Okay Im pissed, I Went to the Big arches this morning and bought a whole bunch of stuff ( i dont do this often, i swear). There has been some claim about the size of the burgers and no one really has hard evidence. So i present the following to the jury:
The burgers are smaller
Ok I have no HARDCORE PROOF that they are, and Mcdonalds RELY on the fact that no-one takes photos of thier burgers every year for archive use, BUT i know.. Just compare a hash brown and bacon mcmuffin side by side, youll see what i mean. They let this slip.
The upside is that the muffins cant get much smaller, if they do, theyll be considered "Gourmet Canapes"
My hotcakes shrunk
A few years ago when hotcakes still came in foam boxes and the BB still existed, They both came in rougly the same size box as each other. A dissasembled sausage and egg mcmuffin + hash brown would be a compact fit into todays carboard box presented to me, even based on the small muffins currently used today.
One more thing: the syrup seems to alway last... as the hotcakes shrunk the syrup serving hasnt, its still huge. It was pretty much the prefect amount years ago,and again, It is around double what i feel most eaters require.
Items that look they could be shrunk further
Hash browns i reckon were actually smaller, and somehow either grew, or just look really out of proportion when compared to a muffin side by side. I would go as far claiming the Hash brown was near 50% the size of the ones today, or have the muffins shrunk by 50%??? Im not sure but ill be photographing more of my food from now on.
And Wheres my big breakfast, and why cant i get a shake at breakfast?
Its very upsetting Mcdonalds took away the BB, It will be remebered well. Some say its just an unmade sausage and egg roll with a hash brown, some say the scrambled egg was better for you than a fried one, but most agrgee that the ensuing hash brownie muffin was well worth it.
McDonalds dont understand, its wasnt about the eggs, it was about the labour of love, and how food tastes better when youve (assembled) it yourself
Now hopefully Mcdonalds are clever like i think they are and have a brand monitor going, and that youve picked up on this post.
