Not Actually Value Meals

I went to McDonald's with Max earlier today and we made a very interesting observation: Value Meals are not the most cost efficient way to get food. Purchasing a double cheeseburger with large fries and large drink was $0.89 cheaper than purchasing a regular Big and Tasty meal (the cheapest of the value meals). I could have purchased a second double cheeseburger and still had it be much cheaper than any large value meal. I am also reminded of my recent meal at the Ashland, NH Burger King where Sam got three Rodeo Burgers, fries and a drink for less than my double bacon cheeseburger meal.

Henceforth, I shall no longer assume that a value meal is the cheapest way for me to get what I want. It's kind of sad because I can remember when value meals actually were a good value.

Or you could actually invest in eating quality food and not turn into a fat cow.

How dare you suggest that the Rodeo burger is anything but the epitome of healfulness!

Did y'all notice that Burger King today announced a breakfast item that includes two eggs, a sausage patty, and three strips of bacon, totalling something like 750 calories and 47 grams of fat? Critics are calling it "food porn," but Burger King says they just want to catch up with McD's, who has a substantial upper hand in breakfast sales.
