What Do You Get When You Go To McDonalds? post #1  quote:



I know McDonalds' food is oiley and potentially poisonous, but I have it every now and then, and I've realized something recently... I never just get the meals they offer. I am just making this thread to find out whether there are others like me... or if I'm just a big fat slob.

Typically, when I go to McDonalds, I'll get a Big Mac Meal, plus something like chicken nuggets or a chicken burger or something like that. Sometimes just a cheese burger, if I'm dieting.

I mean, what's with that? You'd think what they offer as a 'meal' would be enough to fill me up? But no, I shove even more gunk into my arteries just to feel satisfied...

So, anyways, let us all know, which of McDonalds' fine menu items do you go for?

I rarely eat McDonald's. when I order I usually get the same items.

Filet O Fish....easy on the sauce, or 6pc Chicken McNuggets with Honey & Mustard dip.

I once had a salad from McD's and it was awful. They really should just stick with burgers & fries.

Geez, I haven;t had a Big Mac in over 10 years! Do they taste the same?

I heard in Europe McDonald's has a totally different taste.

I've only had McDonalds in 4 Countries and it all tasted the same to me. Just different menus in some places. Never had it in Europe though, so who knows?

I'm not a fan of their salads either

10 years ago I wasn't eating big macs, so I couldn't tell you if they taste different. I imagine so, since they're no longer packaged in styrofoam.

I either get the meal, or what comes with the meal but no drink.

or sometimes just one sandwich.

See, this goes back to my original point. At Burger King I just get the burger and the meal stuff, and that's enough. But at McDonalds... I just don't feel satisfied after their meals unless I grab something else.

I think they've started skimping on lettice or something.

Supersizing is bad, Whidden. Don't you remember what happened to that fellow who ate McDonalds 3 times a day? Do you want to end up like him? Do you? 'Cause that'll be you if you supersize, even once. EVEN ONCE!

I watched part of that show, that guy was super weenie. Ate a supersize meal, and threw up. His wife was a whacked out Vegan (not that being a vegan is bad) who said she would almost not talk to him if he ate McDonalds.


That fellow was a feeb. Little kids can eat a supersize meal. Not our fault if all he ever ate was toful and water cress, then try's to down a bigmac and fries.


SUPERSIZE ME'!!!! I DENY THE POLITICAL CORRECTNESS OF THIS HEALTH NAZI NATION!!!! And health nazi's abroad.

I agree. McDonalds lets people supersize (or used to). They even suggest it sometimes. It's not their fault people are weak minded. You have the CHOICE... they're not forcing you, damn it.

I could eat McDonalds 3 times a day without getting sick. Easily. True, I'd put on a heck of a lot of weight, but I could do it.

Fuscia, the sausage and egg mcmuffins rule. What do you have against eggs then?

I used to eat McDonald's 3 times a day, and I did put on weight... But, I mean, I don't understand how that guy got SO FAT. I used to supersize my meals, and tack on an apple pie, or another burger, or something. I'd eat the mcmuffin meal with a BLT bagel in the morning and switch the coffee to a medium orange juice (usually the meal would be supersized so I could get 2 hashbrowns), and then have my supersized meal for lunch. Then, before I'd go home, I'd eat another supersized, or a regular meal. Usually it was the Crispy Chicken meal, but oftentimes I'd get sick of eating chicken everytime, so's I'd switch it up. Usually I'd do the Big Extra (Big n' Tasty in the US), or a 1/4 lb with cheese. Sometimes I'd double the meat on the burger. I only gained about 20 pounds, but it wasn't very noticable. I've since lost pretty much all of the weight that McD's was responsible for. Now, Wendy's, BK, Harvey's (don't know if you get that in the US... It's a lot like Wendy's, but it's topped how you like it, subway-style), and the local Jamaican food store make their own regular contributions to my ballooning belly. I pat it with pride and a few burps every now and then...

Are you tall Sierradaddy?

I used to eat Maccas once a day. It just used to be the easiest meal for me to get between work and uni. But back then it was pretty much all I ate for the entire day, so I could probably make one of those Jarod ads for Micky-D's - "the man who lost weight eating nothing but McDonalds!"

Eh, taller than me still. Only by a inch or two, granted, but that'd give you an extra few fries and maybe a cheese burger worth of extra storage space.

My metabolism used to run like an out-of-control locomotive, too. Now, it seems that old age is causing the train's wheel bearings to rust, and the metabolism is slowing down as a result. Now a cheeseburger will add seven times its weight to my own. That is just not supposed to happen. It's not scientific.

No, that doesn't sound scientifically sound at all!

Any new menu items in the McDonalds over in the States us foreign folk should know about?

We have some pretty sweet prawn rice-burgers out here... never had one, but the advertisement for them involves women in binkini's trying to suck shrimp with their mouths. That's some good television.

I worked at a McDonald's when I was in high school and gained like ten pounds. Since then I don't really eat McD's too much. If I do it's the sausage McMuffin w/egg on my way to work. McD's breakfast is a gift. Don't eat lunch or dinner there anymore. Carl's Jr. and Del Taco are the only places I cruise to. If you can find something better than the Western Bacon Cheeseburger I'll slap your lying mouth.

I never like bacon in my burgers. It just doesn't fit for me.

I would like to eat at a Carl's Jnr or Del Taco though, we don't have jack when it comes to fast food here. I heard Taiwan used to have Wendys, like 20 years ago.

Do these ad agencies even try to figure out what the 'hip' slang they so desperately want to use actually means?
