Potato Turnovers

Australians are being vigorously urged to boycott McDonald’s French fries and hash browns, because they will no longer be made with Aussie potatoes.

However, in showing support for Australian produce and products, and the humble spud in particular, no-one is bothering to mention the McDonald’s apple turnover.

By all means boycott the fries and the hash browns, but don’t forget that the McDonald’s apple turnover is filled with apple flavoured potatoes! There is not even a token whiff of apple to be found in their famous turnovers!

So, give up the fries and the hash, but don't forget to boycott their Potato Turnovers too!


  1. never knew Macdonald's was Australian and how come you guys get to eat our stuff? just don't write about blue jeans or bubble gum and other things, I know you will not mention baseball or American hot dogs!

  2. euroyank - hee, hee.

    They've decided to buy potatoes from New Zealand, instead of Tasmania - can you believe that!

  3. Maybe we should boycott New Zealand as well, just to be on the safe side.

  4. turnovers...yummmm :-)

  5. euroyank - forgot to mention: we get your left overs, that's why we get to eat your stuff!

    And we have "Australian hotdogs"!

  6. I guess that makes Mcdonald's fries not "Austrailia's favorite fries" anymore..

    That's surprising, I didn't have a clue.

    I never go to McDonalds anyway. I don't like fastfood.

    This is sad, I know, but there's something about your blog and even your clip art icon that turns me on. Can't put my finger on it, though.
