I feel like McDonald's is getting too expensive.

I have not been to McD's since covid - what is their straw situation atm? Can you get 1 if you ask? Or do I have to pack straws to try this drink?
I tried this drink today and I found it to have a really harsh taste. i knew I should have stuck to my mango pineapple. I didn't even notice the straws were not plastic.

Some locations have triple cheeseburger for $3.99. $1 more than McDouble but 1 extra patty + 2 extra slices of cheese

@Firetech You should try the Paper straw @ McDonald's.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

See? You won't try it. You really don't know. You're clueless. Stop telling people something is no good if you've never used it.

I’ve tried it. Not a fan. Carry metal straws in the car now to avoid these. I’ve also agreed that we are going to disagree on this.

I like the peach passionfruit smoothie. The peach taste isn't overwhelmingly in your face and the passionfruit is subtle. Good mix. Probably my second favourite after the mango pineapple smoothie. The paper straw was fine and same as any other paper straw.

I happened to get a Starbucks strawberry creme frappuccino (medium, after taxes $6.16 in Ontario) that same weekend and McD's frappes and smoothies (medium, after taxes $3.68) easily taste better and are better value.

Also like that McD Canada uses wood cutlery now.
