I've managed to end up with a mountain of about 10 free coffee cards bc by the time you've reached the window of the drive thru they just shove the chip and pin machine at you and you're on your way. They don't ask for the voucher and I'll have forgotten to hand it over so I just get a free coffee.

Has anyone tried the "fake McDonalds" products from Aldi yet?

The only one in our Aldi on sale is the big mac. I'm waiting on the McNuggets and Hash Browns. If they can do microwave fries and curry sauce like Maccies though I'll I'll all over that.

No need for the McNuggets for me, my local frozen food store were selling McNuggets and Spicy McNuggets in the freezer and I've still got a couple of packs left.

I went to Wendy's on opening day. 3 hour drive down, 2 hour wait outside.

It was a bloody good burger though, certainly leagues above McDonalds and BK, possibly at or above the level of Five Guys but obviously much better value.

Of course this is early days and the restaurant was clearly running with way more staff than they would usually, including loads from the states. The challenge is expanding at pace while maintaining standards.

That's what I missed about going to Wendy's in the 90s. Their burgers which are priced more at the premium McD's end taste a lot more premium than their rivals at the time. As you say, it's Five Guys on a budget.

It's the same range in both Iceland and Aldi, made by Snacksters.

Tried to order a hamburger at Burger King yesterday, only to be told they no longer have a Saver Menu because of Covid. "The only way to get a hamburger is to buy a kid's meal."

So... they have the burgers but selling one to me without fries and a Capri-Sun is somehow impossible. What a world!
