Jamie Oliver v McDonalds

mcdChef Jamie Oliver Proves McDonald’s Burgers “Unfit for Human Consumption”.

Hamburger chef Jamie Oliver has won his long-fought battle against one of the largest fast food chains in the world – McDonalds. After Oliver showed how McDonald’s hamburgers are made, the franchise finally announced that it will change its recipe, and yet there was barely a peep about this in the mainstream, corporate media.

Takeaway. Is this the end?

Nothing to complain about fast food takeaways. Found the solution. Simply stopped frequenting them. Haven’t been through a drive thru in three weeks. so there may be no more to be said on this subject.

Sugar in Drive thru Coffee

Whats the deal with sugar in Coffee at the drive thru.

I already ask fer more sugar than I put in meself because their spoons must be smaller.

Why can’t they stir it?

What is the point of putting sugar in a coffee if  its only to clog the drinking hole when you get to the end.

That is, of course if they’ve remembered to add sugar in the first place.

When I first saw McDonanlds drive thrus showing the number of sugars requested I thought this problem would end but no.

I have even asked if the sugar were added, been told it was and then find nothing sweet about the coffee I were drinking.

In the old days we received as many little sugar pillows we requested and they came with a little plastic spoon to stir with.

Gradually it became part of the “service” to have the sugar pillows opened and added, while we watched then the lid were put on. Alas no stirring. Drive out the drive thru, pull over, open coffee, stir, close coffee, resume journey.

Then as far as drive thrus go the sugar pillow disappeared altogether.

Replaced by coffee flowing over a base of unstirred sugar.

I have encountered this way of drive thru coffee life more often at McDonalds than Hungry Jacks and I have me own plastic spoon that lives on the dashboard to deal with the situation.

Realize now that blogs are a place to put yer whinges. Unfamiliar with whinging and prefer to effect changes rather than complain about the current state of affairs. All the same I reckon I’ll give it a go.
Being on the road so much I unfortunately (or happily) often rely on fast food outlets fer feeding and one thing that ruffles me whiskers is the photo of an attractive bountiful healthy looking burger at the drive thru compared to the product that comes through the window at the other end. Has anyone ever heard of  false advertising and does this constitute the same?

Another example I recently experienced…

The KFC Double Down

Compare the size of the product to the cardboard packet it comes in
