What's the refund on a McDonald's unhappy meal worth?

    Ah, that explains your posts then. If you start from that assumption no rational debate about McDonalds is likely to be possible.

    So that photo is from Tennessee, USA not the UK. I presume you have never eaten a McDonalds chicken nugget or at least not recently. I can assure you that the meat inside the batter is of the colour and texture normally found in chicken breast meat. It in no way resembles the cheap nuggets available from supermarkets which are made of chicken meat mixed with other forms of meat. I would argue that once the batter is removed McDonalds chicken nuggets are probably quite a healthy food. But dont let me come between you and your prejudice. Enjoy yourself.;)

    McDonald's nuggets are made from ground up and shaped chicken. It is nothing like whole chicken breast. In the same way that a burger is different from a steak. I've only rarely eaten at Macdonald's. The food is tremendously sweet and salty.

    I didn't start there; I got there by personal experience.

    True, but I didn't say it was a good joke.

    The punchline I knew was "over the Severn Bridge".

    We probably go into a McDonalds two or three times a year - when we venture up to Yorkshire there is one that is a convenient place to break the journey.

    You know what you are going to get - if you get really fresh fries, they are very nice and the coffee is decent too.

    Nobody is forcing anyone to eat there - nobody ever has.

    I guess my main contention with the company -and it's not their fault -is that their name has become synonymous with food. " Can we have a McDonald's ? " " We had McDonald's last night"
    It's like most things -an infrequent visit can't harm. There are families who eat fast food at least once a day.

    We used to go once a week at one time when my daughter collected the toys.

    They still have them do they not ?

    Underneath my Daughter's bed is a white plastic box - there are loads of them in there. She won't let us throw them out.

    I like McDonald's, but as many here have said, in moderation. My beef with them are their new straws. You could make the covers of their old plastic ones fly across the room. Tear off about 1cm of the covering. Loosen it and blow sharply into the straw. The cover flies off and follows an elegant trajectory with loops and such if you are lucky. Excellent for embarrassing your wife, but the kids love it!

    I think the toys my Daughter has are of the less valuable variety.

    I don’t personally like much on the McDonalds menu because I’m not keen on ‘burgers/chicken in a bun’ as a meal anyway. I’ve had their coffee, banana milkshake, apple pie and bacon/egg breakfast muffin at various times in the past, usually on the way back from an airport on return from a holiday. I wouldn’t make a special trip to buy any of these items but they were each ok when I had them.
