I may have stated that my favourite fast food place is probably A & W- love the real egg breakfast, love that they have whole wheat buns that they will wrap around any sandwich on the menu board, and love the diet rootbeer for a refreshing change from the usual cola drinks.
Today, though, McDonalds, which is quite a bit further down the list, went up a few notches.
We were in the city and decided to swing past a drive-through for a snack. I had an apple in my purse, so I said if the oatmeal was available I'd try that, otherwise I'd just eat my apple.
It was available.
I tried it.
I was impressed.
I like that it didn't taste like instant oatmeal. I liked that the maple and brown sugar came in a separate packet. I like that it had real, chopped apple and a nice mixture of dried cranberries, sultana, and golden raisins. I like that the fruit made the maple and brown sugar unnecessary.
It was a tasty, satisfying snack. A cursory Internet search indicates that it might have 47g of carbohydrates, but it didn't indicate if that was with or without the packet of sweetening.
Good for McDonalds.
That was a cup of goodness that left me feeling warm and happy inside.
