I am terribly sick of biting into a McDonalds hamburger and hurting my teeth on the random piece of hard bone or cartilage that seems to be in ever burger I buy from them. And it’s not singular to my most convenient location. It seems that any McDonalds I eat at, I have a (roughly estimated) 70% chance of getting a burger with this random cow-shrapnel in it. It ruins my meal and often my day. Just the fear of getting one of these all-too-common “bone” burgers has made me pass up McDonalds on countless locations even though I don’t like the taste of most other fast-food burgers. And when I do occasionally give in to the desire of a McDee’s burger, I am reminded why I usually drive on by.
So this last tooth-reverberating episode was the end of McDonalds for me. Wendys, Sonic, Hardees, Burger King, Steak and Shake– all these share the ranks of fast-food joints that I have not bitten into a hard piece of whatever it is that McDonalds allows into their all beef pattys. With so many options, I can’t believe I haven’t made this decision sooner.
