I love McDonalds. I try not to indulge in eating there as often as I used to. I still love it.

But their menu has grown significantly over the years, and I, like many, have thoughts.

There are so many ideas they could implement to shake things up.

Now I have discovered, we all have ideas.

Hopefully Ronald is listening.


RedditorAstroAwesome12345wanted to discuss what is missing from one of the world's greatest menus.

They asked:

"You are the CEO of McDonalds. What outrageous food item do you place on the menu?"

Bring back the ten cent hamburger Tuesday. That was one of my favorite specials ever.

Fried...

"I put the apple pies back into the fryer." ~ LockeWithMe

Hey Dog

"The McDog. A McDonald's hotdog. Only available for 1 hour, on February 29th." ~ TGOTR

"Burger King has a hot dog... They once seriously f**ked up my order and gave me one instead of whatever the hell I actually ordered. I live in Chicago... if I wanted a freaking hot dog, I would have gone across the street to Portillos. The freaking thing was even drowning in ketchup. What the hell." ~ absentmindedjwc

Bag It

"Not completely outrageous, but a big bag full of fresh fries for $10. Include a bowl separated into 4 sections for sauces." ~ baconpoutine89

"In the early 90s (maybe late 80s) when McDonalds still did the 'super size' sizes, you could order a cup of fries and it’d be a supersize cup full of fries. It was great." ~ AshlarKorith

Spice it Up

"Mcdouble Quesadilla." ~ BuckeyeBikeNHike

"I used to literally make these when I worked there. A couple of breakfast burrito tortillas, some shredded cheese from the salad mix, and a few pickle slices to taste; throw on the 10:1 side of the grill for about 30 seconds with the clam down." ~ Karunamon_LoL

"When I worked the overnight shift there a very long time ago, we actually made these all the time. They were honestly good af. If they offered it with the quarter pounder meat, I'd order one." ~ mtrkar

Cheers...

"McTini." ~ WoolaTheCalot

"Taco Bell cantina is a thing. McDonalds dive Bar sounds legit." ~ Worthyness

A McDonald's bar. What's the happy hour? I'll think about it.

"A tomato. That's it. Just a whole tomato." ~ WildForestBlood

McMystery...

"The Mc pizza." ~ Whys-tdk122

"Have you heard the investigative journalism program (or ijp) called Whatever Happened to Pizza At McDonalds where Brian Thompson asks the question 'Whatever happened to the pizza at McDonald’s?'” ~ Z_Murray33

"Yes it is a very good ijp indeed. It seems to still have a limited popularity despite Mr. Thompson's attempts to educate the public. Sadly, if you look in the comments above you will it incorrectly referred to as 'Mcpizza' In addition, another individual is claiming that the novelty McDonald's in Orlando, Fl serves pizza, when we of course know that it is not original recipe and should be considered noncanon." ~ LobotsBalls

McMystery

"Dude what were those things called from like 10 years ago? The snack things that were like… crispy chicken in a wrap with honey mustard, and different variations of that kind of thing. I would absolutely bring THAT back. Were they called snack wraps?" ~ iakonu_hale

"This is the only answer I wanted! I scream every day for snack wraps, grilled or fried. I lived by those things." ~ SpecificAmy

Come on Ron...

"I think about THE BREAKFAST BAGEL a lot. I don't buy their bull about a covid-impacted reduced menu. Sure for the first few months, I got it, but this? This is bullcrap. THE BREAKFAST BAGEL is the only BREAKFAST item I like. It might actually be my favorite thing from McDonalds full stop. It's not right that I've not tasted the sweet caress of that greasy little witch for almost 2 years. Pull your freaking crap together, Ronald." ~ RockMeDoctorZaius

Be Big

"Big Mac Fries. Fries loaded with everything you put on a Big Mac." ~ phattoes

Now I could get onboard with those fries and the bagel. Yum.

June is a happy and exciting month for the LGBTQ+ community, being Pride Month.

Where people can proudly celebrate who they are and who they love.

And the crowds at these events seem to only grow bigger every year, as more and more LGBTQ+ allies also partake in the celebration.

Some of these allies might be late to the party, as it were, owing to the fact that they once held homophobic views, and only recently became more educated and changed their minds.

Redditor aestheticbear was curious what exactly it was that led former homophobes to change their previous views, leading them to ask:

"Former homophobic people of Reddit: what happened that made you stop being homophobic?"

Everyone has unusual phobias.

Things which they simply can't bear the sight of, and are forced to turn away when they find themselves in the presence of it.

More often than not, these things are usually habits or behaviors which one normally wouldn't do in polite society.

But, have you ever been repulsed by something that the majority of people might consider "normal"?

Something that's just an everyday occurrence in life?

Redditor Allthelights011 was curious to learn what "normal" things fellow Reddit users were disgusted by, leading them to ask:

"What’s a completely normal thing you find disgusting?"

Chances are, you've been told to try new things ever since you were a little kid. I know I was.

Sometimes, certain activities or experiences seem crazy, and you don't even want to give them a chance.

This could be true of some things. For example, there is no reason to ingest tide pods.

Sometimes an activity or experience that seems crazy only seems that way because you haven't tried it yet.

I thought nothing good could come of mixing buttery popcorn with Swedish Fish, but now it's my favorite snack!

Redditor TheUnthinkableVids wanted to know about other things that seem crazy, but should be given a chance.

He asked:

"What’s a “don’t knock it till you try it” experience that you would weirdly recommend?"
