I’ve always been quite neutral about McDonalds. You have to be when you have kids, really. And sometimes you just need a quarter pounder with cheese. I love to suck the juice out of the meat. It’s my guilty secret. And I love that Egg McMuffin with the flat sausage yoke.

This is going to be short. I tried out the McDonalds Eurosaver Menu today. This is it …

I went for the double cheeseburger, the twisty fries and the fruit bag. A fiver.

Actually, I’d forgotten that I don’t like twisty fries. At least with the bag of straight ones you can pretend that they are chips. With the twisty ones, there’s no escaping the fact that they’re just extruded shapes of potato starch, covered with some crunchy crap and deep fried. They were very greasy. Not nice.

The burger was meh. Too much ketchup overpowered the taste of the meat. I’d never really noticed it before but the bun is pretty insubstantial. And sweet.

The fruit bag comprised about eight slices of watery apple and about five past-their-best grapes. Not great.

As I said, I don’t mind McDonalds. I didn’t enjoy it this time though. Enough said.
