Does the McLobster use REAL lobster or just Langostonos (which is what Long John Silvers uses in their "Lobster Bites" and is more prawn than lobster)?

How come our so-called "American" food companies let only the people living outside the US get all the fun and interesting stuff and all they will allow us to have is the plain old sh*t? I'd love to sink my teeth into a Pizza Hut pizza with cocktail weenies in the crust, or a BK Windows 7 Whopper.

I don't know what's in the McLobster, but it doesn't even sort of resemble a real lobster roll.

Any fast food poutine tastes like ass. Real poutine requires real gravy.

For a brief period in the late eighties there were some McDonalds in the southern US that sold beer. Anyone else remember this?

Shamrock Shakes should be available now, no? Are they doing them this year? I don't think I've seen any promotional material locally, but I haven't actually been to a McDonalds in 2013.

Yes there are Shamrock Shakes this year, but you've got until this Sunday night to get your fix before they're taken off the menu again until next March.

I don't know about that. I tried the McPoutine in Montreal. It actually wasn't that bad at all. Wasn't that good either but it was better than what I would expect from McDonald's.

Those sound horrible.  It's most likely just a way for the foreign market to experience American excess.

And I would think McDonald's fries would be too thin and limp to hold up to gravy and cheese curds?

Becuase in America they have an established "brand identity", whereas overseas they don't, and have to experiment more to fit in with the local culture (ie: the caricature that culture has of what it means to be American). In short, they don't do anything weird here because they are too profitable as is, so no need to rock the boat.

In my experience, A&W's is surprisingly all right, but I agree in general. KFC's poutine is one that I can say definitely sucks ass, which is probably where they get their gravy anyway.

Furthermore, where the hell are people getting McPoutine? I'm assuming it's exclusive to Quebec?

I suppose you could have a McDonald's International in various larger markets ... that sell all these items. Market it as a bit upscale than "regular" McDonald's, where you might spend say $8-$10 on a meal instead of $6-8.

That's got to be the worst excuse I have ever read. If you were correct, Burger King wouldn't be so deep into the stock market sh*tter that it is now.


And American food companies have a hate-on towards Americans. Case in point: Coca Cola with REAL sugar in just about every nation on Earth but the US. Guess their attitude is "F*CK the Yankees! Let them grow fat and explode on HFCS!".

Or just that HFCS is subsidized by the US government to encourage/support corn agriculture and sugar cane imports have some hefty tariffs on them.

Why do we need to import sugar? We should have farms in Hawaii and the continental US, don't we?

We do, but the sugar plantations/farms in Hawaii are minuscule compared to places like Brazil with a lot of land mass. It's the same reason chocolate is imported: It could technically grow in some parts of the US, but in any significant quantity.

The other part of that is the aforementioned corn subsidies. Much of the continental US is rich with land suitable for corn. It's one of (maybe  the?) largest food crops produced in the US. The government heavily subsidizes farmers to keep them growing corn. Part of those subsidies go to the manufacturing of corn syrup products. That makes corn syrup very cheap for domestic factories and mills.

It makes financial sense for companies like Coca-Cola to use HFCS domestically because it's something like half the cost of importing sugar, in sufficient quantities to keep up with demand, and is less likely to have a supply disruption due to shipping mishaps, political instability, etc.

I was in Tokyo in 2011 and ran across the "Big Idaho Burger":
* Two quarter pound patties
* Bacon
* Double cheese
* A full patty-sized hash brown

My first thought: Damn. The Japanese understand America better than we do!

Sugar is still produced in the continental U.S.  I make a point of only buying sugar from Texas.  It is also grown in Louisiana.

The Gulf Coast used to have huge sugar plantations, but when the gub'mint started propping up the Midwest corn industry to stabilize the food supply, the excess corn started to be made into corn syrup. The sugar plantations couldn't compete with a sweetener that was produced, essentially for free, subsidized by the American taxpayer.

Correct, I looked that up after the fact. It still stands there is no financial incentive for companies in the US to use cane sugar even it it were locally grown. Corn subsidies are too pervasive and they would essentially need to build up farming infrastructure for sugar cane to get it in sufficient quantities.

But if you are really jonesing for Coke with real sugar, find a Latin or Hebrew grocery store. They often carry it.

I always laugh when I see people spending extra money on Mexican Coke.  Just buy the Kosher stuff, it's the same thing.

I laugh extra hard when I'm in the Seattle area, because they can get full-sugar Coke from Canada.  But they still load up on Mexican Coke at Whole Foods.  They'll bring their eco-sensitive hemp reusable tote bags to save the dying gay baby whales, and then buy Coke that has to be trucked in from 2,500 miles away when they can get the same stuff just an hour away.

But then again nobody ever lauded people from Seattle for their ability to think.  That's why the tech companies import 60,000 H1Bs into the area.

McDonald's doesn't have beer in Russia. However, every other fast food place does. Subway, KFC, Wendy's, Burger King, Sbarro, and all the local chains as well. Because of this, I always wondered why McDonald's decided to not serve beer here.

Because fark you, that's why.
