YEP!

McDonalds in Norway tastes about 10x better than in the US
 
2014-02-07 12:37:38 AM  
That's pretty troll tastic.

But the question is, how do these viking big macs taste? Are they the same pseudo-meat we have here in the states, or does EU law extend to the quality of beef sold at fast food restaurants?

/have to admit that I crave one of the small mcdoubles or whatever they call them now, once in a while

Not a photoshop. And that's in Safari on my iPad so ad-block isn't really an option. Seriously Fark, that's a new level of lame.

Don't blame the EU for the most expensive Big Macs in Europe; Norway and Switzerland are most decidedly not EU members.

Why the fark does McDonalds even exist there, then? The only justification for eating McDonalds crap is that it's cheap.

I lived in Serbia from '89-'91, and I remember the food at their McDonald's tasting better than here in the U.S.   Not 10x, better, but there was a difference.

fark yeah,

I remember when Mcdonalds opened in the the town I lived there in Colombia, I took a coworker there for her bday lunch and two farking meal deals were like 20 US.

That is cheap compared to everything else. Oslo is incredibly expensive. But they have a living wage (and a non-materialist culture), so it balances out. This is a land where middle-age men with white-collar office jobs happily drive cars that teenagers in the US wouldn't be caught dead in. Think: crappy ford from the 1990s.

Nahh, it is because you did not have it as often, it was a treat, I thought the same thing, until I came back to the states, had some, then went back to Colombia and had it there(a week apart) and it was meh all over.

Huh?  This is from my iPad about 5 minutes ago, and I don't see the huge ad that you give (as well as very different tab formatting, etc).  Exactly what iPad / iOS version are you using?

It's Europe.  There's a good chance it's horse meat labeled as beef.
