Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed they are putting less sauce on the big mac's the last couple of years, they definitely don't taste as good as they used to!

I wonder if the creature that they squeeze that sauce from is nearing extinction.

I don't venture into McD's post 10.30, so can't really comment on the big mac. The breakfasts are the only things worth bothering with IMO.

Only thing I ever get from McDucks is the Deli of the day, especially Tuesdays or Saturdays, sweet chilli chicken.

I think it could be because the sauce is fattening, if they use less of it they can say the big mac has less calories in it :(

to be honest i can't see the point in all this healthy eating stuff mcD's are promoting, surely everyone knows takeaway food is bad for you, why try to kid ourselves, i certainly wouldn't go there for a salad!

I haven't had a McD in over a year I think.

I used to work there in my youth and after 4 years there I was actually managing a store, this was in the days before there was one on every corner.

I think the healthy eating stuff is just for the kids who wouldn't know what is bad for them, they just go on taste, if its nice they want to eat it.

Anything including 'healthy' food can be bad for you done to excess. My motto is everything in moderation. Having a big mac every now and then is not going to kill you. Eating McD everyday, not such a good idea.

Work.... Where else?
Probably so they can make more money, less ingredients = more profit.

And they aint tasted the same for sometime now, and you cant get root beer at them anymore. You should go visit one in another country, the McChicken range are a lot more spicy and stuff. And in Thailand they have plum sauce which is ace.

I rarley eat them these days, and dont know how I ate so many as a kid. I would recommend a chicken royale with cheese from BK. But other than that they can all burn in hell afaiac.

Wendy's on the other hand is the best burger place around! Had them in Japan, and the quadruple burgers are amazing!

I used to work at Maccy D's too, we used to make our own burgers up for our lunch :)

Now I wish we had a 'Friendly's' chain over hear like our slender U.S. cousins, this burger looks rather tasty, mmm-mmmm!

It's a grilled cheese burger melt.

only a measly 1500cals!

(as seen on The Colbert Show, for those who watch)

I think he died of some kind of food poisoning.


I want to know WTF Grimace was supposed to be - anyone know?
