McDonald's Egg White Delight McMuffin Review

I will be honest. I don't like eating healthy or low calorie food. To me, it just doesn't taste good. However, when I noticed even fast food restaurants such as McDonald's (where I love to eat!) are also coming out with healthier options... well, let's just say I decided it was time to take the taste test and find out for myself if I'd be sacrificing taste by eating a healthier option on the menu. Breakfast is one of my favorite meals at McDonald's-especially when I am working (which is about 9 months out of the year). My co-workers know that I usually arrive at work McDonald's breakfast in hand so the first thing I wanted to try was their new Egg White Delight that I'd seen advertised while going through the drive-thru earlier in the week.
I am going to say that I was pleasantly surprised by the taste-it was not at all like I was expecting. It tasted great, AND was only 250 calories! It is definitely something that I would order again and again-for the great taste AND the lower calorie count. My husband even tried one (I didn't tell him anything about it until he had already eaten it.) and before he was done, he asked me what kind of sandwich this was since he'd never had it before and it was pretty good. I also liked the fact that this sandwich didn't have any trans fats. One thing I didn't know was that the egg whites are grilled right in the restaurant, and that other egg and cheese sandwiches can also be made with egg whites and white cheddar, saving 50 calories per sandwich or even your Breakfast platter can be customized adding the egg whites instead of scrambled eggs, saving you 100 calories. Since I order those items often, I think I am going to customize my sandwiches and platters to include the egg whites since they tasted so good.
Hey, if you live in Maine leave me a comment below with your email... I was lucky enough to get a few coupons via the Maine McDonald's PR team to share with you all. (one free Egg White Delight McMuffin with ANY purchase!) I also received FREE coupons for myself so that we could try the product as well and give our opinion on it. Even though I received free coupons, the opinion given above is mine based on my own experience with the McDonald's Egg White Delight McMuffin. (and believe me, I probably would have tried it even without the coupons!) Thanks to the Maine McDonald's PR team for giving me the opportunity to review this and offer my opinion-head on over to McDonald's and get one yourself, I'd be interested in knowing what YOU think about it!

Hey Michele! These sandwiches look good but like you I usually steer clear from the healthy options. But on your well known honest review I'd gladly give it a try. Up here in the sticks McDonalds is the only drive-thru available so I'm a regular! ;-)Thanks!

Would love to try McDonald's Egg White Delight McMuffin (whew that's a mouth full of a title). I have a McD's just 3 or 4 miles from here and right now I'm enjoying their Medium Ice Coffee for a $1 (they are good and lot cheaper than Dunkin lol)
