McDonalds Poutine review

McDonalds just announced and released their version of the poutine. For those who don’t know what a poutine is a poutine is fries covered in cheese curds and gravy.

Unlike most poutines at fast food restaurants that come in a plastic container the McDonald’s Poutine comes in a paper box; just like all of McDonald’s food items.

McDonald’s advertises that their poutine uses real cheese curds, their word famous fires and gravy. Unsurprisingly the gravy used in the poutine is powered based and is really bland tasting. The gravy is light in color and I would assume the gravy is simulated chicken flavour.

The average price around Canada for the McDonald’s Poutine is under $4.

 Final Thoughts: 

To be honest McDonald’s fries are way to skinny to be used in a poutine. Overall I am not happy with McDonald’s first attempt at making a poutine. Maybe they will improve it over time.

The gravy did not have much of a taste to it.

I also found the size to be really small almost snack sized.

The fries that come in the poutine are almost the equivalent to a small size at McDonalds.

Have you tried the McDonald’s Poutine if so leave a comment for everyone below!

    Tried the “poutine” at McDonalds; the gravy was thin and tastless, the fries are not large enough for poutine, and even if they say these are real cheese curds; they are definitely not the curds you get in Quebec. Comparing McDonalds Poutine to a Quebec made poutine is like comparing the Crown Jewels to Glass imitations. The only good poutine unfortunately is made in Quebec.
