Dr Pepper isn't a Coca-Cola product, they probably aren't authorized to mix it with the other flavorings in the Freestyle machine.

It varies. Price aside, there are things that come up on the menu in America that I wish we had going on here.

Like breakfast.

Or that southern chicken sandwich.

Or that burger that was apparently like the Arch Deluxe without being the Arch Deluxe -- that one really pisses me off.

That's almost everything on the menu, though. Hot slop on a bun.

Hm, possible. But according to wiki Dr Pep is owned by Coca Cola in Europe.

Dr Pepper tastes like the inside of an arse so I only drink it a couple of times a week

Dr. Pepper has a really strong flavor even among other dark colas. Any added flavors would just be subsumed by its spicy darkness.

Hardee-har-har. ;P

Tomm told me it was called like the "Quarter Pounder Deluxe" or something, and had the same sauce and basic toppings. That's all I ever really wanted, but apparently it's gone in the States before I ever knew about it, and it never came here.

On a related note, of sorts, I was craving a McChicken, and I was going to get us dinner at the McDonald's in Walmart before we went home tonight. Had coupons and everything, and they closed up early -- less than five minutes before I and another guy got there -- because "business was slow." =(

On yet another note, I'm headed to Germany for a day or two soon, and I've looked up the McDonald's menu there -- just in case. Found a thing or two I'd like to try, and the McRib is a normal part of the menu, too!

Yeah, I snapped a photo of the poster for chocolate fries at McD's Japan. Not interested in trying them, but this is the kind of weird shit that gets people to line up. Like tonight I was going to go quick and easy and get one of those Egg-chee burgers again, but there was a massive line at around 6:30 PM.

One McD's Japan thing that I like, that they might do in the US as well but probably not, is they just straight up sell the filet o'fish on an english muffin as a breakfast item. It's like, the closest McD's Japan will get to a fast-food Japanese breakfast until they create a McGriddle with miso soup inside and use that instead of the english muffin.

I used to go to Arby's, Jimmy Johns, Taco Bell, etc. after long days of work, now I'm eating at home. Used to eat every dinner out.

The saddest thing is going to Taco Bell and being disappointed because the meal was worse than you expected.

I was thinking more like an empty taco shell, but that would be pretty unpalatable too.

McD's Japan is at it again!

This time they have a new, UNNAMED BURGER.

What's on this burger? Well, it's a bacon cheeseburger, assembled Big Mac style, with an onion sauce. The bottom bun has the burger, cheese, and onion sauce.

The middle and top buns contain the bacon, and... mashed potatoes.

Honestly, most Japanese food I see is like, insanely carb-loaded (Here's some rice. What should we put inside of it? Breaded, fried meat!) but this stuff goes over the top. I still kind of want to try it, though I think I'd rather just buy some potatoes and make mashed potatoes.

If he posts "yes" as the answer, expect McDonald's to pilot the McDedo by the end of the next quarter.

I tried it, and... the potatoes ruin it. Like it'd honestly be fine as just a regular bacon cheeseburger with that onion sauce (which is really good) but the mashed potatoes and big mac middle bun ruin it. It wound up being really bland.

I'm torn, depending on the onion sauce. Does it have actual onions in it? That would kill it for me. If it's just a flavored sauce, like Subway's Sweet Onion sauce, I'd be okay.

Not allergic, per se, but they do tend to make me retch and gag, so close enough. Peppers are another thing that really get to me, even by scent alone...

...except for like, a pizza with everything. The scent is like beautifully revolting somehow, but I can't get that stuff even near my mouth.

Either way, yeah, it sucks a lot. =(

I'm the same way with onions and yeah, it really cuts down on what I can eat at restaurants in the worst way.

Not really? I just don't like the texture (same with Broccoli/Brussels Sprouts), since I tend to gag when trying to eat any of those.

And celery.

I don't really miss stuff, I just hate the inconvenience (for myself and others) in trying to find stuff I can eat. Get into more ethnic foods, and it gets really difficult.

If it's just a texture issue, you can always use onion powder.

It is.

I have a friend who is allergic to onions and garlic and it is nearly impossible for him to find something at a restaurant that he can eat.

It feels like music without bass to me. But we all have our quirks (I don't really like most fruit), and a friend of mine carved himself a solid career in food journalism while hating both onions and cheese.
