Eating at McDonalds is a lot like owning a Britney Spears or Justin Bieber album: nobody will admit to it, yet somehow millions get sold. There’s nothing to be ashamed of: McDonalds supplies cheap meals fast, and loads them up with delicious things like salt, sugar, and fat. McDonalds is famous for being able to make anything look good and sound good with its brilliant marketing campaigns and top quality advertising. That said, sometimes the old Ronald goes a little too far, and no amount of advertising dollars can save a food idea that is just plain terrible.
