It's time to come clean about your fast food obsession – we all know McDonald's is your favorite. It's okay to admit it! Even if you don't eat it often, you can't pretend that their french fries are not little potato slices of heaven. Don't even get me started on their McFlurries. It's basically joy served with a spoon.
Breakfast time at McDonald's has always been a classic, with those delicious McGriddles and Hot Cakes covered in their golden syrup. But recently, people have been sleeping on their hash browns and other famous breakfast options. So McDonald's has found a solution and it involves two of my favorite things: a deep fryer and lots of sugar.
Donut sticks are the newest addition to their breakfast menu, and it's causing some buzz online. McDonald's is hoping to draw attention back to the breakfast menu and remind everyone that in fact, they are more than their Big Macs and french fries.
We're always lovin' it.
I would do just about anything for their fries.
McDonald's cravings can hit you at any moment.

Breakfast was getting ghosted.
