Never enough Ketchup...

Have you ever wonder why.......



when you order McDicks take out, they NEVER give you enough ketchup packages!! I always have to ask for more. How many do you use per....say a reg fries? I use 5-6 packs...

yeah, I think it's just that packet ketchup sucks, If you sit down, the pump style is much more efficient, only use like 2 of those little ones. But if you drive thru or to-go or whatever, those silly little ones are never enough, I think 1 = 1 pump on the thing? or maybe even less

This is a lesson you learn from C-Lai's, always save them, and ask for them even when you're sitting down to eat so you can take them home.

HK McDonalds is the worst. They give you 1 packet, even for "super size", no matter what. And they will only ever give you one napkin, no matter how many people are there, and how much food is being ordered.

Isn't McDonald's ketchup made by Heinz? Just different recipe.


Nothing beats PC ketchup. It has zing.

It's like soy sauce. You can't beat Yamasa on sashimi. Kikkoman is too dark and Kimlan, nuff said.........

church's chicken is worst for me. I need tons of ketchup for each piece of chicken. And all they give is usually 4 or 5 packets for a 10 piece order.

That's why you can't go through drive through. Joe Pesci said it best in Lethal Weapon 2. Drive throughs like to fuck your stuff up, because by the time you notice, you are long gone.

Fuck McDick's ketchup or any other FF for that matter. The absolute best dipping for fries is the dipping that White Spot gives on their Sweet Potato Fries... Yummy!!!

Any1 here knows the recipe for it?

I dip my fries with BBQ sauce, ask for 3 every single time I'm there.
The BBQ sauces in europe, USA, carribean are different that Canada, not as good.

Wendy's is even worse, they don't give you any ketchup and sometimes spoons for your chile.

Why are places run by Asian folks so stingy on the napkins? The people in Tinseltown are now a big joke between my friends and I because they gave us one napkin for each of us with our orders. I swear, the lady was about to start screaming when we all walked up to ask for a decent number of napkins.

Its not just Asian food places. At McDonalds and Burger King I usually only get one napkin when I eat there.


What the fuck.
