|I know, the toy is the best part...|
Wow...did I read that right? McDonald's force feeding apples to children? What's this world coming to...??? Ha. The next thing you know...they will deny your child the toy in the bag if you don't take those dang apples!!! And doesn't the promo picture here with the article, make you want to jump out of your seat and go get some...errr...apples??? Have potatoes gone up in price? I don't think so. Hmmm...Seriously, I'm all for healthier snacks and nutrition for children. Kids eat a lot of carbs and sweets. That's for sure. I guess that health officials had an influence here. Giving an option wasn't good enough, as only 11% took the healthier side to the kids meal. It would be interesting to know how many actually eat the apples now that they are included automatically...I guess that I just believe in freedom of choice. Combo A vs Combo B...
All I can say is people don't go to McDonald's to eat APPLES!!! And if they do, I bet that the caramel dip is more of the reason.. : )
As for me, if I want fries...I will head to FIVE GUYS !!! They have peanuts with there fries...and they are an option.
