*sigh* Another fatty masturbation thread.
Put the fork DOWN OP.
R1, how could you hate it when the new flavor doesn't even come out til tomorrow? You're a liar. You've never tried it. Try it - it's quite refreshing!
Well judging by their regular milk shakes its going to suck. Why? Because they hardly use any milk in that shake. Its basically frothed up with air to sell you more. Let one site out over night and what what happens to the fill line.
R4, you really should try just eating your food instead of performing Mr. Wizard-like experiments with them. Geesh!
If McDonalds would post a video of concocting the shake in their chemical test kitchen, that would be worth watching. What strange substances are they adding this time?
It's a smoothie not a shake. Just sayin'
How ironic. I just finished drinking half a glass of pomegranate juice I'd made. It's a bit of work: banging the seeds into a strainer, then mashing the juice through, but I have it down to a fine art, and do it daily as it scours out the arteries.
The thought of some blue-dyed artificially flavoured McCrap pig-fat shake gives me the shudders.
How many calories, and what % from fat?
It's a SMOOTHIE
His milk shake brings all the g0ys to the yard,
And they're like, OP's a tard
Damn right, OP's a tard
I could teach you
But I have to charge
enough sugar to drop a rhino. go for it fatties!!!!
Love blueberries. Love pomegranate. But mixed?
Oh, fank you, McDonald's!
Bless ya, OP!
I use your straw and drink your milkshake!
[quote]Love blueberries. Love pomegranate. But mixed?
No worries, honey. I doubt either fruit can be found in it.
Fortunately, Blue No.1 and Red No.3 mix well.
Looks like it's mostly cheap pineapple juice. It can come with or without yogurt. Still it seems healthier than a traditional ice cream shake.
r3 calling me a liar because the flavor hasn't come out yet but can say it's 'refreshing'. it's McDonalds, which means it's diarrhea frosting on a shit cake, now whirled in a blender!!!
Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf does a blueberry-pomegranate "ice blended" drink that's pretty good. And I've also seen blueberry-pomegranate sorbet. So I think the flavors are complementary.
i wouldn't mind trying it once. I try everything at least once.
Hey, can anyone recommend a good cookie? Not soft baked. I gotta get some for a friend. He did me a favor and I know he loves cookies but i don't really eat them so i have no clue. In NYC thanks!
R23, this smoothie is basically that. It's not a milkshake. And I tried one, it tastes good. I doubt it's very healthy though.
This thread reminded me of this comic, which for some reason cracks me up:
Hey, I usually don't go for frozen drinks, but the cherry berry drink is damn good.
Remember, the promotion is only for May 21 to 24th.
It gave me the shits.
How about dudes, r28?
No thank you, I prefer my magic foods which will keep me healthy forever.
Solution to the dietary pollution:
Get out your blender.
Whirl ice and milk beverage of choice: dairy, almond, rice, etc. Yogurt is an option, too.
Add fruit of choice. Try a handful of blueberries.
Add sweetener, or omit, as you wish.
Best smoothie you will ever enjoy, and in less time than it takes to go to McDonalds and deal with the nonsense there. No factory farmed crap in your homemade smoothie unless you add it in.
r32 here. If your smoothie is too thick and the blender won't turn, just add some liquid, either more milk, water or juice.
With all this talk about fast food on DataLounge constantly, last night I was tired and I went to Burger King, for the first time in a very great while.
It was bad, mediocre at best.
I got a Whopper with cheese, a stacker cheeseburger off the dollar menu (mainly to try it), and a small order of fries, also off the value menu.
With tax, I paid $7.14 for … fast-food hamburgers!
The fries were cold, and the stacker was worth one or two bites before I tossed it.
The vegetables and and condiments in the Whopper were good and the burger was wrapped for convenient eating while driving, but the meat was somewhat off-putting. Both grainy and tough at the same time.
So, it'll be a few years more before I "Have It My Way" again.
