Clearly, the price of stuff has been going up. A Big Mac that used to cost roughly $1.60 now costs around $4.33. But there are other signs that our governments have gotten too crazy in printing money.
- Burger King onion rings don’t have real onion. Those cost cutting bastards.
- McDonald’s started charging you for the sauce that comes with McNuggets. Yeah they’re a bunch of fatherless children.
- No free smiles at McDonald’s. They took them off the menu. Inflation.
So now you know.
McDonald’s is very, very good at giving people what they want. At most malls, I always see the longest lines at McDonald’s… and it’s not because they serve customers slowly. Yet I very rarely see people buy a salad (especially the entrée salad). The salads there are actually pretty damn good in my opinion. Of fast food restaurants, McDonald’s has the best salad in my opinion. Other chains just slap some vegetables together and give you a packet of dressing. McDonald’s seems to put in a lot of effort by giving you a medley of flavours (e.g. grilled vegetables, bacon, cheese) and textures (those crunchy bits).
Unfortunately, I don’t think that any of my friends have actually even tried the salad at McDonald’s. Everybody I know will say that McDonald’s is bad for you. But they still eat there. I guess people are just addicted to the trashier items on McDonald’s menu.
What it comes down to it, most people are just talk. McDonald’s has often been blamed for the rise in obesity in first world countries. In my opinion, more people should be blaming themselves. They talk about eating healthy but don’t bother to actually go out and try to eat better. I’m sure that McDonald’s would offer a lot of healthy fare if its customers cared. But when its customers don’t even give healthier items a chance, it is hard for McDonald’s to do the right thing.
Sorry McDonald’s salad, nobody loves you. Not even those douchey vegetarians.
There must be crack cocaine in them thar burgers. Or something. Because despite all the people that hate on McDonald’s, it is almost always the busiest restaurant/fast food joint in any food court that I have been too. They always have the longest lineups and it probably isn’t because they serve their customers slowly like Subway or Harvey’s (restaurants which make your sub or burger with the toppings you pick… a slow tedious process).
I don’t know how McDonald’s does it, but the burgers have this magical delicious smell. And other burgers just don’t have that magical smell. I am guessing that it is somebody’s full-time job to figure out how to make the food smell like awesomeness. And smell is really important because most foods will taste like what they smell like. If you eat anything while standing over those sewage covers on the street… your food just isn’t going to taste very good.
At least here in Canada, McDonald’s is pricier than in the United States. You can get real food and much larger portions at Chinese restaurants for pretty much the same price. But McDonald’s is still crazy busy all the time even though they are probably using cheaper ingredients.
Even chefs (e.g. Anthony Bourdain) eat at McDonald’s. It’s crazy like that.
