The Spicy Chicken McBites is the newest product by McDonald's that is currently being promoted throughout the nation. I think of it like of a popcorn chicken product and I was eager to get my hands on it and try it out, but thanks to McDonald's coupon, I was able to try a bunch of these for $1.09 per snack size container (small size). There are 3 sizes in all to buy McBites in: snack (small), regular (medium) and shareable (large). I am not 100% sure on the prices but I think that they cost somewhere around $2.00, $3.00 and $4.00 respectably. The first place that I tried them at was at the 86th Street location of McDonald's; right across the Deals store. I took the photo on the lamppost pedestal because some old dude with a walking cane came in and sat on the bench that I was sitting on, like 15 seconds after I got there, and then he began talking about some random shit. Don't you just hate it when random people just have to talk to you about some random stuff, and they can't seem to shut up? As soon as he sat there on the bench, I knew that it was time to leave the premises and take my McBites elsewhere for the photo-op, so the corner lamppost made a decent area to the photo on.
The whole spiel on the container sounds pretty promising.
Overall I ate around 8 or so snack size McBites throughout the month, and once I managed to keep my hand off the McBites so I could get them home so I could take some photos of them.

Dipping McBites into sauce can be pretty tasty, especially the larger pieces, but for smaller size pieces I prefer to eat them without any sauce, just like popcorn chicken. I think that these McBites are excellent in terms of taste and quality and I can't think of any other restaurant chain that has a product thats better than these McBites. The outer breading is very crisp and crunchy, while the chicken on the inside is slightly moist and tender. There is a spicy kick to McBites, which I think is a notch below mild spicyness. The snack size for $1.00 was a great value for such quality chicken product that I enjoyed eating, and like I said before; these McBites are like McDonald's version of popcorn chicken. The only thing that I did not liked much was that with different orders the sizes of chicken McBites were inconsistent: sometimes I received containers with all McBites being too small, while other couple times there were too many large pieces. I rate McBites at 4.8/5.0 and value rating is 4.4/5.0. I don't know for how long these will be offered at McD's, but I recommend them to anyone who likes breaded/battered chicken.
You can also try scoring a slam dunk with the empty container. I guess that this is a registered Ronald-approved trademark of McD's.
