The Golden Arches Fear Losing Their “Gold” Baraf August 5, 2008 Cheese, Fast Food 4 Comments You know the economy is bad, when even a behemoth like McDonalds is feeling the pain! Apparently, the dollar menu is at risk! It seems Mickey D’s is reducing the amount of cheese on the double cheeseburger due to rising dairy prices. Really McDonalds? I mean what’s next, no bun due to the rising cost of wheat? And I bet pretty soon after that, the soggy piece of lettuce along with the tomato will depart due to a salmonella or e-coli scare. I swear, in a couple of months the only thing the dollar menu is gonna offer is change for a dollar. via Gothamist The following two tabs change content below.BioLatest Posts Baraf Latest posts by Baraf (see all) These Cupcakes Take The Cake! - October 20, 2008 This Would Have Been So Helpful In College! - October 5, 2008 Dear P.E.T.A: Stay Out Of My Ice Cream! - September 26, 2008 4 Responses Youppi August 5th, 2008 a double cheeseburger hasn’t graced a mcdonald’s dollar menu in NY City since the Dinkins administration. and i’m talking a $1 double cheeseburger, not the “dollar” double on the “dollar” menu that is actually $1.79. Reply Duckey August 7th, 2008 I dread to think want they put in a cheeseburger for that price when real meat costs so much more! Duckey x Reply Farrel August 7th, 2008 Actually, the double cheeseburger doesn’t have lettuce or tomato on it. Just dehydrated onions, mustard, ketchup, and pickle. Which is fine by me; when I worked at a McD’s back in high school, I never cared much for their woody tomatoes. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
