McDonald's is now offering Happy Meals with Hello Kitty watches. Hello Kitty watches?! Um, that's kind of awesome. Kind of awesome in a "my parents totally wouldn't have bought this for me but that doesn't matter because I have my own money" way...
I was supposed to meet up with Blondie for some Treats Truckin' and then hit up McDonalds for our watches. Alas, the McDonalds on 42nd near Madison did not have the toy. WTF? They had the display with the toy. But they were trying to unload some stupid "dog" Happy Meal Toy. Uh, no. That's not Hello, Kitty. Accept no substitutes, unless it's Chococat, My Melody, or The Little Twin Stars (ok, maybe not the Little Twin Stars, they are a bit eerily reminiscent of the Precious Moments Character--scary). FAIL.
Well, Blondie and I both had to get back to work so we decided to abort mission, but like some sort of sign from above on my walk back to the office I found myself in front of the McDonalds on 47th between Madison and Fifth Ave. Perhaps they would have watches...
And they did! I went for the 4 piece chicken nugget meal. As I was waiting for my food I glanced over at the wall and noticed that there is a prominently placed "Condiment Policy" sign.
Apparently a 4-6 nugget order warrents only one thingy of sauce. You want more sauce you pay for it. When I opened my Happy Meal back at my desk I noticed that I only received 1 packet of ketchup and one little packet of salt. Sign of the times I suppose and it's not like I needed the multiple sauce pods or handfuls of ketchup packets--though maybe 2 packets would have been nice. Still it's no wonder their profits are up.
Click for the location nearest you and don't forget to ask before you buy if they have the Hello Kitty watches. They might try to palm off some "dog" on you.
