And now for something totally idiotic - BK v McDonalds posted 29 Dec 2004, 04:12 by Annabel, Peralogue

Mickie D's for me because the coffee goes down, in the words of Umberto Eco (see How to Travel with a Salmon) like "mountain springwater". Oh, and the apple pie. Yummy. And, because you can get that really weird Quebecois gravy stuff on your fries. view post

for no particular reason, I prefer BK view post

McD I suppose, although there is not an awful lot of difference to be honest. view post

I don't like the taste of the "flame broiling". McD. Though given the option (and I frequently am), I'll take A&W or Wendy's over both any day of the week. view post

Any of you from Quebec -- what are those funky french fries with gravy called?? view post

I think you're talking about "poutine". I don't really like it but it is somewhat popular here. view post

I hate them both, havn't had either in many years, and fast food is a rare thing for me...... we'll except for New York fries, but thats like once a month or somthing like that. view post

I would go with McDonald's, though I avoid fast food and haven't eaten there in something like a year, which I consider success! view post

poutine is generally served as fries with cheese curds ( read as the raw unaged unflavoured chesse product) and beef gravy preparde properly with good ingridients there are few things more heavenly on this earth done by the fast food kids.... eeewww view post

Given the choice between McD's and BK, I'd probably go with McD's. BK used to have a much better menu, but now... That being said, forget both of 'em. Give me Hardies, Arbys, or Jack in the Box or In & Out Burger (west coast only... stupid east coast) any day. Or Arctic Circle if you're allowed to go back in time... Sonic if you're not. I don't eat fast food that often, but when I do, I want it to be gooood. McD's and BK are the vanilla icecream (imitation at that) of the fast food business. view post

I avoid fast food like the clap ( So neither, I don't eat fast food anymore..... besides a pizza here and thier ) view post

nice to hear you are keeping clap free i, for one, think that is a good idea! :P :P :P view post

I'm not a big fast food fan either...but I like McD's breakfast every once in awhile...say, once every 12 months or so. Wendy's is okay though. I probably eat more Subway than anything else. That Jarrod is a lying bastard. view post

Bein clap free has its advantages, the maiun one being not having the clap view post

Maybe not. Maybe he really loves fast food. On the discussion of Poutine....Here are instructions for those members who are unfamiliar with this stroke-in-a-box ambrosia: 1) Consume beleaguering amounts of alchohol. Canadian beer is a nice choice. I recommend Moosehead. 2) Have a close, sober friend take you through the drive-thru at Burger King (or [i:c0bn5u2s]King du Burger[/i:c0bn5u2s], for my Quebecois friends). 3) Order a Poutine. You can pronounce it poo-TEEN, pu-TSIN, or -- my favourite -- POE-tyne. 4) Wait about 5 to 10 minutes for your Poutine to congeal slightly. If you do it right, you can insert your complimentary plastic fork into the container and pull out the entire mass of product -- allowing you to eat it like a popsicle. 5) Consume your Poutine. Proudly wear any drippings like war-wounds. 6) Wallow in your crapulance as you feel your blood vessels constrict and chunks of cheese curd set a course from your stomach cavity to your heart. 7) Repeat Steps 1 through 7. view post

Between the two, I'm a McD's whore. I blame it on their fries. I think they sprinkle a mixture of salt and crack to keep you addicted. Kinda like Tim's coffee. Neither are at all palatable, but there must be some added narcotic.... But usually, if I must eat fast food, then I choose Subway. @ Echoex -no wonder I always feel like my heart's going to stop after eating poutine - I forgot the beleaguering amounts of alcohol to thin my blood first. Brillant! view post

I tend to prefer Burger King to McDonalds. Okay, so BK has ripoff prices and the fries aren't as good now that they're cutting down on the salt, but I can't resist having a bacon double cheeseburger when I get the chance. view post

Given a choice I would pick McD's - they at least have *some* decent foods, salads and such. Harvey's has the best Burgers & Wendy's is pretty decent too. A&W has kickass onion rings & root beer. The only thing worse than BK is "Fast Eddies", the Canadian version of White Castle. Home of the "12 for a buck glutburger!" I thought the movie "Supersize Me" was a bit strange - McD's probably has some of the more healthy choices out of all the fast food joints if you get the right stuff. Now I'm hungry!!!! :o view post

I know some Americans visit the boards here so I just wanted to ask something. I was recently in L.A. and went to McDs a handful of times (couldn't afford anything else...although CPK is amazing...but I digress) and didn't see anything like salads, yogurt parfaits, or toasted sandwiches...do they exist in the states? Or was I just in a really shitty McDonalds? Just wondering because they are pushing that shit pretty hard up here. *Btw, my girlfriend is American but lives in Vermont...so I don't think there is a McDonald's anywhere near her...just sheep and cows :P* view post


posted 16 Jun 2005, 20:06 by Scilvenas, Auditor

The only places I've ever seen that don't offer the salads and stuff are the express ones, like in gas stations. Not that you ever see anyone order a salad... view post


posted 16 Jun 2005, 20:06 by Deerow, Auditor

Cool cool...so it was a sketchy one. Nice. I think ordering a salad from a fast food place is sort of...counter-productive anyway. view post


posted 16 Jun 2005, 21:06 by Murrin, Peralogue

I think they've really been forced into it by all those people ranting about obesity, heh. I'm sure the salads and 'healthy option' foods probably don't sell that well in any case, but if they stopped offering them at all the complainers would be up in arms again. At Burger King I think they're actually offering carrot sticks as part of the kids meal. view post

Yeah...it is pretty crazy...but on the other hand there is an obesity problem. *shrugs* view post

I rarely eat at any of those, might be because my town is the only one in the world that has neither. view post

London has the dubious distinction of being the first place to have Chicken McNuggets. Makes sense. Try it out in a smaller, and more conservative, market first. If it works then ship it South. Guess that makes us McGuinea Pigs! view post
