Is McDonalds Becoming More and More Like This Company?



August 31, 2010 – Comments (3) | RELATED TICKERS: MCD , WEN , SBUX

Here is my review that I did on another forum that talks about my McDonalds meal I just had for lunch just a few minutes ago.  I usually never eat fast food and rarely eat McDonalds.  To put into perspective of how often I eat out, the past 30-40 days straight, I cooked every single meal as I'm a bodybuilder and was on a cut (5-6 meals a day, all cooked by me).  Today was different in that I am back to bulking and didn't have time to cook my food for work.  Let's hope that doesn't happen again.  Anyways, on to the review!


 So I did the unthinkable, hit the last resort, and endured the pain. I ordered:

-Large Wild Berry Smoothie
-1 McChicken Sandwich
-1 New Angus Deluxe Wrap

Smoothie is excellent as usual. Just can't consume all the sugar and carbs everyday because I'm a bodybuilder. The McChicken was like it usually is - just above bird poo. The new Angus Wrap is somewhat decent. They put some onion ring in there for some reason. Who determined the additions? I want to know if it is the same person that thought mayo was good to add to sandwiches.

Wrap tastes like a hamburger but just in a different shape. For $1.99 I think it is overpriced.

Strangely my order total was $6.66. Perhaps that is a sign that I will be dropping bombs in the bathroom later this evening.

Overall Grade of Meal: C- (I didn't die.... yet)


So who is the company McDonalds is becoming like?  You guessed it!  Wendy's.  And why is that?  McDonalds has been doing nothing but changing their menu recently.  Smoothie is good.  Angus wrap is not so good.  Luckily they have kept their fries but McDonalds is starting to look like Starbucks, a Smoothie stand, and McDonalds all wrapped into one - no pun lol.  Who is making these decisions?  More importantly, who are these food testers?  What is wrong with maintaining their popular meals?  What was wrong with the salad shaker?  I actually loved that.  You stick the salad in a cup, pour dressing on the top, close, and shake.  Voila!  You got yourself a pretty compact and healthy meal/snack. 

Anyways, McDonalds has a lot more freedom to experiment.  Let's just hope they don't experiement their menu away like Wendy's did years ago.  Perhaps in a few years a McDonald's meal will include grilled chicken drumsticks (instead of nuggets), a baked pototo (instead of fries), and a Pina Colada.

Someone mentioned this to me and I just googled it after reading your post:

Happy Meal after 137 days remains unchanged.   Food for thought.

Now that is a post that stands its weight in time - LOL!  Let's see what McDonald's has to say about this.  I've always known they don't label all their ingredients on their food and we know why.  Do that with any hamburger and fries combo from the grocery store and it wouldn't last a week.  Do that with any real steak and baked potato and it wouldn't last a couple of days.

What does this mean guys?  Not even BACTERIA want McDonald's LOL!

I prefer Burger King!

And I like KFC's grilled chicken! Some will let you add any side from their buffet to replace the fries or cole slaw! Can't beat that!

Last but not least. Why go to burger joints when you can split a $5 sub at Subway with a friend and pay only $2.50 each!! I split one before golfing the other day then split another after golfing!
