AFTER much hype and buzz, McDonald’s latest burger seems to have failed to live up to the expectations it had created. The supposed highlight of the new special menu, the Salted Egg Yolk Chicken Burger has disappointed many eager customers who braved long queues and unbearable waiting time.

The new menu, tweaked to cater to the taste buds of locals here, featured the Salted Egg Yolk Chicken Burger, Twist & Shake Fries, Gula Melaka McFlurry® with Layer Cake Bites, and Spicy Nuggets. McDonald’s has always been able to respond to the latest food trends but whether they were able to satisfy their customers’ tastebuds is still a question.

More than 1,000 comments about the burger (mostly negative) have flooded the McDonald’s official Facebook page, and some took to Twitter to express their frustrations since the burger was introduced yesterday (June 30).

Most of those who voiced their dissatisfaction were unhappy about the meagre serving of the salted egg yolk sauce and/or that the sauce was only sweet but not salty enough. Take a look.





Not all customers were unhappy, for a few were satisfied with their purchase.
