Crispy Pops (Veg) by McDonald's: Sweet and Sour, a Citizen Journalist's review
It was a lazy day in office and few of our colleagues decided to visit McDonald's and try the recently launched, Crispy Veggie Pops. The cost for 6 and 12 such Veggie Pops stood at Rs. 25 and Rs 45 respectively.
At first sight, it looked like kachori (an Indian Dish). After popping few of those pops inside my mouth, I was left with a sweet and sour feeling. I would say sweet for their service, and sour because the size of those pops were way too small for my liking. It is said that good things come in small packages but Veggie Pops were too small in size and the taste was not that good as well for the price they charge.
These pops look so inviting and delicious on those ad posters, basically images of those pops outside their restaurants. Truth is bitter, as it does not taste delicious. I would not recommend my readers to have this food item, unless they are on a date or just hanging out with their friends, and he/she insists you to have something. Then may be, for the sake of your friend, you may have it. On the contrary, what I also feel is that it doesn't seem an unhealthy product.
Crispy Veggie & Chicken Pops have been launched with an objective in enhancing the ‘Value and Choice’ ratio further. With these Pops, their menu has increased in quantity, but not quality. Pops, primarily is a combination of potatoes and spinach in a spicy, crunchy wrap.
With India housing a maximum number of veg lovers, McDonald's introduced these pops in their Happy Price Menu (in India) to cater to their demands. With people spending more time in fast food restaurants, these pops might be successful, as it is light and also comprises of low calories.
The Crispy Veggie Pops were first tried in McDonald's in Hyderabad and after which it appeared across different chains of McDonald's across India. There are currently more than 300 McDonald’s restaurants in India.
