Open Post: Hosted By Fan-Created McDonald’s Ice Cream Sandwiches Made Out Of McFlurries And Hash Browns
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to put crunchy grease AND a cold dessert into your mouth at the same time? Hold on to your butts because TikTok’s got another horrible food item to test your gag reflex. The app’s food scientists have declared that today’s hottest combo is slopping some Oreo McFlurry in between two slabs of hash browns. Is this the Luther Vandross special but the dessert version? Just because you can make something, doesn’t mean you should.
Two weeks ago on Valentine’s Day, McDonald’s started selling the Cardi B and Offset Meal in honor of, you guessed it, Cardi B and Offset. Together, the couple is shilling this meal bundle, which allegedly includes their favorite Mickey D’s menu items. I say “allegedly” because my go-to McDonald’s meal is so disgusting, so shameful, so incredibly sauce-filled, that I would totally make up a fake one for the promotion. Anywho, McDonald’s is promoting the bundle as a special date night meal. But, according to The Wall Street Journal (via The Takeout), some McDonald’s franchisees don’t want to promote it. They seem to believe that Cardi and Offset’s “lyrics and lifestyle” don’t reflect “the company’s values.” Wait… so strip club brawls, wet ass pussies, and serial cheating is considered worse than the Hamburglar? A wanted criminal addicted to hamburglary?? Continue reading
In a world where reboots of classic 80s and 90s films abound and Disney adults exist, it’s no surprise that McDonald’s is trying to get into that game. Nostalgia means money, baby! The fast-food giant announced the launch of its limited-time only Happy Meals for adults. It has everything that you recall from your childhood: the classic golden arched box, junk food that your slow metabolism can no longer fully process, and disturbing toys! Apparently being a grown-up means that every aspect of your life must include some form of horror, even the whimsical Happy Meal.
It’s been two years since TV icon Regis Philbin departed from this planet. He may be gone, but he’s not forgotten. It was recently revealed that Regis was the proud owner of a gold card gifted by McDonald’s. This wasn’t any run-of-the-mill card though. It bestowed Regis with one of the earth’s greatest honors: free McDonald’s for life! Not only did Regis hold the Guinness World Record for most hours spent on TV, but he also held a rare magic card that granted him free fries. The legend of Regis grows! And who knew that Dinah Lohan’s Carvel Black Card could ever be topped?
Social media can take us anywhere. There are some great travel accounts that show us the ins and outs of countries around the world that we wouldn’t normally get to see. Instagram posts of the Taj Mahal? Check. TikToks about Buckingham Palace? Check. Yet the one video that’s managed to capture everyone’s attention is one that features a beautiful, surprising, and enigmatic structure: a McDonald’s in Maine. Yes, I know. We as a people are doomed. In our defense, it’s no ordinary McDonald’s. It looks like a house!
Today would have been Kim Kardashian and Kanye West‘s eighth wedding anniversary and I’m surprised they almost made it for that long. Because I thought they would stay married for about a year before he spiraled out of control but I guess they wanted their love to be more like a limited series and torture themselves, and all of us, for many years. In any case, Kanye has found a different way to celebrate himself by returning to Instagram. Not that we missed him, but he must not be getting enough attention because he’s back again and he’s connecting with design house Muji to help McDonald‘s with its packaging rebrand.
