McDonald's Sausage Egg McMuffin - Ad McDonald's Sausage Egg McMuffin

Looks: Well, the ingredients are in the right order, but none of them appear as advertised. The muffin is kind of wimpy, the egg misshapen, the sausage smaller than it should be, and the cheese is more of a greasy oil square that won’t melt. 2 out of 5

Taste: You remember that episode of The Simpsons where Homer drank a candle in order to coat his mouth with wax so he could eat the insanely hot peppers? Yeah, it’s kind of like that. The sandwich tastes ok – mostly like sausage and English muffin, but it leaves a coating of grease in your mouth for about three hours. So if you need tongue protection for some dangerous eating stunt, by all means, start with a Sausage Egg McMuffin. 1 out of 5

Subway Bacon and Egg

(pictured on Monterey Cheddar bread, not Italian).

Looks: The meat and cheese aren’t folded inside the egg like in the advertisement, and there isn’t nearly enough sandwich toppings to make the bread fold open like the ad shows. It does fall within the generally-accepted range of how fast food should look compared to the advertised product. 3.5 out of 5

Taste: Satisfying, but without a lot of flavor. The egg has a strange wetness that you feel inside of your mouth as you chew on it, as if it were filled with a bunch of small water pockets. The bread is good and chewy, and the pre-cooked bacon adds a little snap to the rest of the sandwich’s softness. Since it is intended for breakfast, a time of day when most people are averse to strong flavors, it’s not a bad combination. 3.5 out of 5
