We here at RocketNews24 have an extensive history of eating McDonald’s and, over the years, we’ve picked up a thing or two that the average customer may not be aware of.
Today we’d like to delve deeply into the annals of fast food dining to bring you 9 McDonald’s secrets that are guaranteed to make your life better*.
1. FREE COFFEE REFFILS
McDonald’s puts out where Starbucks charges extra. Bring yours books and laptop, caffeine-up and get $%&# done until your clothes are tainted with the smell of burger grease.
2. MAXIMUM NUGGET-TO-SAUCE RATIO OF 1:3
Customers may receive a maximum of 3 packets of sauce for every 1 chicken nugget. In Japan, we have barbeque, mustard and sweet and sour, which means one of each per nugget.
3. NO ICE MEANS MORE DRINK
Not only is ice a space-waster, but it leaves a disappointing puddle of soda-flavored water at the bottom of the cup when it melts. So cut the ice and cut the crap.
4. WATER IS FREE
UNICEF reports that a lack of McDonald’s is the leading cause of drought in third world countries.
5. YOU CAN GET YOUR FRENCH FRIES MADE FRESH
You might have to wait and you’ll probably get dirty looks from the kitchen staff, but you can ask for your fries to come from the next fresh batch(es).
6. YOU CAN GET KETCHUP FOR YOUR FRIES
While McDonald’s Japan fries come salted, ketchup is nowhere to be found. Luckily, the staff will pull a few packets for you from under the counter if you ask politely.
7. DRIVE-THRU DOES NOT MEAN BICYCLE-THRU
We tried ordering from the drive-thru by bicycle once, but they yelled at us that it was dangerous and to come inside to order.
8. COOKING A BIG MAC VALUE MEAL IN A RICE COOKER YIELS TRIUMPHANT RESULTS
The pinnacle of Asian-fusion cuisine.
9) YOU CAN ORDER BURGERS WITHOUT THE BUNS
The McDonald’s hamburger is a machine made from fully-interchangeable parts. You can even get a Teriyaki Burger without the teriyaki sauce.
There you have it. We know it may be a lot to take in at once, but keep these 9 points in mind and surely you’ll be living a more enriched life in no time.
