    Tell me about it! I'll get a hankering once in a while for McDonalds and I usually regret it afterwards. Guess it's all the grease and fake cheese, meat, etc?

    We had these chains down here called Little Tavern that sold tiny little hamburgers by the bag. I think they were about 10 for a buck.

    Any way you look at it, we sure don't need any encouragement to eat McDonald's junk. I try to stay out of those places, but you know...:(

    Croquette, the first item is like a fritter. They should try that in the USA. My mom made potato fritters, fish fritters, corn fritters, etc. I would so be all over a fritter on the dollar menu. You ain't lived until you have been stuffed with tater fritters with fresh peaches and cream for dessert.

    Rightly or wrongly, I believed crisp fritters were relatively safe to eat when overseas. I often ate from roadside stands or market vendors. Every country that I have worked in Asia has some form of fritter, fried banana, and steamed rice. And satay, which is a strip of meat on a bamboo skewer barbequed over hot coals. Stick to that and you will survive until you can get home or to a clean restaurant. I must be some kind of deviant. In California I would bail out of the office so I could check the construction sites at lunch time. Man the taco trucks out there were fantastic. One thing we don't have in the Ozarks is good roach coach service.

    Nine per cent meal tax. Wow! Where will it stop?

    Thankfully that's exactly 24 more than I've had in the past maybe 3-4 years. "Brazillian beef" is an optimistic view of what you're getting (well, at least they laid off the pink slime)

    McDonald's double cheeseburger, small fries, small coke and two pies. My favorite on-the-go snack when I go to town to shop.

    I'm loving it.

    15 cent burgers and 12 cent fries are fond childhood memories.

    Hi Nate

    You may want to ask if they are going to have this special. These special launches are not done in all stores or at the same time. I talked to the store manager while waiting for the clock to click midnight and he said they already did this in the Brown Ave Manchester NH store and sold 300 burgers during the hour special with the limit of 10 burgers per person. So that could have been only 30 people! LOL

    Any way, I got my 10 and just posted the bag above. LOL

    Right on. We used to stop a little places and get them for as low as $.09 apiece. I also remember the first McDonald's place to open in MI. It is still there in the northern part of Lansing. If memory is right, at the time the burgers were either .10 or .15 apiece. The sign read x thousand sold. Don't remember the number for sure but it was a lot less than a million. Probably 100,000 at the time.

    Speaking of optimistic......
    Gotta say though, we sometimes stop at the Croc store before the shopping ritual begins, but prefer Culver's. Have no idea what they use, but it looks like some sort of meat.!!

    If you can't remember a 15 cent hamburger, you're still a kid. >>

    Two years overseas dreaming of a nice thick juicy Texas cheeseburger. Guys in my unit kept going on about McDonald's. I had never seen one. Got home and one had opened. I went in and they handed me that little meat and bread snack. Tossed it on the way out and went to Whataburger and got a real cheeseburger.

    Yeah, in California around where I grew up it was Giant Burger. Huge things, then if you ordered a piece of pie for dessert you got (no kidding) 1/4 of a pie. You want it Ala Mode? You get like a pint and a half of soft-serve ice cream on top. Years later in Albuquerque my go-to was Blake's Lottaburger...great big ol' cheeseburger with the works, including green chiles. M-m-m-m-m! Just can't eat like that anymore. One of those burgers would be two meals for me today.

    We had Gino's before McDonald's hit in Baltimore. You could get "A three course meal for 47 cents" (hamburger, milkshake and fries). They merged with Kentucky Fried Chicken in the late sixties, then faded out of existence until last year when they re-opened in PA and MD. You know you're getting up there in years if you can remember the jingle...Everybody goes to Gino's, 'cause Gino's is the place to go...

    But I digress.

    Just think, in a few years, the kids of today will be saying, "If you can't remember a $15.00 hamburger, you're still a kid".
    Or, "remember when gas was only $3.50/gallon, man, those were the days".;lol

    I think it's been at least 10 years since I've been in a McDonalds.

    me too...I just use the drive through ;lol. I hope Don's colon in ok. Its not the "beef?" that gets you, its that warm pickle slice. Warm pickles are creapy, probably what causes zombieism...zimbiosis,zomb....whatever. Stay away from warm pickles if you dont want to become a zombie.

    Hello

    I had 3 that night and 3 the next day for lunch. Gave the rest to the family for lunch so it was cheap eats.

    I have been a customer for over 50 years here and there, so I deserve a break today!
