Although I don’t eat it often, I love fast food. Nachos Bell Grande? McNuggs? I’m there. And you know what I love more than food? Fast food jingles.
So when a particular jingle is catchy, annoying, creepy, and lasts for more than a year…I’m bound to drunkenly force someone to drive me to McDonald’s and get said sandwich.
Even drunk, I was terrified of the Filet-O-Fish. I’m really particular about my fish, and there was nothing particular about this sandwich. Some people told me they weren’t bad, but the thought of eating fried fish from a fast food restaurant made me dry heave. But I just loved the song so much I had to order it.
After a self pep talk (and some drunk photographing, see below) I took a bite.
IT WAS DELICIOUS.
It wasn’t the mushy fish parts I was expecting. The fish was SO crispy, a nice contrast to the soft bun. And…it was ACTUALLY a filet. No fish parts formed into a patty. A real fish filet. And then when I thought it couldn’t get any better, there was cheese and tartar sauce. This sandwich was gone in 5 seconds.
If you’ve never had one of these before, don’t do it. You’ll start craving them like crack.
