Last week I published a press-release from McDonald’s saying “Central Coast residents will have the opportunity to sample the new Egg White Delight McMuffin for free May 2 – 4 (one sample per person, per visit, during breakfast hours only).” I decided to try the offer and my experience is detailed below.
On May 4 The Restaurant Gal and I went in toMcDonald’s at Camino Real Marketplace in Goleta and asked for our free Egg White Delight McMuffins. The lady had no idea what I was talking about and rang up $7 on the cash register. I reminded her that there was a promotion running today for a free Egg White Delight McMuffin and she didn’t appear to know about it. She spoke to the other employees working around her and none of them knew about the promotion either. She then went to the kitchen and returned with a single chunk of egg white in a box. I then asked to speak with a manager about the free Egg White Delight McMuffin promotion and showed him the chunk of egg white in a box that had just been given to me. He then went to the kitchen and prepared
an Egg White Delight McMuffin, cut off 1/4 of it for the Restaurant Gal, cut off another 1/4 for me and discarded the rest. Needless to say this was not what we were expecting.
