We (both my son and myself) seldom eat McD, however we are patron of their playground. Normally I would buy 1 coffee and 1 sundae cone just so not to feel guilty of using their play area. Every time, I will also ask the counter, you know in other countries, there is Mc Cafe. When you are opening that line of food. You should know why I am asking ;)
..coming back. So today, we decided to have a meal at McD. 1 Happy Meal set for my son because its a toy car now on offer. For me, knowing I cant finish a complete meal, I decided to order ala-carte. The cashier rang RM14. Immediately that caught me thinking..is the ala-carte RM7??? and THEN, before I realized, I cannot change the order as I have paid and rushed off. As I was in the car, another item struck me. Lunch/Dinner Meal starts at RM5.95 (plus tax RM6.30) and I can get Burger+Fries and even a drink. Oh my my...
FYI: I paid RM6.10 for the Fish Fillet AlaCarte. If I ordered Fish Fillet Lunch/Dinner meal, I would have paid RM7.35. (rm1.25 difference for fries and a drink)
Happy Meal: rm8.10
AlaCarte Fillet: RM6.10
Would you order less so not to waste? or would you order what is money worth and give the balance food to others? I am sure 99% of you would buy the complete meal right ;)
Another thing I would like to highlight.
1 Happy Meal set of Nuggets (4 pieces), Small Fries, Small Drink and 1 toy cost RM8.10
1 Set Lunch/Dinner Nugget Meal (6 pieces), Large Fries, Medium Drink only cost RM7.35 (only disadvantage, no toy, but more food)
Happy Meal Set - Nuggets
Mc Value Lunch/Dinner Nuggets
Does it make business sense? SURE LA for those parents with young kids. But now, I will be smarter. I dont want those China-made toys anymore!!!!
