McDelivery Day in Pittsburgh: Throwback to the 90s

This post about Global McDelivery Day is a sponsored post brought to you by McDonald’s. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

Did you know that McDonald’s has been delivering in Pittsburgh for a year now? This anniversary comes just in time for a global celebration, McDelivery Day! While this feature is still relatively new to our area, McDonald’s has been offering this service at nearly 12,000 restaurants around the world for over two decades! This is totally worth celebrating with a party like it’s the 1990’s!

’90s Twist on Global McDelivery Day

On Thursday, July 19, you will have your chance to get your hands on a piece of the McDelivery Throwback Collection. It is “a selection of fun, ‘90s inspired items you can wear or use whenever and wherever you order McDelivery”. Think socks, bandanas, t-shirts, pins, and pop sockets!

To get these items, all you have to do is place a McDelivery order of $5 or more through Uber Eats on Thursday, July 19 and a special swag item will be added to your order** at no extra cost. This sounds like a fun way to celebrate the success of the McDelivery business model, doesn’t it?

Personally, I’d have no shame wearing these socks that are slated to be part of the fun surprises delivered on the 19th. (Fries are my weakness!) The only way you can get your hands on this swag is by placing a McDelivery order, so don’t miss out!

The Scoop on McDelivery Day

McDonald’s already is making quick eats easy with their dining room and drive-thru service, but they have taken it up a few notches with the McDelivery service. As I mentioned, this service just came to Pittsburgh last summer with Uber Eats. Personally, I’ve used it a few times when I’ve forgotten breakfast and my husband has driven Uber and delivered many a brown bag of fries and burgers to hungry ‘Burghers in our city. It is super convenient! I’m really excited that they are surprising and delighting customers with this fun celebration.

McDonald’s Signature Crafted Recipe Sandwiches

*articles may contain affiliate links* This summer, a new line has come to McDonald’s – the McDonald’s Signature Crafted Recipe Sandwiches. I got a chance to test out two of them – have you tried them yet?

McDonald’s Signature Crafted Recipe

The McDonald’s Signature Crafted Recipe line of sandwiches brings three amazing flavor combinations, all with fresh and tasty ingredients. It’s a build-your-own experience, starting from the recipe (Pico Guacamole, Sweet BBQ, or Maple Bacon Dijon) > adding the protein (100% beef, crispy chicken, or grilled chicken) > then picking your bun (artisan roll or sesame seed bun). You can also add a drink and fries to make it a meal.

Now, due to my just finishing up the Whole30, it took me a little while to get my body ready to handle the flavors and additions that are found in these options. I have to say, it was worth the wait! Which two do you think made it in my bag?

I headed to my local McDonald’s and gave the Sweet BBQ with 100% Beef and Pico Guacamole with Artisan Grilled Chicken a try. (For the purposes of this review, I tried two sandwiches but will tell you I had to cut them in half and got very full on a “whole” of each type I tried! These are big sandwiches! Also, I had to take off the buns because gluten and I are not friends…but I have a good source who confirmed they’re delicious…I trust him since he eats the food I cook! *wink*)

Look at all this guacamole on the Pico Guacamole Chicken sandwich! This called for a few napkins, but no complaints from me, the guac-lover!

And that bacon…so delicious!

These are premium sandwiches that were inspired by people just like you and me – people looking for something zesty, tasty, and delicious. Check out this video from McDonald’s:

If you’re lovin’ it, head out to McDonald’s and try your own favorite combination. You can read more about all of the recipes over on McDonalds.com.
