McDonald’s New Breakfast Bowls + $10 Arch Gift Card Giveaway!

McDonald’s New Breakfast Bowls + $10 Arch Gift Card Giveaway!

McDonald’s is back at it again with new breakfast items! I hadn’t been inside a McDonald’s in a while and the decor looked updated and fresh, perhaps trying to match their new breakfast bowls.

They also are now featuring Chobani yogurt in their smoothies and fruit and yogurt parfait’s.

There was even a display basket at the front showing some of the ingredients that go into the bowls.                                                                                                                                                                                

These new bowls are being rolled out slowly and Southern California locations are among the first to have them. Here are the Egg White & Turkey Sausage and Scrambled Egg and Chorizo Breakfast Bowls.…

They are the third and fourth locations to implement the changes and started rolling them out a little over a month ago. Using a touch screen to build a burger is not new to San Diego. We first saw it at Stacked in the Fashion Valley Mall in 2011. They use iPad’s to customize a burger order tableside. But if McDonald’s can pull it off, it will be the first major fast food chain to do so.…

Yes that’s right. Jack in the Box is getting in on the cronut craze. While they are a little behind the trend, we aren’t ones to pass up an opportunity to try these typically tasty treats. A few weeks ago we picked some up. Much like the Vons version, we weren’t expecting much. That’s the best approach going into these. Don’t get your hopes up, and then be pleasantly surprised.  DSC_0004 DSC_0010 And pleasantly surprised we were. The Jack in the Box version of the croissant donuts are miniature and topped with cinnamon and sugar.…
