On a cold windy day here in Austin, I attended the Go Gurt Happy Meal Launch Party.
We were greeted by the franchise owner, Delmy Ustariz and a local dietitian, Katy Hall.
Katy was on hand to answer all of our questions about healthier meal options now offered at McDonald’s.
Mrs. Delmy Ustariz explained that McDonald’s in Austin had been chosen to launch the new Happy Meal Go Gurt yogurt option.
It seems that the popular golden arches franchise owners were getting requests from children and parents alike to offer another yogurt option.
So hearing the plea of their customers great minds combined to now offer these options for all Happy Meals.
Now I can order a Happy Meal with Chicken McNuggets, fries, chocolate milk, and Go Gurt.
So next time you visit your local McDonald’s you can feel good about your choices.
Did you ever wonder what it looks like behind the counter at your McDonald’s.
I felt like I was in the Wizard of Oz looking behind the wizards curtain when we were offered a tour of the kitchen.
Our group was given access to the kitchen, freezer, and to mingle with some of the staff.
Every staff member greeted us with a smile!
For 55 years McDonald’s have been serving those wonderful french fries. Go ahead indulge in those fries just in moderation.
We learned about storage of fresh ingredients, safety procedures, sanitation, and recycling efforts. In one photo you will see fresh baked cookies from the oven which bakes them is 2 minutes.
I found out that when you order your breakfast eggs at McDonald’s they use real eggs! That was important to me that my egg sandwich wasn’t made from some powder mixture like some other establishments.
You can also order your meals the way you want them in many more ways than ever before. For example ordering a McCafe just ask for non fat milk and or their sugar free vanilla flavoring.
It was such a nice tour and opened my eyes to the efforts that McDonald’s goes through offering nutritious options.
