I find that the food at almost every Micky D's I've ever been to tastes virtually the same: way too much grease and fat and salt, etc. WHICH IS WHY IT'S SO GOOD! If I wanted health food, I'd eat my lawn. I have never gone into McDonald's thinking how good I'll feel leaving. I pack a bottle of Tums, an extra shirt, a Tide to Go stick, and make sure to wear my stretchy pants. Then I enjoy living in a time and place where a dollar can get me juicy, fatty, yummy goodness in under 15 minutes. That's what life is all about.

It's hard to rate this based on the title of this listing and the available votes to choose from. I dislike this kind of food and haven't entered a fast food joint of any kind in years. I can't even stand being downwind from one of these places. I do remember eating at them and how immediately satisfying the food was. The food isn't designed to nourish you; it's designed to hit your pleasure centers as quickly as possible. Addicting? To some degree, in that, if you get The Jones, you know where you can get a fix. Here's the formula:

#1: Convenience. It takes little effort to find one.
#2: Whether it's breakfast, lunch, or dinner, the foods (buns, fillings, sauces, drinks and desserts) are saturated with the two substances most likely to get you to close your eyes and make that "hmmmmm" sound at first bite: High Fructose Corn Syrup (one of life's sweetest tastes) and hydrogenated oils (grease). Before you swallow the food, your pleasure centers are aroused. Kinda reminiscent of snorting coke.
#3: You're full.

I'm not gonna get behind the podium on this one, except to say that AFTER you swallow the glop, your body immediately goes into a defensive mode and treats the "food" the same way it would treat an infection. Oh, yah...ever hear of Alpha-Amylase? It's in there. It fucks with the body's ability to metabolize carbs into glucose (the stuff of life) and sends those carbs into storage as fat.

Think I was kidding about this "food" being saturated with HFCS and Hydrogenated oils?

I'm not sure how such unappetizing fare could become addictive, but perhaps they put heroin in the fries?

I think everyone knows that the ingredients in McDonalds foods as well as most other fast food joints are far from healthy. As long as you eat fast food in moderation and not every day you should be fine. Its our choice if we want to eat that type food or not. We dont care, as long as it tastes good and is affordable. The billion dollar restaurant franchise is still going strong. At least they have added more grilled chicken items and fruits and their salads are not terrible if your going for healthier type fast food. I don't suggest you eat there 3 times a week or anything but lots of things taste worse then the- Big Mac, Quarter Pounder, Egg McMuffin and the best tasting french fries in America, even though they may not be the most healthy. I typically go to McDonalds maybe once a month. As far as addicting goes, I gotta go with there french fries am I right?

McDonald's an addicting food?

When you find out what goes into those Chicken McNuggets, you'll quit cold turkey. Here's an hint: it doesn't contain a whole lot of chicken and plenty of artificial ingredients and preservatives. The French Fries are fried with old beef fat. And the burgers are another marvel of modern science, but not in a good way.

No doubt McDonald's has its followers, but I keep away from the fast food joints, for my own health!

I hate this muck, but its clearly addictive (as witness their sales) which given the amount of sugar in it (including the burgers) isn't surprising. 

Personally, I think its drunk food.  ie. something cheap to hold down the likker and that isn't going to kill you if it comes back up.

I work at a mcdonalds in Langley, BC (canada)
Our Resteraunt is great, my managers listen and treat us great! however our service is sometimes slow, but we have a great time, i havnt really encountered anybody showing up high or drunk. Our management team is fabulous, they deal with each and every employee the best they can.
I work in the back, so making the food, i see some coworkers making things sloppily, but when i make things i try and make them neat, and fresh.
I have worked at mcdonalds a total of 2 and half years, and love how they treat us. however i have friends that work at other mcdonalds and they hate it. i think it depends on who the management is.
As for eating mcdonalds, i love it, i believe the mcdonalds in canada are better, i was just at one in bellingham last week and my burger was nasty and old. I love eating mcdonalds other than that, sometimes i have good experiences and i've only had a few bad ones, but it hasnt stopped me from eating it, since its addicting.

i was sexually harassed there.. i am 19 now and when i was 17 i worked a louisville kentucky one. and i kept getting touched and talked to in a perverted way by a 18 and a 36 year old men. i complained to the manager and even writen a statement and the manager actually let the guys see the slips. and told them if they do it again they would be fired... so they guys confron tme about it and told the whole crew i was a prostitue on the side and i was trying to sell my services to them.

I was in high school full time and working 40-50 hour weeks.
they told me if i didnt work as much as they wanted me to they would fire me... and well i needed the money because my mom thought that once i turned 16 i needed to buy everything (including food) on my own.

the 36 year old still works there.

and a handicapped guy in the neighborhood was a child predater and they even let him work there

I am a manager at mcdonalds and I know what and how we run things. Our food is always fresh, our fries are always hot and our staff is always nice to everyone. its bitchy people like you that make me sick complaining about something every time you come into a store, lying saying you didnt get something when you know damn well you did. Just trying to get something for free. You guys always complain about something and say you hate mcdonalds and you never comming back and there you are the next day complaining about something again. The solution is simple. If you dont like mcdonalds, dont eat there. If you do like mcdonalds then there is a reason for it!!! DUH!!Get your minds right people!

I was just at a McDonalds in Coon Rapids ,mn. and I ordered 2 Mcdoubles with onion only, and a Mcchicken. Well when we got to the place where we were going to eat, I took the burger out of the wrapper and went to take a bite only to discover that all that there was between the bun was cheese, and onion, there was no meat. So I guess next time you go and order a burger you better make it clear that you would like the meat with it too.

  MCDONALDS BROKE HALF OF MY TOOTH OFF AND WILL NOT DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT. THEY ACT WITHOUT INTEGRITY AND DO NOT TAKE ACCOUNTABILITY FOR THEIR PRODUCTS AND WHAT'S IN THEM. THE BBB IS INVOLVED IN THIS AND I AM PROBABLY GOING TO HAVE TO HIRE AN ATTORNEY EVEN WITH ALL THE EVIDENCE I HAVE AND IN DOING EVERYTHING THEY REQUESTED I DO. THEIR SERVICE IS LACKING BEYOND WORDS AND WHEN YOU CAN'T TRUST WHAT YOU PUT IN THEIR MOUTH, WHETHER THEIR EMPLOYEES DROPPED IT, THE DAMAGE THE PRODUCT CAUSES TO THE CHEMISTRY OF YOUR BODY AND THE DAMAGE THE PRODUCT NOW CAUSES TO YOUR TEETH! IS THERE A NEGATIVE STAR RATING???

Not these days.  I can think of many more things I'd rather eat.  The fries (and a couple other menu items like the chicken strips and soft-serve ice cream) are usually pleasant to eat, but I wouldn't go so far as to call them "addicting".

Patronize this restaurant at your own risk because the corporate headquarters does nothing to help you if you are abused.
I was short changed at a McDonalds in Rocky River, Ohio on Center Ridge Rd. The female manager abused me and told me that I was a liar. I know that I was correct as I had a witness to the $20.00 bill that I gave as payment.

It's a peice of sausage,egg,and cheese lying between what is essentialy two maple syrup pancakes. You are an idiot ! Its cheep and good. Want health food? Go eat some goddamn fruit and vegetables.

the fries are cooked with trace amounts of beef fat, thats why they taste good. they are not vegetarian as most people believe. McDonalds represents all that is wrong with america. a culture based on car exaust and fat. a hamburgur contains meat from literally hundreds of different cows. there is little regard to the safety of the meat which contains trace amounts of fecal matter. not too mention the enormous possibillity for e coli and other food bourne pathogens. stop eating there!

I had one of the worst exp. at a McDonalds yesterday. I had ordered two meal deals at one of the Chicago airport McDonalds near the L1 gate. During my order I asked for extra ketchup. As I watched my order being filled, I noticed I only got 3 ketchups for my two orders. When I got my order I asked if I could get extra ketchup and was told I did get an extra ketchup. After explaining that I use 4-5 myself for my fries and sandwitch and that my wife also likes to use ketchup...and I would need 6-7 more I was told again, I "GOT" my extra ketchup already. An asst. mamager or manager must have heard the cashier raise her voice and came over, put 3 ketchups in my bag, gave it back to me and asked I move out of the way of the other customers. I left with my 6 total ketchups wondering why McDonalds has a policy of upsetting customers for $0.05 in ketchup? Please let me know how McDonalds will clear up this matter as my wife and I do like taking our two children out for McDonalds as a treat a few times/month.

Thank you,
James

I usually have enough will power to stay away from McDonalds. They have some things on their menu like their fries, which are absolutely addicting. However, I made the mistake one morning this fall to head to McDonalds in my car after missing breakfast. My normal McDonald's breakfast fare would be the Hotcakes, but its hard to eat those while driving, so I opted for the Steak Egg and Cheese Bagel. This one goes into my pantheon of addicting foods. I now stop by McDonalds several times each week on my commute to pick these up, and when I find myself driving home in the afternoon, I would stop at McDonalds if they still served breakfast food. This is my McDonald's weakness, and I'm pretty sure that most people have theirs too.

The burgers there taste like crap but the shakes, the fries, and the mc nuggets kick some serious derriere. However, I haven't had any McDs in several months (I haven't even had a full meal from there in years). Guess I can thank Morgan Spurlock for my apprehension to eat at McDs, now, huh (then again, he proved nothing by eating that crap for 30 days straight; everyone knows that stuff is bad for ya. It's like excessively drinking booze to prove that drinking leads to drunkeness).

McGriddles: I became violently ill after eating one. I am diabetic, and was not aware of the horrendous sugar content of this breakfast food. Perhaps a warning to sensitive people would help. My 8 year old daughter LOVES McGriddles more than any other McDonald's food, certainly due again to the high sugar content. I can't resist the steak/egg/cheese bagel. I know it's bad for me, but I just can't resist the taste! (Guilty pleasures) This stuff is no good for us, but the flavor is tough to resist!

Lots of junk food is full of salt, MSG and other crapola. I would suggest that McDonalds doesn't rely on this any more than any other chain but that its main addictive quality is due to the fact that it is convenient, cheap junk food; there's one on every corner and parents can feed the whole family for around $15. I buy their food from time to time, but I don't consider myself addicted in the least. I could just as easily pick a dozen other fast food places or none at all. People who are trying to make you believe this is actually addictive are just trying to spread the blame.

Ironically, the quality of McDonalds food is pretty low. It's only addicting because it contains a high amount of sodium (or salt), tricking the body into believing it's an excellent source of nutrition. UPDATE: Uhh, I accidentally put and where I meant to put or, honest!
