    I have had McD's exactly twice this year and one of em was on Waianae side because I wanted to see if it was really possible to have SPAM and eggs for breakfast, LOL!!
    I have yet to fathom why American parents get their little kids sucking off Ronald's teat as early as a year old or less.
    If anyone on Oahu is NOT happy , feel free to trade places with me.

    True story...I had a carpenter working on a remodel 20+ years ago. His wife left him and their baby in the middle of the job so he brought the approx. one year old to my job along with a playpen. The baby was in that playpen all day, outside. Lunch was a McDonald's hamburger and fries torn up into tiny bits and tossed onto the playpen mat. Coke was in the baby bottle. Think, flies, mosquitoes, dirty hands and feet, etc. I occasionally wonder what became of that child.

    A large portion of the enjoyment of food comes via the nose.
    Entering an eatery with a rumbling stomach makes the nose even more alert.
    The evocative smell of french fries can be very seductive.

    The large amounts of fat,grease and triglycerides make these foods energy dense,
    but over the long haul damaging to health.
    I end this message wondering why
    McDonalds does not have Onion rings. ?

    What a shame!! I know what happens if someone tries to sue in Hawaii, is it the same way if you report a bad or abusive situation to child protective services?

    Twenty+ years ago this wasn't considered an abusive situation...probably just an ill informed one. I doubt it would get the attention of CPS today unless they got multiple complaints but I could be wrong.

    A lot of these food ingredients influence the human metabolism to
    require more junk food.
    The result is fast food junkies.
    Wean off these menus and the dollar value will appear over time.
    The consumption of fast food beef products is linked to Chrohns syndrome.
    The cooking oils used in franchise fast food joints are chemically very diverse
    and are critical in looking at overall health patterns.
    Certainly health patterns that the state will pay for, oneday.

    A few years ago, the President of McDonalds Corp. (since retired) was a client of mine. On one occassion he and his wife requested a noon meeting at my office. Even though there were probably three McDonalds outlets within a mile of my office, they brought in deli sandwiches from a local deli. I decided that it would be impolite for me to comment on their choice of lunch so the subject didn't come up.

    He did mention that he was working on a more healthy menu at McDonalds which evolved into the few healthy alternatives on McDonlds menu today. He and his wife were very nice people with very interesting backgrounds. Although very wealthy, not uppity at all.

    Oh, BTW, I don't patronize McDonalds other than to use their bathrooms and uaifi will purchase a cup of coffee (I can't drink coffee).

    Secret ingredients? Anyone else remember the lawsuit about their supposed "vegetarian" fries and hash browns?

    CBS News

    McDonald's also posted an apology on its Web site, acknowledging that mistakes were made in communicating to customers and the public about the ingredients in the fries and hash browns. The vegetable oil used to prepare the fries and hash browns was not pure, but contained essence of beef for flavoring purposes.
    The lawsuits were filed on behalf of any vegetarian who ate McDonald's fries after 1990. That was the year the company announced its restaurants would no longer use beef fat to cook fries and that only pure vegetable oil would be used.

    The Oak Brook, Illinois-based fast-food giant responded to the lawsuits by saying it never claimed the fries it sells in the United States are vegetarian. But the company apologized for any confusion surrounding the use of beef flavoring in the production of fries.
    Does that sound like a company to be trusted as being forthright in what it tells the public about its products?
    Now run along and play, but don’t get into trouble.

    I am still mystifyed as to why mcdonalds does not have onion rings on their menu.

    The last business quarter was tough for them.

    Let's see some onion rings and get the company into the black again.

    Which restaurant makes the best onion rings?

    The Burgerking onion rings are about an inch each in size.

    The trick with them is not to overcook them.

    On occasion I have tasted superb fried onions there, but it really depends on the master chef.

    These small ones can be easily overcooked and dry as a result.

    Over at Jack in the Box, their version is tasty but skimpy in portion size.

    They are much larger rings but fewer in number.

    Usually they were more carefully fried.

    Onions are an excellent munchable and in fact a portion of the

    wages of those who built the Pyramids was redeemed with Onions.

    Greg...I've tried the taro pie a couple of times and noticed a slight french fries oil taste. I would've liked it if it hadn't been for that. Possibly that was store specific. Dunno.

    McRibs have been around, off and on, for many years. Has McD's recently changed the ingredients?

    McDonald's Taro Pie


    McDonald's Haupia Pie

    I preferred the Haupia Pie. They should add small pineapple chunks in it and sell it as a McDonald's Pina Colada Pie. There ya' go!
