It’s like a child in Hawaii was carrying a lunch bag on the bike ride to school and took a tumble.
Inside the shaken lunch bag, the Oreos got crushed and spilled into some Spam, bread and mayonnaise. That would be a more reasonable combination than a food expert at McDonald’s deciding to serve such a combination as the Spam-Oreo burger. How is this random combination even a burger?
Taking liberties with meat to the next level, McDonald’s is launching a limited run of the “burger” starting Monday in China, where the company used the social media platform Weibo to unveil the look of two slices of Spam smothered with Oreo crumbles and some white condiment (mayo? cream?) between two sesame-seed buns.
Instead of double cheeseburgers, McDonald’s is offering a double dare.
“Look, I saw this so you have to see it too. Sorry, that’s how it works,” London-based video game analyst Daniel Ahmad tweeted with photos of the “burger.”
Ahmad, who covers video games in China, later replied, “1. Yes, people in China hate this too. 2. Some of y’all saying ‘Why would China do this?’ seem to have forgotten that McDonald’s is an American company. If anything this is a declaration of war on China by the US.”
There will only be 400,000 of the “burger” made, if demand for the curious concoction warrants that much production at $2.01 apiece.
This is so 2020 to come up with a creation that causes more of a hit-the-puke-emoji reaction than intrigued buzz. But just in case the revulsion was not there yet, the social media post described the flavor as a “fairy-like taste.”
All we wanted was the McRib back.
