LivingSocial.com and McDonald’s are selling a coupon booklet good for 5 Big Macs and 5 Large Fries for $13 – that’s $2.60 for each burger/fry combo. Over 200,000 sold already. Supposedly they want to sell a million vouchers like they did earlier this year with Whole Foods. Nutritional facts because I was curious:
Big Mac = 540 Calories, 29g Fat
Large French Fries = 500 Calories, 25g Fat
The means you’re getting 5,200 Calories for the bargain price of $13. Are Cheap Calories The Reason We’re Unhealthy? Perhaps, but I’m of the crowd that really doesn’t expect wholesome food when buying fried beef and fried potatoes. I think it’s quite possible to eat well and cheap, but frankly some people prefer the taste of fast food.
