McDonald's has apparently been handing out mozzarella sticks with no mozzarella in them. Several disappointed customers have turned to Twitter to share photos of the sad looking "hollow breading" sticks. These images have gone viral as the rest of the world sympathizes with these unfortunate people's lack of snack.
It has been a slow death for the popular Dollar Menu at McDonald's. But a new menu called the "McPick 2," which allows customers to choose between a McDouble, a McChicken, small fries and mozzarella sticks for $2, is taking its place.
The company hopes this will bring customers back who have left since the death of the Dollar Menu.
Whether the McPick menu catches on remains to be seen.
In an attempt to wean customers off the Dollar Menu in 2012, McDonald's rolled out an "Extra Value Menu" that offered items for a range of prices. After that failed to take hold, the company turned to the "Dollar Menu & More," which channeled a proven name but may have confused people with its range of prices.
McDonald's isn't alone in struggling to get customers to let go of the $1 price. Wendy's tried replacing its 99-cent menu with a "Right Price Right Size" menu, but acknowledged the switch wasn't doing the job. Last month, it began promoting a limited-time "4 for $4" deal that includes a Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger, chicken nuggets, fries and a drink.
Your McGangBang dreams are pretty much over, America.
This McDonald's employee definitely wasn't lovin' it.
The company told reporters Wednesday that an employee captured in a video luring a homeless man to the drive-through window in Detroit with a hamburger, and then throwing water in his face, has been fired.
"Hey, Willie. Come here. You want a sandwich?" the unnamed employee can be heard yelling before throwing the cup of water.
McDonald's franchisee Wise Finley said he was disturbed by the "inappropriate" incident and took action to fire the employee.
"This type of behavior is not tolerated in my organization. I expect my employees to treat everyone with dignity and respect, and this was unacceptable," Finley told the Detroit Free Press.
And on today's episode of "Everything Offends Me," a woman is really upset at the message on her kid's Chipotle cup.
Did the cup encourage the child to club baby seals? Set fire to a school? Join ISIS?
Nope. It just had two words that made the mom feel uncomfortable: reproductive sex.
OK, maybe out of context these words seem odd on a Chipotle cup. But not if you know anything about the artist that designed the cup.
The artist, Anthony Doerr, describes the cup like this:
Tattoo Earth's 4.5-billion-year timeline onto your arm, shoulder to fingertip, and your upper arm will get nothing but geologic mayhem: meteorites, magma, acid rain. Life won't begin until your bicep, and from there to your wrist it's all single-celled, oceangoing stuff. Reproductive sex won't show up until your wristwatch, and creatures that are finally big enough to see—tubes and fronds and weird Precambrian plant-animals—will crisscross the back of your hand.
Trilobites paddle across your palm; ancient forests grow from your knuckles; dinosaurs wind around the joints at the ends of your fingers. Mammals burrow into your cuticles.
Orangutans, arrowheads, Cleopatra, the names of the stars—they all have to fit on the sliver of fingernail at the end of your longest finger.
So the artwork is an arm showing how the world came to be through evolution. And reproductive sex would only show up around the wrist.
A new video has emerged online of a Burger King employee in Lake Worth, Florida pouring fry oil into a storm drain, and it has a lot of people flaming mad.
Joe May, who was passing by at the time, decided to capture the disposal on camera. He then posted the clip on Facebook along with a brief description of the scene, which now has almost 1 million views.
International franchise and they cant pay for a disposal company?! How often is this happening? Everyday? Twice a day? Someone needs to be held accountable for this. And yea, it was without a doubt, used fry oil. It was steaming hot. Share this so everyone can see what these people are doing!
May also notes on his page that he shot a second video of his interaction with the manager of the restaurant, but that one doesn’t appear to have been posted yet.
