Fish McBites Are Made From Fish Certified To Come From An Eco-Friendly Sustainable Source

HONOLULU – For a limited time, McDonald’s Restaurants of Hawaii is offering a new menu item, Fish McBites – crispy, tender, tasty poppable pieces of flaky Alaska Pollock.

Fish McBites not only are delicious, but also are made from quality fish certified by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) to come from a sustainable fishery. McDonald’s has been supporting sustainable fishing for more than 10 years, and is the first national restaurant chain to adopt the Marine Stewardship Council’s blue ecolabel on all of its fish packaging. The MSC certification supports McDonald’s commitment to quality, eco-friendly sustainable ingredients and to helping customers make more conscious food choices.

Customers will be able to enjoy Fish McBites in three convenient sizes to accommodate any appetite – Snack (3 oz.), Regular (5 oz.), and Shareable (10 oz), as well as a fourth entrée option in the Happy Meal®. McDonald’s dipping sauce selection offered with Chicken McNuggets® and Chicken Selects will be available, in addition to a new tartar sauce for an enhanced Fish McBites taste experience. From February 12 to 14, participating restaurants will offer customers $1.00 Snack size Fish McBites.

“We are excited to bring Fish McBites to our menu lineup, especially for today’s on-the-go lifestyle and for customers wanting another option to our ever-popular Filet-O-Fish® sandwich,” said Melanie Okazaki, regional marketing manager of McDonald’s Restaurants of Hawaii. “Parents also will feel good about including this new Happy Meal in their keiki’s nutritional diet.”

Right about now, you regular readers here are probably either: A.) Completely intrigued and can’t wait to try McDonald’s new Fish McBites; or B.) Will now steer clear of any sign of the Golden Arches. And most likely C.) You’re asking, “Who is Pomai in bed with that they’re getting this much coverage on his blog?”. Truth be told, I’m now celibate. I just do what I’m told. To an extent. As long as it doesn’t involve anything gross or pain. LOL!!! Seriously though (no, not really), this gives me one more reason to eat fast food and still be able to attain 6-pack abs.
