Top Ten Reasons Why McDonald's Is Bad


The Top Ten

1 You Have to Eat Their Food Fast Cause If You Don't It Tastes Like Garbage

Did you know they put rubber in their burgers - 2storm

Well I think their food is okay not the best though. Nothing beats a homemade burger. Their fries I like best out of all the fast food restaurants though.

Homemade fries are much better though. I like homemade burgers too.

No wonder its called fast food. - cosmo

Let me tell you a story...
One day I went to my local McDonald's to get a Big Mac, and guess what...?
The Big Mac was COLD, everything had fallen out and the fries were soggy. Since then, I've started eating at Wendy's and Burger King

2 Their Food

I admit some of their stuff is actually pretty good (like I actually like the fries), but a lot of is awful, like the burgers. The burgers contain pink slime, which is used as a preservative/filler. It affects the taste dramatically... I once ate a cheeseburger when I was little there and I ended up throwing it out. I've grown out of the chicken nuggets because I realized how bad they tasted, and now I eat a chicken sandwich or a wrap whenever we're on the road and grab some. - Turkeyasylum

OK, I must confess I sometimes go to McDonalds. But here are my complaints about their food...

Burgers: They are smushed down and it looks like someone stepped on them.

Drinks: The drinks are OK but I've heard if you look up into the tubes there is mold...

Fries: Soggy and they are too thin.

Chicken Nuggets: They are also fine but that picture of the pink goop made me not get them anymore. Also one time my brother ordered them, and they seriously just gave him a box with a fry wrapper and a small burger patty inside. What the hell? - SammySpore

I only eat McDonalds when I'm driving to vacation, and if I don't eat there it's another 2 hours of no food, the burgers are sloppy, the chicken tastes like rubber and the French fries taste like wood - ToptenPizza

The guts and eyeballs and stuff.

3 They Say They're Healthy When It's Really Bad for You

This is presicley why I don't eat McDonald's. Plus, my dad told me about a McDonald's commercial a while ago that said this: "McDonald's chicken nuggets are now made with real meat." Here's my question: If they are "now" made with real meat, what the heck was in them before? It really just makes me uneasy thinking about it. - RockFashionista

They say in the commercials that a goat got strong from earring apples milk and fake chicken! Who wants to eat apples milk and fake chicken? And how will you get healthy from it?!

This whole health food movement is nothing but annoying. Even fast food restaurants are trying to be healthy. Face it McDonald's, there's no way to make a fast food restaurant that serves burgers healthy! - Turkeyasylum

It’s just scary. My cousins loved it before I told them what was in it. They had no idea whatsoever.

4 They Don't Use Organic Meat

They torture chicks and calves, spray chemicals in them, make them grow super fat and kill them. Your gonna get fat, because chemicals! Also McDonald's could give you cancer: it's true

No wonder more people now a days are getting stuff like cancer and stuff

They say '100% pure beef'. They're sneaky with that. The company that makes their beef is named 100% pure beef, so they can add whatever they want.

They use raw fish meat! EW! - RootBeerFan

5 Their Apples Have Bad Chemicals In Them

I have ate one of the apples and I'm not dead I ate half of the apple waited a MONTH for it to rot and guess what NOTHING something strange and I found out about the chemicals

I remember one time their apples were banned because they had something in them. Thank goodness they give you a choice of cuties or gogurt or the nasty apples - Toptenner106

That why there apples never turn brown. They use chemicals that are really bad.
Maybe this is the reason some people end up in the Hospital. - nintendofan126

Everything has chemicals!

6 Their Toys Are Cheap Plastic

Agree. Yesterday, my sister wanted a minions toy. But they were all out of minions toys and gave her a cheap Pokemon toy. It was really useless. I mean, seriously McDonald's! That toy was probably made back in 2013, and they just use hand-me downs! You stink, McDonald's.

One time an 8 year old girl got a PIPE AND A CIGAR WHAT THE HECK that's not right and that thought gives me nightmares

I once got a Hot wheels toy in my Happy Meal and it was junk! - michaelthecritic

Those toys are sick

9 It's Makes So Many People Fat

You can like or dislike McDonald's, it is up to you, but people make themselves fat.

It really depends on if you eat it occasionally or everyday three times + a day. I've eaten there and not got fat. Really anything can make you fat.

But yea, the calories with their meals and all will make you get fatter faster than anything else =(

People have the choice to go to McDonald's. Blame McDonald's all you want, it was you that made yourself fat.

I have done there 50 times this year. Have not gained a single pound for the last year

One time, I almost peed in my pants so my mom brought me to McDonald's bathroom and there was sh words smeared with poop, vomit, dirt it's gross my mom drove home and I took shower

The only thing I DO like at McDonald's is their french fries. Plus, I like the ones at Wendy's, Five Guys, etc. - Stazemar000

13 They Get You the Wrong Order

Once my sister got a burger and fries and ended up getting a big box of pickles - 2storm

I got an order of a hamburger with just ketchup and extra onions instead of cheese and no onions once.

I asked for no apples and I wanted a toy for me, since I'm a boy, I got apples and a girl toy. Trolling employees... - TeamRocket747

When my brother wants cheeseburger without pickles and onions, they give him cheeseburgers with the pickles and onions.

17 The Food Gives You Indigestion

Whenever I eat a McDonalds, after 10 minutes, I have to go the bathroom so badly.

Mcdonalds also gives you Cancer! - RootBeerFan

There milkshakes make me throwup

18 Takes Forever to Get Food

In line for 10 minutes, moved 2 spots

Thought it was spossuds to be fast food


19 They Always Get Your Order Wrong
20 They Put Too Much Sugar in Salads

Sugar in a healthy vegetable? Sad.

Whats wrong with heathy vegtibles mcdonads - thunderclanrocks

21 Some of Them Have Bugs Inside

In our school lunch we found an earwig in the lettuce!

My little brother had a grass hopper in his burger! YUCK! - RootBeerFan

Once my sister found a smushed cricket on one of the nuggets


22 Food's Good in Commercials, Bad in Reality

McDonald's commercials are the big LIES of fast food.

The salads have so much sugar in it: WHY? The burgers are flat. Ew. The eggs are stinky. Yuck

This is 1 reason I don't go to McDonalds I mean seriously. There was a commercial for a Egg Mcmuffin. The funny part is that it made me for Subway sandwiches but I tried it anyway. The actual thing was nothing compared to what was in the commercial. The mcmuffin was soggy, the egg was goopy, the cheese was goopy and the chicken was disgueting.

One time my little brother wanted a big mac so he went to mcdonalds! and guess what? THE BIG MAC WAS WET AND SOGGY AND RAW! DUN DUN DUUN! - RootBeerFan

23 They Only Care About Milk and Apples

The only reason why they care about them: they have their own mascot on them.

The apples have chemicals in them so they are neve brown, and the milk is always chunky

When they replaced the happy meal with milk and apples, and put those stupid goat commercials on T.V., what the hell were they thinking?

Every single Happy Meal commercial-- They always say "goodness of apples and milk". They say it's healthy for you, but I doubt it

They never say anything about the Chicken McNuggets and the Fries. Oh, speaking of nuggets... Why do they have to put them in every single Happy Meal commercial? Is a hamburger or a cheeseburger too much for the children? I don't know - Stazemar000

24 They Steal Toys from Burger King

A shark tale jellyfish was sold at burger king. McDonald's, unfortunately, stole it an called a Finding Nemo jellyfish. - Officialpen

I hate McDonald's. They steal from good reasterants but they can't make. Good food with no poison?

25 The Drinks Taste Like Toothpaste

Don't judge, but I like the taste of toothpaste - TeamRocket747

26 Some Foods Can Make You Fart a Lot and Give You Diarrhea
27 It's Too Expensive

false - Trollsfan536

28 They Are Haraam (Impure) for Muslims

Hmm... That's right! Most of McD food might not list as HALAL.

29 Stinks Like the Sewers

The stench is so bad that it makes you think that you are in the Sewers or the Lavatory room. How can people and children even go there?

It stinks so bad I puked

30 The Chicken Nuggets are Made with Rubber
31 The New Happy Meal Boxes with Faces are Nonsensical
32 The Ice Cream Machine is Always Broken
33 They are Not Peanut Free Anymore
