With today being the last Friday before Easter, I am going to allow myself to indulge in a guilty pleasure. That guilty pleasure is the McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish sandwich.
I am not a big fan of seafood by any stretch of the imagination. I find Salmon to be repulsive, and can’t stomach things like Calamari. But I do like Tuna, Cod, Mahi Mahi, Pollack, and Halibut. The kinds of fish that don’t taste overly fishy. I’ve even tried Sushi, but I just can’t get around feeling like I need to gag every time I try it. So I tend to go for fish that’s like what’s found in Fish & Chips meals, Fish tacos, and Fish sandwiches like McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish.
The only time of year I like to have the McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish sandwich is during Lent. It’s not because I’m honoring any faith by any stretch of the imagination, it’s because it’s the only time McDonald’s charges what I think the sandwiches are worth. A few years ago, it was great when they were 99 cents, and last year they were sneaky and raised the price up to $1.29 and they kept the same price for this year here in California. The fish sandwiches are so small, I think they are a complete rip off at their regular price, you might as well get a burger instead. I know I shouldn’t be indulging in a fried fish sandwich, but it’s the only time of year I will do so at McDonald’s.
Happy Easter, and see you again in 2010 Filet-O-Fish!
