The free McSkillet burrito... good for nothing

With a medium or large drink it was free today (2/28) and Friday (2/29)

If you have any desire to try this ... this is the time.

Normally it is about $2.50. At my local McDonald's a medium coffee is $1.50 ... so ...

The McSkillet Burrito is a made-to-order burrito with with scrambled eggs, sausage, melted cheddar jack and American cheese, red and green bell peppers, onions and potatoes wrapped in a flour tortilla.

I am always amazed with give-aways if the product isn't that great.

The McSkillet is only ok. The $1 breakfast burrito is much better because it is smaller and salsa is on the side. The bigger McSkillet calls attention to the flaws because there is more of it. I wouldn't pay for this on my own.

What really ruins it is the salsa ... you know what I've mean if you ever tried McDonald's red salsa ... like Pace ... or any mediocre mass-produced salsa. The potatoes were kind of soft and unpleasant. The sausage isn't good even applying Jimmy Dean standards.

All wrapped in one of McDonald's flabby flour tortillas.

All in all, underwhelming. Even the worst taco truck makes a better burrito.

The coffee ... ick. Really, I'm no fan of Starbucks but they don't need to fear McDonald's entry into the coffee world. The only benefit of the coffee is that coffee is not a good drink usually with spicy foods ... it intensifies spiciness ... withouth the coffee the burritto had little spicy heat.
