  • Bit early for April Fools day.

  • How many tons of unrecyclable plastic crap are you generating? Fake smells are made from petroleum. So all this is looser ideas.
    I had been cutting back on my McD visits, and this may be the final straw.
    I love the earth & McD obviously does not, plus rewarding kids with toys has helped exerbacerate our current homeless situation. I am sick of the groups of homeless panhandling not only at the end of the drive throughs but also inside the stores.
    Please rethink your merchandising!

  • How about French fry scented candles?

    Frank Smith says:
  • Do they have one called ‘Garbage Fart’? Talk about a classic McD’s related ‘scent’…

    UCN says:
  • Eww. People hate how they smell after working in a fastfood restaurant so McDonald’s thought: “What if everyone could feel that way?”

    Liz says:
  • It is a shame that they make so many things smell like their food.
    How about they actually make FOOD. Food that tastes and smells good.
    Their burgers were good back in the 70’s when they put condiments on them.

    Bob says:
  • Is McDonald’s focused on its core?

    Monica G. Simmons says:
  • I can smell the greed!
