Hello everyone, this is Running On Empty . . . Food Review! Right. Welcome Home! Good morning, everyone! Welcome to this morning edition of running an empty food view. I’m your host TheReportOfTheWeek. And, Today’s review we’re uh we’re back on the day schedule! You know, not really. I’ve been up all night for this. I kid you not! But, no matter what, we are up! We’re we’re waking up. We’re starting off the day bright and early with a new, a fairly new, McDonald’s release. This was actually really recommended to me in my newest live stream. A lot of people were saying, you know, “Brah! You gotta try the donut sticks from McDonald’s.” I thought to myself, “Alright, you know, I’ll note that down on the.. whatever I was – the roster. You know, the uh the list.” And… And see if it ever comes to fruition. Sure enough. I have in my possession a number, an undisclosed number, of donut sticks from McDonald’s. This is a new addition to their breakfast menu. And… If you ask me, because I think a lot of people, you know ,donut sticks is a… it’s a very, it’s a name that kind of leaves you wondering. You know? It’s one of those names that isn’t revealing in the least and a lot of people were wondering, “Well what exactly are the donut sticks from McDonald’s supposed to be?” And that’s a good question! From the research I have done the donut sticks from McDonald’s are apparently stick like formations of donutesque material covered in cinnamon sugar and come with a maple maple syrup type of, you know, dipping sauce and it’s supposed to be just like a light snack. You know? Something a little sweet and sugary to start your day off. In my opinion, anyway, I think they are trying to compete with Burger King’s french toast sticks, if you ask me. I think that’s what they’re trying to compete with here. But whether they’re any good or not? That’s what we’re here to find out! So… and this is the donut stick satchel right there. And… I forgot to mention, like I said, it’s very very basic, you get the donut sticks and then you get the the dipping sauce, you know, the maple syrup sauce. The price of these $3.39 for 12 of them. So keep that in mind! A 12 pack comes for $3.39, which isn’t too bad. Trying to find a good napkin here. Looks like some of the sauce… Did it leak out? Who knows? We’ll go with this one.
Anyway . . . This is, um, dipping sauce right there. They like to say kind of in in code that it’s hotcakes syrup, but it’s really maple syrup, but you know it sounds nicer. Anyway, there you go. And like I said, so within this donut sticks! And there I am . . . (Whoot, There It Is!) with the donut sticks. Alright, so. This is what a donut stick in its semi-natural habitat looks like anyway. Crispy. And then you can see covered with the cinnamon sugar glaze. There’s one next to my head for comparison. And with that being said, I’m gonna try it out then I’ll try it with the dipping sauce and we’ll just go from there. So it’s the donut sticks from McDonald’s going in! (Its goin in yuze guys!) (Did you say it with him? Yeah. Me too!) (Nice close up brah. It just looks like dried bread though. Thanks for taking one for the team on this one.) Let me try that one trick. (He did it!) Yeah! Now, so you put your hand behind it or something then it, and then it works? Clearly I’m not doing that right but there we go. Well, since its a breakfast food, may as well pretend that it’s it’s breakfast time. So uh, you guys have a good good sleep last night? (Sadly brah, I did not.) (Stayed up all night marathoning ‘The Goonies’ and John Hughes films…) (eating a bucket of ice cream…) (reminiscing about being young and dumb. Then I cried.) That’s great! Got any fun activities planned for the day today? (Briefed Elon Musk on the urgency of harnessing the natural resource that is “American fast food”.) (As it will provide SpaceX with an infinite energy source critical for Mars colonization by humans.) (Then it’s back to my cover panhandling as a homeless person.) You’re kidding? (Serious dude!) No. I’m, I’m saying that seriously because I was thinking the same exact thing. (No way!) Yeah, the space program about the donut sticks, yep. You know? We’re on the same page right here. Sometimes, you know coincidences that stuff is crazy! (Dude that’s nuts!) (Like really nuts.) I was just saying . . . (Say what?) If somehow you were able to construct a device composed exclusively of donut sticks and was powered by the the hot cake syrup, how much of this would be necessary to get to Mars? (now I’m spooked) (real spooked) (I’m going to have to contact the agency about this one.) (weird) Like I said, there is the pool of hot cake syrup not big enough to swim in yet, but they say it’s growing by the day! Dip it in there. That one was close had a few close calls in the past. Always always lay out some napkins. Yeah, better safe than sorry. Alright. Tell me is that a squirrel? No, no, that’s uh… Oh that’s a cardinal! Oh, very pretty bird. Very pretty bird. Trying to figure out what that, what that was, the Cardinals. Those are always a beautiful, beautiful avian specimen. All right! So here are my thoughts on the donut sticks, alright? They are a very basic item. I think that they’re trying to compete with Burger King’s french toast sticks. But they are very different. What these, in my opinion, are lacking… They seem to just be very airy, you know? You know what I mean? It’s just very, you know, it’s very light. It’s very fluffy. And I understand that. Has that little bit of a crispiness from being fried. Good coverage in regards to the cinnamon sugar coating. And I will say this: The The hotcakes syrup – I even had to write that down, because I’d forget it otherwise – is a perfect accompaniment for it. I kid you not there. It, you know, it gives it that moisture that it desperately needs and you definitely got to get that, if you want to get these donut sticks. Here’s the one thing that I think that it’s missing: I think these could be a little fuller, if you ask me. By that I mean like the name donut sticks, right? Most Donuts that you eat are usually on the thicker side, you know? It’s not like it’s all just air, right? You would hope for maybe just to be a little more egginess, just a little more substance to it, perhaps. Because, otherwise, you eat it and it’s got that crisp, it’s got the cinnamon sugar, but it feels like there should just be a little bit more to it than that. It feels like I should just be eating a little bit more food. When really like half the bite is just air and that’s my one complaint when it comes down to it. On its own, it’s a, you know, it’s a fair snack. I’d recommend you give it a shot. But again gotta get that that maple syrup to go along with it! However, if you were trying to directly compare these to the French toast sticks from Burger King, I will have to say Burger King undoubtedly takes the crown on this one. Now with that said, all things considered? Looking at the product, the price, all of that, out of ten? I think they still hold their own. I’m gonna be giving these a 7.7 out of 10 and with that being said, I just think, like I said on their own? They’re alright. But if you try to compare these to French toast sticks the French toast sticks will win every time. That’s all that I have for you ladies and gentlemen. Today’s review was for the donut sticks from McDonald’s a new breakfast item and, with that being said, make sure you check out my new podcast that will be coming out in a few days.

    I am a McDonald's worker so I've worked with this product many times. The Donut Sticks actually do not come with syrup and I haven't had anyone ask for it either. The Donut Sticks are a frozen product which before being deep fried is about 1 1/2 – 2 cm in diameter and probably 1 inch long.

    I think you missed the whole point of the donut. It is only at its full potential when being dipped in a sweetened coffee. The donut absorbs the coffee and gets a whole new depth of flavor.
