I did. Not bad by McD standards. Anyone else have anything to share on it?

    What's a CBO?

      It's their name for the new cheddar, bacon, and onion burger.

      It's decent enough. The mustard sauce is nice, the onions didn't have much flavor, and the burger was almost frighteningly juicy.

        Thanks. I've about had my fill of bacon on stuff.

          Hopefully millions feel the same way.

            Me too. Cut out the damn "stuff" and just give me the bacon! ;-D>

            that's funny (as in "isn't that weird!") -- in France, the CBO was Chicken, Bacon and Onions -- a short-lived special item.

            Pretty forgettable.

              Yup! I've had the burger and the grilled chicken option and I like the chicken a lot better than the burger. More contrast, not as heavy and tasty within a McD context.

            I got one yesterday by accident. Meant to order the Angus Bacon and Cheese. As soon as I got my receipt I knew it wasn't what I wanted but was not sure if I said it wrong or the clerk heard it wrong so just decided to give it a try.

            At any rate, I did not care for it. Prefer raw onion to cooked, ketchup and mustard to bbq sauce and plain old American cheese (or no cheese) to whatever that was on it.

            Other than that it was ok. : )
