For as long as I’ve been alive, the sweet side of the breakfast menu at McDonald’s in Sydney has always consisted only of hotcakes with syrup.
That is, until very recently when they introduced their French Toast Fingers. And of course I had to try it out! I wanted to know why they’d introduce a new sweet item onto their breakfast menu after so long. Plus, I like French toast with syrup generally.
The French Toast Fingers come in the cutest box. It stores four French toast fingers in one section, and then the hotcake syrup sits in a separate fitted cut-out like a side car to the French toast section.
As for how the actual fingers, they smell a lot of McDonald’s apple pie, which makes me think they’re fried in the same oil. They’re exceeding oily, which is why I’m eating it with a napkin (the napkin was soaked through with oil). They taste rather cake-y, but fluffier than the stodgy hotcakes, which is a plus. But after about 2.5 I was quite bored of them. They have a richer taste than hotcakes, but are less easy to eat because of the high oil content. It was fun to try, but I probably won’t be buying it again.
