McDonald’s Egg White Delight McMuffin

I received a Klout perk to try out the new McDonald’s Egg White Delight McMuffin.  I also received a $1 coupon from McDonald’s Facebook page.  For a few weeks I had been seeing this forced promotion showing up in my Facebook feed, so I clicked on it and signed up for the coupon – printed it out – then signed up and printed one out for my boyfriend and stuck them on my desk.

One morning we decided picking up breakfast would be a good idea because we weren’t quite sure what we wanted. Plus it would be a different sort of “treat” since typically breakfast is an array of things, but typically they’re the same sorts of staple items.

The Egg White Delight is a classic McDonald’s McMuffin breakfast sandwich – the normal fried egg being removed and replaced with egg whites and the cheese being switched out to white cheddar.  The only thing that really remains the same is the English muffin and the Canadian bacon.  According to McDonald’s the sandwich contains 250 calories.

I decided to just get the sandwich as it came because I was having a heck of a time navigating the McDonald’s website the morning we decided to try out the sandwiches (I can now easily find them – foggy brain).

The sandwich I received was very lackluster on the egg front. There was a little bit of egg white on the side, but other than that the egg white was nonexistent.  My sandwich was an English muffin, with cheese and Canadian bacon.  I did add some reduced sugar ketchup onto my sandwich to eat it (since that’s how I eat my breakfast sandwiches).  Taste wise, it was alright ... nothing to brag about and nothing worth putting extra points plus values towards.

Would I repurchase it?  Probably not.  The only exception would be if I were traveling state to state relying on fast food chains as my meal choices.  If that were to happen, perhaps I’d buy another.  Honestly, I’d rather make a healthier and tastier breakfast sandwich at home for half the calories AND points plus values!

BTW - the sandwich is 7 points plus values as served. Not worth it in my opinion!

Have you tried McDonald’s Egg White Delight McMuffin?


  1. You look fabulous

  2. Found your site when I googled how many points in this breakfast sandwhich. Wow! You are going gangbusters on your weight loss journey! Good for you and congrats!

    You totally got screwed on that sandwhich. I bought one this morning and there was so much egg on it that it was falling out. I agree with you that I'd rather make something at home (with lots of veggies!) but sometimes I don't have the time and it's better than some alternatives. I really like it.

    Wishing you ontinued success at losing/maintaining!

  3. Oh no, I think you might have just had a bad 1st experience. There's always plenty of egg on each sandwich. I've lost 52 lbs and I eat the AWESOME Egg White Delight every morning! I love this sandwich so much that I've contacted McDonalds and asked them to offer it 24/7! I don't know if it's the white cheddar or eggs, but I think it's way tastier than the Egg McMuffin. I joke with friends that if McDonalds would offer this 24/7, I'd be to McDonalds what Jarod was to Subway. Yummm! Congratulations on your journey. ;)

  4. You look fabulous. Order the sandwich with no butter and you save even more points. Definitely worth it when you are traveling.

  5. How many points are saved by adding no butter? I'm guessing perhaps 1?

  6. So I saw that you lost 160 lbs with weight watchers I to am with weight watchers I do have a question before you hit goal did you have any hiccups along the way? Like did you gain some of it back then work harder to lose it again ? that's what I'm dealing with right now

    1. Hi Jodi. I'm actually not at goal as of yet, I still have some work to do. I have been a member 5-years as of the 25th and I do struggle. Quite honestly, I struggled for a good half a year last year. I had a lot of changes in my personal life and wasn't dealing with the stress properly (exercise, venting, talking to people) and I started to revert to old habits (stress/emotional eating) and I've actually gained some weight back. Roughly 20 pounds. It's been a struggle because I had surgery in 2013 and with dealing with complications was put on full restrictions. I wasn't able to do anything for almost a year and I maintained during that time, but the trouble began once my "maintenance" ended and I'd been stuck in habits for over a year and life happened and I didn't handle it properly. Right now I'm trying to be mindful. Telling myself I can have what I want, but questioning if I REALLY need something. I find I do better if I'm eating mindfully and exercising regularly ... so I just started back at the gym after a 2-week hiatus due to being sick.

      I hope you're able to strike back, hard and do whatever it is you want to do with your journey. Just remember we've all been there and sometimes it takes talking about it to clear our minds to do what we need to do!
