We Eat it So You Don't Have To: 'Naughty' Green Burger

'We Try It' is a regular series where we try the latest off-beat eats.

Whether you have played it or not, most people are at least familiar with the game Angry Birds. You know, that game where you throw disgruntled birds at rudimentarily built fortresses that are defending evil green pigs? 

In honor of the impending release of the new Angry Birds film in China, McDonalds has released several new Angry Bird themed menu items, the most intriguing of which would have to be the Naughty Green Pork Burger.

At first glance, the burger raises some questions. How could a bun that color possibly taste good? Is it possible that its strange hue of green provides the consumer with one full serving of vegetables? (Unfortunately, it does not.)

The burger itself wasn’t half bad. It wasn’t as large, or as succulent as the advertisement made it appear, but then again they never are. The burger included a pork patty, an egg, lettuce, a mysterious sauce with a hint of jalapenos, and the notorious green buns. Setting one back a mere RMB28 (that’s for the burger alone), it is quite satisfying, and we are "lovin' it."
