Score: 7/10

The last time I tried to get my hands on this sauce, they were sold out for weeks. I eventually tried to get this stuff again and was finally successful.

McDonald’s Mighty Hot Sauce is a hot sauce served specifically with their spicy chicken nuggets. I’m not entirely sure, but I think you can only get this stuff if you order spicy chicken nuggets. In any case, I ordered some spicy chicken nuggets and got this stuff too.

The most unique thing about this sauce is the sweetness. It’s a lot like McDonalds other spicy sauce, the sweet chili sauce. I looked at the ingredients and the sweetness comes mostly from apricots. Additionally, the sauce is much hotter than the sweet chili sauce. I don’t know if the sauce itself is very hot, the spicy nuggets are very hot, or the combination of the two was very hot, but it was pretty spicy for me (though I have a relatively low spice tolerance). It was so spicy, that the spice lingered and turned my Big Mac into a spicy Big Mac (which wouldn’t be a bad idea for future McDonald’s products). I think that’s a good thing, as there already are a lot of spicy fast food sauces. Making a spicy sauce that is substantially hotter than comparable fast food spicy sauces is a good idea and distinguishes McDonald’s. Of course, it is spicier only in my opinion. I wonder how other people who are more accustomed to spicy food will feel about it.

Overall, it a good sauce, but a not a good justification for ordering the spicy nuggets (I’ve reviewed the spicy nuggets in the past and basically feel that they are not worth it). If you can get the sauce with some regular nuggets, it’ll still be good.

Fast Food Review: Dunkin’s Donuts Caramel Flavor Swirl

Score: 6.5/10

The caramel flavor swirl is by far the most obscenely sweet flavor swirl/shot in Dunkin’… and yet it’s the one I prefer. I just like sweet stuff. Also, the other flavors simply don’t taste good or aren’t sweet enough. Coconut doesn’t taste great and I’m not always in the mood for chocolate mocha. The caramel flavor swirl tastes decent enough and is very sweet. You can request how many flavor swirls you want to control the level of sweetness you want. I usually get around three or four. Dunkin’s default amount is four I think.

Fast Food Review: Dunkin’ Donuts Mocha Flavor Swirl

Score: 6.5/10

As said in past reviews, Dunkin’ flavor swirls are sweetened and flavor shots are not. Mocha is essentially chocolate, so if you add it to your coffee, it’s going to taste like chocolate milk or something like that. Because this is sweetened, it makes your coffee taste even more like chocolate milk than the unsweetened flavor shot. It’s still not nearly as sweet as Hershey’s chocolate syrup though. The Mocha here tastes like a slightly darker chocolate.

Fast Food Review: Burger King Jalepeno Cheddar Bites

Score: 6/10

Jalepeno Cheddar Bites have been on Burger King’s menu for decades. They used to be called Jalepeno Poppers. Then they were taken off the menu. And then they came back. It’s a straight forward, frozen, deep fried snack. It’s not he greatest, however, you can get four for a dollar. With that price point, I almost always just buy some. It’s fried, spicy cheese. It’s completely unhealthy, but crunchy and cheesy.

Overall, this snack is just cheap enough to be worth purchasing.

Fast Food Review: Dunkin’ Donuts’ Toasted Coconut Flavor Swirl

Score: 5.8/10

As said in a past post, Dunkin’s flavor shots are unsweetened while flavor swirls are sweetened. So Dunkin’s Toasted Coconut Flavor Swirl is a sweetener. It tastes pretty much like the unsweetened flavor shot of the same name, but with sugar. This is not a good thing. The coconut flavor shot tastes like artificially flavored coconut water. It’s not an appealing taste to me and kind of makes me want to throw up. Adding sweetener to that helps a little, but there’s not much you can do with an inherently bad taste.

My recommendation: don’t get this. Get mocha or caramel, but don’t get this.
