Former McDonald’s employee reveals ‘the real reason’ their straws are so big – it’s all about the taste
A former McDonald’s employee from Boston has set out to answer the taste-related questions of fast-food lovers.
27-year-old Michael Ryan shared his knowledge on social media after someone asked about his insider info.
In one video, a woman named Anna says:
“If you have worked for a large corporation like a chain of a restaurant or retail place, I want to hear all of the secrets that only employees would know.”
Michael answers her by saying:
“I worked at McDonald’s and I learned so much s***.
“You think that they’re just fast food and s*** but there’s so much science behind it.”
He revealed interesting facts related to the straws used at the restaurant chain.
“For example, your straw at McDonald’s is larger – do you know why it’s larger?” he goes on to say.
“Because it lets more carbonation hit your tongue and makes the soda taste better. That’s why it’s better at McDonald’s.”
Michael also revealed that the grilled chicken is injected with a salt-water mixture in order for it to remain fresh and tasty.
He also notes:
“McDonald’s actually commissions Coke for their own recipe of syrup, that’s why their coke has a little bit more sugar and a lot more flavour.
“Their ice cream machine is made from whole whipping cream and it’s cleaned once a week.”
Michael addedd that the chicken McNuggets are made by a company called Tyson foods.
Many people who saw the videos were surprised to learn about these secrets.
One person said:
“I knew the coke tasted different. McDonald’s coke is hands down the best beverage on planet Earth.”
“When I said coke I meant all their soda! They have a secret recipe for all the soda from Coke that enhances the flavour.”
