With Lent in full swing, millions of Americans are facing a serious problem: How will they ever replace those delicious McDonald's Chicken McBites with a meatless, Lent-friendly option? Never fear, McBite lovers, McDonald's has come to your rescue with a new offering: Fish McBites.
As you might guess, Fish McBites are small, bite-sized pieces of battered and fried fish. They come in three sizes and are also available in a Happy Meal. According to McDonald's, the fish used is the same Alaskan Pollack that's in the Filet-O-Fish. Why pick the McBites over the Filet-O-Fish? Well, choosing the McBites means no bun, American cheese or tartar sauce; three ingredients that contain a lot of calories, but provide little nutrition. Plus, Fish McBites are made to be dunked in a variety of tasty sauces, and science has proven that dunking food makes it better. Don't believe me? Try dunking an Oreo in milk. I rest my case.
This new menu addition has created a dilemma for McBite lovers; chicken or fish? Let's look at the nutrition facts and see which one will be the healthier choice!
