Satan's new name is McDonald's

Beelzebub has a new form, and it's iced mocha from McDonald's.

Sometimes I leave work so hungry I could take a bite out of my steering wheel or my own flesh. 90% of the time I can force myself home to make a cheap filling lunch. But today the hungry-shakes took over and I stopped to get the kids and myself some quick lunch at McDonalds.

I ordered one of their new iced coffee drinks because 1. it sounded good and 2. I could then mock their lame attempt to imitate quality coffee. But DAMN that thing was GOOD!!! Lots of strong coffee flavor with just a hint of chocolate and milk, icy cold, all the way I like it. I'm sure there was high fructose corn syrup in there somewhere, it's still a McDonald's product, but it was just really delicious.

And since we're confessing, I really do love Big Macs. I know they are a heart attack in a little paperboard box but they are just SO GOOD!!!

So get thee behind me Satan, and take McDonalds with you.

MC Hammer, I was waiting on someone to give me the verdict on those ice coffees! Starbucks is shutting down, closing up shops all cross the country, meanwhile, McDonald's finds a way to put them out of business even sooner than expected!

And girl don't even get me started on Big Macs! I can eat five of those things in one sitting!

I'm ashamed to admit it, but I LOVE the sugar free vanilla iced coffee at McDonalds. It is HUGE and much cheaper than anything I could get at Caribou and tasty, tasty, tasty.

I LOVE Big Macs too! I really do.

Satan, before you go, leave the recipe for the fries. Or help a brother out with a spare fryer, spuds, and oil. YUM.

Mmm, that sounds good. I've been wondering what those new coffee drinks were like. Uh, can someone watch my kids for a sec while I go run a quick errand?

That looks positively YUMMY! And I'm sure WAY cheaper than Starbucks!

I read somewhere that McDonalds' entry into fancy coffee is part of what's causing problems for Starbucks.

I like the idea of taking good coffee to the people.

McDonalds oughta pay you for this post.
Wish it were made from fair-trade coffee, tho.

They are good!!! I've been treating myself to them in these parts for about a year now. YUM YUM! And MG is right, you get a huge slurpin' glass full of it for just 99 cents, that's 1/3 the cost of a latte at my other favorite coffee stop!
