Why is the vanilla ice cream cone at McDonalds so fucking good?

And only .59. What do they do to their ice cream to make it so good?

Cater to low standards.

by Anonymous reply 1 06/26/2014

don’t be fooled. the high priced ice cream is not made of any better or higher quality ingredients.

like the $250 jeans. There was a PBS special on the jeans manufacturing plants in China. It showed the same plant making the Wal Mart jeans and the $250–$500 ones, and the workers said that in many cases, the WM jeans were actually made to higher standards than the expensive ones.

Now I am not a WM fan nor do I buy clothes there. Just sayin you don’t always get what you pay for.

Got a McDonalds milkshake a few years ago and accidentally left it in my car overnight. The next morning I found a cup full of watery liquid and a brown lump.

Point is, it’s all chemicals and loaded with more fat than a Big Mac. It’s nothing but a cone full of DEATH

I don’t know where you buy your vegetables, R12, but I’ve never had that happen. I left fruit in my trunk overnight once and other than a cloud of fruit flies and a lingering smell of pineapple, no bad effects. However, it’s c9onceivable that a real milkshake would spoil, i.e. curdle or smell bad. Not turn into a brown lump.

I’m not saying ice creams that you buy in the supermarket are any good either. They do have all that shit in them too. It’s just that there is no real ice cream out there anymore. You have to make your own and even then unless you use organic products including organic grass fed not ultra pasteurized cream you’re still getting a shit product. If you do use all that it will probably end up costing 15 a pint. We just can’t win these days.

American ice cream is crap because of the short cuts often taken. For one thing, its whipped with a lot of air so you can make it look like you are getting more then you actually are.

McDonald’s takes this to a whole different level. A chocolate shake left on the counter will in fact be half size by morning. They should be called chocolate foams.

Of course foam needs stabilizers so chemicals are added to keep it stiff long enough to look good. Then you need more sugar and salt, because it tastes bland. But real sugar is expensive which why you get high fructose corn syrup. which also works as a preservative.

Thanks fast food schill, I was wondering about the price of an ice cream cone at McDonalds.

by Anonymous reply 35 06/27/2014

OP I too am always up for the cheap little thrill which is the Mickey D’s “cone.” And I have never deluded myself that is is healthy or pure. t just tastes great and the consistency/texture is heaven. I am single and of even to have a large amount of disposable income for foodstuffs- I could purchase the high end stuff all day everyday if I wanted to, but I don’t. Rich, overdone heavy cream ice cream doesn’t do it for me at all. The light(tasting) bit of vanilla silken yumminess is exactly what tastes right to me. As for the “shakes”, I cannot attest to what they use now, but back in the 1980’s, McDonalds was one of my father’s biggest purchasing clients. His company manufactured polypropylene in many different forms. The form which McD’s used were the tiny little globules. Yes, the shakes were thickened with PLASTIC.(actually synthetic olefin) The guy in The Graduate was right.

I am always shocked at how terrible American “ice cream” is compared to what we enjoy here in Canada. Not to oput down our good neighbours, usually anything to do with food , such as quality, variety, availbility you are world leaders.

But seriously WTF is wrong with your “ice cream”? I mean it’s awful, we’re talking Chinese buffet restaurant ice cream style, inedible, watery as a Quebecoise. snatch or hard as frozen muskox shit on the tundra tasteless , just plain fucking AWFUL crap !

I’m talking about the stuff you consider “gourmet” not soft serve , but the brands like Edys’, Breyers, hell even Ben & Jerrys simply inedible, or as we say up here, “American ice cream like making love in a canoe in January “. it’s fucking close to frozen water !

Many of the products for sale in the US ice cream aisle at your grocery store are ‘frozen desserts’ that are often made with edible oil products and don’t contain the nutrients naturally found in milk. Read the Nutrition Facts table on the label: frozen desserts are made with oils like palm kernel or coconut oil,

Anything labelled “ICE CREAM” up here is mandated by law to be made with 100% Canadian Whole Milk,including ingredients derived from milk, e.g. cream, milk powder, whey powder).

I suppose it’s like US chocolate vs British chocolate, you grow up with the US version you just assume it is the best it can possibly. usually you’re spot on America, but your ice cream really is crap.

R98, I hesitate to correct t your post, even though it is severely inaccurate i hate to discourage one pf America’s foremost foreign affairs experts by pointing out your errors, but it must be done, it’s the only way to learn is through ones mistakes, eh?

The Canadian retail giant “Zellers” ( still a half credit for getting it almost correct at least phon-net-cally ( thas means spoken aloud sweetie) was sold by it’s parent company,The Hudsons Bay Company ( btw way class it ios the oldest the oldest commercial corporation in North America (in continuous operation for 344 years) and one of the oldest in the world. A fur trading business for much of its existence, today Hudson’s Bay Company owns and operates retail stores throughout Canada and the United States, including Hudson’s Bay, Home Outfitters, Lord & Taylor, Saks Fifth Avenue and two Zellers liquidation stores. Kmart Canada was acquired in 1998 and merged with Zellers

Zellers is still owned by HBC but as been reduced to a chain of two liquidation stores following the successful sale of its lease portfolio to Target in 2011, sorry but it has niot been sold to Wal-mart, even target just took over the retail leases of former Zellers location, but the brand is still owned by HBC.

HBC also just bought Saks 5th Ave., Canadians love shopping in the USA, not for the merchandise per se, but for the obsequious “Uncle Tom” style of “Yas Sir, right away Sir” toadying offered by American style retail staff . Canadian retail service follows the French influence of “go fuck yourself, I am going for a smoke”” service model.

We marvel at how servile you can be, see we never really had a strong service industry, and not many slaves to speak of up here, .. ( except for all those runaways you couldn’t catch and ended up here.)

By the by, we still have quite a few of yours, so when can we expect you to come up here and take them back home, like the good neighbour we know you are?
