jwa007: At one time, in the seventies, this would have been a real deal.  Nowadays, though, those fries are soggy and crappy and not near as good as they once were.


A McDonald's hipster.

obenchainr: Also, the new mixture for frying is part of what makes the restaurants so sticky; it turns into a mist and creates a thin, sticky film over almost everything in or near the kitchen.


I don't even want to think about what the other part is.

Uh, yeah.  The "catch" is you have to eat there.

free fry day earlier this week, the fast food giant is offering fans the free Friday fries

That's a lot of alliteration from anxious anchors placed in powerful posts.

... Must get a prostate check?


If you're eating a lot of McDonald's, a colonoscopy is not a bad idea.

Spectrum: I use the McDonald's app. You can get almost any sandwich for $1 once a day through the end of September. I got a buttermilk chicken and a Coke for $2 plus tax, saving $4. I'm eating it right now, so I'm really getting a kick...


If you listen attentively you should be able to hear your arteries clogging up just a bit more as the plaque deposits are created.

Travis_Bickle: tricycleracer: They're really pushing their mobile app and self-order kiosks.  I'd love a peek at their 10 year plan with respect to staffing.

I was in one of those kiosk McD's recently. There was no menu at the counter at all.

I walked out.


Wow. It takes guts to admit you're that petty and intimidated by a touch screen made for illiterate people.

OldJames: Tip: Dunk the fries in sweet & sour sauce


I wonder how the'd be in szechuan sauce.  I guess we'll never know.

jwa007: Corydon: jwa007: oldfarthenry: They used beef tallow instead of vegetable oil back in those glorious days.
Mmmmmmmmmm, beef tallow!

In those days they had the best damn fries around.

It's hard to know if this was really true, or if you all are just old and grumpy and nostalgic.

Old and occasionally nostalgic I'll cop to.  Not really grumpy.  The beef tallow was an ingredient that made a difference in those fries.  Some people objected and they got rid of them.  So it goes.  I think my remembrance of them is based on many things, but one of them is the fries were just tastier, crisper and all around better.


I honestly don't remember them being any different. I think people just like to stick it to the vegetarians.
