McDonald’s Canada: Spicy Buffalo Poutine

Diana Chan July 12, 2014 British Columbia, Fast Food


Last year, McDonalds Canada introduced the poutine. Now, they have poutine 2.0 – the Spicy Buffalo Poutine. This got me curious because I would not expect spicy buffalo sauce and poutine to ever mix together.


The Spicy Buffalo Poutine ($4.99) has fries, cheese curds, gravy, green onions, chicken and the spicy buffalo sauce. You can get the chicken grilled or crispy. We went with the crispy chicken because we might as well indulge.

The poutine doesn’t look attractive, but once you dig in, you get a mouthful of the buffalo sauce and it is similar to Franks Red Hot Sauce. The vinegary taste from the hot sauce compliments the richness from the curds and gravy. 

It’s not bad at all.

    I am Canadian and love my poutine….I just tried this last night. I can honestly say, it was possibly the worst thing I ever tasted. That said is horrible and extremely hot…barely any gravy and not only were the fries cold…but so were the curds. What else should I have expected from McDonald’s I guess. They obviously have no clue what poutine ought to taste like. Nasty!

    Tried it a couple of weeks ago. Absolutely gross. Tastes NOTHING like poutine. More like fries with a half-assed attempt at spicy gravy.

    Avoid at all costs.

      Also tried this recently. Pretty terrible. The smell made me want to barf, but I was pretty hungry so I are the chicken off the top.

    We tried it this week and except for being cheap on the sauce and cheese, it was a great poutine. I loved the flavours!
