    McDonald’s and other fast-food chains slash dollar menus, push pricey ‘family’ meals

    Restaurant chains including McDonald’s and KFC are paring back $5-and-under “value” items in favor of more expensive $10-to-$30 combination meals, a strategy employed to lift sales and profits and offset rising food costs as the U.S. economy reopens. “Value” meals — sandwich, soda and fry combinations priced at $5 or less — have long been a staple of fast-food offerings. Chains used the deals to lure bargain-conscious customers, bringing traffic to stores. But deals priced at $5 and under have become less generous in the last 18 months. During the pandemic, fast-food gained market share from other restaurants forced to

    Miscommunication at McDonald’s leaves deaf customer without food

    WINK NEWS A deaf customer ordered a meal at McDonald’s with a normal expectation: she’d get the food she’d paid for. Instead, she was left without food or a refund and hurt feelings. Brenda Lander believes her story is about so much more than a single visit to McDonald’s. Masks have made it more difficult for deaf people to understand hearing people. Lander also believes we might also be losing empathy. WINK News reporter Sydney Persing sat down with Lander and an interpreter. “Yes, deaf people are different, but that’s okay,” Lander said. Lander was born deaf. For

    McDonald’s Quorn Vegetarian Nuggets Could Be A Thing Soon

    Last January, McDonald’s launched vegan dippers, and they were perfectly tasty if you follow a plant-based diet. But for some people, they were a little too vegetables-coated-and-battered as opposed to actual meat-free nuggets. So, imagine our excitement when we saw this tweet that put an idea into our minds that we never knew we wanted until now, even though, when you think about it, it seems so damn obvious. Just recently, @oneofthosefaces tweeted McDonald’s saying, “Launch Quorn Nuggs @McDonald’s”. And guess who went and replied… no, not McDonald’s, but the next best thing: Quorn.

    If McDonalds can take climate change seriously, why can’t the government?

    By Marc Coloma The news that McDonalds is, for the first time, introducing a plant-based line of burgers is the latest sign of the increasing consumer appetite for meat-free products. It’s particularly encouraging given a recent report provided a stark reminder of the impact of meat consumption on our environment. The report, led by a team of researchers from institutions including Oxford University, Stanford University and the University of Minnesota, showed that at least some element of dietary change in terms of eating less meat will be needed to keep global warming to below 1.5C above pre-industrial levels
