Some of you may have noticed that I like to visit McDonald’s while traveling around the world.
While McD’s is a place that I rarely ever dine at while home, I love stopping in international locations to see if any interesting items (which are not available in the U.S.) are sold.
From time to time I might stop at a McDonald’s at home. For example, we stopped at the Train Car McD’s in Massachusetts a few years back but didn’t order anything to eat.
In a post last month, Awesome McDonald’s Dishes You Can’t Get In America, a reader commented that fried mozzarella sticks were being test-marketed at a location in Queens.
I didn’t try to track down the mozzarella sticks by looking into which location in Queens sold them. However, a few weeks later I saw a poster hanging up at a McDonald’s location close to Lucas’ school advertising the item.
I decided- since Lucas loves mozzarella sticks and I love to check out not so typical McD’s menu items, we’d stop in one day to sample them.
Here are my thoughts on McDonald’s Mozzarella Sticks.
When I opened up the package, I felt that the sticks looked a bit small but they did look pretty tasty. You could see little flecks of seasoning in the breading which was a nice yellow-brown color. They also smelled pretty good, too.
The marinara sauce was a dark red color and it looked something like a cross between barbecue sauce and ketchup.
When I tried my first mozzarella stick, I liked what I tasted. The stick had a lot of flavor and wasn’t bland like I was expecting it to be. The best way to describe the flavoring would be fried breading but not really greasy with a bit of an oniony taste. The cheese inside didn’t have a ton of flavor but the whole mozzarella stick was pretty decent.
As for the sauce, it was a bit stronger than I like for a marinara. I wasn’t a huge fan of this element but I still dipped each stick nonetheless.
The other main thing I noticed (not so surprisingly) about the mozzarella sticks was the fact that the cheese wasn’t at all gooey or stringy when I bit into it. The cheese inside seems more like a blob. If you look closely at the photo just above, you’ll see how the cheese looks like old grilled cheese when it gets cold and congeals.
While I’ve only tried McDonald’s Mozzarella Sticks this one time, if I happened to stop in again, I would order them. I’m not saying these are some of the best mozzarella sticks I’ve ever had, but for a $1 for 3 it seems like a decent deal.
If you happen to find yourself dining at McDonald’s and mozzarella sticks are on the menu, I’d recommend that you give them a try.
