  1. Wow I can't believe someone on YouTube actually said the name Where I grew up, Omaha Nebraska!

  2. Mcdonalds food is fake garbage and super unhealthy for you. Learn to eat real food and cook at home. Thats how you begin to love your body. Eating mcdonalds or any fast food is an act of self hatred.

  3. i'm not concerned with calories, i would get only a sandwich that i want, and some fries, i would want a happy meal because i collect toys, so would it work for that?

  4. Random but at around 7:00 you were talking about someone surviving off a chocolate milk shake
    I didn't do exactly that but when I was young I go serve burns and I spent a bit of time in hospital, I refused to eat anything but strawberry milk shakes from McDonald's for about a month.
    The doctors didn't really care cause i wasn't eating or drinking anything, not even water, so for short term it was OK.
    But once I was released from hospital I was ok, might have just been me being in there

  5. i saw the commercial for wendys and they said they had new fries, they look good in the commercial, but i like mcd's cheeseburgers because of the rehydrated onions on them , their chicken nuggets are good, they used to be great in the 80s so were the fries when they fried them in the lard or something like that. now they use ?vegetable oil or some substitute, not as tasty

  6. I’m so glad I ordered and have a 0.003% chance of winning the B price, and that I watched this and now know about it 😂

  7. Matpatt is turnning into a podcast because i dont even watch the video i just listen to in in the backround of my laptop

  8. As of today, gift cards can't be used on the McDonald's app, so you can't even stretch that mc gold card with the offers on the app.

  9. Matpat: Boring stuff “They have been sending this out for-“
    Me: Fast forwards ten seconds
    Matpat: “So if we add Skittles with McDonald’s food we get-“

  10. So the best way to get free food at McDonald's is to get the alternative prize of $50,000

  11. Food Theory idea: what would happy if you can only eat unhealthy food for the rest of your life like burgers and are they actually unhealthy
