Default Double Cheeseburger No Longer On Dollar Menu

http://abcnews.go.com/Business/story?id=5513875&page=1

Apparently, McDonald's wasn't satisfied with their profits already and decided to make even more.

The Double Cheeseburger, a dollar menu favorite, is being replaced by something else. There will be the option for getting a McDouble, which only has one slice of cheese, for $1.00. If you want a 2nd slice of cheese (Double Cheeseburger), it will cost $1.19.

Although you may think that McDonald's is overreacting, would you rather earn $0.19 more per burger or $0.19 less? Plus, the costs of everything is going up.

Personally, I don't really think the extra slice of cheese is going to convince me to buy the double cheeseburger instead. However, McDonald's will save a fortune on cheese, using half as much cheese per McDouble that is made.

The change will take effect December 1st.

This shows how bad the economy is getting, where even global fast food chains are desperate to make money wherever they can get it.

Ya, must have been a typo, although it technically means the same thing.

Fixed.

I think people should just eat less fast food in general. You save your health and your money.

This.

I cook most of the things I eat.

Haven't had McD's in a while, and my brother's usually the one to buy it because the lazyass can't feed himself.

I am just interested in what kind of an additional profit they will make off of this over the course of a year assuming they sell the same amount as this year.

Well we are in the top haha. All in all, there is no point to having fast food more than twice a week. If you can't cook for yourself, and you are at least old enough, then you have a problem.

Now don't get me wrong, I eat fast food as well, but it shouldn't be a factor where people would be complaining that the food item went up in price a bit. If you don't eat it so much, then you won't have a problem with your money.

Same here man, I haven't eaten McDonalds since early '07. Not since I saw Supersize Me. I didn't really like it that much anyways.

Also, Cook Islands at No.3. Never trust a skinny chef. XD
