McDonalds Egg white Delight

Of the 5 McD's in a 5mi range of me, one is promoting the Egg white Delight [EWDL].

Quick analysis--
same English muffin as an Egg McMuffin[EMcM]
same Canadian bacon as EMcM
different cheese
and, of course, different egg

From McD's website, nutritional info:

Calories 300 Calories 250
Total Fat 12g 19% Total Fat 7g 11%
Carbs 32g 11% Carbs 32g 11%
Protein 18g Protein 18g
Sodium 780mg 33% Sodium 800mg 34%

Same Protein, same carbs, 58% of the fat, a touch more sodium

I had a EWDL this morning.
It was "fine," not a showstopper but definitely as good as an EMcM. It Tasted less salty. At least for now, it was fresh and not dry.
I forgot to check and see how the English muffin was toasted/covered in a spread.

Aside from the fat reduction, it might also be better because of the cheese-- one of the oddities of an EMcM is that I feel I usually lose a portion of the yellow cheese because it sticks to the wrapper. In the EWDL there was not a cheese-sticking problem.

      I'm in Northern VA now, outside of DC.

      I've made that my "avatar" but i don't think it's noticeable enough, and I haven't trained myself to sign off each post.

      In NoVA, it was less than 50ยข more.

        I wondered about 5 McD's in Beijing . . . but hey, its McD's. LOL. Next time I am in drive thru I'll check the amount here. I think its closer to $1 more, but I could be wrong.

          Oh, there're zillions of McD's in BJ, and they all deliver on motorbikes through a centralized call-in system.

            I was wrong, I misread the menu. The eggwhite mcmuffin is the same price as the regular.

            McDonald's delivery. Images of clowns on motorbikes zooming through the alleys of a Chinese city. Something out of a 70's Pink Panther movie.

            I know, they don't wear clown outfits, it was just an image that flashed thru my brain.
