"McDonald's may raise price of $1 McDouble due to rising beef costs"

Those things have real beef in them?

And is this guy eating or hurling?

Just use more isolated oat product in the "burgers."  Worked for Taco Bell.

The McDouble is awful. It's nothing but beef, ketchup and those onion-flavored cardboard bits. Pretty much the only burger I'll eat there anymore is the Daily Double. $1.89 or so, but at least it has some honest vegetation on it.

All restaurants that offer those $1 burgers lose money on them. THAT'S THE FRIGGIN POINT.

You lure people into the restaurant with that and then hope they buy fries and drink (enormous profit margins) with it.

Course, I'm not going in there and tearing my insides up with that shiat. You folks can though!

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.

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.

I certainly hope you only eat meat and cheese and no bun. Eating vegetable matter is not manly. Bread products are only for women and children.

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.

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.

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.

Marc L'Hommedieu: 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.


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.

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.


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

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).

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.

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.

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.

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
