Fast Food Notes

McDonald's Cherry Pie was one of my favorite fast foods of the month.  At a local McDonald's, the pies were 2 for $1 and I bought 4 for $2.  But when I went to Meridian, Idaho McDonald's last week, the pies were .79 for 1 pie (same as the local McDonald's)  but 1.58 for 2 pies, so I said told the guy, I'll just have one.  I wanted to check it out further so I went to another McDonald's on the way home. It was the same as in Meridian:  there wasn't a special of 2 pies for a dollar.

Next, I went back to the local McDonald's, in Ontario, Oregon, and they still had 2 pies for a dollar, so I purchased the 2 pies and also some large fries.  And not because fries and pies rhyme.  I was hungry because I hadn't eaten much and wanted to eat fries. "The fries were a perfect golden color and the flavor was the best I've had in a long time. Great!" I just decided to quote my own notes.

I wrote about Burger Time in October 2012, but there was a problem because I couldn't upload the photos.  I went back there on Thursday and had another milkshake, again choosing the Huckleberry flavor.  They use a syrup to make that flavor shake.  It's a soft, smooth shake (no pieces or fruit), so it was exactly what my stomach needed. This is the Large size. 

Some snow is on the ground and perhaps some ice/slush is visible in the photo. I stayed inside the car and snapped this photo with the window open.  The photo was cropped on one side because the back of a sign was in it and would have taken away from what is important in the photo.  The drive-thru is not in the photo because a vehicle was there at the moment I took the photo.

McDonald's Cherry Pie tasted great on a cold day

Here are more photos from Sunday.  I ate this McDonald's Cherry Pie while it was very warm and it tasted great! I had another one a couple of hours later. It wasn't warm then but still very good. I went to McDonald's again, on Tuesday, and ate two more cherry pies.

I'd like to order one tropical beach, please

There's a lot of ice in the parking lot between Burger King and McDonald's on Sunday, January 20. I stopped to get a photo before I went over to McDonald's drive-thru. I can see the Burger King sign in the mirror. Can you?

McDonald's Cherry Pie: Hot, sweet, delicious

As I promised myself, I went to McDonald's on Sunday, and as it turned out I bought 4 Cherry Pies because they were 2 for $1 and she said I could get 4 for two dollars. I'm still good at the easy math, but don't know all the fast food definitions of "hot".

Now, before I go any further, this little "baked pie" really can be quite hot in temperature, so please be careful!  I had mine out for a minute or two, or heck I forget exactly how long but you understand I didn't bite right into it immediately.  That's because I'm careful and also usually take photos of my fast food, but not necessarily because I think it will slow down my fast food.  haha

I did handle with care and when I ate my first pie (in photo), I had waited until it was very warm, not hot. The cherry pie tasted very good and I liked it very much.

However, "hot" also is one way to describe what is going on in the artwork or image on the little pie box.  I guess it's another fast food definition to make a point and made me wish I had some of that hot stuff.

More photos will be posted.

Circling, craving fast food is not enough

I was circling Taco Bell yesterday morning and wishing I could eat one of their specials they show with pictures, but I still was not feeling up to eating any spicy food or much of any food food, as I was sick during the week starting last weekend. I ought to cover the last sentence with a thick patch of ice and snow.

Yesterday, there was ice on the streets and the parking lots, which of course isn't much fun at all, though I wanted to see what else is happening in fast food right now so I decided to drive around. Burger King has a special this month on chicken nuggets and I wrote this down from what I read on their sign which advertised 20 piece chicken nuggets for $4.29 and that sounds like a good deal.  I'm not sure I can eat that many or at least it wouldn't be a good idea.

I was having a problem with the pen running out of ink, and if my notes are wrong, blame the pen. No, I think my notes are right.  I have no idea what the prices are at other locations. Moving on to the next suspenseful scene, I drove some yards (and I'll measure it in yards because this month's the NFL playoffs) It was too darn cold and icy in the parking lot to get out and walk, not that I ever do. Not much more than a chicken nugget's throw, I mean a football's throw from Burger King is a McDonald's and I could see that cherry pie was advertised on their drive-thru menu... however, I didn't get into the drive-thru, therefore I don't know if it's a special on the small cherry pies I have come to love, especially when I'm alone (meaning no girlfriend). Actually, I don't eat those cherry pies often and didn't know I even had special feelings for them, but I'm trying to make some sort of point, I guess.  Well, I did wind up with a Jack in the Box strawberry shake and liked it.

Hmm...I don't know why but I'm craving the cherry pies again today and since today isn't yesterday, I just might get over there to McDonald's and get one or two or three, or more, and pass them around.
