I'm not that mom. I mean, I try to be but most of the time I fail horribly. I buy organic, I look for ways to sneak veggies into my kids meals and we really try to stay away from sugars (not a lot of desserts in this house), but I have one weakness-I LOVE FAST FOOD. They say the first step to getting better is admitting you have a problem...so I guess I'm on the road to recovery, but not sure I wanna be on this ride.
Recently, McDonald's has been trying to set itself apart from the McDonald's of yesteryears. You know the McDonald's we all grew up on-happy meals, Big Macs and the hamburglar. First they started with adding healthier options to their menu like wraps, parfait and oatmeal. Then they pleasantly surprised us with their ALL DAY BREAKFAST and their McPick 2 menu. Mozzarella sticks at Mickey D's, really? Stop the insanity.
But now, wait for it, they are unveiling a brand new look. Check it out.
They are definitely going for a bolder more colorful, in your face look. I guess they need to grab the attention of all the young kale loving, juicing enthusiasts that are running around out there.
By the way, have you ever looked so trendy and hip going to grab McDonald's? I'm usually there in my sweats when i'm too lazy to cook or hitting up the drive thru after one of those rare mommy nights out after too many vodka tonics.
I do give them this, the chain will also begin to use recycled or" certified sustainable sources" by 2020. Now that is something I can get behind.
What do you think? Did McDonald's need a re-haul or is it just a desperate attempt to satisfy the young, indecisive consumer?
