Product Review – MacDonald’s Durian Crunch McFlurry

Advertisements

Was in Genting recently and spotted this new flavour which for a durian fan is like a dream come true. So of course, I bought one cup to try. Not cheap, costed me RM$7.60 which equates to around S$3.00. Nevertheless, I still have to try it.

Review:

It is probably the worst McFlurry I’ve ever tasted. The durian sauce tasted so chemical, they should have used puree instead. At the same time, there was hardly any durian taste in it. The crunchy stuff is hard, totally don’t value add to the overall product. I’d rather they add cornflakes instead. Somehow I believe these decisions to launch such a product have not gone through any food consultancy, really bad call and a waste of my money. It was so bad, I took 2 scoops and left the cup there. Really Pui Chao Nua…

MacDonald’s – Terminal 3 Changi Airport, Singapore

Think all my readers will be like WTF??? Since when I write for fastfood joints right? Frankly speaking, much is true as I do write about fastfood for overseas outlets that are different or not in Singapore only. But the reason why I’m writing this is because of 2 reasons. 1. Because they now have healthier food options; 2. I wanna give compliments. So let’s see the healthier food options first:

Chicken McGrill Burger – Great for people watching their waistline like me… sigh…
Loads of veg!

Rating: 4/5.

Taste: Chicken is juicy and tender. A tad too salty to be healthy. But love the lettuce and tomatoes, very fresh!

Portion: Average

Ambience: Very nice reno with free PCs for surfing.

Service: Excellent. But I caught some new manager trainees counting down the number of hours left before their work day end. Not very pro in front of customers.

RTE: Yes I would whenever I fly back to Singapore!

Location: Arrival Hall Terminal 3 Changi Airport.

Now I wanna give compliments to this aunty staff for helping me with the food tray to my table of choice after I ordered. She did it cos she saw me having many luggages, hence she came out of her counter to carry the tray for me, even though there were waiting customers. Such actions make Singaporeans feel really at home, especially for those whom are away for a long time. Her name is Siew Yong and she doesn’t know I’m writing this about her. I have since wrote to MacDonald’s Singapore and request them to give proper recognition to her and thank her for me and those Siew Yong has served before. I hope her gesture will be emulated by all the service staff in Singapore’s hospitality industry. Thanks Siew Yong!
