Foodie links For 12/9/2011 – The McDonald’s special

I’ve had this idea knocking round in my mind for a post about McDonald’s, they are probably the best known fast food chain in the world and there are people who say that the industrialisation of the food chain is their doing. In truth, the roots of industrialisation of food started during the world wars of the last century but that’s a whole other post 😉

The problem is that every time I try to write this post it comes off sounding like it was written by some sort of dangerous fanatic. That’s not my goal, so I’ve decided to simply post some McDonald’s related videos and links to finally get this need to talk about McDonald’s out of my system.
