Except today. Which by the time this posts, was really the other day, but you get the idea.
I skipped breakfast this morning so by the time lunch rolled around, I was starvin' marvin'.
So, I ordered a quarter pounder with cheese meal. It just sounded so good and like I said, I was really hungry.
I like to read while I eat, and I'll read anything. Back of shampoo bottles, year old TV guides, other people's mail.. anything.
Here's a picture of something I read on my quarter pounder box today,
My quarter pounder only has, and I quote, "a pinch of seasoning."
Really McDonald's? Is that what you call a pinch? Somehow I find it hard to believe that "a pinch of seasoning" equals 1190mg of sodium, 50% of my daily allowance.
And don't get me wrong, I'm not tricked into thinking McDonald's is healthy by any means, I know it's not, but I can't help but feel like they're misleading us. In my opinion, they're guilty of false advertising. Anybody else agree? It shows in the picture that correlates with they're " a pinch" caption, salt and pepper shakers.. so if there is only a pinch of these, how does my burger have 1190 mg of sodium?
I'm so confused!
I've always been a fan of fast food restaurants having to put nutrition labels on everything and I think this is a perfect example of why. How misleading would this be without a nutrition label on the bottom of the box stating what exactly McDonald's considers a pinch to be.
Honestly though, I would happier if McDonald's would just remove the false caption from their box. I don't really like being lied to and I have a feeling most of their consumers would agree.
