So you thought that there are some crazy folks working in McDonald’s Singapore.
After all, who in their right mind can come out with Nasi Lemak Burger and Har Cheong Gai Burger?
Well, my dear friend, you’ve not met the folks from China.
If you can read Mandarin, here’s the translation and I swear I’m not drunk when I translate that:
Coca-Cola Chicken Wing.
Recently, McDonald’s China decided that they’re going to create something that the Chinese are familiar with, and so they’ve come out with Coca-Cola Chicken.
But wait… Coca-Cola Chicken is a dish that the Chinese are familiar with?
What. The. F***?
Well, apparently, it seems like over in China, cooking with Coca-Cola is very popular.
In fact, there are countless YouTube tutorials that’ll teach you how to cook Coca-Cola Chicken, with one getting a whopping 12 million views in mere three months.
Needless to say, I’ve not tried it before. I’ve tried asking everyone in the office and all the responses were the same: “EEEEEEEeeeeeeekkkkk.”
But it turns out that cooking with soft drinks isn’t uncommon: there are even Root Beer Wings that’s featured in BuzzFeed’s Tasty.
However, most of these dishes are braised and not deep fried.
And in McDonald’s China’s case?
They deep fried it instead.
Collaboration Between Coca-Cola and McDonald’s
This weird combination is a collaboration between Coca-Cola and McDonald’s, and it’s unknown whether it’ll stay as a permanent menu or not.
People in China are going apeshit over the new item (think: Nasi Lemak burger), and reviews have been mixed.
Some can’t taste the Coca-Cola in the chicken (I’ll be damned if I’m looking forward to that taste) while others feel that the skin’s sour and sweet, with a taste of Coca-Cola.
So, pray tell me: if you’re in China now, would you try it?
Or maybe…we should do an online petition in Singapore to convince McDonald’s Singapore to bring in this dish?
