Must have been big news because I had like 5+ customers asking me at work why McDonalds is discontinueing the Super Size.

Brilliant. Good PR (disassociates them from the fatties) and now the fatties have to buy two to get their whale portions. Now if only they could start serving edible food, healthy or not.

I can't say I'll miss it. Seems everything is going the super jumbo way now. I keep having to buy the smaller, more expensive 330 mL glass bottle of root beer at the local pizza place over their 99 cent 1.2 L fountain cup just cause I don't want to chug 2.5 lbs of liquid sugar.

This is McDonald's way of getting back at all the whining fat people. Now you can't blame them for being fat plus you'd have have 2 orders of fries with your meal.

Wonder what will be next. Boiled fries?:p

where are there mcd's with supersizes for just $0.39 anymore? last couple years, every place i've been to has the different size upgrades (med, large, and supersize) with supersizing being $0.69 or something like that.

Now that they are getting healthier by getting rid of super size.... maybe they will go back to the original oil and have some good fries for a change.

Will they upsize the large to accomodate this? You're almost certainly a fat piece of sh*t if you supersize anyway, unless you're a young person living in a fantasy wherein you'll be able to eat like you currently do and never get fat later in life.

BTW mcdonalds fries ARE king.

I swear to God, portion sizes in the US are OBSCENE. They are larger than in Canada - noticeably so. I've had plates come out that would feed a batallion.

I :heart: Wendy's fries.. I like not having to crunch through a layer of salt prior to getting to the potato.. That, and they're great for dipping in Chili... Mmm.. Wendy's Chili...

Rather than supersizing fries are they just gonna have different sizes? Small medium and large?

Nothing, and I mean nothing, compares to Braum's old style crinkle fries. I could eat those exclusively and never get tired of them.
you are correct, sir.

Big deal, people will simply order more food to make up for the lack of a supersize. Either that or they'll walk across the street to another fast food joint which still does supersize.
