Confessions of an occasional McDonalds visitor

Hi, my name is Neil, I’m 22 years old, and yesterday I ate my first Big Mac.

No really, it has taken me this long to get around to eating the burger that McDonalds are most famous for. It’s not that I’ve been deliberately avoiding Big Macs, it’s just that I’ve preferred other items on their menu, such as their McChicken Premiere, and McDonalds isn’t somewhere I really frequent anyway. In fact, I’d be surprised if I’ve eaten there more than 10 times in my life, and the same would be true for places like Burger King and KFC.

Did I like it? It wasn’t bad – I was quite hungry so on this occasion I appreciated the size but I’d usually go for something smaller.


  1. A double cheeseburger and small fries is the best. I don’t frequent McDonald’s either, but sometimes a giant greaseball excuse for food sounds a little appetizing.

  2. Euuuwww, I can think of nothing worse. I’d rather eat from a burger van at the football!

  3. I feel sick already.

  4. Hi, I totally agree with you, about eating at a burger bar at football, well I would I run one, called Webbers Catering. Happy Eating, Kyle
