You want me to think about coming back to McDonald's? Start using tasty fat to cook your fries again.

/well, back for lunch that is
//had breakfast there this morning
///only good thing on the menu is that nommy sausage and egg biscuit
//sounds fat
/am fat

Oh snap, Wendy! You go girl. Too bad your tweets are about the tastiest thing left in your entire repertoire.

Is it still going to have that odd fake plastic taste to it?

/McD's burgers just taste horribly fake.
/Their chicken sandwiches are the only decent thing on the menu that taste like actual food.

Nothing like fresh, hot, clown meat between 10 year old buns.  In other news McDonalds has become the official fast food sponsor of this years, 'Gathering of the Juggalos'.
 
2018-03-06 12:44:10 PM  
TFA says a "fresh" patty cooks 20 to 40 seconds faster than a frozen one. Wonder if they'll consider switching other items to refrigerated rather than frozen for the same reason. With their target time from order to serving, 20 to 40 seconds is a BFD.
 
2018-03-06 12:58:08 PM  
i wonder if they put sugar in their beef too??

there are approx 15 different names on food ingredient lists for sugar.  it's the food industries way of hiding it and giving the nation heart disease, among other health problems.

the FDA is just a revolving door of good people who used to work in the food industry.   nothing to see there.

TFA: McDonald's has tried to walk the line between cheap deals and better quality food over the last few years.

Did I miss something?
 
2018-03-06 01:49:40 PM  
Oh look. It's McDonald's biennial attempt at "premium" burgers.

I don't think they thought through the marketing campaign on this one. We promise that these burgers will be really good because unlike all our other burgers these are fresh.

No, McDonalds fries are in fact better than Five Guys. McDonalds cooks their fries until they are crispy. Five Guys takes their fries out of the fryer when they are still limp. Those are indisputable facts.

McDonalds fries have about 20 ingredients in them because they are a peeled, processed and coated product. If you have ever biatched about American food processing the McDonalds fry is exhibit A.

The Five guys fry is a potato, unpeeled, sliced within the hour, fried in peanut oil with a little salt added. I don't know where you go but all the Five Guys I've been to fry them until crispy.

I gave Five Guys several chances at several different locations. They were all the same: limp greasy fries in massive quantities. Its a very common complaint. Having boxes of potatoes all over the place does not mean they know how to cook fries.
 
2018-03-06 05:02:16 PM  
I tried one of these at least a year ago when it was being demoed at a few locations. It was a lot tastier than the usual McDonald's dried-out patty. Much more comparable to a Five Guys or Wendy's patty.

It's still McDonald's, but I'd order it again if they roll them out nationwide.

No, he's not. Five Guys fry cooks take them out of the fryer before they are crispy. They end up limp and soggy in the bag.

Five Guys does not universally have crispy fries. They are more often a soggy mess. It's a common complaint from all over the country. If you have stumbled across a few locations that do cook them correctly, you are very much in the minority. The Five Guys around here are not better than McDonalds, just greasier and much more expensive. McDonalds isn't haute cuisine but their quality control is apparently way better than Five Guys.

French Fries should not crunch.

And 'crispy' and 'limp' are not the only choices.  There is a delightful middle ground.

Alas, I will never again get *good* french fries.  Back on the farm, we grew our own potatoes.  I've never found any fries anywhere to compare to the ones Mom made.

Of course, she used beef fat, like McDonald's used to do.

And people wonder why I miss Dick's in Seattle.  Fries cooked to order, starting with a whole, raw potato.  You place your order and you can see someone put the potato in the slicer and then dump the fresh sliced potato into the oil.
