This both scares the crap out of me and gives me hope:
Conducted at Stanford University, the taste test had kids ages 3 to 5 enrolled in Head Start programs sample various foods. Some were packaged in McDonaldâ€™s wrappers some were not. Nearly anything that the kids thought was made by McDonald’s â€“ even carrots or apple juice â€“ was deemed tastier by the kids than the non-McDonalds sample.
It scares the crap out of me that anyone would consider McDonald’s carrots better than normal carrots.
However, I have hope since I know few adults who share the same perceptions of McDonald’s food. Everyone I know who goes to McDonald’s goes out of convenience rather than taste. If you’re in Menomonie, WI and hungry, it’s not a bad option. However, it’s certainly not every day food.
