After sharing the bill for his usual order, a diner criticized McDonald's for being "no longer affordable."
Customer Slams McDonald's As 'No Longer Affordable' After Sharing Bill For His Regular Order
Recently, a man expressed his surprise at what he considered a significant increase in McDonald's prices.
Christopher Olive uploaded a receipt from a recent Maccies order, which included a Smoky Double Quarter Pounder BLT burger, large fries, and Sprite, to TikTok and shared it with his 374,000 followers.
Olive was surprised to learn that the final cost was $16.10, despite the fact that a Smoky Double Quarter Pounder BLT burger isn't cheap.
"So I get there's a labor shortage, I get there are wage increases and a number of other things but... sixteen dollars?", the TikToker said.
"Sixteen dollars for a burger, a large fries, and a drink. It's just crazy," he added.
And it appears that the amount stunned other people as well.
"Five guy's prices at McDonald’s?!?", asked one user, to which Olive responded saying: "It’s crazy."
Another user added that this was precisely the reason they preferred to prepare meals at home rather than eat fast food, adding: "I make a lot more of my own food these days because of stuff like this."
Again, Olive replied to the comment agreeing, saying: "Exactly. I eat 90% of the food I cook and this really shocked me."
Others questioned the TikToker, claiming it was his fault for selecting the highest-priced item on the menu.
"Bc you got DOUBLE DELUXE BACON quarter pounder, literally the most expensive option on the entire menu," commented a social media user.
"Bro ordered the most expensive meal they have and acted surprised," another quipped.
The actual ones opted to give some advice and suggested the app as a feasible choice.
"Download the app. You can literally eat McDonald’s for under $6 every time," one user said.
Global fans of the fast food chain shared their personal stories, and it appears that the costs in other nations are insignificant to what Americans pay for their meals.
Is anyone actually shocked?
However, despite the fact that prices are generally growing in the United States due to the cost of living crisis, sixteen dollars still feels a little extravagant, doesn't it?
