Free Food…..McSkillet Burrito at Micky D’s

February 27, 2008


Yes, something is FREE this Thursday and Friday mornings (Feb. 28-29, ’08) at your local McDonalds…. the new McSkillet Burrito.  Hey, if it’s partially Mexican and as my sister would say, If it’s free….It’s for me.  On the website you can mouse-over the picture of the burrito and it tells you the name of each ingredient you are looking at…….  but (on the website) what in the world is the white little nameless strip in the bottom right??????????  Yes, your guess is as good as mine.  I’m thinking onion, maybe mushroom???  I won’t go into the myriad of other white, strippy, pseudo-food morsels that crossed my mind.

Before you run out the door Thursday morning…. I happened across the nutritional information for this sausagey- homemade-breakfast tortilla-filled handful of goodness.  It contains 610 calories, 330 from fat. The fat count is 36 gram, a whopping 56% of your daily value. Saturated fat is at 14 grams, 69% of your daily value, and there is a half gram of trans fat. The cholesterol count is awful, containing 137% of your daily value.

Now, if you are eating only one meal on Thursday or Friday, I would still recommend this, as most of your daily caloric needs for fat will be met in this one meal.  :o)  You should probably wash it down with some Kashi and prune juice when you get home.

Just trying to share the good news with friends.  Please let me know how it was if you try it.
