He took his voucher to the counter, looking forward to getting stuck into a free McFlurry, but sadly, he was turned away empty-handed.

Macarons at McDonald's

Macarons at McDonald's

McDonald’s are going to start selling macarons. Now, macarons already look like tiny Big Macs, but really, all Bitterwallet is asking for... AGAIN... is an all-day breakfast. Even if it was just at the weekends when we've got crushing hangovers and aren't up in time. Anyway, back to the story at hand - after showing…

Survey suggests people would not be fans of a rise in Beer Duty

It’s almost March and that means we’re edging ever closer to the next Budget. What Gorgeous George has tucked away inside his little red box remains to be seen, but in an attempt to divert his attentions elsewhere, the British Beer and Pub Association (BBPA) has only gone and commissioned a YouGov poll to reveal…

McDonald's stick some Camembert on some burgers

Even though everyone pretty much wants McDonald's to be honest, and just make greasy, glorious treats, they've been pushing the idea of healthiness and fanciness. They've been offering table service and reducing salt, and all that jive. We want sausage and egg McMuffins, all day long, rather than the stupid 6 minute window from when…

What a Happy Meal looks like after 6 years... and why you shouldn't worry

Jennifer Lovdahl bought a Happy Meal from McDonald's six years ago. Instead of eating it, like any normal person would, she decided to leave it for 6 years. You see, she was doing an experiment, and after all this time, it doesn't look that different. Lovdahl did her experiment and posted it on Facebook, because she…

McDonald's roll out table service at 400 UK branches

If McDonald's want to make loads of money, all they need to do is serve their breakfast menu all day. Obviously, they're putting that off for some reason (apart from in the US, where it is working), so they're trying table service. The gristle vendor is rolling out table service to around 400 of their…
