I was very excited when I heard that McDonald’s was going to come out with new Fish McBites. I’m not really a meat eater and, when it comes to takeout food, I tend to prefer to eat fish and poultry. The opportunity to sample these bite sized nuggets of Alaskan Pollock was right up my alley so, I took the plunge, no pun intended.
The Fish McBites are crunchy little balls of fish that are dipped in subtly seasoned batter. Once you bite into them you immediately taste the combination of crunchy exterior and fish interior. I was pleasantly surprised at how good the fish inside tasted with only a slight after taste. However, dipping them in the complimentary Tartar Sauce that comes with them really took their taste to a whole other level.
There are three size choices for the new Fish McBites which are: Snack-size, regular-size, and shareable-size. I tried the snack-size and it contained a nice portion of food. Although each one had a familiar taste to that of the Fish Filet, the breading between the two is very different. My husband actually commented that he likes the breading for the McBites better because it is lightly seasoned and doesn’t overwhelm his tastebuds.
Overall, the Fish McBites were a big hit with my family. My husband now buys them during the week to snack on at work since he works nights. My older son and I love to snack on them in the afternoon, especially after we both get home from work and school. Hopefully, they will become a permanent part of the McDonald’s menu.
