McD Double Cheeseburger horror. Sat, 11/29/08 9:45 PM (permalink)
They are now charging $1.19 for a double cheeseburger. I can see this price going up fast now that it's off the dollar menu. No more McD's for me.

    Get ready for a bigger change when they stop putting on the extra slice of cheese.

    I participate in a survey group and this quarters questions were anonamousely geared around the 1$ value menus.

    One of the questions was

    "Would you mind if a restaurant only put one slice of cheese on their double cheeseburger?"

    Hmmmmmm

            It is called the McDouble(R). I had one last Wednesday. Not bad for 99 cents.

                Oh well. No 'real' cheese involved... We can relax now.

                  McDonald's has a choice not to raise prices when their costs increase? They can do 1 of 2 things. Reduce the amount of the product to maintain price OR increase price and maintain amount of product. Just pull a box of cereal off the shelf and see this game in action all the time.

                    They're still selling the double cheese around here for a buck, but McDOnald's recently said it was increasing the price and cuting the amount of cheese in half.

                        It may hard to believe this, but I have very reliable sources that tell me the double-cheeseburger will be capped at $1.19 for a while. The franchisees were never pleased with $1, because it is a lost leader for them. I believe you can still get a single cheese double cheeseburger for a buck, which is a hell of a deal if you like them.

                          In price comparison, a tiny little White Castle w/cheese is $.79.

                          If the worst thing I find out today, is that Mc Donalds is taking a slice of cheese off a Mc Double, it is a very good day.

                              Hey, I just stopped at Chateau Blanc today and the cheeseburgers were 84 cents each. 5 cents more than in NJ???

                              Oh the horror!

                              Maybe I got a few more onions for that 5 cents.

                                Perhaps they were using bottled water instead of tap water for the steaming process?

                                      Just remember, it is always "free" to come to NJ, but it will cost you at least $8 in tolls to escape NJ. That means plenty of White Castles, and copious amounts of gas!!!

                                        Around here, "a while" is already up! Double Cheeseburgers are $1.29.

                                            Prices are going up at McDonald's on Wednesday in SW PA, anywhere between 10 and 30 cents.

                                            One of the chicken sandwich meals will be over $7.00.

                                              One of the chicken sandwich meals will be over $7.00.

                                              And that's why I now skip lunches when I'm working away from home.

                                                I'm just curious...for those who are shocked by the price going up...do you go to ANY restaurant that hasn't raised its prices in almost five years on something? At my (former) local pub, you cannot get out the door for under ten dollars to eat a burger and fries. Said burger comes in a frozen pre-formed patty, is served on a substandard bun, and is really not much larger than a McDonald's double cheese. Oh yeah...and they charge 50 cents for a slice of cheese if you want to add it.

                                                  I won't miss the double cheeseburger too much --- the McDouble will do for me when I want something cheap and fast. I agree that it's getting costly to dine out, even at fast food restaurants. Cooking at home rules.

                                                    They increased the price of the double cheesburger to $1.19, but brought out a McDouble for $1.00 which is the same, except it has one, not two slices of their cheese product. Since I remove the cheese, it's just one less slice I have to toss. It's hard to be $3.24 for quick lunch.

                                                      Just ask for one with no cheese, if you don't like it. They'll accommodate you.
