Fast Food Poll


Turakii #1 Lavasurfer

354 views

Have you ever observed, as you happily devour your latest fast food meal, that Macdonalds hamburgers are usually only the size of a Wendy's or Burger King hamburger if you stack at least two on top of each other?

 

Now, common suspicion is that it's company policy for every hamburger to be thoroughly pounded flat before served to the customers. While that certainly does prevent the condiments from falling out, and does leave more room in the bag for french fries, it also makes it near impossible to pry apart your meal and add your own condiments without ripping the poor hamburger into shreds.

 

The question before us today is this: do Macdonalds workers all across the world follow this unwritten code, or is it narrowed to certain areas? Have you ever been fortunate enough to discover a Macdonalds hamburger that was not squashed flat?

 

And, slightly less importantly, do the workers specially design the fries to only taste good the first half-hour after you've bought them?

I actually prefer Chipotle. Not only are the burritos extremely good, but they have so many opportunities to get free ones that you can't help but like it.

They're all like that.

Not true.

 

In Trinidad and Tobago, for example, the burgers are given as is, and, from personal experience, cold and with no condiments. Which was odd. But that was only one Burger.

 

In Singapore their not squished flat, rather given to you so they're bursting all over the place.

 

The Netherlands shares a very similar method of serving to Singapore, key difference being that if you want any Ketchup you have to pay extra for it.

 

I could go on if ye'd like... But I think I'll end it here.

Five Guys FTW!

 

I hear their burgers are good. I wouldn't know, since I don't eat burgers (no, I'm not a vegetarian), but I do know that their hot dogs and fries are a higher degree of ownage. As in, the ownage of Carapar and LarryBoy combined. I kid you not.

I have had not one, but TWO non-squished McDonalds hamburgers. By luck more than anything, condiering they are usually flat as a pancake.

 

Mabye the hamburgers always get stuck under some heavy box in the freezers.

 

Hmm... Considering I now work for McDonalds, I'll be finding these loverly things out for myself. =D

They are most certainly all like that. My theory is that they throw the whole burger into a pot of boiling water, then, once cooked, they hand them out to dry.

They are so unimaginably gross.

And I agree with you about the fries.

I've got this friend who works in McDonalds. He keeps on saying that he's making mad money, which is money with Mad Lincoln heads. I don't believe him.

...Wait, what did that have to do with flat burgers? Oh well, at least we've got elllips...ee.e..e.s.s.s.s............

Well, it's McDonalds. They've got a very strange clown as their mascot. You can't expect too much from them. :P

 

I don't know if I even want to talk about the clown... :fear:

They're the same here in Bulgaria - squashed.

 

Don't forget Rule #3 - French Fries must always be extra salty so the customer buys a drink. ;)

When you work @ Culver's like me, you don't even consider handing out squished burgers. Those manager got cameras everywhere! I'm sure of it! They're watching....
