I notice McDonalds had replaced the Batman meal with Superman.  This one consists of honey mustard chicken sauce, a fried chicken fillet, a slice of bacon, cheese and lettuce.  This is a McChicken on steroids aptly named Superman.  It’s also part of their Justice League promotion.  There’s an option of the meal arriving with a Superman float, soda and ice cream with a blue sauce to which I dare not order.

The Superman burger tastes better than the Batman.  McDonalds decided to let the food to shine without drenching it in layers of sauce.  This burger had a dollop of quarter size honey mustard sauce on both sides of the burger bun.  The bacon was lightly seared rather than being deep fried (the stock photos showed deep fried bacon).  I thoroughly enjoyed it.  I would have enjoyed ketchup to add a touch of tang, vinegar would work too.  I was shocked the Superman burger didn’t use their award winning McChicken sauce.  Ketchup as the binding agent would have been in keeping with the Superman theme as the burger requires a touch of red.  Ketchup or tomato.

Cheesy potatoes replace the french fries.  Cheesy potatoes is hashbrowns with a cheese taste rather than a cheese filling.  I miss having the availability of ordering hashbrowns outside of breakfast hours so cheesy potatoes fill this pregnant lady craving.

I went back to McDonalds the following day with the gf in tow to see if the meal appealed to her.  It’s a nice surprise to break the monotony of McDonalds meals but I still prefer the Filet-o-Fish with french fries.  It’s actually cheaper to order make your own Filet-O-Fish meal ordering a la carte than buying the extra value meal version.  Filet-O-Fish $9, small fries $5, small coke $5.  $19 vs $31 for the EVM.  TYFBO.

    isn’t there a figurine that comes with the meal? Or is that separate? Good tip on the filet-o-fish, I never thought of buying it separately.

    You have to pay $15 extra for a figure, although most are sold out now. I’m not a fan of McD’s but as a huge DC/Superman fan I give this the thumbs up!
