Do you remember when their food used to taste good?

 

Pepperidge Farm remembers.

I only eat at fast food restruarants when I have to.

 

Its not even worth it unless you get from the dollar menu. You could go to a deli counter at a supermarket and get a better, fresher sandwich for the same price as you would get at a fast food place.

you sound like one angry mad dude...


No hate or chip on my shoulder. My mother was born in London, so I have lots of friends and family over there. I do enjoy pushing buttons now and again. Just be glad you don't work with me, I am inherently disagreeable, LOL!

Eating McD's right now. Got my Mcdouble and fries, I'll see if I can tell if it's Heinz or not when I'm done.

So you call it garbage and say people must have poor taste and you still buy it? Seems a tad hypocritical of you. 
 
Knowledge of what food is good for you isn't exactly 'expert' level stuff. It's actually fairly basic stuff. 
 
'that war'? Not relevant and no one outside of the US cares. The fact you think a bunch of peasants won shows your lack of knowledge on it.
 
Seems like you have a bit of a chip on your shoulder.  :)


Trust me, your attempts to anger me are useless. I know that last sentence got your goat!

Woohoo! 'Merica wins again!

Not at all. Your replies have been off-topic and avoided any questions so not really surprised where it went. 

 

I'll just have to remember not to try and have a constructive discussion with you in the future as it doesn't seem possible. 

 

All in all I couldn't care less.  :)

Ok so, I've eaten my fair share of McDonalds ketchup and Heinz from the bottle/plastic bottle. And I can tell you, they do not taste the same at all.

 

And McDonalds ketchup packets do not say Heinz on them. It even says, "Made in U.S.A. for exclusive use by McDonald's Restaurants"

 

Ahhh HAH, so this story is not even that big of a story after all... look at this. This is in the OP, but buried half way through, going to bold it for everyone else.

 

 

Heinz-branded ketchup is currently served only in two major U.S. markets - Pittsburgh and Minneapolis.

But many overseas McDonald's had served Heinz with its fare.

The rest of the country dips their fries into unbranded ketchup from dispensers, or "fancy ketchup" packets.

The severing of Heinz could mean good news for condiment rival Hunt's, the second-largest ketchup producer in the country.

You guys know there is more to this story then they are saying? A big part of the squabble is the fact that Heinz wants to stop 100% making the foil packages and move to their "Dip and squeeze" packages which cost more.. and McDonalds doesn't want to take on the extra cost... and has no extra branding on them besides "Heinz" unlike the current ones that has McDonalds written on them

Oh, you mean the one lined question. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see the politics here, so I gave you statements that are hard to argue with. There was only so much I could say before actually telling you I don't care about the health risks. Life is a health risk. How does eating it make me a hypocrite too? I didn't say I hated them, I said the food used to taste better. My greatest McDonalds sadness was discontinuing the deep fried cherry pies. No point in complaining about that if they are gone. It's not like you care anyway, you are probably a vegan or something that wanted to bash us big mean meat eaters.

As far as having future discussions, I really don't like talking to over political people anyways. I am getting tired of it. I don't want to know about the world's problems anymore. I do not want to save the world, I don't care about carbon footprints, and I certainly throw aluminum cans and batteries in with all of the regular trash. Smoking bans are silly, college kids need to drink more, and fat children need more video games.

Then you're ridiculous. Even a child could cook tastier, healthier food than the crap they sell at McDonald's.

 

Taste is subjective. Their "gourmet" burgers aren't bad. They're a few dollars less than what dine-in restaurants charge but taste pretty good. And of course the fries are something nice and salty to taste every now and then. :p

 

It might be a regional thing where menu items on McD's on one side of the planet differs from another.

 

... as for the topic at hand, I'm not a real fan of ketchup (except on sausages) so a ketchup brand switch is no biggie.

This is my favorite sauce for both eating Mcnuggets and dipping French fries. I wish they sold a gallon of it.
