We didn’t know how lucky we were.
McDonald’s customers took to Twitter this week to express disappointment after the fast-food chain raised its ” McPick 2” menu prices.
Before the change, consumers could choose between a double cheeseburger, mozzarella sticks, small french fries or McChicken sandwich—any two of which cost $2. Now, the McPick 2 menu has evolved to include chicken McNuggets, Filet-O-Fish and a Quarter Pounder with Cheese. There’s a catch though—the damage on two of these “higher value” items is $5.
This shift is comparable in nature to putting items on the dollar menu that cost more than a dollar, which McDonald’s did last year.
Plenty of Twitter users complained about the high price point:
Words can’t describe how disappointed I am about the discontinued McPick2
