    Like most secret sauces it's only a secret sauce/ingredient cause its marketed that way; but who didn't already know that?

    That article says that MacDonald's sells 17 Big Macs per second in the US. Is there any question why people are overweight?

    Cool video. Great idea -- making a fresher, healthier Big Mac at home, preferably using organic beef.

    One of my coaches has never been to a McDonald's. It sounded un-American at first. Now my vehicle almost never stops at a fast-food place.

    That's not quite how it is made. Our cans list the ingredients as something like "soybean oil, pickles, blah blah blah". Endo and Jim are right on the money in that it's thousand island with pickles in it, making that the secret to the big mac.

    Why would anyone want to make that.....


    In-N-Out....way better...

    I don't think that there is anyone online that has come close to the recipe.

    Thousand Island...yuck...

    I question whether they use mayo....I can normally tell when that stuff is in a recipe when I eat it because I really don't like the taste of mayo.

    McDonalds is nasty, and so are mostly all fast food places. Also they use the lowest quality of meat. I wouldn't eat a big mac if you gave me one for free! icon_eek.gif

    Well, if the 1,468,800 Big Macs are distributed evenly to the approximately 313,900,000 people in the U.S., I just enjoyed my 0.46 % of a burger, and feel fatter already.

    Big Macs don't make people overweight. In fact, nothing at McDonald's makes people overweight.


    I agree. I pass Mcdonalds every day and have been tempted to go in on occasion. But it's something called will power (and a desire to look more human than pig) that keeps me from doing so. icon_biggrin.gif

    I'm just responding so Wrestlervic will want to make out with me.

    When I was in college I would eat big macs all the time but I haven't had one in probably 30 years. But, yeah, even then I knew it was a doctored up thousand island dressing.

    Daft.

    It's like saying "cigarettes don't make you an addicted smoker". Ummm....yeah, that's pretty much what they are DESIGNED to do. McDonalds is "food" in the same way porn is "just a couple of people having sex". Few things in this world are engineered to elicit a particular response more than the "food" at McDonalds.
    Not quite. McDonald's is a business, remember. We do serve food and we want you to eat our food, but in order to make money, we're going to use the cheapest ingredients possible through not-so-lean meats (even though we really did use 90% vs. our 70-75% lean burger patties in the 90s briefly but they didn't sell well at all) and using economies of scale, in addition to every advertisement trick in the book such as color scheme, heavy airspace and fashionable lobby furnishings. However, the customer is also going to have quite a bit of say in what we serve. You can order your food however you want, believe it or not. Like for example- you can get a classic grilled chicken sandwich with roja salsa (I accidentally ordered that once) instead of mayo, or a mcchicken without mayo and grilled chicken. I'm not going to lie- after working here and learning a bit of the history of McDonald's, I can honestly say that we really don't have the intention of leaving our customers overweight. Plus everybody's body is different as well- I personally was the fat kid growing up (I've said this many times on here), but I know so many people that can eat a Thanksgiving feast and lose weight, so a double quarter pounder would effect my physique more than said people I know.

    I occasionally ate at McDonald's in my college years, but not much since then. I'm not surprised what the secret sauce is made of. About a year ago I passed a McDonald's and turned in. I ordered a few things and sat there and ate my food. It wasn't very good, but it wasn't awful. Mostly though, it was some of the people I saw (customers) who were a turn-off.

    My grandparents had a house near Ray and Joan Kroc, when they were all four still alive. At a cocktail gathering in their neighborhood, I met Joan and talked with her a bit. I asked her at one point if she ever ate McDonald's food. Her answer was exactly this, "Oh my Heavens, NO."
