Noam Chimpsky: I don't understand how they sell sausage mcmuffin for a buck and over twice that amount for sausage mcmuffin with egg. I just get two or three saus-muffs for the price of one with ovum.

Next problem: They want over twice as much for a big mac than a mcdouble, just because it has some crappy special sause and some other stuff that ends up on your shirt while you are eating the thing while driving.

Next problem: The give you a smaller sized coffee or drink when you order the meal deal than if you get the stuff a la  carte, which makes it an even worse deal than it already was.


When I've got a hankering for a Big Mac I get a McDouble with pickles, onion, and Mac Sauce. Haven't had a McD's charge extra for it yet. Granted, I only get one a couple times a year.

Subby; how is this asinine?

Wholesale Ass: Once they raise the price no one will buy it. So they will keep losing.


You're joking right?  Make it $3 and they will still buy it.  Most of their customers aren't exactly the brightest.  I would know; I worked there before.  I just had a mcdouble a couple days ago after going about a year without fast food burgers.  I almost threw up after.

And they took cherry berry chilller off the menu. This I cannot forgive.

jehovahs witness protection: $1.89 in New York City.

Not that I'll eat the swill served at McDonald's, but this is just another of THOUSANDS of reasons I won't go to New York.


Then why in Hell do you know the price of a McDouble in NYC?
 
2013-02-03 08:58:28 PM  
McDouble plain, add Mac sauce. Good stuff.

I believe they make more money from leasing land for restaurants than food anyway, so I doubt they are going anywhere.

Oh, you never go there? Another reason to visit!

why is everything twice as expensive there?  One would think that with all that volume, things would be cheaper.


Real estate.  At least for the chains.  There are a lot of little independent fast-food-type places around town though that can be jaw-droppingly cheap.

Oh I hear this all the time from people and I just think what a load of rubbish obnoxious I am better than others bullshiat.

Now I look after my health and eat very low fat,  low sugar and low salt.  I actually hardly eat bread at all or bread substitutes and I never ever have soft drink I only on most occassions drink water  but on occassions I can go into
McDonalds
KFC
Hungry Jacks (Burger king)

or other fatty food outlets and not throw up.

It is junk but it is edible and when I read comments such as the above I just roll my eyes.

Relatively Obscure: GGracie: Those things have real beef in them?

Yes?


100% beef.

At any rate, a couple times a month I order the McDouble, it's on the $1.39 menu here in Canada. Except I get mine dressed like a Mac for an extra 20 cents. The only difference is no sesame seeds on the bun and less bred on the bun. Essentially the same taste as a mac with the same toppings for almost $ 3 less.

I'll take the classy route and get my culture from jittery hand held camera piracy on the intertubes.  Besides Branson is way too colorful for my taste.

McDoubles have been more than a dollar here in Bakersfield for over a year now. They went up to around $1.49 here in 2012. This isn't new news.

Makes sense.  They probably expected people to order a McDouble and then get some profitable fries or soda, but every time i'm in line for my coffee, the dude in front of me is ordering five... no wait, seven McDoubles, no wait, he just got a text from his friend, nine McDoubles.

White_Scarf_Syndrome: picturescrazy: White_Scarf_Syndrome: That grilled onion cheddar burger mentioned in the article was GUH-ROSS!  Even after spreading the onions evenly instead of a shiatty pile in the middle.

I was so tempted to get another Fish Filet again after the one I had the other day...after the thread other day.

Clearly this ramen with rooster sauce has impacted my ability to remain coherent.

What can I say, I love fast food.

/sound fat
//pic to prove otherise

Mmmm ramen with rooster sauce.

/sounds fat
//pictures to prove I am

I got tired of the asian hot oil condiment jar thingy in the ramens.  The one with all the oil and delicious flaky bits.  Usually the cock sauce is reserved for shiatty tombstones and french fries. All I had in addition was some lays sour cream and onion chips.  I tried to fuse these with the shrimp cock sauce ramen just now, but it didn't work.

I'll get back to you when I've figured out the potato chip/ramen combo, but right now I'm thinking of entering a chili competition.


Drained ramen, with about half of the seasoning packet (on the drained noodles) and hoisin sauce to taste, tastes surprisingly good. Lately I've been experimenting more with rice-based crock pot cooking, but it's nice to have fallbacks...
 
2013-02-03 10:06:22 PM  
And no word on the McSpicy? I think it's called that.

The crappy dollar menu chicken sandwich.  I get that when I want to be healthy.

What's the filet o fish and other sandwich combo? Can't be beef...gotta be chicken. Right? RIGHT?

Because Sausage Mcmuffin with Egg is the single item served at Mcdonalds worth eating, and is not easily  duplicated at another common fastfood franchise.

/the burger pricing is stupid too, but all the fastfoods do something similar

Heh.  On the VERY freaking rare occasions I get fast food, it's usually just a double cheeseburger from the value menu.  One or two of those and that's it.  No drink, no fries.  They aint making no profit margin off me.

McDonald's is kinda bleh tasting,  but I still like a burger now and then from Wendy's or Burger King.

McDonald's burgers are more like ground up cardboard with pepper on them.

McDonalds actually came up with the McDouble when they wanted to move the double cheeseburger off their dollar menu.  The McDouble only has 1 slice of cheese; the double cheeseburger has 2.

L.D. Ablo: Just use more isolated oat product in the "burgers."  Worked for Taco Bell.


It would make their burgers considerably healthier, too. If they were open about what they were doing and touted it as an effort to improve the nutrition of their food I'll bet people would keep right on eating their crap. Some people wouldn't care and the rest already think their burgers are 75% soy. Turn your enemy's strengths into weaknesses and your own weaknesses as strengths, to paraphrase some asshole.

Worse deal: my daughter wanted just hotcakes, and they cost $2.80 for three of them! When I contemplate the profit margin in a 95 cent pancake, I feel less sympathy for their minor loss on dollar menu burger.

Twice the volume in sales at four times the rent cost.
