Did anyone of you get one of the free Buttermilk Biscuits from McDonalds on Wednesday and Thursday?
If you missed that free giveaway, this is being extended but only on chowtimes. McDonalds Canada has so kindly given us a few dozen of Be Our Guest cards to be distributed to chowtimes readers. So you don’t have the fight the crowd and enjoy this at your own time.
Since we had so many, this is how we will be doing this. I will … post a series of trivia questions below and the first person who answers ONE of the question correctly will get two Buttermilk Biscuits mailed to you. To be fair to all, you can answer all of the questions but we will only consider your FIRST correct answer. The trivia questions will be in beige-grey boxes and are numbered. To answer the question, just leave your answer in the comment box below.
Even with all the trivia questions answered, we will still have LOTS of Be Our Guest cards left. So if you don’t want to answer the trivia questions, you can just email firstname.lastname@example.org your mailing address and we will send you a couple of the cards. This will be on a first come first serve basis.
Whatever you do, please do NOT post your mailing address on chowtimes, unless you want everyone to know where you live. :-)
I went to get one of the Buttermilk Biscuits on Wednesday, the first day of the giveaway.
I go to work very early because I work on the Eastern Time Zone and GMT hours. Yeah, I go to work when all of you are still fast asleep. So, I dropped by one of the McDonalds on the way to work to pick one up to try.
Question 1: I went to the outlet above. Can you name the outlet?
Update: This question was answered correctly by DylanK. This outlet is on Ironwood Mall
I drive past this outlet on the way to work everyday. And near this McDonald outlet, there is also a Tim Hortons. Usually I see the Tim Hortons outlet lined with cars on the drive through where people picks up a cup of coffee on the early drive to work.
That day it was so different. The Tim Hortons drive through had only one car in line while the McDonalds parking lot was full.
No strings attached. That is what the promotion said. I was wondering how much this two day promo must have cost McDonalds.
So I got myself a Sausage N Egg Buttermilk Biscuit.
Question 2: There are three versions of Buttermilk Biscuits. What are they?
Update: LotusRapper answered this question correctly. The third version is simply the Buttermilk Biscuit with Strawberry Jam.
The question above is a tough one I think. Let’s see who is a smart cookie … or rather smart biscuit. LOL!
At a glance this looks like a McMuffin or a McGriddle. It has that “bun” and a meat patty with egg and cheese.
I am not sure but I think the difference between the McGriddle/McMuffin with the Buttermilk Biscuit is the egg. I think McDonalds use real cracked eggs in the McGriddle and McMuffin. Here the egg is like the scrambled and folded type.
I remember the Most Powerful Chef in The World personally told me that McDonalds uses real eggs in McMuffin. So with this version, I think these eggs came partly cooked or something like that.
It does look very good and it does look like how they depicted it in the advertisements. I am sure you had Big Mac which does not quite resemble the delicious looking McMac in the posters, like this.
Question 3: Where is the FIRST McDonald outlet in Canada?
Update: Maggie answered this question correctly. The answer is No 3 Road and Granville in Richmond
I was wondering why McDonald did not name the Buttermilk Biscuit something like McBiscuit like they do with most of their products on the menu.
I saw that the Buttermilk Biscuits are $2.59 on the menu which is not too bad. It is quite a full hearty breakfast for me for one who usually have light breakfasts. I think there are about 500 calories in this sandwich.
Question 4: Is the Buttermilk Biscuits more expensive, cheaper or same price as the McMuffin?
Update: Christine answered this question correctly. The answer is the Buttermilk Biscuits costs the same as McMuffin,
The buttermilk biscuit is light and fluffly. Everyone will notice that it is also very crumbly as it breaks apart if you grip with the just a slightest of pressure.
It also smells good. The butteriness is evident in the smell and also the greasiness on the bun. It is real buttermilk and McDonalds said that they bake it fresh everyday.
I popped over to the McDonalds in Metrotown just across the street from my office and see how the line is like. Gosh, it was really long.
I estimated that there must be at least 120-150 people waiting in line to get the Buttermilk Biscuits. The line was so long it spilled out to the corridor.
I think the breakfast and lunch business near every McDonalds in town was somewhat affected that day with all the people going for the free sandwich.
Grant was smart. He told me that he did not even line up to get one. He went to the side of the counter and just grab one from the handful there! I think because of the chaos he just took one that is meant for other customers. LOL! This guy is going to make it in life. :-)
