McDonald's is unveiling a new seafood snack starting next month: the Fish McBites. The croquette-sized poppers appear to be a fish stick dipper that's similar to a deconstructed Filet o' Fish, which is one of the more polarizing items on the fast food chain's menu.

For the record, we are all for the Filet, minus a bit of the mayo, so being able to control the amount of tartar in these little bite-sized fryers doesn't sound half bad.

There will be three sizes for the McBites: snack, regular, and shareable -- although we all know in America those super-sized versions rarely get shared.

McDonald's made the announcement along with reporting its fourth-quarter results, which beat expectations for profit and same-store sales and provided a much-needed boost for the world's largest restaurant chain. But the Oak Brook-based company still warned of likely weakness in its winter results.

In addition to the new fish bites, they'll be announcing breakfast, burger and chicken items unveiled soon, which the company said are doing well in test markets. We wish that test market was our mouth hole, but oh well.
