McDonald’s Australia, We Need to Talk About Your Fries

Listen up, Australia! It’s time we had a serious chat about the state of our beloved Macca’s fries. You know, those golden, crispy delights that we’ve been munching on since the dawn of time (or at least since the first McDonald’s opened its doors Down Under). Well, I hate to break it to you, but our fries are in a sorry state, and it’s time we did something about it.

First things first, let’s talk about this whole “Supersize Fries” promo that McDonald’s Australia has been running. Sounds great, right? Who wouldn’t want a massive serving of those delectable potato sticks? Well, I hate to burst your bubble, but it’s all a bit of a con. You see, despite the name, you can’t actually supersize your fries. The largest size you can get is still just a regular old large. And let me tell you, those large fries are anything but.

We decided to put Macca’s to the test and ordered medium and large fries at three different restaurants across the country. And what did we find? Disappointment, that’s what. The fry boxes were barely filled, with sad, lonely little potato sticks rattling around in their cardboard prisons. It’s like the Macca’s staff were told to be as stingy as possible with their portions. I mean, come on guys, if I’m paying $5.25 for a large fries (which, by the way, is already pretty steep), the least you could do is fill the box to the brim.

But it’s not just the portion sizes that are the problem. The quality of the fries themselves is also seriously lacking. We counted the fries in each box (because apparently, we have nothing better to do with our time) and found that you only get about 15 extra fries in a large compared to a medium. And don’t even get me started on the inconsistency. One fry might be a tiny, burnt little nub, while the next could be a long, soggy mess. It’s like playing a game of potato roulette every time you reach into that box.

Now, I know what you’re thinking. “But it’s just fries, who cares?” Well, I’ll tell you who cares. The people of Australia care. We’re a nation of fry lovers, and we deserve better than this. And don’t even get me started on the comparison to the USA. Have you seen the size of their fries? It’s like they’re feeding a small army with every serving. Meanwhile, we’re over here fighting over the last few measly bits at the bottom of the box.

So, McDonald’s Australia, I’m calling you out. It’s time to step up your fry game. Be more generous with your portions. Give us the crispy, golden goodness we deserve. And while you’re at it, maybe reconsider this whole “Supersize Fries” promo. Because let’s be real, there’s nothing super about it.

Australia, let’s band together and demand better from our beloved Macca’s. We deserve fries that are filled to the brim, consistently delicious, and worth every penny. Because at the end of the day, a nation is only as strong as its fries. And right now, our fries are letting us down. It’s time for a fry revolution, and it starts with you. So, next time you’re at Macca’s, speak up and demand the fries you deserve. Together, we can make Australia great again, one crispy, golden fry at a time.
