Clearly McDonald's is having an identity crisis.
Let's take this moment to remember their last big idea...to become the next Starbucks.
Do they stick to what people love about them, that unique taste all of its own that inheres in the simple options like McNuggets, cheeseburgers and fries -- at the risk of alienating a new generation that has tasted better.
That ship sailed long ago....the frys dont taste anything like they used to. The apple pies are no longer fried. Big Macs are but a crappy knock off of what they used to be. The shakes used be be made out of soft serve but now are made of
Ingredients: Corn Syrup, Water, Vanilla Extract, Caramel Color, Citric Acid, Pectin, Potassium Sorbate (Preservative), Yellow 5, Yellow 6.
The ice cream cone used to be made out of ice cream but is not for all intents and purposes ice milk.
That stuff's terrible for you anyway.
so all these years of efforts to get branded as having healthy options, all this expense they go to to have a bunch of salads on the menu that almost no one buys, has done nothing for you I see.
how much so is not known, but problems with the operations combined with becoming the dictionary definition of fast food exploitive labor practices is a tough deal to need to navigate.
I am not sure what has gone wrong here, which is one of the reasons for this thread. However, at the moment I think the best thing they could do is reboot back to about 1995. Go back to the old recipes, put the beef fat flavored fry oil back in the frier, slash the size of the menu, make food delish , place it in a specially designed warmer with a time stamp and if it does not sell in time throw it out....pull out the old training manuals a teach staff to provide service to the customers.What would the response be if I could once again walk into a store and in 2 minutes walk out with a juicy delicious Big Mac and the best tasting hot and perfectly salted fries by far of any in America?
