With its latest breakfast addition, McDonald's is hoping to make mornings a little sweeter.

On Wednesday, February 20, the chain rolled out "Donut Sticks" nationwide. McDonald's is offering the sugary, fried treats through its McCafé brand and intends for customers to pair them with premium roast coffees or other hot beverages.

"Because donuts and coffee are a 'perfect pair,' we're excited to announce McCafé Donut Sticks this week as a little sweet to go with our premium roast McCafé coffee," a spokesperson for the company told INSIDER. "For a limited time, customers can enjoy the delicious combo of Donut Sticks and McCafé coffee during breakfast hours at participating restaurants nationwide."

When McDonald's first announced the product, the deep-fried, golden-brown dough sticks immediately drew comparisons to Dunkin's "Donut Fries" and Burger King's "Funnel Cake Fries." Although the Donut Fries were available for a short time during the summer of 2018, Dunkin' Brands CEO David Hoffman said the snacks "quickly became one of the best-performing limited-time offer bakery items in recent brand history."

I opted for six and waited as McDonald's prepared a fresh batch of Donut Sticks. Before calling my number, one employee poured what looked to be a generous amount of cinnamon sugar on top of my Donut Sticks and shook the bag they were in to cover each stick with a sweet top coat.

I walked away with nine fries, which cost $2.29 at the Burger King location I visited.

And while McDonald's Donut Sticks are served for breakfast, Burger King's Funnel Cake Fries don't seem to be intended as a breakfast snack.

The sticks looked fluffy and somewhat flaky under their cinnamon sugar coating, while the fries much more closely resembled their potato-based counterparts, albeit darker in color and with a powdered sugar dusting.

McDonald's sticks were also bigger than Burger King's fries, with roughly two Funnel Cake Fries equaling the thickness of a single Donut Stick.

The McDonald's Donut Sticks smelled liked a classic doughnut, but, when I bit into one, I thought it was a bit flakier, airier, and chewier than a typical doughnut.

I imagined that, if dipped in coffee or another hot beverage, the Donut Sticks might disintegrate almost instantly.

Burger King's Funnel Cake Fries were true to their name

In my opinion, these didn't really taste like a traditional doughnut, either. Instead, Burger King's Funnel Cake Fries tasted fairly close to the classic carnival snack. They were much sweeter and boasted less cinnamon than McDonald's sticks, and I thought the instant sweetness of the powdered sugar combined with the crunch of the fried dough really worked well.

Business Insider asset management reporter Meghan Morris preferred Burger King's Funnel Cake Fries to McDonald's Donut Sticks.

"The Burger King fries taste closer to a churro in a positive way," she said.

Kara Chin, a producer of Business Insider Today, agreed.

"The Burger King [Funnel Cake Fries] were much crispier versus the soggier McDonald's [Donut Sticks]," Chin said. "The McDonald's ones were more doughy and tasted like a cross between a zeppole and a donut."

Chin also had the opportunity to taste Dunkin's Donut Fries when they were available on the market. She said that, in her opinion, they more closely resembled the McDonald's Donut Sticks than the Burger King Funnel Cake Fries, but that none of the three were exactly alike.

Business Insider's senior health reporter Emma Court was the only taste tester who preferred the McDonald's option.

Overall, in my opinion, the Donut Sticks didn't seem like a breakfast food, but more of a dessert. And some of us thought that the Donut Sticks and Funnel Cake Fries could have used a dipping sauce.

These snacks were small but mighty. In my experience, both were heavier and oilier than a traditional doughnut or breakfast pastry, so it was a bit much for many of us to eat at the start of the work day. Don't get me wrong - they were undoubtedly delicious, but, to me, they seemed like more of a dessert or festival snack than an early-morning pick-me-up. (Granted, unlike McDonald's Donut Sticks, Burger King's Funnel Cake Fries aren't served as a breakfast item.)

With that in mind, many of us who tried the two treats thought that adding a little something extra could transform both the Donut Sticks and Funnel Cake Fries into fan favorites. Multiple people inquired about whether or not either product came with a dipping sauce, and there was a general consensus that a chocolate or frosting-based dipping sauce would pair nicely with the snacks.
