Lo-Down on McDonald's

We stopped one hot day for an ice cream at McDonald's and found out that during August it is by one dessert get one free. So it was 59 cents for two cones!

Also in August (not sure if all locations are participating) is $1.00 large soft drinks and sweet tea. And from 4-9pm on Wednesdays and Fridays happy meals are $1.49.

I am not a frequenter of ole' Mickey's, but I thought those sounded like good deals.

Also, while there I noticed the nutrition chart on the back of the tray liners.

Healthiest Sandwich = Tie between a plain hamburger and the chipotle snack wrap (grilled) - 9 and 8 grams of fat respectively.

Healthiest Salad = Premium Ceasar Salad with Grilled Chicken - 6 grams of fat

Healthiest Dressing = Newman's lowfat balsamic vinaigrette - 3 grams of fat

Healthiest breakfast item = Plain egg mcmuffin - 12 grams of fat

Healthiest dessert = Apple dippers- 0 gram of fat add caramel dip .5 grams of fat.

BTW, the ice cream cones are reduced fat and 3.5 grams of fat each.

Now that you are in the know, try not to go too often!
