Just came back from the tasting session at McDonald's Janpath outlet and am I full. Hell, yeah! McDonald's have introduced two new burgers to its premium range. Ever since I got to know about the new burgers, I wanted to try them so badly. But wasn't able to find time. The television commercials weren't helping either. Finally got an invite to the tasting session and hence my wish got fulfilled.
The new Royale range includes two meal-sized premium burgers - McPaneer Royale and Grilled Chicken Royale. And when we say meal-sized, we mean they are huge. I tried the McPaneer Royale and loved every bit of it. The paneer inside is juicy and marinated well with a delicious mix of herbs. This topped with a crispy lettuce salad, tomatoes and jalapenos with creamy cheese and onion sauce slathered generously. All this goodness comes sandwiched inside fresh corn meal dusted buns that are yummilicious. The only problem with this burger is that it fails to hold the ingredients inside and makes it impossible to eat without making a total mess. The packaging is something that McDonald's needs to work upon, especially for McPaneer Royale.
I got the Grilled Chicken Royale burger packed for one of my colleagues and she loved it. Considering my friend is a true-blue non-vegetarian, her word can be taken for good. Will recommend my other non-vegetarian friends to give it a try, especially for the delicious buns.
McDonald's, for quiet a few years now, has been trying to strengthen its brand image as a family restaurant catering to all age groups. With a motto to breakthrough its images of just a value brand, McDonald's has introduced products like Masala Grill in the mid-tier range. Now with the Royale range, the brand is attempting to grab the attention of a new customer base. And we are loving it!

Everybody is eagerly waiting for the FIFA World Cup Brazil 2014, to start this June. McDonald's has increased our excitement by a million notches by introducing its world famous FIFA World Cup's Player Escort Program in India. Through this initiative, McDonald's will send one Indian kid to escort a player to the ground at the FIFA WC's Round of 16 match on June 28th 2014 in Rio de Janeiro, in front of global audience.
The program is open to football-lovers in the age group of 6-10 years. All you need to do is, purchase your little Rooney a Happy Meal between April 1 to April 30, 2014. Then give a missed call to a dedicated number, to punch in the code received along with the meal. You will be asked a few FIFA related questions. On answering all questions correctly, you will qualify for lucky draw. One lucky winner from the draw will win an-all expense paid trip along with a parent/guardian to FIFA World Cup being organized in Brazil.
Apart from this, McDonald's has numerous events lined up for children in Rio. Besides escorting the players to the ground, children taking part in the program from around the world will get to see the football matches. Also, McDonald's sight-seeing have planned sight-seeing tours of the city of Rio de Janeiro. Awesome!
So, when are you taking your kids to McDonald's?
