mcdonald’s gets a lot of bad press for its unhealthy, bad quality, but oh-so-delicious processed fast food. its been attacked as the reason for the 33% rate of obesity in the united states. there’s even movie, which i’ve never seen and never will see, called supersize me that is dedicated to promoting the artery clogging properties of america’s favorite fast food. the guy in the movie apparently died from eating nothing but mcdonald’s for a month. (seriously??!) basically, when we think of mcdonald’s, we think of some fat guy with man boobs, muffin top, and buttocks drooping from the sides of his stool.

despite all this, i am a fan of mcdonald’s.  i think these days, mcdonald’s is really trying to promote a more healthy image by improving the quality of their food. they’ve made changes such as using REAL ALL WHITE MEAT CHICKEN in the chicken nuggets (haha but this makes me wonder what they used before). they’ve also added items to their menu such as the fruit parfait, snack wraps, apple dippers, salads, and more for their weight conscious consumers. i’m also a fan of mcdonald’s DOLLAR MENU<3 iono about you, but when i get a whole meal for 3 dollars (double cheeseburger and fries with sweet tea), i’m a happy camper :]..

but the one thing i LOVE most about mcdonald’s is their coffee. the quality of mcdonald’s coffee is amazing and, in my opinion, even superior to starbuck’s coffee. mcdonald’s coffee has a nice roasted flavor that is strong but not overpowering. i also like mcdonald’s coffee better than starbuck’s because it doesn’t have that strong sour aftertaste that starbuck’s coffee always seems to have. plus, mcdonald’s is coffee is cheaper and reasonably priced when compared to starbuck’s outrageous prices. mcdonalds therefore wins in both quality and quantity in terms of its coffee

some of my other favorite mcdonald menu items are the:

-sweet tea

-chicken nuggets

-chipotle bbq snack wrap with crispy chicken



-oreo mcflurry

gahh making me so hungryyyy~~
