I have a craving for.....

a BIG MAC!

Just talking about the *pink slime* over on the Mail Lobby (LOLOLOL) and I was mentioning that I'll bet there are very few of us who have never eaten it over the years.

McDonalds has announced that they discontinued using that product at all clear last August, and yet... it was undoubtedly in the Big Macs I used to love so much.

And now I'm really having a craving for a BIG MAC!

Gotta' swing by McDonalds one of these Up Days.

Well, and I expect that is going to call for some of their french fries with it.

Their fries aren't the same since they changed the frying oil

I used to LOVE LOVE LOVE McDonalds fries.

So, what do they fry them in now? What oil did it used to be? So we need cheap soy oil again to make good fries?

I understand it was beef tallow before lol - and then they got into trouble because of the vegetarians? I remember some scandal about it so now they're all vegetable oils.

Now burger king, on the other hand, now has some really good fries!

Ohhhhh how I wish we could go for the Value Meal together! I'm a Big Mac girl too. Pink Slime or not (how cute a name is that? lol) now and then I get the attack and gotta satisfy it! Oooooh the last one I had (about 2 mos ago) was PERFECT... I mean, it actually looked big and tall like they do in the commercials.

I'll bet it was cooking the fries in that beef tallow that was so, so, so fabulous! All sprinkled with salt. OMG!

I see on their website that they now use a *canola oil blend* these days. Which probably means blended with soy oil, and... mostly soy oil in this *blend*. But it sounds better to a lot of folks to say a canola oil blend rather than a soy oil blend. Heh

But I could just drive my Big Mac over to the Burger King, and order my fries there! I'm sure they wouldn't care.

Ah, wish they could bring back the beef tallow fries.

I'm sorry but just the thought of eating McDonald's makes me want to gag!! I have never liked their burgers, always tasted and smelled gamy to me. I did enjoy their old fries though but I haven't eaten them in so long I can't even remember what they taste like.

Just not a Fast Food kind of gal, any burger type fast food, never was!

I agree. I try them every now and then...But I am not inspired to eat an entire order since they changed. Good for me, bad for their bank account. lol

I was a Quarter Pounder gal back in the day. I had one a couple months ago after at least 5 years of not having one. I really prefer Carls Jr. Or better yet, our "best burgers in town" burger stand/diner place. Crap... thanks... it's a down day and now I'm stuck on burgers and fries and ONION RINGS!

I get Big Mac attacks too and I agree the fries are no longer the same. These days I get a yummy burger at Carl Jrs. I don't know if they use the pink slime or not. But I love the burgers with a side of fries. Just a treat now and then. I had some fries that were fried in duck fat. Now THOSE were outstanding.
ENJOY!!!

I love onion rings so much! I wish I could make them at home remotely as good as they are served to me at the diners. And then dipped in either ketchup or ranch dressing.

OH! And breaded and deep fried mushrooms. Heaven. With ranch dressing to dip them in. Have to be careful not to burn your mouth. So scrumptious.

I'm on a DD here. Making myself suffer.

I don't know what it is about McD's, but an hour after eating it, I'm running for a bathroom. So not craving that. LOL I haven't had a burger from there in a long time because of that effect.

And I agree with b_lou, we raise our own grassfed beef, and I am totally spoiled. I can't eat beef away from home anymore. If I go out, I get chicken.

Thanks for the tip. I've never heard of oven baked onion rings, but I'm certainly willing to give it a try. If they're remotely good, I'm ahead of where I am right now, and if they're delicious, I will be your devoted slave forever.

That explains why there burgers have seem to have gotten smaller!! I honestly thought my hubby was nuts when he said the burgers dont fill him up anymore. Til one day I tore apart a big mac and was like "where's the beef"!

I'm guilty of still liking a quarter pounder with cheese and fries every once in a while. I'm much more likely to go to Carl's Jr. and get a guacamole turkey burger and fried zucchini, or In-N-Out for a double-double and fresh fries! YUM!

Should not have stepped into this thread. LOL

I rarely eat fast food but we have grassfed beef and goat that makes yummy burgers. I'll take mine medium rare with bacon, cheese, grilled onion, pickle and plenty of barbeque sauce. Hmmm, maybe I'll have one for lunch tomorrow.

That's sticking it to Morgan Spurlock.

Sounds good!
But I haven't had them in so long that I don't know if they'd be good.

There's a KFC a block from my house. We pick up from there probably 2-3 times a month. I still love it.

Hey! If Jared could lose his weight on sandwiches from Subway, you should be able to use McNuggets.

I love KFC every time I have it. Which isn't very often, but OMG! I love how they flavor chicken! And how they can make that *extra crispy* coating!

But I've never had any problem with it?

Now I'm in the mood for both the Big Mac and KFC extra crispy.
