Mickey D's Sweet Tea...

Mmm. Tea.




Wait, wtf? What is this crap?!

Yesterday I went to the mall with R-, you know, in celebration of the sun finally being out in Seattle (hey, it was 83 degrees. We had to go inside the air conditioned mall...don't hate) and AS ANY SELF-RESPECTING AMERICAN would do, we went to get McDonald's. You know, the 380 calorie Medium size fries and the 230 calorie $1 sweet tea? The goods.

Okay, well I had never had the sweet tea before but hey, I'm Asian, I like tea. And sugar? I ain't complainin'.

But when I got this drink, no one told me that it contained 59 GRAMS OF SUGAR. I felt like a hummingbird. And although the same size Coca Cola contains something ridick like 86 grams of sugar...it was just horrifying in a tea.

Don't get me wrong, I am all for junk/fast food in moderation. I LOVE JUNK FOOD. But really McDonald's? Really? Did you REALLY just feel like you had to ruin the one thing that could have possibly been non-detrimental to one's health?

Ugh.

And THANKS FOR MAKING THE "LEMON AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST" THE SMALLEST, THINNEST SIZED FONT IN THE BOTTOM LEFT HAND CORNER OF THE AD.

I'm really passionate about lemons.
