Our McD's has the calories listed ON the fries and burgers wrappers and all over the signs. My son was like mom I think this is strange, but personally I kinda like it.
WHat do you think? Do you think it will help people make healthier choices?
by Itzgrl101September 30, 2012 at 9:15 PMMcdonalds is evil. Period. Nothing they do could make me say anything nice about them :)
Australia has required that for awhile, thank goodness. We occasionally get something from a fast food place, and it's nice to see the information easily.
That said, I don't think it encourages people to make healthier choices. Australia is right behind America in their obesity rates (if they haven't surpassed America, yet). Sad.

I did, but I heard about it in a news article, so I expected it. I don't know that it'll necessarily make a difference. It doesn't stop me from getting what I want - and that applies to any restaurant (most of whom did this years ago).
by peaches_04September 30, 2012 at 9:37 PMIm kind of mad at them bc they dont give you an option between fries or apples you get a smaller portion of each now
by .sp4rkl3z.September 30, 2012 at 9:53 PMI hear when you cut all the junk out your tastebuds heal. Interesting! I haven't had pop in 4 weeks and I had one tonight and it burned my throat. Too bad it was so delicious lol!
I stopped drinking sodas in May and I tried a sip of Pepsi and sprite both of which were my drinks of choice and NOPE they tasted like crap!! I guess its just something that we crave and once we stop eatting/drinking it our tastes change
I haven't been there in a long time except went thru for a water the other day and saw the menu is totally different. Haven't seem the wrappers yet because we stopped eating meat. I bought some fries and they tasted like throw up. Crazy because I used to love their fries
Well I guess its just new here because I asked the lady at the counter and shes said it was the first shipment of the fries bags that have the label
Well it isnt realy a new change but it doesn't change my order there.
We actually went there the other day in between two appointments at two different hospitals. I HATE McDonalds!! Gag. But it was that or have a kid screaming for over an hour from being hungry. I did notice that on the menu and was surprised! I didn't know it was new because we never go there. I don't think people will care. I no longer like fast food at all, which is still crazy to me lol

Interesting link, but I'm mobile and can't make clicky
We eat there maybe twice a month as a 'treat' for my oldest and I noticed that the ones we have started doing that some months ago. I heard there is suppost to be a law going into affect that all fast food and sit down resturants have to list the calories

I think that if you're going to McDonald's, you aren't there for healthier choices lol! But it is a good thing I suppose.
