Back to the future of fast food?
Absurdly Driven looks at the world of business with a skeptical eye and a firmly rooted tongue in cheek.
What does $1 get you these days?
A tip from a Starbucks customer, if you’re lucky.
Who, though, cannot be riveted by the sudden return of the McDonald’s Dollar Menu?
This was traditionally a staple of the American diet. This was also traditionally not very good for you.
Hark, then, at the twists McDonald’s has inserted into its new Dollar Menu, which debuts immediately after you’ve completed your New Year’s sobering-up process.
So that’s January 4.
This Dollar Menu isn’t, well, just a Dollar Menu.
It’s a $1, $2, $3 Dollar Menu.
Let’s start (by scraping) at the bottom.
$1 will get you a Sausage Burrito, a McChicken sandwich, or a Cheeseburger. Or, of course, any soft drink.
(You try leaving a Sausage Burrito as a tip at your local Starbucks and see how that works for you.)
What about $2?
Well, I suppose it gets you two McChicken sandwiches.
