Customer Slams McDonald’s As ‘No Longer Affordable’ After Sharing Receipt For His Regular Order

A TikTok user named Topher recently criticized McDonald’s, claiming that the fast-food chain has become “no longer affordable” due to price hikes. He shared a receipt for his usual order, which included a Smoky Double Quarter Pounder BLT burger, large fries, and a Sprite, totaling over $16. This price increase has left many wondering if food costs are on the rise.

In the United States, inflation has led to an overall increase in the cost of living, impacting food and energy prices. McDonald’s, once known for its affordable meals, now seems to be getting pricier. Topher’s video showing his $16.10 receipt garnered attention and sparked discussions online.

Some criticized the high price, comparing it to other restaurants like Five Guys. Others pointed out that rising costs throughout the supply chain contribute to these price hikes. Many viewers suggested ways to save money at McDonald’s, such as using the McDonald’s app for discounts and deals.

In these challenging economic times, it seems even fast-food giants like McDonald’s are not immune to the effects of inflation.
