When you think of McDonald's, you might think hamburgers or french fries. You probably don't think of snow crab, but that's what everyone is talking about at a few McDonald's locations in the Bay Area.
You remember that there were a couple of south bay McDonalds locations that introduced Gilroy Garlic Fries awhile back and they were an instant hit. The same owner is again tapping into the Bay Area food scene for inspiration. The McDonalds Crab Sandwich consists of Atlantic snow crab, celery, and seasoned mayonnaise, lettuce and tomato on a sourdough bun. He’s saying it’s the fast food version of a gourmet sandwich. The new McDonalds Snow Crab Sandwich is 410 calories and costs $8.99.
You can sample the crab sandwich at three locations in San Jose and one in Santa Clara.

If it's a hit, it could be offered soon at 250 Bay Area McDonald's locations.
