its only the bun getting smaller yeah?
ultimate burger meal is good for 10 bucks mate
Mmm...I like HJs...And Hungry Jacks.
I had a breakfast mcmuffin the other day and it seemed smaller than usual. A friend also independently commented on this.
Do you know if this is one-off or has the breakfast menu been downsized in the past?
so technically, we could still order a quarter pounder with lettuce, tomato, and mayo, which is the equiv of a mcfeast right?
great, you can feel hungry again before you've even finished eating...
way to sell more shit maccas
faggots i swear to god the cheeseburger used to be an actual burger....
Now the only burger i consider worthy of the burger title there is the double quarter.
Big mac is actually a tiny mac.
yep. i cant believe everyone is pissed by 1.25cm off a bun
the meat is already a little too big for the bun
1.25cm off means i'm holding the meat itself
i dont want my heands to get that oily
they're not reducing patty size are they?
or are they making it smaller but thicker?
i know they can't make it under 1/4 of a pound, false advertisement and such.
ED: also, dbl qtr + big mac sauce for the win
+bacon if i'm feeling ritzy.
want a real big mac? +lettuce then :/
ED: deluxe lettuce stuff would probably taste better though
Bern Edit: 10char = ban, see you in 24 hours.
Yeah, it should be good though cos then u can eat more cos u wont fill up on the crappy bread.
I am young but I've noticed only KFC, Maccas getting smaller. Not really HJ - unless we are talking about the Hj chicken burger - I could have sworn it used to be full size but I cant be sure
because if you're decreasing the size of the product, your raw costs decrease, and our purchase cost is not decreasing.
That's what gets people pissed.
I don't fuckin care if it's only a 3 cent difference in the price of the burger, make the price cut.
3c isn't much to me, but 3 cents, over 10,000 burgers a day is 300 a day.. which.. admittedly, isn't much to macdonalds either i guess..
ummm.... there (as mentioned before) is a price cut in the burgers. its a 5c reduction to match what is saved by the company....
I can't believe how passionate some people are about a burger.
it is a bit sad isnt it.
well now it will be in line with the rest of the world. and for those of you complaining about other buns changing, its been over 3 or 4 years minimum since any bun has changed size but im pretty sure its been the same for a lot longer than that
You clearly do not watch How I Met Your Mother
300 a day X 730 stores X 365 days = $79,935,000
$80 million bucks a year is hardly small change, that's an idea of the economies of scale Maccas work from.
the $300 a day was based off of 10,000 burgers sold, a figure which would already encompass all national stores.
so their yearly loss (going off the actual 5c drop) would be $182 500, correct?
its not a matter of just "being passionate about a burger" its the fact that everything you buy nowadays is getting smaller but still costs the same, its the fact that as it is even a regular person can order a large mcdonalds meal and still feel hungry afterwards.
people are just getting sick of seeing their favourite foods and drinks and household products shrink smaller and smaller and being fed the same marketing BS when we all know its all about the company saving a few more cents.
