It was fun meeting YouTube Personality, Ian Keiner of Peep This Out.
We were invited to a Sriracha Social, sponsored by McDonald’s of Southern California and had the opportunity to sample the new signature crafted burgers and chicken menu.
McDonalds Sriracha Chicken Sandwich
After trying the sriracha chicken sandwich (spicy for sure), Ian told me and other bloggers about the food reviews that he does for Peep This Out. Check out his successful YouTube channel. Then we had a tour of the kitchen of the McDonald’s in Gardena, CA. It was interesting to see how they cook both sides of the hamburger patties at the same time, which seals in the juices.
McDonald’s is going through some exciting changes. They are removing artificial preservatives, colors and flavors from the chicken McNuggets. I always wondered why artificial colors and flavors are needed. Since the same foods are served all over the world, in general, artificial colors and flavors add consistency. A Big Mac will taste the same in Nebraska as it does in Paris. Among other changes, they took out the high fructose corn syrup out of the buns and now serve chicken not treated with antibiotics. This is all due to consumer demand.
Little known fact: Ian’s favorite food is New York style pizza, and his favorite physical activity is anything cardio, such as hiking and biking. Check out his successful YouTube channel. www.youtube.com/peepthisout
