    I'll cop to the powdered iced tea, but Canadian bacon is just what Americans call back bacon (round bacon) - our bacon here is exactly the same as yours. If you order bacon anywhere here, you'll get bacon, not some weird round stuff. Sorry, have to shoot down your Shatner theory.
    So wait...what do you call Canadian bacon in Canada?
    Back bacon. If you want bacon, you ask for...bacon.
    And, is it true that American cheese is called mild cheddar up there?
    Oh God no. American cheese is called fake cheese slices.
    And despite all this, William Shatner is still someone's fault.
    I can't argue too much with that.

    Just back from lunch with this update:

    Baja Fresh always seems to have good iced tea.

    You know what sucks there?

    The large-drink "device".

    The only large cup they have is this ridiculous reusable hard plastic thing with an enormous hard plastic straw. You're supposed
    to save this ugly thing and bring it back for $.99 refills.

    So, sadly, I go with the under-sized medium...and now am thirsty.

    Good tea while it lasted...

    You know that, until recently, McDonalds owned Chipotle, right?

    Sure. Still owns a piece, I think. But they're very different places.

    Most importantly, I don't think Chipotle sells coffee, so they can't "cross brew".

    OK, EddyTeddyFreddy is obviously dangerously insane. But I've had reasonable luck with the ice tea at Wendy's, if they have them in your corner of the world.

    What are the odds that this thread was printed out and passed around a McDonald's conference room?

    Okay...why the hell would my McDonald's tea taste like cookies?

    Today it's vaguely sweet and tastes like vanilla.

    I swear to God, now they're just screwing with me.

    I hate that clown. Hate him.

    I'm glad this thread is back, I missed it. I don't like iced tea. I like water. Water is so delicious I want to take it behind the middle school and get it pregnant.

    After another dismal week of buying tainted McDonald's tea, I sadly accept the fact that the fountain stuff at Burger King is, at least, not gross.

    It's not tea, either...don't they have that nasty Lipton Brisk soft drink type tea?

    I think that's exactly what it is. You're right, it's a poor substitute for tea, but my body believes it's caffeinated, and it's
    more fun that water.

    But no farther.

    How about . . .Pea? That sounds about right.

    Or, given the inablility of any establishment in the US to boil water: Teapid.

    But then, what difference does it make?

    You put ice and sugar in it.

    When they first started making the sweet tea at the McD's here it was really good. It got really bad over time. One time it did taste like soap but the flavor did not improve after that. The most recent tea I had tasted like fish. When I commented on it to my coworker she said she thought it tasted that was since she was eating a fish sandwich. I couldn't finish it, there is no reason for iced tea to taste like fish. Yeah, I don't think I'll be getting the iced tea at McD's anymore.

    Fish tea! Yes, what the hell is with that?

    I have gotten fish tea far too often.

    Filter your water, put it into the fridge that will cool it right below freezing. Drink the water. I promise you it will be as delicious as iced tea.

    The following hijack has been brought to you by sturmhauke, a fine purveyor of hijacks since time immemorial. Or possibly last week.

    I used to work at a McDonald's like a decade and a half ago. They still served soup when I started but stopped while I was there. Not enough people were buying it, and we ended up throwing out a bunch of soup from the electric warmers every couple of hours for food safety reasons. That said, there was the infamous zombie Big Mac incident... let's just say that a Big Mac left too long under a heat lamp gains unnatural powers and is an abomination unto the Lord.

    I don't know how to explain the continuing success of McDonald's. Unless you are a starving Ethiopian, why would you eat there? Burger King, Hardee's, Wendy's, etc. are much better, even if you want that kind of food. The only good thing McDonald's makes is their McGriddle, and even that isn't something I'd want more than once every six months or so.

    ETA: And that reminds me: Big Macs. Does anyone think these things are good? I had one last year because I realized that I'd never actually tried it before, so I gave it a shot. It was one of the worst burgers I have ever had.

    Coffee isn't bitter; what nonsense is that! At least, it's not when I'm through with it. Mmm, coffee with tons of honey in it...

    Naw McDonalds is as discusting as everybody in this thread describes. and yet, the mcdonalds always seems to have more drive through traffic than the other fast food joints.

    but we all know why this is. routine, recommendations, time, and marketing. This is the order. In truth the human species is exceptionally prone to falling into ruts of safety (good idear). it should be noted i'm drunk as fuck and still sounded smart.
