When it comes to fast food, there's one brand that trumps them all. McDonald's, in spite of a market full of competition, really does reign supreme when it comes to food that's instantly satisfying (though potentially a little regrettable down the line).
And there's one thing McDonald's is perhaps even better known for than the food - the iconic logo. Which makes the fact they changed it completely all the more shocking to the internet ...
When it comes to fast food, McDonald's reigns supreme.It was founded in 1940 in San Bernadino, California, and has really only gone from strength to strength since.
And there's a good reason for their success.McDonald's has a menu absolutely filled with delicious items - truly, there's something for everyone at the golden arches.
But for many, there's one menu item that stands out.The Happy Meal is small, but perfectly formed - designed for kids, they offer those in need of a smaller snack the perfect light bite.
But there's another big advantage to the Happy Meal.Alongside a main menu item, side, and drink, they also come with an added bonus - a free toy!
Sure, they're not always the highest of quality.But they do add a hint of much-needed fun to a meal. Over the years, certain limited edition toys have turned into coveted collectors items.
There's just one problem.In recent years, it seems as though the quality of the toys has been on a steady decline. Maybe it's nostalgia, or maybe they really aren't as great as they used to be?
Remember these classics?Collecting McDonald's toys was, for many of us, a cornerstone of childhood. And when the toys were this great, it was hard not to get obsessed.
In fact, last year they gave us some very exciting news.McDonald's finally listened to the concerns of customers - and came up with an incredible solution.
Yep, that's right.
via: YouTubeThey brought back some of the best toys from the Happy Meals of days gone by.
Take a look.
via: YouTubeIt's clear they put a lot of thought into the toys they chose, with many fan favorites to choose from. Did you see your best-loved amongst the options?
Some fan faves were featured.Like the Hamburglar, who was back in the form of a small action figure. We'd missed him!
But that wasn't even the most exciting.There was also a Furby return, which we couldn't have been more pleased about.
And McDonald's customers were feeling thrilled.
@McDonalds Unironically, unapologetically exited for this.— Eric Stivala (@Eric Stivala)1572570360.0
And there's one group who were particularly enthralled.
@McDonalds OMG! How many happy meals can I eat in that short amount of time? Must add to my 80s collection! https://t.co/j8kYnoOaAc— Laura (@Laura)1572577053.0
But Mcdonald's latest move has been even less well-received.In fact, it seems they've made a bit of an online blunder.
The world is currently in the midst of a medical crisis.
And McDonald's' response?
via: FacebookThey separated their iconic golden arches logo to demonstrate the importance of social distancing.
And while some were pleased with the message ...
Apart we’re safe. @McDonalds changed their their logo to promote social distancing. Clever. https://t.co/a4njft9LcO— غَزَلْ♔ (@غَزَلْ♔)1584732553.0
Most had quite a different response.
Fuckers pay a design agency for this dumb gimmick, but lay off their own staff, don't they? https://t.co/zx8kSZFv5g— MirusGris (@MirusGris)1585053431.0
Some felt angry.
I don’t want your cute logo play McDonalds. I want you offering a million free meals to those in need. I want you t… https://t.co/32lkzi8n41— Laurel Stark Akman (@Laurel Stark Akman)1584729558.0
It's clearly not the response they were hoping for.
