McDonalds Canada has come up with some strange sounding burgers for the holiday season – Jolly Burger and Chicken Celebration. In addition to the Holiday Warmers lineup, they have peppermint mocha, peppermint hot chocolate and ginger cookies. I received a gift card from McDonalds, so it was the perfect chance to try these limited time burgers.
Chicken Celebration has breaded chicken patty topped with melted processed white cheddar cheese, leaf lettuce, bacon, and a creamy rotisserie seasoned sauce. M gave this burger a try and he thought it tasted like a McChicken with a nicer bun. He thought the flavours were pretty unimpressive. The sauce and cheese could have been a bit better.
Jolly Burger has a quarter pound of 100% Canadian Beef Patty with creamy peppercorn sauce, melted process white cheddar cheese, grilled onions and leaf lettuce. Reminded me of a quarter pounder with a lot of onions. The peppercorn sauce was ok, but didn’t transform the burger since the grilled onions dominated.
Both burgers use a toasted, cross-split premium bun topped with rolled what flakes, thus giving the appearance of ‘snow’ on top of the bun. Overall, both were ok, but I wouldn’t go out to get these burgers specifically. You can’t beat good ol’ McNuggets or a Big Mac.
