It seems that every time a new McDonald’s commercial comes on television the question inevitably is “Does McDonald’s sell Ice cream?” There are many different versions of the famous hamburger condiment and it’s not hard to see why. Everyone loves ice cream, especially kids, and when you think about it, the original fast food restaurant created the most successful dessert of all time, ice cream parlor right there on Main Street in New York. In fact, the first restaurant probably started selling ice cream when they opened that original window on Broadway and Jay Street in 1900.
The ice cream menu at the restaurants is as varied as its food selection and each Sunday morning the ice cream van returns to the ice cream line and remains there all day. People have always been attracted by the delicious smells and flavors of ice cream and now this popular food item is starting to make its way back into the classroom where children are preparing their favorite menu items. This is due to the increased popularity of both the fast food giant and of the popular television series “Degrassler” for which a long-running episode was once filmed. And now more schools are starting to take notice of the healthy aspects of this popular American snack.
A lot of the frozen treats that McDonald’s sells are actually considered diet foods. For example, the French fries that come in a golden packet are high in fats and sodium. However, there is a wonderful lightening option in the form of the Big Mac and it is available on a limited breakfast menu. It is actually considered healthier than an actual Mc Meal because it comes in a reduced calorie version. You can order it with a lower amount of cheese and a reduced amount of fat or you can just choose to have the regular version of the burger. Either way, you can enjoy a great meal without having to worry about the high levels of cholesterol associated with heavy meals.
Another thing that you may want to consider when thinking about what foods to bring home from the store is a bag of Mc Donalds Chunky Noodle Soup. I had the pleasure of dining at one of my local restaurants a couple of weeks ago and the hostess came out to greet us and asked if we would like some. She explained that it was a lunch time favorite and it is also a vegetarian option. As it turns out, the restaurant sells small packets of the soup at most of their locations and they even have them frozen. I was able to grab a few and the waiter told me they were only available during the week but I was able to have a delicious hot bowl of noodle soup for dinner that night.
The local elementary school lunch menu prices are not cheap either. For a large dinner many times, a family will have to spend more than ten dollars just to get a moderate size serving of pasta. If you are in that kind of situation, you might want to check out the many different entrees that the restaurant offers. They do serve an assortment of chicken entrees, lasagna, steak and seafood selections. For people who are looking to save money, they have an abundance of entrees that cost less than ten dollars each.
If you are trying to decide which restaurant that you want to go to on your next trip to the grocery store or you are looking for a fast healthy meal to bring home to your family, you should definitely check out the various restaurant options that the McDonald’s corporation has to offer. You can find delicious meals both in the regular restaurant as well as in the various breakfast, lunch and dinner menu as well as the Mcdonalds corporate entrees. As with any restaurant choice, you want to make sure that you choose an entree that fits into the diet of the entire family or else it will be a disaster. Fortunately, they do have an array of different options so you will be able to find something that satisfies everyone.
