    The thing that shocked me was the bit at the end with the final analysis.

    I wasn't surprised about the amount of fat. That I was expecting.

    It was the amount of sugar that got me!

    I was staggered.

    Now, I do not know how much hidden sugar I have eaten over my lifetime (Though I am not a big drinker of sodas or eater of ready meals)

    But in terms of sugar that I have actually gone out and bought in packets. the hidden sugar in the food consumed during his 30 days of McHell must be more than I have actually bought in my lifetime (Except for sugar used for jam making)

    I don't think it was the fat content that ****** up his biochemistry. It was the sugar.

    Well, they could spend the time makiing thier own burgers for a start! :D

    Fast food has its place, but queuing for an hour kinda negates the whole concept.

    Can only assume it's the same kinda mentality that prompts people to camp overnight outside electronics stores for the latest shiny object or AAA game.

    Exactly, when you've been locked down and are only allowed out infrequently who minds queuing for food, I can also take or leave McDonalds (they definitely have a place in the market) but wouldn't queue for that long as the appeal for me is that I can pick one up and be eating it in minutes (last time I actually had a Maccy's was in St Helier when we were on a all dayer and instead of trying to get food from a kebab house or something just went into MacDonalds half cut and ordered on the touch screen, hardly interrupted the drinking as well!)

    Loving the 'can make better at home brigade' as well, I take it you never go out for anything to eat then as you can always make better at home if you have the ingredients and time.

    I often get told that I'm far too cynical for my age, but the amount of people I've met that are hypocrites and/or 'do as I say and not as I do' is insane. Distancing from these people is great.

    Its neither cheap nor quick if you are waiting in a queue for an hour. :p Emergency food is all well and good but waiting over hour for a **** poor burger, nah. Judgemental ftw.

    Haha, pathetic sheeple.

    I can make much better food at home.

    I'm never putting that crap in my body.

    Are you satisfied?

    If people want to queue 1hr for horribly processed rubbish food then let them.

    I don't get it to be honest. I'm not a really a fan of McDonalds (Chicken Selects are pretty good though, although normally I can see the appeal. However I don't see the appeal of waiting an hour for it though, (location depending) i imagine the majority of those people could get a equivalent level burger delivered to their house for in less time.

    What's wrong with referring to people as sheep, why sheeple? Is it now discrimination against sheep?

    No way on Earth I’m waiting an hour for Marcy D’s. It was always the last resort when far from home and everywhere else is shut. The exception being a treat for the kids on the way home from swimming back in the day.

    Is this a forum full of Mums? I've made decent burgers at home, expensive mince ground up with seasoning and a brioché bun etc, McDonalds just hits a different spot.

    I mean do people have anything better to do so sitting in a car for a few hours isn't really a big deal and probably a change in scenery. I just don't agree with everyone rushing there as soon as they open, and they should probably waited until all branches could open to take the strain off the poor staff.

    I can make better at home but that's not the point.
