WASHINGTON, November 1, 2017 – In an online forum, several past and present McDonald’s employees reveal the one item customers should avoid purchasing if they value their taste buds, according to the Sun.
In a Reddit online forum, even though this dish is probably one of the most popular on the menu, these restaurant workers reveal their reasons why it should be avoided and see if you agree.
Don’t eat this at McDonald’s
When you stroll into a McDonald’s restaurant your eyes typically scan typically quickly over the many tasty morsels that are on the menu. Yet, according to the forum respondents, the number one item your taste buds should not be salivating over is the fish filet sandwich.
Why not you may ask, especially since it is probably one of the menu selections you probably never regard as problematic. Yet, one Reddit forum respondent stated, when he worked for McDonald’s three years ago he claimed,
“I can promise you that filet of fish is not fresh by any stretch of the imagination,” reported the Sun.
Others chimed in and suggested, that even though the highly successful fast-food chain is a favorite for millions around the nation and the world, this item may end up leaving a bad taste in the customer’s mouth.
McDonald’s: How fresh is fresh?
In a multi-billion-dollar restaurant enterprise, do customers truly believe that the Filet-O-Fish sandwich they order is really freshly prepared and should they care? One McDonald’s customer defended the restaurant and claimed that the Filet-O-Fish meal was his favorite. He said: “If you’re going to serve me a square piece of fish that tastes the exact same whether I order it in Denver or the south of France, I am under no assumption that it is by any means fresh,” according to the Sun.
So, if you are so inclined to order the Filet-O-Fish meal, then one of the Reddit forum participants did have a solution if you seek freshness.
He advised, “At McDonald’s just say you want a fish filet cooked to order, even if you have to wait five minutes longer for your order.” He added, “It will be “worth it compared to the filet that has been in the heated cabinet for hours,” reported the Sun.
