I’ve written many times in the past about how I like to visit McDonald’s while traveling to new places but rarely ever step foot inside a McD’s at home.
I stop by McDonald’s for a couple of reasons.
- I love seeing what local or different items might be on the menu.
- Sometimes you just want something to eat that is familiar.
During our trip to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico I visited McD’s due to reason #1.
While going for a walk around town after dinner, we headed towards the Malecon, Puerto, Vallarta’s boardwalk. I quickly spotted a McDonald’s and decided to check out the dessert window to see what was offered.
I was happily surprised to see an item that I’d never seen before, the Oreo cone!
Kim and I both ordered a “Cono Oreo” which was a bargain at 10 pesos, around .70¢ US.
When I mentioned Cono Oreo, the cashier was happy to move the lid off of the container to show me the goods.
I ordered the cone with vanilla ice cream and it was a great snack to have after a busy day. The vanilla ice cream made the cone have the feel of an original Oreo although the taste was quite different.
If you see the Oreo cone as an option at a McDonald’s ever, I’d recommend giving it a try.
The items I had hoped to see didn’t exist on the menu but Chiliquesos did.
FYI- Chiliquesos means chili cheese if you split the word up.
(There were also potato wedges and a French fries with a cheese powder shaker pack on the menu but we didn’t order those items.)
Before ordering I asked what kind of cheese was inside and was told cheddar. Perfect!
The cheese balls were small and could be eaten in one bite each. However, I had to bite a couple of half to see just what the cheese really looked like inside.
The Chiliqueso balls were slightly crispy on the outside and had a warm chewy cheese inside. At first I didn’t notice any heat but then I finished the second bite I needed water. The cheese wasn’t really spicy but I breathed in what seemed like spicy fumes…
I tried the Chiliquesos with BBQ sauce and it was a good combination. The sauce also did well to kill off the small amount of heat these cheese balls put out.
I’d definitely order this dish again if I came across it at another McDonald’s.
Overall, both McDonald’s Mexico menu items were definitely enjoyable.
