In spite of my complaints, my life is pretty good at the moment. I live in an interesting place, I have a great circle of friends, I have the job of my dreams and as for my love life, well my mum reads this blog. Enough said.
So why I felt compelled to plunge head first into the vortex of self loathing as I did yesterday, is beyond my comprehension.
You see, McDonalds, in its pursuit of ruining all is great in the world, has turned its attention to cheese. Not just any cheese, Camembert. Behold my dear readers, the Camembert Bite (also known as the Cheesy Dipper).
Five small balls of Camembert, crumbed and deep fried and sprinkled with sesame seeds.
I must say, unlike many other of Mickie D’s offerings, this one actually looked like it does in the advertising material. They could have been hotter and I am sure they are intended to actually melt, that said, inoffensive and not your usual fast food fare.Camembert is a soft, creamy, surface-ripened cow’s milk cheese. It was first made in the late 18th century at Camembert, Normandy in northern France. Interesting choice for the fast food giants, but I guess it takes well to cooking at high heat and can keep its shape.
I wanted to hate it more than I did. That’s my dirty little secret.
