The other day the kids and I went through McDonald's to get them a little treat. I got them each an ice cream cone, and got myself their new Caramel Frappe. It is a blended coffee drink. I was actually quite excited, as I LOVE my Caramel Big Chill at Biggby, a local coffee shop... but thought it would be nice to have another option, since McDonald's is only a block away. :) When I got it, there was literally as much whip cream as there was drink. I thought it was odd... but thought it was probably a fluke.
So in the middle of a sewing frenzy, I needed a pick me up and ran up to McDonald's to get myself some coffee. This is what I recieved...
Now, I did ask for light whip cream after the last time. I didn't want to have a mountain of whip cream... so that is why it doesn't go to the top. But if I hadn't asked for light whip cream... there would be as much whip cream as coffee. Is this their way of telling me I drink too much coffee? lol I feel like it is false advertising. If you tell me I'm going to get a 16 oz coffee... you shouldn't fill it to 12 oz and fill it with something else. Honestly, for almost $4 I felt ripped off. For $4 I can get a larger one at Biggby, and WAY bigger on Wednesdays when I get a coupon for a dollar off! :) Anyway, I parked my car and went and asked if this was some sort of fluke. The girl replied that no, that is exactly how they were told to do it. Does this seem weird to anyone else? Am I being a brat? Talk to me! lol
p.s. Disclaimer... we are the McDonald's test market, so if you don't have this in your area yet, that is why!
