McDonald's Fans Think The Spicy Quarter Pounder Is Too Hot
Well, what were they expecting from a spicy quarter pounder burger, eh?
The new sandwich has only been on the market since last week - along with a number of other new additions - but some folks have had all the time they need to make their mind up about it.
These nay-sayers reckon the spice is 'too much' and 'overpowers' the normal flavour of the burger.
It's hardly a scotch bonnet chili, right? It can't be that bad can it?
One person said that the burger sauce tastes of tabasco, although it isn't actually clear what McDonald's has added to it.
To be fair, it's something of a Goldilocks paradox, because when they released the spicy chicken nuggets a while back, people complained that they weren't hot enough.
There's just no pleasing everyone, even if you're the world's largest fast food chain.
Of the spicy quarter pounder, one person tweeted: "The tomato sauce tastes like the Tabasco tomato sauce they had for the spicy nuggets. It just overpowered it, and that's all I could taste."

Another commented: "Seeing as the McDonald's spicy nuggets weren't very spicy, I thought I'd try the new spicy quarter pounder. I wish I hadn't, I now can't taste anything."
A third offered: "Spicy quarter pounder sauce is too much. Spoils it."
In case you're wondering what all the fuss is about, you can head on down to any Maccies you like and pick one up, so long as it's before Tuesday 17 November.
They cost around £4.79, but if you really want to you could also add an extra patty for another quid.
As for McDonald's themselves, they're fairly confident that the new burger is going down a treat.
A spokesperson told The Sun: "Our new quarter pounder with cheese range has been an incredibly popular new launch.
"We're delighted to offer our customers the choice of dialling up or turning down the heat; from the spicy quarter pounder for fans of fiery food, to the new quarter pounder deluxe with cool mayo, there's something for everyone to enjoy."
