Fun and Fitness: Where's the McDeal?

Rick Melo | Sports | February 20th, 2006



If you didn't catch last week's article, I briefly talked about the McDonalds documentary “Super Size Me”. Well, if you got the urge to eat ‘McPigs' as much as I did after that tidbit, I've got a very important announcement for you. I am still pissed off about the stoppage of McDeals at the local McDonalds joints. I know I'm not the only one either. Half the fun was guessing which day yielded which McDeal as the week went by. Most of us knew it off by heart anyhow; double cheeseburger Thursdays always brought a tear of joy to my eye. Now they got some bullshit McValue menu? Good job guys, Wendy's beat you to that along time ago and they got a much better value selection. Now Burger King has ‘King Deals'? Does anybody even eat at Burger King anymore? I might start eating there just for the sake of boycotting McDonalds. Anyhow, let's get on to the actual announcement itself:

If you're on the 401 or anywhere outside of London for that matter, be sure to get off and hit one of the many McDonalds. Other cities still get McDeals. This is because London is a huge testing site of Ontario when it comes to various companies who are looking to test out new products and strategies (we were a huge testing source for Krispy Kreme doughnuts). Now you know why we're stuck with the craptacular McValue menu. We are the guinea pigs of Ontario. On the same token, this isn't always such a bad thing either. This is because us Londoners often get the first crack at new products on the market.

More and more fast food restaurants have been implementing fat-reduced menus. As peoples' awareness of healthier lifestyle choices increase, restaurants have no choice but to accommodate these new trends of behavior. That is, of course, if they plan on keeping sales on the up rise rather then the decline. Subway is widely known as the ‘healthiest fast food' establishment in the business. Jared reminds us every day by telling us how he lost 400 pounds eating subway 18 times a week, and Wendy's is another well-renowned fast food place that offers a decent menu to those looking to watch their waistlines. With their trademark salad combos and value menu meal including chili and baked potatoes, they've covered a lot of area. But McDonalds is hot in pursuit in the health rat race.

Who would have thought you could actually eat something healthy at McPigs? Let's not kid ourselves though. No dietician is going to start encouraging their clients to start eating at fast food restaurants on a regular basis. But it's nice to know that even when in a rush or on the highway, you're never really limited to picking from a complete disastrous menu. So next time you're in McDonalds ordering your salad with low-calorie dressing; be sure to tell them they better get the McDeals back because Rick Melo is #!&$!%# irate!
