I remember walking into McDonald’s when I was younger and I would be greeted by the amazing smell of McDonald’s fries. Nowadays it smells like a school canteen, but back then, when McDonald’s used to be good and the the food actually tasted nice It felt like a real treat. Especially after a hard day walking around shopping with your mum. it was a fantastic end to the day to have a Happy Meal.
Yes, Happy Meals and the toys that came with a them were really cool McDonald’s themed toys. You’d get McDonald’s racers and even food transformers. Now it’s always some movie tie-in or much worse like a boring book. I still remember that the restaurants used to have a dedicated children’s seating area with themed tables and chairs. Friends would have birthday parties and Ronald McDonald would make an appearance and he would be splashed over all the merchandise too. It was a time before they felt they needed to offer healthy options. You went McDonald’s for a burger, fries and shake not a salad! It’s because of this poor old Grimace had to go on diet. Those good old days are gone, and poor old Ronald has long disappeared because nobody likes creepy clowns any more. I miss those days!
