Resisting the temptation to dig into your french fries after leaving the drive through at McDonald’s takes discipline that only a handful of monks on Earth possess. McDonald’s Japan just wants you to stop fighting the urge altogether with the introduction of the potato holder that makes it easy to perch your large fries in your vehicle’s cup holders.
The golden arches hold a special place in our hearts (or waistlines). The Big Mac, the chicken nuggets, the french fries — they’re all in your face delicious and define McDonald’s better than Ronald ever could. But McDonald’s in other countries get to enjoy more than just the ordinary greatness; they have wonderful menu items, like poutine, green tea McFlurrys, Spam and spaghetti.
McDonald’s french fries are so incredibly addicting that they can’t be from this world, right? Wrong! Check out how McDonald’s makes its delicious french fries in the video above, you’ll see the farms the potatoes grow on, the massive machinery used to break them down and the good ol’ fashioned frying that makes ‘em pop. I can smell the fries through YouTube.
McDonald’s doesn’t exactly have the best reputation for beef quality but if you were expecting to find ammonia-drenched, gut particle-filled pink slime sludge goop de loop, well, you’re going to be disappointed. It’s all beef. You can see how they make it above.
For the burger joint’s latest campaign in Japan, it’s going for flavours from France, India, and… Australia. But while Aussies stuff down the McOz and Serious Lamb Burgers, in Japan, the Aussie Deli sandwich looks like this. Unwrapping the sandwich reveals a bun, lettuce, bright orange cheese, and pastrami. There’s some sort of vegetable relish and mustard. And seriously, what is going on with this TV commercial?
If you’ve ever wondered how McDonald’s manages to make its burgers look so much more appetising in the pictures than they do in real life, wonder no more. This video takes a peek behind the scenes at a McDonald’s photo shoot to explain some of the tricks that are used to make you crave a quarter pounder.
