54 Utah McDonald's Giveaway & the New Happy Meal! **CLOSED**

Random.org has selected comment #27!
Congratulations, Lars!  Look for an email from me....

Have you heard about the new Happy Meal at McDonald's?

I attended the launch of the new meal with my nieces and other fellow bloggers in the McDonald's located in Herriman, Utah, which opened in April, 2011.






I'm impressed with the new changes.

Did you know that 88% of McDonald's customers are aware of the apple slices option, but only 11% actually choose the apple slices?

If the apple slices are included automatically in every meal, they are more likely to be eaten.

I like that.

Let's take a peek inside ...



Fries!! You have to eat your fries first.  It's a rule.  Cold fries don't taste as good.


I was whisked away to take a back tour of the kitchen.  What a treat!

Wow.  I was impressed with the quality and efficiency!  It was like watching a well choreographed dance, workers zipping here and there, making sure everything was hot and fresh.


McDonald's is making an effort to provide healthier options such as oatmeal, fruit parfaits, Premium salads and chicken sandwiches.



I enjoyed a Premium Grilled Chicken sandwich, apple slices and a drink for only 385 calories.  Yum!



Are you ready to try the lighter fare at McDonald's? 

Well, if you live in Utah, you can take your kids, your friends, AND their kids on a Special Play Date, courtesy of McDonald's Utah!

  11. I didn't even know they were changing the Happy Meals! Not sure how "happy" my 12-yo will be when he realizes they cut down on his fries, and his apples might be eaten by his mom or sister, but it's a step in the right direction health-wise!

  27. I think it's funny (strange) that other fast food advertises increasingly unhealthy options, while McDs gets the crazy press, and keeps working to offer fast food that's more recognizable as food and not so unhealthy. Thanks McDs!--Lars
