McDonald's Sweet Chili Sauce (limited edition)

I don't give a rat's ass about the Winter Olympics ("Hey, you got your X-games in my Olympics!"), but I get excited over a new dipping sauce like Mike Tyson at a beauty pageant. I forgot to pack my sensible lunch today, so I swung into Mickey D's for some nugs and sweet chili sauce to see if I was "lovin' it."

It tastes a lot like what it looks like - duck sauce with some chili flakes and bits in it. But, if I said it wasn't super tasty, I'd be a big, fat liar.

As far as heat, there's little to none. I've been suffering from epic and relentless heartburn for almost three days, and this didn't have any further ill effects on me. Just enough to leave a little tingle on your tongue. As a comparison, Wendy's Sweet & Spicy Asian boneless wings are actually much hotter. I'm a bit of a cream-puff when it comes to heat, and I usually find myself all the way through a bottle of water when eating the stuff from Wendy's. The ingredients, as I recall, are water, sugar/HFCS, vinegar, cayenne, red pepper and preservatives.

I only eat McDonald's once in a blue moon, but I'll be a little bit bummed when this goes away. Hopefully they'll do what most fast-food joints do and just tell everyone it's limited edition, then bring it on full-time after all of those Frenchies have beefed it down the bunny slope.
