When we went to the airport over the weekend we left the house kinda late, but our flight was delayed so we had time to get something to eat. There’s a McDonald’s in the Budget Terminal, so we took a look at the menu and decided to try the Prosperity Burger. I’ve never seen it anywhere else and it’s only put on the menu around Chinese New Year. This will be our last CNY in Singapore so it made sense to try it at least once.
Well, it wasn’t as good as I’d hoped but it had a nice taste to it. I think I enjoyed the curly fries more than the burger though.
The “truth” I mentioned about this burger is that they do in fact sell it in the US. Well, they sell the patty anyway. The Prosperity Burger is nothing but a McRib sandwich with black pepper sauce instead of barbecue sauce. So… good job at marketing, but bad job at creating a unique product.
The other “truth” about this burger meal is that it’s a serious gut bomb. It felt like I had a lead weight in my stomach for the rest of the day. Maybe we just weren’t prepared for the amount of grease involved in that kind of meal anymore.
I’ve heard some of my family and friends say they wouldn’t mind seeing those curly fries at McDonald’s in the US. They make me miss Arby’s.
