The other day after a long day from work I went to a 7-11 to buy sandwhich
some chips and a coke.

Well i settled in my car to enjoy my quick meal but when I took a drink of my coke
It was not Coke it was vanilla coke!
What the Hell.... the Coke company just spoiled my meal !

I grabbed a Coke can in a hurry but it was a vanilla Coke !

Don't those people at the Coke company know that it is imposible to improve on
Coke !

Coke already dominates the softdrink industry what more do they want !

The greedy bastards !

It's all about shelf space, and taking up as much as possible with all the Coke varieties.

I agree that the vanilla Coke is pretty nasty, but so is any vanilla soda, unless it's an ice cream soda

Reminds me of any time I go to a fast food drive-through. First they started giving me coke instead of Diet Coke (I know, heresy to you Coke lovers out there, but to me regular Coke tastes too sweet, all that sugar just makes me thirsty when I drink it).

So I started slamming the straw in th cup in a hurry and tasting it before they came back with my food.

Then they start messing with my sandwich. I ordered an Italian Chicken sandwich from BK, I get back a regular one. So now I make it a habit of opening up the sandwich wrap and peeking in there. But they got me there, too! One time instead of the sauce, they topped it with BBQ sauce (which looks like sauce) and cheese! (I like BBQ sauce, but for some reason that first bite tasted nasty!)

Another time at Mickey D's I order a 1/4 Pounder with Cheese, no ketchup. So what do I get in return? A 1/4 pounder with NOTHING BUT ketchup!

My wife calls it "the curse", because they screw up something in my meal at just about every restaurant I ever go to, whether fast food or $100 a person steak houses!

Lol, I feel better now, too!

Cheers,

John

John...

I worked at McDonald's for 3 months when I was 19... only job I've ever had... you REALLY don't want to know what they do when someone orders a grill (that's what they call a special order at McD)... if the worst you got was a lot of ketchup then you're lucky... I've seen BAD stuff go into grills (and you're gonna get that image next time you eat there...  blake)...

By the way, I got fired from that job... this was 1977 and a woman came into McD and said "I'm having a Big Mac attack!" (this was the slogan of the current ad campaign at the time) -- I looked at her and said "Lady, you can have a fit anywhere but not here"... 5 seconds later I was taped on the shoulder by a manager who asked me to go back to the office... there he informed me that he didn't feel I was McD material and that I'd probably never get to management -- I smiled, took of my hat and said "Thanks for doing me a favor, my life was never designed to be a McD manager, what a waste of a life!" (he didn't like that much)... I walked out and never looked back and I've never worked for anyone else again...

 Grin

Success!!!

I have the same Coke vs Vanilla dilemma with Miller beer.  I'm partial to the High Life, the regular miller.  But I can barely find it all of a sudden.  MGD, Lite, and this new one Chill are everywhere, and none of them compare to the champagne of beers.  Why do companies have to mess with a good thing and make a million different "improvements" over something that was perfect to begin with.  Remember "New Coke"?

Thanks for that one Tony,

I haven't even had a coffee from them for many many years.

I do remember wanting to pull off the road and take a nap after eating their Frankenfood burgers(buggers?)
Coinky-dinky too, the nightmares about Soilent Green stopped soon after as well.
Hmmm.
During high school I worked in a bakery.
Boy oh good 'n PLENTY of stories from that glorious place.
Lovingly referred to as the Roach Motel.
God I miss that place  Cry

Hey DShapiro

(Why do companies have to mess with a good thing )

Because they are greedy bastards trying to get every last drop of blood from their
loyal customers ! 

Much like the Internet Marketer. which is my joyfull mission in life.

(I can't believe this thread rose from the dead:-)

There's a YouTube video floating around of a year old fast food hamburger a customer had purchased, put in his coat pocket and forgot about all that time. (Copywriter Frank Kern interviewed the guy who made the video about it.)

The burger looked like a hamburger that was only an hour old!

Apparently, the fast food joints put plasticizers or sumthin' in the food that is all about looks and nothin' about you.

Bon appetit!

The best to you.

As a teenager I remember working for a week during summer vacation in a factory that made licorice.

Took me years before I could even smell the stuff after that week.

My main job was to man the shovel scooping the boiling licorice that over flowed onto the 100-yo factory floor back into the vats. Filthiest place I ever worked. Rat droppings, dead cockroaches, you name it... I used to sweep up at the start of every shift until the foreman chewed me out for wasting valuable time.

I lasted five days, then quit. I reported it to my Dad, who was a senior police officer at the time. He took it up with the local council's health department, who fired the health inspector for taking bribes from the licorice factory owner, and shut down the factory.

It went a little way to restoring my battered faith in local government, but nothing could restore my faith in licorice except time. I never worked in a food business again.

Tony,

Man, I would have probably yelled something far worse than that to her.   But, that's a dumb thing to get fired  over.   It makes you wonder how something like that can get someone fired but if you go into a store nowadays you'll see workers on their cell phones ignoring customers and everything else.

I'm skeptical about these claims of burgers that are several years old- smells like a hoax or hidden agenda.

I don't know about McD's, but I worked at Wendy's, and the burgers were made of ground beef that had never been frozen, same stuff you'd get at the supermarket. I've made the patties myself. I don't know what those burgers would look like after a few years, but it would be the same as a homemade burger. I'm also not sure what the point is of looking at food that is several years old. Who eats burgers that are years old?

If they're going to parade these old burgers, they should include a control to make it at least look somewhat scientific.

Coke (coca cola - heh heh) & chocolate chip cookies ... Breakfast Of Champions! Cheesy

In the morning Coke is my caffeine and it needs to be the "Real Thing"! No diet or other Coke flavors for me.


Have Fun!
