McCheese

Published September 18, 2009 - 3 Comments

McDonalds Double Cheeseburger contains 2 slices of cheese.  The McDouble contains only 1.One of my friends recently told me a little bit of interesting information.  If you order the Double cheeseburger from McDonalds, you will pay $1.69, yet if you ask for a McDouble, you will get the exact same burger except that it’s on the value picks menu, and costs $1.39, $0.30 less.   I couldn’t understand the logic of this, but hey… stranger things have been known to be true. So I did a little comparison shopping, and I think that I’ve come to the root of the conspiracy.  The McDouble is the exact same burger as the Double Cheeseburger, except that it has a single slice of cheese.  Is that enough to make up the $0.30 difference?  I don’t know.  I’ve tasted both of these, and I can’t tell the difference.  I can taste the cheese, but to be honest, it’s not like one was cheesier than the other.  So what’s the end game?  Are they going to phase out one burger?  Are we going to see other variations of the same burgers?  Will a McChicken without lettuce be called a McCluck, and costs $0.20 less?  We’ll just have to wait and see…
