Singapore’s not lovin’ it.
The new McDonald’s Chick ‘N’ Cheese burger has sparked fury among some dyspeptic customers who are griping online about the “disgusting” “terrible” and real-life “Chum Bucket.”
The sandwich, which is currently only available at the chain’s locations in the Southeast Asian nation, includes crispy chicken, lettuce, sweet tomato chili jam and a patty made of fried mozzarella cheese. For good measure, it has a slice of American cheese thrown in as well.
The new sandwich was also unveiled with two accompanying sides: Pizza McShaker Fries and Ha! Chicken Drumlets.
The rollout of the sandwich, which launched last week and McDonald’s said is available for a limited time, was highly promoted in Singapore.
“Check out the cheeeese in our new Chick ‘N’ Cheese burger,” the chain wrote on Instagram last week. “It’s stacked with ingredients from bun to bun that’ll take your tastebuds to the next level!”
If that sounds too good to be true, it is, according to Singapore-based customers who took to social media to express their disappointment in the new item.
“Not worth it,” one Instagram user said pointedly. “I was extremely disappointed with the cheese. Something about the flavours didnt gel well.”
Charles Tan said on Facebook, “definitely a no go for me, including the sides.” Jonathan Lee put it simply: “Underwhelming.”
“The cheese patty was so disappointingly mushy,” wrote another Facebook user who goes by ZY Huang.
And a user on Twitter equated the sandwich to “the Chum Bucket in real life.”
Another tagged the McDonald’s Twitter account and said, “no one asked for this nonsense. Bring back snack wraps and ditch Chick ‘N’ Cheese Burgers.”
