What is in the burger sauce ? I NEED to know !

Are they / what are the Christmas going to be like ?

Does anything other than fries ever get fried in the same fryer as fries?

Why does my strawberry milkshake always taste of banana?

How often does the ice machine get cleaned?

How do you keep drive through orders in the right order?

Do chicken nuggets have specific shapes and do a certain number of shapes have to be in each box?

Do you silently applaud when someone knows to pull out the folds on the little self dispense ketchup cups?

Did you McStrike?

What's the worst part of working at McDonald's?

gaggiagirl Sun 17-Nov-19 21:54:01

How does the drive thru work when it's busy?
May I ask for extra gherkins in my burger and would there be a charge?.

ChrisPrattsFace Sun 17-Nov-19 21:55:37

Why is it so damn delicious ...

Ohffs66 Sun 17-Nov-19 21:55:53

Why don't we have the same veggie choices as they do in e.g the Netherlands, Germany etc

Queenfreak Sun 17-Nov-19 21:55:56

Woah! The folds arent just because its round?!

How fresh is the salad?

FrankiesKnuckle Sun 17-Nov-19 21:57:31

How many stars do you have?

MyNewBearTotoro Sun 17-Nov-19 21:57:40

@gaggiagirl - I use the self service machine and you can usually add extra pickles for free. I assume you can do the same if you order through a person?

CrazyCatLady159 Sun 17-Nov-19 21:59:41

@gaggiagirl I always ask for extra gherkins - they give them to me for free my order just takes longer as they have to make it fresh :-)

Why don't the UK offer gluten free options when other European countries do??

pastabest Sun 17-Nov-19 22:10:02

@Berrylove you can't just start an AMA on such an important topic and then disappear. For the love of all that is deep fried in breadcrumbs....

Please come back OP! This will be a great thread.

Bringonspring Sun 17-Nov-19 22:13:44

Oh my pastabeast that is a lot of questions, however you have now got me pondering the shape of chick nuggets......

SpunBodgeSquarepants Sun 17-Nov-19 22:15:53

I'm absolutely obsessed with McDonald's gherkins - there simply are no other gherkins in existence that can compare. How do I get my hands on as many as humanly possible?? Thanks in advance 😁

DontCallMeShitley Sun 17-Nov-19 22:17:01

Why do staff not have the ability to differentiate between bloody ketchup and brown sauce in a breakfast? Are they not trained to understand the words 'brown sauce'?

I loathe the ketchup and have been given it twice at the weekend when brown sauce was requested. Too late to do anything about it by the time I found out. Such a waste of junk food, as it had to go in the bin, can't tolerate whatever the spice stuff is that is in it.

And as for those disgusting replacements for the veggie burger, why? The old ones would never replace food but at least they didn't taste like something from the bottom of the bin.

After this weekend it doesn't really matter because I don't think I will bother any more, especially after the episode of the fifty times heated chicken nuggets that were meant to be cheese, dried out and grubby.

gaggiagirl Sun 17-Nov-19 22:17:42

Chicken nugget shapes are known as bell, bone, boot and ball I think .

gaggiagirl Sun 17-Nov-19 22:18:27

Thanks for the gherkin info everyone I will definitely order extra from now on.

Bringonspring Sun 17-Nov-19 22:18:52

Seriously there are 4 shapes for chicken are blowing my mind

pastabest Sun 17-Nov-19 22:19:37

Believe it or not BringonSpring I probably only eat at McDonalds about 3-4 times a year now but I was an aficionado in my youth.

I am led to believe that chicken nuggets have (4?) distinct shapes. My research somewhat bears this theory out...

GiveMeAllTheGin8 Sun 17-Nov-19 22:20:29

I love McDonald’s, Big Mac meal I could eat every day
No questions just a fact about myself grin

SamBeckett Sun 17-Nov-19 22:21:36

@Berrylove Come back I have more questions !

What do you think of the paper straws ?

Are the burgers cooked to order ?

The veggie burgers , are they cooked away from meaty products ?
