McDonalds' Fish Mcbites—they are quite delicious.
I liked the salty, crispy fish-chip taste, and the magnificently-engineered box. So in this journal, I won't describe anything about the taste because, well it's not very fun to read about how something taste without eating it; in fact, sometimes when you do read about food that so deli-lili-scrumptious like in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, you just become hungry for that wonderful thing you are not and perhaps cannot eat like the ratatouille made by a Remy in Pixar's Ratatouille because I am not sure if it actually exists in this world yet; Though that taste of McDonald's Fish Mcbites is already wonderfully described on the box:
"POPPED FROM THE SEA.
Bite through crispy tender pieces of poppable white, flaky Alaskan Pollock. First taste the crisp seasoned coating, then plunge deep into a creamy, tangy tartar sauce. Repeat until satisfied. So delicious you'll want to share this new way to love fish. I'm lovi' it"
I started imagining the Fish Mcbites were traveling all around the world in an tea-colored ocean of olive and vegetable oil before jumping out of the sea and polka-dotting a pleasantly indigo-blue or a cloudy grey sky with golden crispy scales; and thought: Wow, my food been on an adventure. (unless they came from a fish-farm. Then they probably had less of an adventure)
Ah, but Yes, back to the magnificently-engineered box. I remembered when I was so much younger, that the boxes for take-out seemed very much the same for every so type of food. A pizza had a pizza boxes that were large and flat, burgers had paper, drinks and instant-ramen came in the same-shaped cup and other foods had the same patterned-box whether a smiley face Styrofoam or paper with a open and close lid in the middle, not the top. And today, oh, today, we have boxes with tiny little cup-holders that pop out on the sides! Cup-holders. What genius! (I thought quite out loud, because it was not a thought meant to be quiet—obviously) There are lots of little things we take for granted.
For example, I have noticed my milk doesn't come anymore with a plastic soda-can cap to tug open the flat plastic seal used to keep the milk fresh; it comes with a semi-circle flap to pull the flat seal open—it is much easier to use because of the bigger leverage and much nicer because the inner fold your finger doesn't have to feel the seizing gasp of the plastic tugging on it. That's an improvement you might not think of. Another one l like is the ketchup bottle though it's a quite old invention (at least ten years old I believe). The mechanic of a baby-bottle's mouthpiece was combined with a ketchup bottle so your ketchup always comes out nicely instead of Spurt-Spurt-Splat! Too much, too little ketchup! The newest invention in food technology I like is a simple ink cartridge of concentrated soda, in particular Coke-Cola. Order your beverage from Coke's interactive soda fountain, whether be juice or tea or soft-drink or combination of 1 or 2 or 3 through a touch-screen, and Oh, golly gee out from a single nozzle to your cup, your lovely drink mademoiselle or sir; and the ink-cartridge makes the soda, tea, or juice.
So a small thought to think: food technology is brilliant.
