Here's a scratcher I found in a box in my garage.  It's McDonald's Easy Pickin's Quiz, where you match a question against multiple choice answers.  If you guess correctly, then you scratch off one of six boxes to reveal a prize.  Here you can see I won a regular order of fries.   It is a crime that these fries have gone uneaten for 30 years (the contest was in 1980).  I also neglected to take advantage of the Wherehouse music coupon good for $2 off either a Smokey & The Bandit 2 or Xanadu soundtrack.

It's hard to read the fine print here, but the game was somewhat lame now that I read it: "Breakfast prizes will be awarded only during breakfast hours with the concurrent purchase of a breakfast entree" and "all other McDonald's food prizes will be awarded during dinner hours with the concurrent purchase of a large sandwich."  No wonder I didn't redeem - I couldn't drive in 1980 and my mom probably wasn't going to take me to McDonald's just for some free fries at dinner.  By the way, one of the large sandwiches that qualifies is the "Chopped Beefsteak Sandwich."  What happened to that?!

Still, I miss contests like this.  I am always happy when the Monopoly game rolls around.  There is something satisfying about the potential for instant wins, akin to the thrill of lottery tickets.  McDonald's - BRING BACK GAMES LIKE THESE.

Cheeburger Cheeburger is a small chain with a handful of restaurants in about 20 states.  They're best known for their "invent your own taste" menu with over 30 free toppings that you can mix and match.  Check it out.

mcdonalds oatmeal

McDonald's introduced new Fruit & Maple oatmeal to its breakfast lineup.  I rarely eat breakfast and even more rarely eat oatmeal, so somebody will have to let me know how it is.

In response to a class action lawsuit filed by a single individual in California claiming Taco Bell's meat is only 35% real beef, Taco Bell responded with a volley of media announcements as well as this You Tube response from the company's president:

In a statement on the company's website, Taco Bell said "The lawsuit is bogus and filled with completely inaccurate facts."  The statement went on to say "The lawyers got their facts wrong. We take this attack on our quality very seriously and plan to take legal action against them for making false statements about our products."

Fast Food Source will follow this story as it develops.  Meanwhile, Taco Bell, I love you but how about taking the opportunity in the spotlight to announce some unique menu items with unique quality ingredients, rather than parading out a Beef Crunch Burrito that gets its crunch from FRITO'S?!

mcdonalds chicken club

Why is it that McDonald's cannot master a decent chicken sandwich?  I tried the Chicken Club premium sandwich the other day.  Nice touch that you can opt for grilled rather than fried, but the kudos stop there.  Look at what I got:

Does this look appetizing to you?  The sandwich was as boring, dry, and tasteless as it looks in the pic.  Built from the bottom up, the ingredients are assembled as heel, chicken breast, swiss slice, tomato, lettuce leaf, mayo, and crown.  Interestingly, these are the same items in the superior Carl's Jr. and Hardee's Chicken Club.  But while Carl makes his sandwich juicy and flavorful, McDonald's take is bland and uninspiring.

McDonald's - it is time for you to step up and put together a chicken sandwich worthy of your status at the top of the (fast) food chain.
