Some of you are old enough to remember your dad splurging for family dinner at McDonald's in the 1950s.
Hamburger, fries and vanilla shake, that was my dream meal. I think that whole order cost 40 cents.
And by the way, just a side note on the Bloomberg/"Big Gulp" frenzy in New York:
in 1955 a "large" soda at McDonald's was an eye-popping, belly-filling, two-handed offering,
all of 7 ounces.
Way too much for ladies and young children, you understand….that "large" drink was the he-man size…
I'm thinking the preachers of America should take off the gloves and speak truth to today's
40-ounce "Big Gulp."
And that monster shouldn't be sold within 100 feet of a kid.
