Food: San Francisco Bans Most Happy Meals

3 Nov

San Francisco McDonald’s now serving sad meals (sorry, couldn’t help myself). Again from the Los Angeles Times, apparently the paper with its finger on the irregular pulse of our nation’s favorite grease joint:

San Francisco’s board of supervisors has voted, by a veto-proof margin, to ban most of McDonald’s Happy Meals as they are now served in the restaurants.

The measure will make San Francisco the first major city in the country to forbid restaurants from offering a free toy with meals that contain more than set levels of calories, sugar and fat.

The ordinance would also require restaurants to provide fruits and vegetables with all meals for children that come with toys.

    Note to self:

    Seen at Berkeley McDonald’s: Manager refuses to give young urban male customer BBQ sauce until he says, “Please, Big Daddy Woo.” Brilliant. I’d like to do something similar, perhaps to the tune of “Big Mami P.” Erm.

      I am amused that this bit of information is tagged “personal”.

      When are we meeting up? We can eat at McDonald’s if you’d like.

        Haha, that’s really funny; I didn’t even notice that. Must have been a Freudian slip.

        Not this coming week (Thanksgiving), but the week after is good. How about for you?
