A young bobby I knew seemed to eat nothing but McDonalds. Died of a heart attack at work aged just 41 a few months back.Many years ago I indulged in McDonalds at least once a week. A friend of mine at work told me to try a plain burger from there with no mayo, pickle or the other goo added.
I did and the actual meat patties was as bland as could be. There was probably more taste in the polystyrene box in came in.
That was the end of my affair with fast food burger joints.
I agree with you that they're bland and tasteless. There seems to be a generational divide with older farts like me used to eating more home cooked food dont go for them, but the younger folk who eat more processed food seem happy to eat it.
