Of all the things that were to be missed during the lockdown, many people were actually craving for a good ol’ Big Mac, which resulted in huge queues of cars when some of the McDonald’s restaurants drive-thrus reopened.
Without discussing whether it is healthy or not, it’s a fact that many people dearly love the fast-food giant (yes, I’m guilty too!), but would you consider it ‘cheating’ if your partner enjoyed a Big Mac or the tasty McNuggets without you? Well, it turns out that more than 1 in 10 adults would.
1,000 fast-food fans participated in a poll, and the results show that 1 in 20 people were desperate for a taste of Maccies after the restaurants were closed down amid the coronavirus outbreak, and they actually responded that they would break up with their significant other if they went for a sneaky drive-thru without them. To add to that, one in five responded that their first taste of a Big Mac after the lockdown was better than a pay rise, and 16 percent of loyal McDonald’s fans rated the feeling as being on a par with the birth of their first child. Yes, you read that right.
Almost 20 percent of the respondents felt happier tasting their first Big Mac after the lockdown than if their favorite sports team were to win their respective league, and the most missed occasion during lockdown was the morning Sausage & Egg McMuffin, followed by drive-thru family trips.
What amazed me the most, though, was that 46 percent of respondents claimed that they would rather give up booze than their favorite burger, and almost one in 10 would prefer to go without their cell phone if they could get their hands on a Big Mac. Yes, I know they’re good, but are they really THAT good?
McDonald’s restaurants will reopen their dine-in areas on July 22 across the U.K., except for in Wales. To add to that, the restaurants will take part in the Chancellor’s Eat Out to Help Out scheme, which offers 50 percent off dine-in bills, up to £10, on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays in August.
