Double Cheeseburgerless Dollar Menu Spotted At McDonald's

You know it was coming and now it’s happened to reader Joe. Joe says that his local McDonald’s has cruelly taken away both the Double Cheeseburger and the McChicken sandwiches from the cheap-as-hell glory that is the Dollar Menu.

Here’s Joe’s reaction:

I’m a resident of Chicago’s northwest suburbs and have now ran into atleast 2 McDonald’s where the dollar menu no longer includes the Double Cheeseburger or McChicken Sandwich. Both of the items are now priced at $1.19. I was curious if anyone else has had this occur near them.

Personally, I’m mildly glad of it. My lack of self control in eating fast food was strictly for those two items. Now that they’ve raised the price, no way am I going to mentally justify eating that food.

What do you think? Will an extra few cents make a difference in your consumption of fast food?
