McDonald’s Expanding Mozzarella Sticks Nationwide In 2016

McDonald’s Expanding Mozzarella Sticks Nationwide In 2016

A little over a year ago, we pondered the age-old question: Will mozzarella sticks ever be a McDonald’s Dollar Menu item? We received a partial answer this June when the Golden Arches began pushing the hot cheese on susceptible Wisconsinites via a test of the “Lovin’ Value Menu” – you know, because that only makes sense.

Check Which McDonald’s Restaurants Are Serving All-Day Hash Browns Before You Go

One thing that disappointed fans of McDonald’s breakfast after the chain expanded its availablility all day long is that not all restaurants offer hash browns all day. Hash Brown Finder is exactly what it sounds like: it flags McDonald’s locations and whether they serve hash browns all day or not.

Girl Claims McDonald’s In Wales Served Her A McFrog Wrap

A few years ago, when frogs and pieces of frogs began turning up in frozen vegetables all over the country, we came to refer to any unwanted animal or animal part found in one’s food as “free frogs.” The term literally came true in Wales last week. A 10-year-old girl says that she took a great big bite of frog in her wrap over the weekend, but McDonald’s claims that it’s “unlikely” that the frog was put in there along with the vegetables.
