McDonald’s Testing McMozzarella Sticks with McMarinara Sauce


We’re not sure how to feel about this, but it seems at least one McDonald’s location in New Jersey is testing a box of three piece mozzarella sticks for a dollar. Gettin’ crazy up in here.

Previously criticized by its own COO Tim Fenton for “overcomplicating” its menu, McDonald’s introducing yet another non-burger item even in test markets may look like a strange move. According to the interwebs, however, mozzarella sticks were previously available at McDonald’s locations in the UK, so they’re not a totally foreign concept.

The new sticks were recently spotted by Grubgrade reader, complete with marinara sauce and a handy sticker letting you know how many pieces were inside. No word yet on what other locations the breaded cheese tubes might be available at, but as long as they don’t plan on calling them McMozarella sticks, we’re not complaining.

If they would spend half as much time and money making the regular menu taste good, they wouldn’t have to try all these non burger things. If I want cheese sticks and marinara sauce I will go to Fazoli’s.

There’s basically nothing vegetarian for lunch or dinner (except for fried pies and drinks.) So I’d be happy to see these succeed.

For now, there’s beef fat in the fries, and there’s no veggie burger, so I stick to Burger King or Taco Bell if I want fast food.

They were also available in, as far as I am aware, the entire continental United States up until only a couple years ago. They weren’t great, but they weren’t godawful.
