yolk Loaded Fries.
Another special menu item which McDonald’s had introduced was the Peach Pie and we decided to give that a try as well.
McDonald’s Salted Egg Yolk Loaded Fries Taste Test
McDonald’s Salted Egg Yolk Loaded Fries came in a red box which proudly proclaimed its contents.
Opening up the box, we stared down a stack of French fries, generously covered in the Salted Egg Yolk sauce. McDonald’s thoughtfully provides a fork to be used when consuming the sauce-laden fries. The box of fries looked promising.
We took up a fork-full of fries, anticipating a flavourful, sweet-and-savoury bite. Unfortunately, the taste of the Salted Egg Yolk Loaded Fries did not meet with our expectations.
Instead, the sauce of the McDonald’s Salted Egg Yolk Loaded Fries reminded us of mayonnaise. The taste was not to our liking at all. In fact, the generous blanket of sauce overpowered the fries and made it difficult to stomach more than a few mouthfuls. We didn’t finish up our box of McDonald’s Salted Egg Yolk Loaded Fries.
Next up was McDonald’s Peach Pie. Costing $1.40 a la carte, the Peach Pie came in the familiar McDonald’s pie shell but with oddly pink-coloured crust.
After the Salted Egg Yolk Loaded Fries, we braced ourselves for the taste of this unusually coloured pie.
Surprisingly, it tasted quite decent. The filling of the Peach Pie was not overly-sweet and had a passable flavour.
