    I love the McDouble.

    It's the best fast food to eat in the car between assignments or on the way home after a shift. It tastes good and there's nothing to fall out onto your lap.

    Two McDoubles and a $1 large sweet tea is my usual late-night commute meal.

    It's been proven time and time again that everything in a McDonalds hamburger is so full of preservatives and "food" that it looks exactly the same a year later.
    Sorry, that's "nutrition" I will skip on.

    That Post column reads like Dick Young wrote it.

    That's 1000 calories.
    If I'm eating 1,000 calorie meal, it's gonna be a lot more than that.

    Sorry, dude. Read this -- http://aht.seriouseats.com/archives/2010/11/the-burger-lab-revisiting-the-myth-of-the-12-year-old-burger-testing-results.html -- and take your nonsense somewhere else.

    A.) Exactly.

    2.) You might want to pass on it, but where else can you get 390 calories for a buck?

    This beauty here is not only marvelously tasty, but also racks up 470 glorious calories at Del Taco (if you have one nearby...) for just 99 cents!

    What does this have to do with nutrition? A standard Snickers bar has 250 calories. I can get two of them for a buck. So I bought 500 calories. Your McDonald's 390 can suck it.

    Love the McDoubles, but damn, I wish they'd ease up on the salt.

    Not everyone likes a little burger with their salt. That's what salt packets are for. :p

    According to McDonald's:

    If you’re watching how much sodium you eat, try the tips
    below the next time you’re at McDonald’s®.
    • Request hamburgers without grill seasoning, which contains a mix of
    salt and pepper.
    • Ask for French fries without added salt.
    • Don’t add salt at the table.
    • Skip or go light on sandwich condiments such as ketchup, mustard,
    pickles, sauces and dressings.
    • Use a smaller amount of salad dressings.
    • Order sandwiches without cheese. You’ll save 230 mg for each slice
    of American cheese.
    • Choose menu items made without sausage or bacon

    When the hell did the goal become to pack the most calories per dollar? Last I checked, calorie deficiency was most certainly not the problem in this country, indeed pretty much the opposite of the problem.

    I'd be more curious to know what foods pack the most value in terms of nutrients per dollar. Any answers?
