Feb 25, 2013 — For this week's Sandwich Monday, we try McDonald's new "Fish McBites." They're basically a seafood version of their Chicken McNuggets. Or as McDonald's calls it, "tender pieces of poppable white, flaky Alaskan Pollock."

Dec 3, 2012 — For this week's Sandwich Monday, we try McDonald's new CBO sandwich. CBO stands for "Cheddar, Bacon, Onion," but they have to put an asterisk after "Cheddar," because it's not really cheese. We don't know why they don't have to put an asterisk after "food."
