Confirmed sighting: McDonalds McMinis
Posted: 21:09 Mon 17-02-2003. Price: approx 79p. Location: McDonalds, Shaftesbury Ave, London. Sub-flavours: Pack of 3 - Cadbury Choc Chip Brownie, Donut with Cadbury milk chocolate, Cadbury Byte. Nutritional unusualness: None noted.
Snackspot reports: McDonald's token new product for Feb takes the form of three little cakes from Cadbury. According to Mickey D's themselves, they're actually "A luscious chocolate brownie topped with oodles of milk chocolate chips", "A mini donut topped with milk chocolate", and "A cluster of crunchy cornflakes smothered in a delicious milk chocolate". All were a bit stale and horrible (check your "Use by" date on the bottom of the box), except for the Cadbury Byte - ie a chocolate covered cornflake cake. Well done McDs for getting that right, anyway.
Online speculation implies that Cadbury will be taking over McD's entire "Donut" operation, with the Veggie Deluxe, fish fingers and Sundaes among the imminent casualties. Of course this bodes well for - though does not conclusively answer - the vital question of whether Easter will see the return of McDonald's finest dessert of all time, the Cadbury's Creme Egg McFlurry.

Comment: I received a free text message from McDonald's for a free box of McMini's when they first came out. I actually thought they were quite nice, not sure if I'd buy them though. I managed to get quite a few free boxes, through staff not deleting the message (as they were supposed to) and forwarding it to friends (staff did not seem to know what number the messages were supposed to be from)

Comment: Really fancied trying these!especially with the Cadbury's touch.
How disappointing to find there was nothing to them!
You'd need to buy a few boxes to actually feel you've eaten them. Bit of a rip off McDonalds or at least sell them off for 25p a box.
