Travels in the South

22 Mar

  Welcome friends to another edition of Travels in the South.  Today is being brought to you by daddy.  Recently McDonald’s launched a bigger Big Mac called the Grand Mac.  Now dad loves his Big Mac’s of any kind but he has been opting out of trying this because of eating clean.  Well this past weekend, he couldn’t help himself.  He had to try one and of course mom was there to interview him and take pictures – that’s my mom.  She didn’t try one or any of his french fries – go mom and your will power!

Now this is from the McDonald’s website:  “A regular Big Mac is two pure beef patties, Big Mac sauce, sandwiched between a sesame seed bun, American cheese, crisp lettuce, onions and pickles.”  And a regular Big Mac has 540 calories.

Now here is the description from McDonald’s website on the Grand Mac:  “Sink into 1/3 pound of real beef seasoned with salt & pepper sandwiched between a sesame seed bun.  All dressed with special sauce, crisp lettuce, onions, pickles and two slices of American cheese.”  And a Grand Mac has a whopping 860 calories!

Okay, a little more beef, an extra slice of cheese and 320 more calories.  And the pictures on television and on the McDonald’s website show there is a size difference and we all know that size matters, right?  So what did daddy think about the Grand Mac?

Daddy shrugged his shoulders at it.  The Grand Mac that he got did not look much bigger than a regular Big Mac.  It didn’t taste any different per say.  It was just okay.  In fact, if dad had to do it all over again, he said he would pass.  It just wasn’t that awesome.  So there you go – from the dad’s mouth.

    860 kcal – for a meal that leaves you hungry in 3, 2, 1 … I think I will pass, too.

    Maybe Dads getting used to clean eating and the Big Mac just doesn’t taste good as it used to.

      You might be on to something there. He sacrificed that week to get that burger. I don’t think he thought it was worth it at all. XOXO – Bacon

    Good to know. Wanted to try it. Will stick with the regular one. The small wasn’t too bad if you want to go smaller.

      The smaller one is just perfect … well my mom says. It’s kind of like the three little bears and the porridge when you think about it – snorts with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon

    Big Macs never liked me. Tasty as they are, something disagrees with me. But if you can eat them, limit how often.

      That’s the way mom feels. She wants her calories and not all at one sitting. XOXO – Bacon

    I used to be able to eat two Big Macs for lunch and stay skinny. Now I get fat just looking at it.

      OMP – snorts with laughter. You sound like my mom. She says she can look at the food commercials on television and her jeans scream “EAT A SALAD”. Too funny my friend. XOXO – Bacon

    Seeing that ginormous sandwich kind of made me gag. Too much everything…food, fat, tri-glycerides and probably stuff I can’t even begin to pronounce and certainly not worth all the extra calories.

      I agree. I would pass as well. My hub loves his hamburgers and had to try it. Afterwards, he said it really wasn’t worth it. I don’t think he will be doing that again anytime soon. XOXO – Bacon’s MOM


This piggy would love to snort with you :)
