Food Review - McDonald's Third Pounder

   A new hamburger advertised?  Well you know I will try it.  So I did.

   Scooted to local McDonalds and ordered their new advertised Third Pounder which, so far, is available in Californa only.   And...

   ...not bad.  In fact, the best McDonald's burger I have eaten.  I got the mushroom version,  not the bacon type.  I had planned to share it, but it was tasty, and I ate it all myself.  Meat patty was plump and larger than the quarter pounder. I could actually taste the mushrooms and the pickle.

   How did it compare with the Carl's Jr chili cheeseburger I tasted last week?  It was as good or better, and far less messy.  Both cost between four and five dollars and both give "fast food" a better reputation than their lowest cost cousins. 

   As a food critic I haven't decided to give my selections stars or bells or Oscars.  I will give the Third Pounder four out of five possible golden pickles.

Good review Chuck. I haven't tried it yet. We have to where we like the Sonic burgers pretty good. Only once in a while though as I tried to avoid fast food. They are good and I like them but all are pretty greezy. Helen

We drove down to Orange Beach last night and on the way stopped at McDonalds. It's been so long since I had fast food, I didn't know what to get. I had the quarter pounder. It was ok, not great... filled me up, though!

    Okay, I think you have something. How many Golden Fries do you award to.....? See, a new pursuit. It is amazing though. Mushrooms are like salt. Almost everything tastes better with mushroom. Thank goodness it isn't as bad as salt is.
