Why, you ask? Well in doing so the staff will be forced to cook a fresh batch as McDonald’s fries are cooked in salt, meaning that you know your chips are fresh.
Simply ask for sachets on salt on the side – and be prepared to seriously annoy whoever is serving you.

Simply open up your burger or nugget box, revealing a small split down the seam of the box.
Feed the straw of your drink through the split so that the two open halves sit on top of your drinks cup.
Pour your fries into the empty side of the box, and voila! You have a portable tray table meaning you can enjoy your meal one handed.
And if you fancy nuggets in the car…

Rather than forking out £3.29 for a Big Mac instead opt for the cheaper £1.59 Double Cheeseburger.
