I really wanted to title this post ‘McDonald’s is on my Sh*tlist‘ for this personal rant here, but decided against it. There is nothing earth-shattering to report, like suspicious ingredients or food horror stories, but instead, a few things that are irking me.
You Can’t Order Skim Milk for McCafe Drinks Anymore
I recently started drinking Caramel Mochas from McDonald’s again – there’s a relatively new one in town, so we’re dealing with a brand new McCafe machine. If you read my previous post titled “This Disturbing News about McCafe Drinks at McDonalds Makes Me Cringe,” I learned a few things about the machines that turned me off for quite a while.
The McCafe beverages, like the White Chocolate Mocha and Caramel Mochas really hit the spot when I’m craving hot coffee drinks. When ordered with non-fat milk, I don’t have to feel completely guilty about it. But now…McDonald’s has eliminated that option. So now, they only make their coffee drinks with whole milk now. I know I can’t be the only one that opted for the non-fat milk, but it’s gone, and I’m disappointed to say the least. Yes, something minor to many…but I like saving calories where I can, so I can enjoy other things later.
Another thing McDonald’s is not offering anymore, which surprised me….
No More Senior Discounts for Coffee.
That’s a bummer. This isn’t an offer that I partake in, but my mother got a shock when she inquired. It’s a shame because I’ve noticed that McDonald’s in the morning is a popular hangout for the elderly. I’ve strolled through and sometimes sat down in McDonald’s to do work, and have seen large groups meet up with their newspapers, order coffee, talk politics, share family stories, and just have a good ol’ time. And, I’m pretty sure that having a senior discount on their coffee is helpful for many who do or don’t live on a fixed income.
So, there you have it, a few changes I recently discovered about McDonald’s that I don’t like.
