FAST FOOD NEWS: McDonald’s Chipotle BBQ Shakin’ Flavor Seasoning

McDonald's Chipotle BBQ Flavor Seasoning

Last year, McDonald’s began testing their Shakin’ Flavor Seasoning in St. Louis and in parts of California. It was originally offered with French fries, but was later an option with Chicken McNuggets. How the Shakin’ Flavor Seasoning works is explained in the image above.

French fry seasoning packets aren’t new to McDonald’s, they’re a popular item in the Asian market. Here in the U.S., the seasoning packets originally came in three flavors — Garlic Parmesan, Spicy Buffalo, and Zesty Ranch. But McDonald’s has also been testing a Chipotle BBQ flavor.

Testing has been going on for almost a year, but there hasn’t been any news of plans to roll out McDonald’s Shakin’ Flavor Seasoning nationwide.

If you’ve tried any of the flavors, share your thoughts in the comments.

  1. No wonder their sales are suffering. The one thing that would get me in the door they won’t roll out nationwide.

  2. Have a sneaky suspicion they would require a certain purchase to get the packet. Or charge extra for it.

  3. There’s a banner advertising this at my local McDonalds. I live in a small town in Northern California.
    Weird they’d offer it here, if it isn’t going nationwide.

  4. they aren’t that great…didn’t expect a new flavor when these have been selling terribly around here. the ranch one is disgusting. I get the garlic parmesan ones for free and save them for my popcorn. Everything else is salty enough

  5. I remember Burger King tried this out in the mid-2000s, first with cheese and then with bbq seasoning. Back when I could actually stomach eating at BK.
