    Well that lady mainly wanted a refund which McDonalds wouldn't give her... It wasn't really that they refused to give her nuggets. ... if it was, then it would be ridiculous.

    I went to a "related" article:
    Calories on the menu in New York restaurants - Telegraph

    And totally agree actually! I WANT to see some general calorie advice when I'm out and about! I want to make good choices about what I'm eating at a restaurant or cafe. I wish they'd start introducing this in England.

    And Arnold Schwarznegger is THE man!

    Calories and carbs in restaurants would be great Minerva.

    I totally agree.

    Calories in restaurants would be fab. Bet they'll never do carbs though....well, not unless they decide to reveal everything.

    Always wondered why they don't put carb amount on front of packs, like they often do with cals. You often get Cals, Protein, Fat...and that's it. Have to look at the back for carbs :rolleyes:

    BTW, did you hear about the lady who phoned 999 because she couldn't find her glasses. D'oh

    ROFL! Of course not! :D


    They do have the "traffic light" things on front of packets for fats, sugars, carbs, calories now though which are nice to see. :)
    Still... will be a blessing to see that in restaurants.. I went on the McDonald's page a while ago to find out nutrition information and such out of curiousity, it's actually really quite hard to navigate! And you have to read it properly a lot of the time to get to the bottom of the so called "meal" .... disgusting.

    I did! Stupid woman but then its no worse than the muppets who go shopping (esp near Xmas) and phone 999 because they cant get out of the car park due to the volume of traffic. When those calls get passed to us in the control room I always phone back and ask exactly what on earth they propose the police do about it :rolleyes:
