There is a new tailgating option coming to Kansas City. Or something like that.
BurgerBusiness.com, which is a real website and seems awesome, reports that McDonald's is coming out with a new boxed meal in the Kansas City market. And as you can see in the photo above, this is a Chiefs sponsorship, which means a Chiefs blog can write about it.
McDonald's for the first time has brought to the U.S. the multi-person boxed meal idea it first tried in Australia in 2010. In the Kansas City, Mo., market, the chain is heralding the start of the NFL season with the Blitz Box, a boxed meal that includes two Quarter Pounders with Cheese, two medium fries and a 20-piece serving of Chicken McNuggets. The Blitz Box is priced at $14.99.
Fun fact about me: I stopped eating most fast food about a year ago. No big reason why. I just stopped. I used to eat fast food somewhat regularly (at least once a week) but the longer you don't eat it the harder it is to think about eating it again. So I haven't eaten at McDonald's in a long time. For whatever reason, the one fast food I don't have this mental block with is Winstead's in Kansas City. Maybe it's the onion rings.
Back to this Blitz Box. The size of this thing makes me think some people are going to tailgate with this. I don't think that's a good idea. Fast food is not tailgating.
Is this the best idea ever or the worst?
