ArkAngel: GoldenEagle: the_vegetarian_cannibal: I'm more amused by the fact that you would visit to New York and the first thing you think of is, "Hey, I should go eat at McDonald's."

Manhattan has the highest concentration of McDonald's "restaurants" in the world.

Worthless pathetic documentary. Anyone who eats 5000 calories a day and does no exercise will harm their health. No matter where the food is from

In other news, inflation effects the things left out of the government calculations the most. Like food.
A dollar isn't what it used to be. Considering a dollar is now what maybe 3 cents used to be one wonders how mickey D's can make money on it at all.

undernova: McDouble plain, add Mac sauce. Good stuff.



I used to do that too. They charge a quarter or so for the sauce, which is crazy, but hey, still not bad.

AverageAmericanGuy: Want to make money, McD? Serve breakfast all day.


At least the Egg McMuffins, I don't care if they drop the hash browns (although how different could the fryer temp be) or the hotcakes, but I'd rather an EMM than a McDonalds hamburger. For burgers I prefer In-N-Out or Wendy's.

FunkOut: At least with McDonald's, I can go in there and get a hot chocolate made from steamed milk, chocolate syrup, and real whipped cream. Go to Tim Hortons and they overcharge for hot water mixed with chocolate powder mix containing depleted uranium and sawdust.


And, apparently, copious amounts of salt. Why is Timmies hot chocolate so salty!?!

Noam Chimpsky: I don't understand how they sell sausage mcmuffin for a buck and over twice that amount for sausage mcmuffin with egg.


That's the best thing on their menu.  If they served breakfast all day I'd eat the 1 buck sausage muffin every time.

When I was a poor college student without access to a kitchen (and still eating beef) I would on occasion order these when I wanted a burger. I regretted it whenever I ate them because they tasted like crap but sometimes you just crappy food full of grease. Then I learned to cook, got a job, and ordered the quarter pounder with cheese when I wanted to clog my heart with grease. Then I lost all want of beef and have ordered shiatty chicken tenders when I have no other options other than McDonalds (like at an airport). If American cheese didn't taste like byproduct now (and I still ate beef) I would have bought one today because I kind of want one (except that whole I don't eat beef thing and ew, American Cheese).

This sort of thing always hurts the homeless population. You can get all your daily calories for $4 a day with the McDouble.

Guest: oukewldave: 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.


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.

sir or madam,

the chipotle parody on south park is the pinnacle of comedy for a ton of ppl here.

and i roll my eyes because i am better than others.

i didn't even read the whole thread so this comment might be redundant, but i am above that.

the downside is that this new reply box frightens and bewilders me.

Choosing chicken over beef is a cardinal sin. You're a bad person and you should feel bad.

I stopped eating mammal because it just lost it taste to me. Like I can taste beef and pork in much the same way paper tastes like paper, bland and sort of unpleasant. Admittedly I cannot eat paper but if it were edible it is on the same level of enjoyment as beef, pork and any other mammal meat so I just stopped full stop (gave up lard and gelatin too). I always liked poultry though. If it flies, has wings, and belongs in the Avian family I will eat it. (It doesn't even need to fly, I'll happily eat an ostrich.) It sucks when I smell some really good tacos, then taste it and it's like "Ew" or "Meh".

I ate one slice of bacon two years ago. It was delicious but I couldn't eat more than one.

Basically, it comes down to businessmen doing this "because they can" since Canadians just got so used to the idea paying higher prices for everything when the US dollar was higher,  - even though it was like 8 years ago.

I am very skeptical of these folks that say they get upset stomach's from eating at McDonalds's. I seldom eat there, but have never gotten bad food from them. The drive through seems to always screw up my order, though. Las time I ordered 1 hamburger with ketchup and got 3.

Sounds like a problem with your standard(')s (I put that superfluous apostrophe there for you so you'll feel good about getting a little something extra.)

I am skeptical of people who say they have never gotten bad food from them. I used to like McDonalds. I remember when I was a teenager--I used to enjoy their quarter-pounder with cheese. Every year or two I get all waxing nostalgic and imagine I'd like to have one of those burgers I remember so fondly. I go and order one--and after one bite--know why I haven't stepped foot inside there in years. The "cheese" isn't; the onions are reconstituted; the lettuce has blister rust; the meat is gray and looks to be what Rick Deckard would call "boiled dog."

Speaking of that: I think suggesting your average Voigt-Kampff test-taker "go eat some Mickey D's" might just bag you a Nexus 6 (should you ever be looking to retire one).

/Stay away from subsequent questions about mothers.

I've tasted things you people wouldn't believe. Ha! Burgers on fire off the shoulder of a frying pan. I watched charcoal grills glitter in the dark near the Talledega gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like--ahem--tears in Mountain Dew. Time to die.

You get exactly what you pay for when you go to McDonalds.  In general, it is bad.  For the money, it is good.  For just removing the hunger so you can focus on shiat you need to get done, McDonalds gets the job done.

I used to eat McD's maybe once or month or so, and would only order dollar stuff (McChicken, Double Cheeseburger, McDouble) and water, no fries. McD's would lose money every time I ate there. Then the only thing left on the dollar menu was parfait, fries, and soda. So now I don't go.

I should've started a new paragraph. I was generalizing about the ingredients on other things at that point. I know there isn't lettuce on a QP. And I have had reconstituted onions on there, too. Maybe that's not standard, but I know what those tiny little chopped onions are when I see them. Maybe they ran out that day. Maybe you were in the office shilling on the internet, I don't know. I do know if I want a good tasting burger and don't have time to cook one: it's Sonic or Whataburger. (No cheese though, theirs is crap too.) There hasn't been a really good burger there since the McDLT.

The cheese, while maybe technically "cheese", is complete crap. It's a sorry excuse for cheese. I'm American and outraged that Americans happily let people call that sorry-ass gooey fake orange sh*t American cheese. Throw a big old slice of Rat-Trap cheddar or some fother mucking provolone on there. That's cheese, by FSM's sake.

Pure beef is nice. Thanks, McDonald's, for taking some nice pure beef and making it into a tasteless steamy hunk of boiled dog. I know some alchemists that would like to know your secret for transmogrifying sweet, sweet cow into a tasteless protein wafer. Salt, pepper, grill; tough damn recipe.

At least put the damn beef back in your fries, those were about the only good thing there after you put the kibosh on the McDLT.

Heh.  It's not fake.  You just don't like it.  Which is fine.

Fair enough.  The ones I get don't usually turn out so bad.  Never GREAT, but not bad.

2013-02-04 07:10:35 PM
Oh, and I agree about McD's lettuce.  Just stay away in general.  Last I knew, they continually 'recycled' it (put any loose lettuce that fell off during sandwich manufacture and onto the paper back into the lettuce tub).  Generally ends up with random onions, Big Mac sauce, etc mixed in, as well as being generally wilted and gross.
 
2013-02-04 08:08:08 PM
Protop: always get a McDouble with mac sauce.

Presto, you got a big mac at 1/5 the price, and all it's missing is lettuce and the middle bun.

TerminalEchoes: In before an army of pretentious Farkers pretend to never eat at McD--aw crap. Too late.


I'm not above eating some fast food now and then, but McDonald's is farking terrible.
